Just upgraded tickets to hoppers. We arrive 3/2 at 1pm and will be at the parks 3/3-3/4 We want to spend the most time at MK. Are the parks going to be busy and would that make going to all 4 parks impossible? Any ideas on how to fit all 4 in?

Hi Rachel! As someone who has visited all 4 Disney theme parks in one day, get ready for a whirlwind adventure!
Since you mentioned spending most of your vacation at Magic Kingdom Park, I checked the online calendar
for March 3rd and 4th. Rope drop is at 9am both days and closing is planned for 12am on the 3rd and 11pm on the 4th. You'll want to arrive early and proceed to your favorite attractions upon park opening.
If you're staying onsite, I would recommend taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours
for extended touring time outside of the general operating schedule. This would allow you to experience some of the most popular attractions with little to no wait.
Also, be sure to take advantage of the free FastPASS service
which saves a virtual place in line for you while your off enjoying the remainder of the park. Simply return to the attraction at the time printed on your FastPASS and off to Neverland you go!

Remember to wear comfortable shoes, drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks. Beginning a walking program at home in the weeks leading up to your vacation may also help with the added mileage you'll be putting on your sneakers once you're in The Happiest Place on Earth!
