6 Hours - What MUST I see at Disneyworld?

By
Real Estate Agent with Homebuyer Representation, Inc. DRE# 5467433

tiggerOK. I'm here at downtown Disney in Orlando but will be in meetings for most of my stay here.

I might be able to spend 6 hours in the park (One park) after 4pm Wednesday or Thursday.

What MUST I see? I've never been here before and know that wandering aimlessly would be a waste of my time.

So, those of you who are in the know... How can I best maximize my little time? What rides and events are "Must See"?

THANKS TO ALL!

 

Ben

Tom - I've heard Epcot is the best. I'd like to ride a few good rides as well. Know any good rides? I was told I should ride the Aerosmith ride. Are they even in the same park? As I said, I've never been here before.

If you want something more that an adult would enjoy check out epcot like Tom said. Its more cultural and interesting, kids would hate it most likely. I am sure there are bolder spots though, I dont know what.

Shane - No kids. Just me. I'll likely spend most time at Epcot. I'm wondering if there are a few thrill rides or theme rides I could fit in. I saw one called "Test Track" that sounds cool. Also one where you hangglide in a virtual reality. I just don't know where they are located in respect to Epcot Center. I'll only have the one half-day so it will all have to be in one park.

Hop a water taxi to Epcot Center.  You will find international restaurants, entertainment and stores, as well as amusement-type stuff.  At night they have fireworks on the lake when weather is nice.  We spent a day at Disney World, one at MGM, and once we hit Epcot, we just kept going back there.  It was the best, and we look forward to going back just for that.

I would recommend Universal Studios.  If you are a movie fan that is the place to go.

I lived in Orlando for several years...and if I can choose one park to visit again when I have a short time, I would choose Animal Kingdom. Now that the weather is cooler, the animals are friskier. It's a tremendous experience --- like being in the African bush. It's nothing like the other theme parks.

But if you must choose another park besides Animal Kingdom, go to Epcot. It's like going around the world in one day. Stick around for the laser show before the park closes. It's the best!

If lines are like they used to be, they you don't have time to do much other than wonder around the park and look but don't ride.  A little refreshment on Main Street and you'll be done. 

I agree that Epcot is better unless you have small kids.

Morning Ben,

I agree that Epcot is the best park for Adults to visit. However if you are limited on time and want sure, quick fun and entertainment, then Animal Kingdom or Universal are the places to go.

If you decide to go to Epcot, your visit will be completed with the best fireworks/lazor production you have ever seen.

Enjoy your stay.

Benjamin:  Looks like you got some great suggestions already, I'll throw my vote in for Epcot.  Let us know how your visit goes.  Would love to see a blog about it.

Gosh, I wish I had seen this earlier! Epcot is dull, dull, dull. Go to the Magic Kingdom and pretend you are a kid! Don't miss Mickey's Philharmonic in Fantasyland.

I am glad you made it to Orlando. Epcot was not even built since I was last in there. I hope you had fun and learned a few things as well.

I had a great time and have much to write about. Unfortunately (Fortunately?) I've been working non-stop from about 6 am - midnight every day since I've been back. It will come!
