Eight theme parks ten nights

A group of friends and I plan to visit all four Disney parks, both Universal parks, Seaworld and BGT. We are staying at a universal onsite hotel for two nights and at disney Cornado springs Resort for the remaining of the trip. Are we doing too much with a 10 night stay without rushing too much? We could choose to go anytime in january but we have to be back before the 25th because we start school that week. We really want to avoid crowds and know that Disneys Marathon weekend is january six through the ninth and MLK day falls on the 17th. What 11 days in january would be the best to visit? Any recommendations on what days to visit a certain park? Thanks will gladly appreciate any help!

let's see here... Busch Gardens, Seaworld, and Universal shouldn't be crowded on the days of the Disney marathon so that actually might be a good time and you could do the disney parks before or after.

Extra magic hours arn't available yet for january so you'll have to wait for specific days for each park.

I'm going to try and do all those parks in 10 days in July! As long as you pace yourself and prioritize what you really want to do, I'm sure you'll have a great time. January is supposed to be the best time to go for light crowds.
