  • One day at Disney World! What should I choose?

    OK I have a spur of the moment weekend trip to Disney.. I don't know if i will have time Sunday to go to a park or not.. but i should have all day Saturday.. I have been to Disney World quite a few times... and I am deciding between EPCOT for the wine & food festival which i have never seen or been to before... or should i go to Magic Kingdom and check out the new Haunted Mansion and have a good time there? its a tough decision, i am leaning towards Magic Kingdom.

    It is a tough decision, but if you are leaning towards the MK, then I would recommend going there. The HM does not disappoint, and, it is likely that some or all of the Christmas decorations will be up by then.

    Have a great time whatever you decide!

      I'd go to Epcot. But that's just me.

        Do both? I say get a parkhopper, start at MK, do mansion and finish the day with some nice lamb from Epcot

          I would actually start at Epcot (or start at the MK and then head over to Epcot for lunch). The evening will be SLAMMED. Then head back to the MK after you eat.

          If I had to choose just one of the two parks, I almost would always go with Epcot. But the Haunted Mansion is wonderful, and so is the Food and Wine. I'd get the hopper.

            hmm the park hopper seems pretty expensive for one day.. i think i am goign to look more into the food/wine festival.. HM will always be around =) I also didn't get to ride Soarin last time i went and i have never been on it. At least this is a decision I will not regret either way. I know I will be happy to spend a day in Disney! Thanks for your help everyone

              Start the Food and Wine by around noonish if you can. The lines at night really can be so long. I think that is a great idea, though (going to Epcot!) Also, both parks might be more crowded than normal with Super Soap Weekend being at MGM this weekend.

                I would get a parkhopper like Summer said, and I would try to just do a whirlwind tour of each park... start at AK hit Everest, then go to MGM and get on ToT and Aerosmith, then go to Epcot and go on Mission Space and Test Track, then finish off at MK with the rides there and Wishes...

                  $125 is a lot for one day at the parks, unless you aren't coming back for a long time. If you were planning on coming back within a year, I'd probably say spring for an annual pass (though they have gone up so much in price in the last couple of years).

                  It was so nice when they had the regular park hoppers that didn't expire (without paying extra for the non-expire portion).

                    I still have not decided.. but I am going to be heading out now.. doing the long drive over from Birmingham, I will let you all know what i decided later. I am really glad to be getting back over to Disney this year, even for just a day

                      I just did that this week! I was in Hartselle for a day. I drove up following the directions given by mapquest and then I drove back taking the interstates. The return trip was longer in miles, but it took less time. Either way, it's a long drive. Have fun.

                          Wow, it's up to that much? Geez, go to Epcot, enjoy the festival, spend the difference on the food. :P

                            I don't have the exact prices in front of me, but it's about $76 for a one day base ticket, and $47 for a hopper add-on (approx). So just about $125.00!

                            I would also go for Epcot and use the rest for food and wine. Or towards an AP if coming in again within the year. That is SO much money just for a one-day pass.

                              Well I had a really great time this weekend! thank for y'alls help! I actually got in for free which was wonderful! One of our friends works at chef mickey's and took us in to the magic kingdom! I kind of wish i park hopped over to EPCOT for a bit to check out the festival since the tickets had a park hopper on it, but I got to do everything I wanted at the Magic Kingdom! I really loved the new Haunted Mansion, rode on it twice! I really wish I knew what was behind that one door that is bulging with a green light behind it! If I somehow end up in the haunted mansion when I die maybe I can go see who is behind that door, must be a fun party!

                              I also spent some time in downtown disney.

                              There were lots of chalk artists out, and the art work was beautiful!

                              My friend made her own chalk drawing of Ariel, which came out beautifully.

                              It really was a lot of driving, and next time iw ill take that advice of taking the highways. A coworkers dad drives trucks from Birmingham to Orlando and says on the interstates it takes 7 and half hours, which is an hour less time then my trip was!
                              I definitely plan to go back again soon.. maybe in the winter or spring. It was nice seeing the park full of the Christmas spirit on main street
