The 5 Day Magic Your Way with Park Hopper and Water Park Fun and More with No Expiration is a great way to experience everything Disney has to offer in a way with all of the flexibility that allows guests to get the most out of their time and experience. Guests can visit any combination of Disney parks within the same day and, since the ticket doesn’t expire, if you can’t use all five of your days in one trip, you can split your days however you want.
There is so much to do at Walt Disney World that it can be tough to decide what to do. While how you spend your vacation time is up to you, here’s one recommended itinerary:
Day 1: Spend your first day at Walt Disney World experiencing some of Disney’s most classic attractions, including Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, The Haunted Mansion, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan’s Flight, and It’s a Small World among others. Explore the newly expanded Fantasyland and see Cinderella’s Castle up close.
Day 2: Spend the morning at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Ride Kilimanjaro Safari’s and walk the many animal trails throughout the park. If there is time ride Himalaya or Dinosaur. If you prefer something slower, experience it’s Tough to be a Bug. In the afternoon, head to one of the waterparks. While both offer similar attractions, they have decidedly different themes. If you like plenty of shade and sandy beaches, you’ll love Typhoon Lagoon. If you’re more a speed demon who enjoys plenty of sunshine at a ski resort, then Blizzard Beach is the place to go. In the evening, take in one of the nighttime shows at The Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Epcot if you’re not feeling too exhausted from such an exciting day.
Day 3: Spend the day at Epcot. Start out in the World Showcase and work your way around the World Showcase Lagoon as you visit eleven nations. After dinner at one of the World Showcase restaurants, move into Future World to experience Spaceship Earth, Soarin’, and Test Track among others. Stay for Illuminations, Epcot’s nightly show on and around the World Showcase Lagoon.
Day 4: Spend the morning at whichever waterpark you haven’t yet experienced or do some souvenir shopping at Downtown Disney. Have lunch at one of the many restaurants here and then spend a few hours enjoying Disneyquest. In the evening, visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Some of its biggest thrills are best experienced at night! The lines are generally shorter then, too. Stay for Fantasmic at closing.
Day 5: Make day 5 choice day. Visit your favorite park again or spend the day hopping from park to park and enjoying your favorite attractions one more time. This is also a good day to catch up on the stuff that you missed on the previous days. Don’t forget to get in some souvenir shopping.
