One day at Disney? Which park?

I will be traveling to Florida and will have one day to visit Disney! Which park should I choose? I've been to Disney several times but we have stayed for 7 days or more. I'm also visiting with someone who hasn't been to Disney in over 15 years...HELP!!! also.....is there any cheap tickets out there for a one day visit?? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I'd have to go with the classic Magic Kingdom experience if I had one day only. Must see the Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Space Mountain, walk through Cinderella's Castle, and take a picture of the statue of Walt and Mickey. Talk with as many Cast Members as you can, they go through hours and hours of training to add to the experience, take advantage of them!

And Haunted Mansion! Can't miss that one!

I had the same dilemma few years ago. I was living on the west side of Florida for the summer and had one day with my bff in Orlando. We ended up going to MK. It was the best way (in our opinion) to get the Disney experience in such a quick trip.

Good luck!

Yes to all of this! MK is not my favorite park, Epcot is. But MK has the most "magic" to offer you for a one day trip, for all of the reasons listed above. It's not Disney if I can't ride Pirates and the Haunted Mansion.

I had this problem before and chose to get a park hopper added for the day so I didnt have to miss out on the extended hours at epcot and still did mk too!

Try undercover tourist . If you can add the park hopper - then I would spend most of the day at mk and hop over to Epcot for a couple of hours in the evening .
