Whether you are interested in thrilling roller coasters, seeing shows, shopping, or even seeing fireworks, there's absolutely something for all visitors to enjoy.
Walking Around Disney's Hollywood Studios
For Hollywood Studios, the park is split into 8 sections! Although that is more sections than Magic Kingdom, it's a lot easier and faster to navigate around.
There's one thing that you must do first to get the most out of your day:
For Hollywood Studios, guests will want to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge first. This ride is guaranteed to be the most packed, and once you know this out of the way, the rest of your day goes by much quicker.
We'd also recommend starting from the back of the park and work your way towards the front, as you spend your day at the park.
As most guests enter the park, they tend to hand around the front and work towards the back as they go through their day. You'd essentially be going in reverse, and it'll allow you to avoid a most of the larger crowd.

Walking Around Animal Kingdom

One of the nicer features of Animal Kingdom is that it tailors to all ages. The visual aspect of the park, along with the safari tours and areas where guests can simply walk around (such as Pandora: World of Avatar) make it perfect for younger kids and families.
For teens and adults, there are many thrilling rides including Avatar Flight of Passage and Dinosaur that will create unforgettable experiences. Additionally, there are shows, and lounges for a more laid-back experience.
Walking Around EPCOT
EPCOT is split into two different parts, Future World and World Showcase.
