What WDW park to do in 1/2 days?


I'm going next month with my BF, we're 20 & 21 and love the thought of going on rollercoasters all day, we're staying at Hard Rock Hotel so will mainly be doing US and IOA.

Though, we plan to visit Disney at some point, can anybody suggest which parks are best to go to? we may only spend a day or two doing Disney.

I haven't ever done Disney before so don't know what rides there are or what there is to see.

Thanks you guys :)

I would agree with Mutter. Animal Kingdom has Expedition Everest and Hollywood Studios has Rockin Roller Coaster as well as Hollywood Tower of Terror. The rides mentioned are great for 1/2 of thrills.

If you wish to drive down to Tampa, Busch Gardens has some amazing rollercoasters.

It depends what you're looking for. Rides at WDW are generally not the thrill-ride type like those at Universal, with the exception of Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom and Tower of Terror and Rockin Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios, as mentioned above. If you want excitement, I'd say go to Hollywood Studios; they have the rides plus lots of fun shows and experiences, and is the "hippest" of the parks. Epcot is beautiful and relaxing, but more for education, food, and shopping, while Magic Kingdom brings you back to your childhood and is delightful if that's your thing. Animal Kingdom is huge, very spread out, but doesn't have a ton to do, though what they do have is fun.

Have a great time; hope this helps!
