My mom has been battling cancer off and on for the past 8 years. She has led a sheltered life and has never flown even though she is 57 years old. I am taking her to DW for our first trips ever! We are disneyland regulars, and we only have 2 days at DW, so I need advice. We don't need to catch attractions that are identical to DL. I am thinking of spending one day at magic kingdom and one at Epcot. Would a park hopper be a better idea? Is there even enough time to briefly hit the other parks? What rides are a must for someone who is a DL regular?

MK is a lot like DL . I would get the park hopper & do AK & HS one day , then hit MK& Epcot !!! I think Illumination at Epcot is a must see !!!! - skcanfield  589.2 #14 10:59AM
Skip MK! Just a giant Disneyland - timonT  424.6 #21 1:25PM
DHS and AK can be done in less than a day, but of course (even if u were there 5 days) you cant do every single thing there. for a two day trip though I would say EPCOT and MK are perfect. Both are my favorite parks. EPCOT is a whole different experience and I would do everything there! MK though, has a lot of similar rides. You can download a PDF map, or I can e mail you one, or you can make a free personalized map on DW's website for just the things you want to do so you can make a list. I hope you and your mother has an amazing time, she is a strong woman! - ariel116  103.7 #71 10:53AM
And park hopper is a must for us because we love the monorail, but it's your call (: - ariel116  103.7 #71 10:54AM
Thanks for the great advice! Maybe a park hopper just to ride the Himalayas mountain thing--that seems really cool. I think I might finish w dmk in less than a day if I only focus on rides that are different from DL. - atarango  10.9 #10979 10:57AM
Do Epcot, it actually needs two days. It's a lot of walking too! I'd recommend MK one day and Epcot the other, but that's my personal experience after seeing all 4 parks. My kids wouldn't let us miss HS and AK. A park hopper is a good option if your time is limited, just remember to get from one park to another can take a lot of time! - DizneyGirl  1120.5 #8 11:47AM
Agree! Time and energy! - mmddgp  1282.9 #5 1:21PM
Yeah I think park hopper. I'm a DL frequent also and MK is a lot of the same. It's cool to see how much more spread out is is than DL but you can skip some of the rides there to save time.. AK isn't a full day either and is cool to check out. If you go super early, when it opens, you can do the safari ride easy and then hit some of the others, like dinosaur and expedition Everest. Epcot can take awhile but if to just briefly walk through the countries you can get it done fast too. I agree with getting a map and checking all the things out before you go so then you can go in order and not be back tracking all over the park! And HS is also something you can get done in a few hours.... Don't ride toy story or TOT and that will save time too :) - brodysmommy  454.0 #517 1:44PM
For two days, get a park hopper. Epcot is a must, and try to get Animal Kingdom in there! - goofygal  12605.1 #7 7:27PM
Thanks for all the advice! I think I'll do MK and AK in one day and skip HS. I can ride most of those rides here in CA and I can go to Hollywood studios to get my hollywood fix. And it looks like Epcot will take a full day to tackle. I'll do my best with the time I have. Now, should I make reservations at a restaurant? I like to sit down and enjoy the ambiance at Bleu Bayou, so are there any places at DW that definitely should not be missed? I don't want to eat too extravagantly, I just like to rest my feet and take in some ambiance. What do you recommend? - atarango  10.9 #10979 10:05PM
