Parking lot opens 2 hours before the park’s official opening. You then walk to the TTC and catch a monorail or a ferry to the entrance. All Disney resort lodging guests are let off directly at the park’s entrance.
Arrive 45-60 minutes prior to park opening, known as 'rope drop', the act of getting to Magic Kingdom before it begins operating for the day. Tour Main Street, take photos and get in line for Fantasyland rope drop.
The first half of our Magic Kingdom touring plan includes rides in Fantasyland, Adventureland, Frontierland, and Liberty Square.
Temperatures are at their highest in the afternoons, which is why we save the shows in Liberty Square, Tomorrowland, and Fantasyland for the afternoons, to enjoy the air conditioning!
Disney Enchantment is the new nighttime show being held at Magic Kingdom. It includes Disney music, breathtaking light shows, and stunning fireworks.
Between sit-down restaurants and quick-service walk-up counters, the choices are endless. One of our best tips for visiting Disney World on a budget, however, is to snack your way around the park, saving money and time!
This 1-day Magic Kingdom Itinerary was the perfect combination of rides, attractions, and shows. We felt like we did it all!
