A Disney World 1 day ticket is best used here.  It’s the park with the most attractions and the most to do- but it’s also the busiest. 

This is why we need to follow some important strategies for the park.

Park Summary:

Magic Kingdom is divided into 6 themed lands:  Main Street U.S.A.,  TomorrowlandFantasylandLiberty SquareFrontierland,  and Adventureland.  Each land has attractions,  shows and dining based on those themes.   

Pay close attention to all the small details that go into the decorations, because they really are something to be appreciated.


Fastpasses to reserve (remember, with your Disney World ticket this is free)-  Haunted Mansion 11-12Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train 1-2Space Mountain 2-3,  

Dining Reservations: Magic Kingdom doesn’t have any amazing options.  If you have time in the late afternoon, you could exit the park and ride the monorail to a resort to eat at one of their restaurants.  Ohana’s at the Polynesian is amazing.

Day Plan: Get there EARLY. It takes about 30 min after you park to get to the gates because it’s far away.  Being here early is crucial.  At opening, go to the left back to Frontierland and ride Thunder Mountain then Splash Mountain (back left will be mostly dry) if not everyone is riding the coasters, have them go to Peter Pan’s Flight instead, then meet up in Adventureland.  Then move to Adventureland and ride Pirates of the Caribbean and Jungle Cruise.  Move to Liberty Square to use the Haunted Mansion fastpass, then see the Hall of Presidents.  Then make your way through the rest of the park, using your fastpasses then immediately get new ones and use them for what you’re about to ride. 

Happily Ever After will be very busy, and it’s easier to find a spot (and was designed to be viewed from) between Casey’s Corner and the Ice Cream Shop at the end of Main Street.  Be there about 30 minutes prior to the show.
