10 Do's and Don'ts for Disney's Magic Kingdom

1 - Do – Research and Make FastPass+ Reservations

By doing even a bit of research about the park ahead of time, you will greatly enhance your experience at Magic Kingdom and the rest of Disney World. Check out the menus before you visit, so you don’t waste time traipsing across the park to find a quick-service location everyone will enjoy. Knowing which attractions you simply must-do will help you have a plan and give your day a sense of direction. Doing research before arriving at the park will help you avoid wasting time, and you’ll feel like you’re doing the things you want to do, and not missing out.

Making FastPass+ reservations is key to getting the most out of Magic Kingdom. There are so many attractions and rides to fit into one day at this park and having FastPass+ reservations really does help. Try to book your FastPasses for attractions that typically have long lines, like Peter Pan’s Flight, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, The Jungle Cruise or Space Mountain. It’s also important to take into consideration the attractions that are on your must do list. Try to avoid using it on attractions that have multiple showings, like Mickey’s Philarmagic, which is typically only a 10- minute wait, or the Mad Tea Party. Make choices that will either save you time waiting in lines, or ensure that you do something at the top of your must do list.
