    Thumbs up All Four Disney World Parks in One Day! (PHOTO HEAVY)

    So last week my family and I took a trip to Florida. The last time I went to Florida was in 2001, specifically for Walt Disney World (did 4 parks and 2 water parks in a week). This time it was a little different. We were to spend time in Orlando, Miami, and Key West. That meant only one day for Walt Disney World. Our plan was to visit Animal Kingdom and EPCOT. My sister and I love theme parks and have lots of energy to spare, my parents, not so much. The not-so-genius plan was to take a red eye to Orlando and start off right away. I didn't prefer it but I like a challenge. This resulted in my father going back to the hotel after Animal Kingdom and my mother after EPCOT. My sister and I, full of excitement, decided to squeeze in Disney's Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom because there were attractions we haven't done. The result was being awake for over 40 hours and memories worth the exhaustion. No regrets at all.Nearly 12 years later, I finally returned to the Walt Disney World resort:Sunrise from our hotel:Attachment 29300Park #1!:Attachment 29301Pic of me at the boring gate with awful lighting:Name:  Gl4OFLS.jpg

Size:  89.0 KBYes we were tired, and no I didn't see the rest of the new Fantasyland. We didn't mind parking hopping around the way we did since we have been to Disney World, and the main idea was to experience things we favored and things that were new to us (and didn't suck, no Stich's Great Escape for us). The next day we visited Islands of Adventure for the first time, that TR will go in the proper forum. Thanks for wasting time with me! We had an amazing time!

    Now I'm tired after reading this! Sounds like a great - if short - Disney trip.

    Ugh, I apologize for the awful format. Was having problems. I tried editing some 4 times but it was getting worse and worse. May fix later...

    I don't think I'll be allowed to step foot in the French pavilion again.

    That was a really fun read. I leave tomorrow for an extended weekend in the World, so your pics were extra cool. But the whole time I kept coming back to the fact that you did all of that IN ONE DAY! I don't begin to have the energy to do that anymore - I'll be lucky to see all of that in 4 days!!!

    I don't know when I will be in Orlando again, so I made sure to park hop the hell out of those passes. Enjoy your trip!

    Thanks for sharing that TR! It's been a number of years since I've been to WDW and I'll be tempted to quadruple park hop next time I go.
