After using all the tools here, I got really good at which park to pick for which day.
Going on a short trip in november, how do i decide which park to pick for each day?

Mashy, with all the COVID-related changes, and short-notice expansions in operating hours on weekends, the case for being picky about which parks on which days doesn’t really hold anymore. Except for Hollywood Studios, Tues-Thurs are best, then Mon and Fri, and weekends are worse. HS is about equally rough every day, and because of that, co-author Josh at easyWDW.com suggests going to HS on Saturdays, as it will be little worse than your other HS choices, while going to another park that day will be worse than you other choices except Sunday. I think that’s brilliant.

That is useful information.
Part of me just wants to get Hollywood studios over with early on ?

I’m there a full Wed/ Thursday/ Friday. Skipping Ak this visit.

Yeah, since because of the need to reserve in advance, you lose a lot of flexibility. Among your days, Friday will likely be busier at the other parks, (though not as much as a weekend day would be) which suggests making that your HS day.
