It sounded crazy when I first heard of it. Visit all four Walt Disney World theme parks in a single day? I had stumbled upon a Disney Four Parks Challenge video on YouTube sometime in October. As usual, that one video lead to another … and another. I soon realized that visiting four parks in one day was not just NOT crazy, it actually looked like a lot of fun!
My mom’s birthday was coming up on Thanksgiving day and I decided this would be the perfect surprise gift for her, just a little something in return for all those years she took us kids to Walt Disney World.

2020 Disney Trip Must-Have’s!
It seems that no two guests tackle the Four Parks Challenge alike. Some aim to ride the top three or five popular attractions in each park. Others do a ride, snack, pin trade, and character meeting (or any combination) at each park. Our goal was simply to enjoy our favorite attractions and capture the essence of each park, keeping it stress-free and rules-free.
Since the trip was Mom’s birthday gift, we just did what Mom wanted to do! Our only required activity in each park was taking our photo in front of each park’s signature landmark. Our stress-free strategy totally worked and we had a thoroughly enjoyable day! Sure, our feet were a little sore at the end of the day, but no more than a regular one-park Disney day. We enjoyed the entire day and made memories to last a lifetime.
