    If you only had 1 day at WDW what would you do? would you do 2 parks in one day and just do your favorite things or would you pick one park and stay all day.

    myself, i would go to MK and stay there all day. as a non-driver, to me, hopping from park to park takes too much time. but i walk slow. but to get from say - world showcase, out to the front of the park, jump on the monorail, get to MK, pass security and into the already crowded park, you would lose about 2 hrs.....so i would stay in one park...probably MK

    what would you do?

    I'm with you Susan, it would definately be a day in Magic Kingdom. I love the atmosphere and magic of the park and could quite happily sit and people watch once i'd done the rides I wanted to. I'd possibly spilit MK and AK, Oooo decisions, decisions :)

    Well, what would I do, it would be between Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. I love Wold Showcase and we do spend a lot of time there normally, but at the Magic Kingdom, there is just something, well, magical.

    Oh I don't know :mental: I guess I would have to go to both as I wouldn't be able to decide :lol:

    I think it would depend on what time of year I was there and whether or not you are talking about having to buy a 1 day park hopper or if I could use my AP. During F&W and probably during Christmas season I would have to pick EPCOT.

    Hollywood Studios is the only park I would do and then the evening would be spent at DTD. Bliss....

    World Showcase at EPCOT for me - in through the IG and there alllllllllll day - watching performers, shopping around, tasting their wares...ending with a spectacular view of Illuminations - I LOVE that show. PERFECT DAY.

    Park hopping (at least for us) always SEEMS like a good idea - in theory. But usually, especially when the parks are crowded, it takes so much more time and effort than expected that it's rarely worth it. I prefer to pick a park and stick with it - barring extenuating circumstances.
