Disney World in One Day

Hi, me and my friend is going to planning to Disney World in one day, all the four parks. It's important to remember that we are two students aging 20 and 21, not a family on 4. We are tourist and we will not visit Florida again in the near future, so we want to experience all 4 parks. We are staying in Miami Beach, so we will get up early to drive to Disney World.

Any suggestions to our time plan and/or must sees?

Time plan:

Magic Kingdom (9.00 AM - 1.00 PM)

Animal Kingdom (1.00 PM - 3.00 PM)

Hollywood Studios (3.00 PM - 6.00 PM)

Epcot (6.00 PM - 8.00 PM)

We are going on 27 January, these are the opening hours:

Magic Kingdom (Closes 8.00 PM)

Epcot (Closes 9.00 PM)

Hollywood Studios (Closes 9.00 PM) - Late Magic Hours

Animal Kingdom (Closes 5.00 PM)

Not a good idea. What you'll end up with is a blur. There is simply too much to absorb in one day. My suggestion would be to only visit two parks, Magic Kingdom and Epcot. You will want to be at the Magic Kingdom by 8:00 as it will take 20+ minutes to get from your car to the park entrance at least 30 minutes before the park opens. You'll also be able to take the monorail to Epcot and then back to your car at the end of the day.

You know it's a four hour drive from Miami to Orlando? And then after the parks you plan on driving back to Miami? yikes

It can take up to an hour or so to travel between parks. Stick to 2 parks 4 is unrealistic.

This is totally unrealistic and NOT doable.

Do some research to see what you are up against.
