Question Magic Kingdom/EPCOT/Animal Kingdom/Hollywood Studios

Hi all,
Me (33) and DB (32) will be in Orlando 27th nov-1st Dec and from 8th dec-14th dec. In between we will go on a cruise.

We want to spend one day at Disney World. My DB loves the roller coasters.

Which of these 4 (title) do you advice we choose if roller coasters stands above all the other attractions?

We are also planning on buying a one day pass to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.

Hope to receive advise and suggestions from experienced one!!

Thank you...

Newest coaster is at Animal Kingdom,but other than the one, there are not many other "thrill" rides at AK.

Hollywood Studios has Rockin Roller Coaster and a couple other thrill types.

Epcot -nothing thrill wise really.

Magic Kingdom one coaster I would call "thrill" then several other moderate type of rides.

I always say if you can only spend one day at one specific park to do MK because of the Disney magic there.
Otherwise I guess I would choose Hollywood Studios second, and AK third. Epcot---not at all.

If a coaster is going to be the deciding factor in choosing a park I'd go with DHS. RnRC is probably the biggest thrill ride in WDW. There is also ToT (not a coaster but it provides a good drop) as well.

AK has Everest but that's it in the way of thrill rides (unless you count Dinosaur. I don't.) and MK has SM and BTMR, neither of which can be compared with RnRC or Everest.

You're going to have much more luck with US as far as coasters go. Because of that, I'd probably opt to have that day focused on coasters and the Disney day focused on soaking up the atmosphere and classic attractions at MK. If you're visiting Disney for thrill, you're going to be disappointed.

Okey, thank you!
Getting nearer to our decision. My brother went to MK with his family in october 2012 and yes, they've told me about the all the attraction there.
I do think that DB will enjoy his coasters in US.
Great advice!

I would go over to the theme park and strategies board for more responses. This is the resort board.
