Hubby and i were discussing which of the 4 parks we'll visit on day 1 of our visit in oct. hubby says Epcot, me, i don't really care as long as i'm at DW, so the question MW's is 'Which park do you visit on your day 1 and why? I've noticed in the past few months via your posts AK seems to be the preferred park on day 1 followed by Epcot

We ALWAYS do MK on day one. Once we go through the train station tunnel, make the turn on to Main Street and first see the castle, we know we've really arrived at WDW. - EXP626  24.7 #145 8:23AM
For me it really depends on where we are staying, what park has EMH and where we have dinner reservations. In August the first park we went to was MK because we stayed at BLT and it had EMH however the first park we are going to this trip, will be Epcot on tuseday since it has EMH that night. - nodell111  166.4 #51 3:45AM
We're from WNY so out trip down is a total of 22 hours driving. So we break it up and get to NC and sleep then get up early and get to disney. But with all the stops on the way we get to disney about 2-4, if its later we just get settled and hit DTD, if its early we visit MK. We always get the hopper pass so we can go where we feel. Good question! - ariel116  99.3 #68 4:00AM
Day 1 and the last day for us (unless there are time constraints) is MK, hands down!! - mrsincredible  1051.8 #4 4:29AM
We always go to EPCOT day one. Not sure why, but now tradition. - DisneyLisa78  44.5 #107 5:30AM
We usually go downtown because we get in late on sat - 5disneylovers  985.8 #5 6:02AM
The first full day we go where ever - 5disneylovers  985.8 #5 6:06AM
this last time we went to AK on our first day. we try to pick which park has the EMH. We like to always do MK on the last day :-) - ncjal  261.0 #28 6:10AM
We try to go to MK or DTD... - Scothran  87.6 #76 6:16AM
The last time we went with the kids we had an early early flight. It was a 7 am flight which meant I had to have 6 kids ready and out the door at 3am to get to airport on time. Since we were arriving at disney @ 1130 we figured we could do Epcot and booked garden grill for a nice lunch. Every one did great till about 7 then energy dropped. We made it till illuminations and it was postponed for some reason and we ended up leaving @ 930. I wish we wold have done it differently. Sorry for rambling. This last time with just my husband and I we traveled late at night and did ak our first full day because the park is not open as late and it gave us some down time after our travel day. Have a great day - mmddgp  620.0 #10 6:57AM
We will be doing Magic Kingdom first, but that is because we have a tradition of riding Big Thunder Mountain first. - luvthemouse  211.4 #1780 7:11AM
I usually begin and end my visit at Magic Kingdom, where it all began. My second full day, and second to last day, is usually Epcot. Hollywood Studios & Animal Kingdom (along with more MK & Epcot) are in the middle. I love park hoppers because they allow me to easily split my day between 2 or 3 (I've never attempted 4) parks! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.5 #3 7:33AM
Arrival day is usually DTD but first full day is always MK! First ride is space mountain! - girlonfire  54.1 #97 8:36AM
We do DTD the day we arrive . It's usually in the afternoon & don't have time to do a park but can do Downtown !!!! - skcanfield  501.4 #16 11:36AM
We usually visit AK or Epcot first. Although MK is our favorite we save it for some reason. Plus we have kids and even though they r 11 & 12 now, we usually like to start off slow. - Staceymouse  11.1 #230 12:05PM
We always go to MK on our first and last day. - Pooh147856  270.0 #26 12:09PM
We always go to ak to eat at flametree bbq so good - jeri814  122.1 #63 12:20PM
We always go to the one with emh - purplelooney  10.7 #233 12:32PM
We always park hop, so HS and MK are our first day parks. - Lelundrial  569.4 #335 1:54PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  128.1 #2969 3:57PM
