If I recall, someone brought that up once, the parking pass you get at one gate will work in all lots all day.

Exactly. Pay once, in-and-out privileges at all the parks.

And traffic shouldn't be a factor.
No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.

Since time is of the essence, it only makes sense to walk between parks if you are going to turn around and go back to your car at the other park later. You can obviously monorail between EC and MK, but you might want your car to get to AK and HS faster. Also, later in the day as you continue to hop, parking gets much easier and you will find close-in parking at all the lots.
How about traffic though? And does the parking fee cover all the parks ~ like if you park in one park's lot, do you just receive a pass that is good for the rest of the parks for the day?
Yes Amy you only pay at the first park you visit, the pass is dated and valid for the entire dated day. You would have to purchase a park hopper ticket for the day to visit more than one park though.

Ah yes, I figured the parking pass was good at all the lots, but I wasn't certain. That is a good point on the ticket ~ I'm guessing joeybTNU had already thought of that though. I hope he pops back on and lets us know what he ended up doing!

You could also reverse the order of MK, Epcot, DHS.
Man, I have to say I'm intrigued by this plan...I'll have to try it on our next trip!

I've done it before too, even though I had a pass just to get a taste for each park, but usually only could hit 3. Epcot usually being my stopping point because I just love the area. But ya expect to do one or maybe two rides each park. Travel time is going to eat up a lot of it. But I'm in no way saying don't :-) just expect travel to be a hug part of it.

Ha! Great suggestion horizons. Never ever occurred to me! I bet you have to pay at each park, but if you are gonna do it up, that seems like the best way

you only have to pay for parking the first time...after that you can park at any of the park lots at no extra cost
