First Solo Trip - Which Parks?

I'm taking my first solo trip to Disney in February. It's a short one, only three days, but I'm having trouble figuring out which parks to do. I know that I want to do MK on the first day and the second day I'm going to do Disney After Hours in the evening. I really love all the parks, but I'm not getting hoppers so I need to narrow it down to a park on my second day before going to DAH. What's a good second park for a solo traveler?

Hate animals? Do MK, Epcot, Hollywood Studios. Love animals do MK, Epcot, Animal Kingdom.


It's kind of fun to do the impossible.

A good second park for a solo traveler is Epcot. So much to see and do in World Showcase.

    Yup, that's why this solo did option 2-I love animals. I'll confuse you further by mentioning that if you love thrill rides (I don't), you might want to do Hollywood Studios. If I had more than 3 days, I'd do AK multiple times and still eliminate DHS.

    Have you been to Pandora or Toy Story Land and how do you feel about them?

    When I flirted with the idea of a short trip next year, it was specifically to experience the new lands/attractions at AK and DHS. If I had to skip a park, it was no contest: skip MK. It's a madhouse on the best days, and there's nothing there that I can't live without.

    I love Epcot as a hangout park, and no way could I go to WDW without eating something there.

    Any of the three! It really depends on what you want to do and how many times you have been. For me - because I have not yet been to HS since TSL opened - I'd hit HS. But - I do love AK - and I struggle skipping that park on a trip.

    Me - I can skip Epcot. WS is a shopping mall, IMO. FW needs love/makeover in terms of its look. Giant movies I have to STAND to watch are unappealing. I'm really looking forward to there being a couple more rides in EPCOT. And they don't have a FP for the characters I STILL haven't seen - Joy and Sadness - which just irks me. There's a freakin FP for Spaceship Earth - which used to be practically walk-on, but not those characters?

    BUT - if you have never been to EPCOT - I do still highly recommend the park!
