Thanks. It will be two days to remember for sure. No problem about the Birthday Buttons as they got us picked at Ollivander's last year & I never don't wear them at Disney either.

I have tweaked plans a tad in order to be able to accomplish everything. If you have any other ideas, let me know. But know I cannot drive & I can't cancel Le Cellier, other than that any ideas would be appreciated. Here are my plans in a more realistic time frame.

7:45- MK Rope Drop
8:00- Buzz Lightyear
8:15- Walk to Contemporary & Catch bus to DHS
9:00- Toy Story Mania
10:30- Dinosaur
11:15- Mission Space
12:15- Le Cellier(Hopefully I may be able to get in a little earlier & i'm by myself eating just an entree & head out the door quickly to save time)
1:15- AoA
2:20- Mears to Universal
3:15- Universal to activate Power Pass & buy HHN ticket
3:25- SAC for Impact VIP Ticket
3:35- MiB SRL
4:00- Spiderman SRL
5:00- Get into Impact Taping Line
8:00- Impact Tapings
10:15- HRC
11:20 or 12:20- Mears back to AoA

Looks like I just got a sort of break. I don't have to be in the Impact line until 6 so that gives me a little more time to accomplish my goal. I'm feeling a lot better about this plan now.

busses will go to contemporary and GF and Poly for pick ups before they head out to dhs.
that could take some time away from your schedule.

would taking the monorail from mk to ep, then bussing or walking to dhs from epcot be more of a time savor for you?

With the extra hour of time I now have, I might have time to take the Monorail to TTC & then the bus to DHS then continue on my mission. Not having to be in line until 6 makes everything a whole lot easier to accomplish.

FWIW, I've done Busch Gardens and Universal Studios in one day, and got to do a ton of the major attractions at BG and some at Uni. You seem pretty set in what you wanna do, so all I say is: Godspeed!

I was reading this thread not looking at the dates and was going to post that I thought the transportation time was going to eat up a lot of time. Disney bus service is hit or miss (we've waited a long time for buses sometimes). Glad to see that you took a cab to Universal.

Rides were not the issue because you were doing a lot of single rider.

great job!

Actually you will need to pick up your VIP tickets before 5 PM for wrestling. You will line up at 6 but the tickets have to be picked up before 5 PM at the Studio Audience Center.

If it makes the OP happy, I say go for it but do the leg work (as this post is) to try and refine one's itinerary to increase likelihood of success.
I've seen better (or worse depending on how you look at it)...someone went to the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland, then went to the one in MK....SAME day.

I've thought of something EVEN CRAZIER!!! I'd visit Tokyo Disneyland, go on one attraction, then fly to Anaheim, do one attraction, then fly to WDW and do one attraction (the same one at all 3, maybe pirates?)....yes, it would be more than 24 hours, but due to the time zone difference it could theoretically be done in the same calendar day. No, I don't have any plans to do this anytime soon...huge waste of airfare, lol

When Disney was doing its "One More Disney Day" promotion this past leap year there were people who went to both Disneyland and Magic Kingdom in the same day... crazy!

Yes it was very fun & yes it was very satisfying once I was done too. Funny you mention WDW & DL the same day, i'm doing just that in 2015 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of my first trip home.

There will be a trip report in the near future, hopefully before the week is out.

Any specific questions, by all means just ask.
