    Cool 1 Day 1 Park and a its Your Choice!

    I just found out that I will be traveling to Orlando in the first week of November for a week long conference for work. I am supposed to fly back home on Saturday but I cant travel this close to Walt Disney World and not visit!

    This is where you come in. I want your suggestions and input as to which Park to visit for my one day in the world.

    Have Fun with this!

    Re: 1 Day 1 Park and a its Your Choice!

    Most of the times I've been to Disney I've only been able to do one day at one park. My family drives to Orlando every March, but they don't go to Disney World. I can't be that close and NOT go but in the past I've only been able to afford to do just one day (I've been a University student for the past 6 years). MK almost always wins out... if I get a second day in then it's always Epcot, but once the only park I did was Epcot. It just seems wrong though to NOT do MK... can you imagine going and not seeing the castle?

    MK is a must for me. But Epcot is a really close second.

    Re: 1 Day 1 Park and a its Your Choice!

    When I took my DS down for the college program we hit 4 parks in a day and a half. MK and Epcot twice. We saw just about everything we wanted to.

    After I attended his drop off induction to the CP I went back to Epcot that afternoon. Epcot is real easy to be a lone traveler. Several single rider lanes, fast passes help also. If you do Epcot get the Soar'n fast past first thing (and then jump on the Land). I ate at Germany as they seat you with other people. I walked the back end in the evening, saw the stores and movies I wanted to etc.

    But boy, I'd have a hard time not doing MK. I did a convention a few years back in Orlando at the Convention Center and I did Universal parks in the evening once my seminars were over for the day. That might be an option for you in the evenings.

    .
    Can you get a hopper pass for just one day? I thought you couldn't... although I'm looking at the Disney website and it seems like you can. It's a lot pricier though, $84 turns into $130. But that is an option... I don't think I would do 4 parks in one day (I've done it before and its crazy and I felt like I spent half the day traveling) but you could definitely do two parks. But, it is quite a bit of the price increase...

    One day alone in the parks is a nobrainer for me. Walk around through the Magic Kingdom with Lou's Audio guides You'll get alot of strange looks...but it's fun

    EPCOT. If I only have one day, trying to fit in one of the parks with lots of attractions would be stressful. But Epcot is relaxing... eat and drink around the world, take in the sights of the different countries, and ride a few rides if you have time. It's my personal favorite so if I were in your shoes, that's the one I'd go with.

    It's a really difficult decision but it would be between Magic Kingdom and Epcot, those are my favorites. I think Epcot would have the edge because I think Food and Wine Festival will be still going on in the first week of November
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    Oh good golly, that changes everything! If food and wine is on than I change my vote to Epcot. Hands down!

    EPCOT has always been our favorite.
