The Magic Kingdom is the most magical place in the world and a place that children and adults alike can enjoy.

Whether you're a Disney travel beginner or veteran, we've prepared this guide for you to make the most of your time at Magic Kingdom.

From quick walks to fast food, this complete Magic Kingdom guide is sure to make your Disney dreams come true.

What do I need to know before visiting Magic Kingdom?

There are a few things you need to know before entering the Magic Kingdom, these are our top tips:

Monorail Magic Kingdom
Monorail Magic Kingdom

Definitely, buy your tickets before leaving.

This will save you the lines when you arrive at the park and will also allow you to reserve your Disney Park Pass before you go.

You can buy your tickets directly on the Disney website or through authorized agencies and with discount and installments (contact us).

The Lightning Lane is not always worth it.

Bring a poncho.

give preference to buy online at amazon discount or at supermarkets such as walmart, before you arrive, definitely be prepared and bring one.

Rain at Magic Kingdom
Rain at Magic Kingdom

While the heat is enormous in Florida, the rain can be just as crazy.

Rains usually only last for a short time, but it's much better to have a raincoat than to be caught off guard and have to walk around in soggy clothes all day.

If you want to save money, avoid eating in the park, we recommend that you bring snacks in your backpack.

Another element that can make you spend a lot of money is buying water or soda around the park, so we recommend taking a thermal cup and fill in the water fountains around the park.

Magic Kingdom's best stores

If you're looking to buy Disney merchandise, Magic Kingdom is definitely the place to do it!

The best place for Disney shopping at this park is the Emporium on Main Street USA.

This store is home to everything Disney – from clothing to cuddly toys, homewares, stationery and more.

emporium-main-street-magic-kingdom
Emporium Store on Main Street at Magic Kingdom

If you're looking for something a little more festive, be sure to check out the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square for Christmas decorations. Christmas with Disney's most magical themes.

Other Magic Kingdom-exclusive store recommendations include Big Top Souvenirs at Fantasyland and Merchant of Venus at Tomorrowland.

Best places to eat at Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom has many (many) different options for eating, from quick snacks to full meals.

There is certainly something for everyone's taste.

we have some restaurants that we love there.

One of our favorites at the park is Mickey's Starlight Cafe located in Tomorrowland.

There's a Burger medium and you can listen to the Cosmic Ray show while eating.

Cosmic Ray Starlight Cafe - Magic Kingdom
Cosmic Ray Starlight Cafe – Magic Kingdom

Another place we love for a quick bite is the Columbia Harbor House!

It's right next to the Haunted Mansion on Liberty Square and if you like seafood, this is your restaurant! And the price is very attractive too.

For a slightly “better” meal, the Restaurant Be Our Guest is incredibly themed and somewhere every fan of Beauty and the Beast can enjoy.

If you're looking for a quick bite, Casey's Corner serves delicious hot dogs, classic American fries and other snacks that are delicious.

Magic Kingdom at Night

Just because the sun has set doesn't mean the fun stops at Magic Kingdom.

Personally, we love to walk in the Splash, Thunder Mountain and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in the dark.

In addition to giving a different feeling of attraction, at certain times you can have a beautiful view of a large part of the park.

And that's one of the most amazing things about Disney, the view from the parks is completely different day and night!

However, if you don't want to do any more attractions when it gets dark, be sure to watch the fireworks display. Happily Ever After.

Cinderella's castle is even more magical with all the light cast on it and the fireworks are sure to take your breath away.

We've talked a few times here on the blog and on our social networks, but this photo show, for us, is the best Disney show ever.

Magic Kingdom's top attractions

Okay, maybe you're wondering if we're not moving too fast.

Rest assured, further down in this post we will give an explanation of ALL the park attractions.

In this small section we will only list those that we consider the most must-see in the park.

Virtually all Magic Kingdom attractions are classics and some are in the must-ride category.

There are many (very many) attractions in this park.

If you're looking for the absolute best and don't want to ride them all (Note: It's impossible to do them all in just 1 day), this is the list.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train - Magic Kingdom Attraction

Splash mountain
Big thunder mountain
Haunted Mansion
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
Pirates of the Caribbean
Peter Pan's Flight

Magic Kingdom Lands and Attractions

In this session, we will go into each of the Magic Kingdom lands and talk about each of its attractions.

The “navigation” through the park is relatively simple as it is very easy to locate, however, due to the large volume of attractions it is possible that you will be walking around in circles to get everything done.

If you want to make the most of your time, be sure to hire us to set up a custom script for your trip!

However, here's another tip!

As soon as you enter the park, get your MAP!

And of course, don't forget to confirm the minimum height of all attractions before including in your itinerary clicking here.

Main Street USA

All trips to the Magic Kingdom start at Main Street USA.

In addition to the countless shops filled with every Disney souvenir imaginable, there are also two rides here that can often be overlooked.

Main street vehicles don't work all day and sometimes on super busy days they don't work.

main-street-usa-magic-kingdom
Main Street USA – Magic Kingdom

This tour consists of a quick drive down Main Street in a vintage-style open-air vehicle.

You can pick up the vehicle at both ends of Main Street and they usually stop working around 10am/11am.

The Walt Disney World Railroad is a great way to quickly see the park.

The railroad has three stops – Main Street USA, Frontierland and Fantasyland.

It surrounds the park and offers great views of different attractions around the parks. The entire loop takes about 20 minutes.

Walt Disney World Railroad - Magic Kingdom Attraction
Walt Disney World Railroad – Magic Kingdom Ride

Unfortunately, at the moment the WDW Railroad is closed due to the works of the new TRON attraction, scheduled for 2022.

Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland is located on the east side of the Magic Kingdom and is the first land you will find if you turn right when you reach the castle.

nova-tomorrowland-magic-kingdom
Tomorrowland's New Entry to the Magic Kingdom

This is my favorite area of the entire park and if you haven't seen it yet, take the time to soak up every detail.

TIP

As soon as you enter Tomorrowland, look to your right behind a large rock and you will see the famous Purple Wall, one of the Disney World's most famous walls.

Magic Kingdom Purple Wall

This Purple Wall became famous among bloggers for being a beautiful stop with good natural lighting for photos (especially late afternoon).

Secure a photo there!

Let's go to the attractions of this land.

Astro Orbiter

This “aerial carousel” is located on top of The Lunching Pad and People Mover. You will have good views of the park from this attraction.

Astro Orbiter - Magic Kingdom Attractions
Astro Orbiter – Magic Kingdom Attractions

The attraction itself is no different or much better than the magic carpets of Aladdin or Dumbo the Flying Elephant that we will talk about later in this post.

If there is a long wait, don't feel bad about missing this attraction.

Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin

This is one of the classic Magic Kingdom rides and one of our favorites in Tomorrowland.

It's a ride in the dark where you fight Buzz against Emperor Evil Zurg, firing his laser at targets during the ride.

It's definitely one of the best rides at Magic Kingdom and great fun for the whole family.

buzz-lightyear-space-ranger-spin
Buzz Lightyear Ranger Spin

Monsters Inc Laugh Floor

This is an interactive program where audience members become part of the experience.

Monsters Inc's monsters put on a stand-up show that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Monster Inc Laugh Floor

A special attention here, it is necessary to know how to speak English otherwise you will not understand anything.

Space mountain

This indoor dark coaster is the original version of the Hyper Space Mountain rides that you can find at Disneyland California and Disneyland Paris.

Space mountain
Space mountain

It is a staple of all Magic Kingdom experiences and one of the most famous and particularly my favorite rides in this park!

We suggest heading straight here as soon as the park opens.

Tomorrowland speedway

The Tomorrowland speedway it's probably more fun for children than for adults but still worth it!

Tomorrowland Speedway - Magic Kingdom Attraction
Tomorrowland Speedway – Magic Kingdom Ride

It's a simple ride like an arcade on a course where you can't leave the track.

Wait times can be quite long for this tour, so only when the queue is over as it's not worth waiting too long.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover

This is a classic tour and great for taking a break. It's a slow, elevated ride through Tomorrowland on four-person open-air carts.

She goes through some interesting moments behind the scenes, including a peak inside Space Mountain.

Peoplemover - Magic Kingdom Attraction
Peoplemover – Magic Kingdom Attraction

The People Mover queue is a great way to gauge how busy the park is.

If the queue is longer than 10 minutes, the park is reasonably crowded. For more than 20 minutes, it's SUPER full!

Generally, the queue is closer to 5 minutes.

We also recommend this attraction for when you want to take a break!

Carousel of progress

This is the most classic Disney ride in all of Tomorrowland and something everyone needs to experience at some point.

This attraction is a rotating theater that takes you through four scenes about technological progress in a standard American family.

Carousel of Progress - Magic Kingdom Attraction at WDW
Carousel of Progress – Magic Kingdom Attraction at WDW

The show lasts about 20 minutes and starts in the 1900s and ends in the present day.

It's not the best ride, but it has a huge nostalgia factor and it's where you'll find the classic Disney song 'Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow'.

The show starts every five minutes and usually never has a wait time above that as many people don't even realize it's there.

Fantasyland

Fantasyland is located on the north side of the park and most of its rides are open during the morning extra magic hours.

The Barnstormer

This is a small roller coaster for kids located in the Storybook Circus area of Fantasyland, although adults can ride it too.

The Barnstormer: Magic Kingdom Attractions
The Barnstormer: Magic Kingdom Attractions

It's nothing special and it's been specially designed so that smaller kids can still experience the thrill of a roller coaster thanks to its lower height requirement.

The The Barnstormer It's really fun and cute with its Goofy theme!

Dumbo the Flying Elephant

An absolute Disney classic, this ride is always popular.

Guests fly in their Flying Dumbos, which rotate around a central point and move up and down.

Dumbo the Flying Elephant - Magic Kingdom Attraction
Dumbo the Flying Elephant – Magic Kingdom Attraction

You can control the height of Dumbo using a joystick.

So if you don't like to move, you can choose to stay perfectly level during your flight.

Enchanted Tales With Belle

This is not an attraction or show as such, but it is different from others. characters that are found around the park.

Instead of the traditional meeting and greeting with autographs and photos, here you can re-enact scenes from Beauty and the Beast with Beauty.

That's right, in this attraction you and your children will have the opportunity to meet Belle!

And I take the opportunity to say, there are 2 animatronics that will impress you with their perfection, the closet and the Lumiere!

It's a Small World

This indoor boat tour is based on Walt Disney's classic 1964 New York World Fair.

It lasts about 15 minutes and contains over 300 animatronics.

All animatronics represent a different country and wear the traditional clothes of that country.

Its a Small World - Magic Kingdom Attraction
Its a Small World – Magic Kingdom Attraction

Of course they all sing too"It's a small world” in your own language. It's a classic Disney ride and almost a right park pass.

Mad tea party

This is a revolving tour where you stand next to your cup of tea on a large platform.

The platform itself rotates and you control the rotation of your own teacup.

Mad Tea Party - Magic Kingdom Ride
Mad Tea Party – Magic Kingdom Ride

Another important detail, we do not recommend that you walk here right after a meal.ds

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is a ride in the dark that takes you into the world of the Hundred Acre Wood.

The story is a bit bizarre and doesn't make a lot of sense, but overall it's a fun ride for kids.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh - Magic Kingdom Attraction
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh – Magic Kingdom Attraction

It's not worth waiting too long for this attraction if you don't have kids who like it a lot, however your queue is a lot of fun!

Mickey's PhilharMagic

This is a ride which is actually a 3D movie with music from classic Disney movies set in a unique story with Donald and Mickey.

The wait is never longer than the show, making it worth your while to go here!

Mickeys PhilharMagic - Magic Kingdom
Mickeys PhilharMagic – Magic Kingdom

It's a great place to hang out or just get out of the sun for a while plus it's a super cute attraction that we love!

Peter Pan's Flight

This is undoubtedly one of the attractions most famous in the Magic Kingdom, that is, expect long lines here!

It's a dark ride where you "fly" on a ship with fairy dust and see various scenes of Peter Pan from above.

peter-pans-flight-magic-kingdom
Peter Pan's Flight – Magic Kingdom Attractions

It's a good trip, but it doesn't necessarily deserve the queues it gets. Don't wait more than half an hour for this attraction if you don't have children in your group.

A detail, the line of this attraction has many interactive things to distract you, it's very cute to see.

Prince Charming's Regal Carousel

This is literally just a standard carousel, but it was one of Walt Disney's favorite rides.

Prince Charming's Regal Carousel
Prince Charming's Regal Carousel

You can easily assemble it at any time of the day without much waiting time.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

This is probably the smoothest roller coaster you've ever seen, but not in a bad way!

The oscillating movement of the carriage means that it slides at every turn.

It has some lure elements in the dark and some glowing animatronics from the seven dwarfs.

Carlos and Nath on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Carlos and Nath on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

All of this facilitates the most popular ride in the park.

At any time of day, you can be sure this will be the longest line in the park.

If you want to walk around here, go straight as soon as the park opens!

Under The Sea – Voyage of the Little Mermaid

This is a classic Disney dark ride, similar to Winnie the Pooh, but with a lot less movement.

In reality he is much closer in style to the Nemo's attraction at Epcot.

Under The Sea - Magic Kingdom Children's Attraction
Under The Sea – Magic Kingdom Children's Attraction

At Under the Sea You ride a shell through the well-known story of Little Mermaid, and get a chance to see all the main characters.

It is very easy to walk this attraction by taking the normal line.

Liberty square

This is a small area situated between Frontierland and Fantasyland, but it is not really considered a landem itself.

The Hall of Presidents

This is a 25-minute show with animatronic figures that explain the history of the American president.

The Hall of Presidents - Magic Kingdom Attraction
The Hall of Presidents – Magic Kingdom Attraction

Each president is represented as an animatronic and has his own part in the show.

This is a good option to get out of the sun for a while or to kill some time.

Haunted Mansion

This is one of Disney's best rides in the dark and is suitable for the whole family.

Enter your Doom Buggy and explore the haunted house from disney, but don't forget not to be the thousandth happy haunting that inhabits!

Haunted Mansion - Disney's Haunted Mansion
Haunted Mansion - Disney's Haunted Mansion

The Haunted Mansion is a very popular tour, so the line can get quite long.

Wait for the time to decrease to ride this attraction, we suggest waiting about 30 minutes maximum.

Frontierland

Frontierland is on the west side of the park, between Liberty Square and Adventureland.

Wait times are often short in this area early in the day as visitors prefer to ride the park's newer attractions.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Big Thunder Mountain is an outdoor roller coaster themed around a mine journey in the American Southwest.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

The theme of this attraction is brilliant and therefore it is one of the most popular attractions in the park.

The lines are never terrible for this tour, but it's popular so don't expect them to be short!

Country Bear Jamboree

This is an indoor animatronic show, much like the Enchanted Tiki Room.

It's made up of bears singing country music to the audience and it's a different attraction.

Country Bear Jamboree
Country Bear Jamboree

Some people love it and some people hate it, but it's a great place to get away from the heat.

We love all of Disney's classic attractions primarily for their history, so if you do too, you'll probably enjoy the Country Bear Jamboree too.

Splash mountain

Definitely one of our favorite attractions, so much so that it was the first attraction we walked past. we get engaged at Disney.

This is a combination of a walk in the dark and a classic log chute with a drop.

Splash-Mountain-Magic-Kingdom
Splash Mountain – Magic Kingdom Ride

It is based on the movie Song of the South and features the classic song Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah.

The Splash mountain it has it all – a catchy song, a great story, an interesting queue and of course a great drop to finish.

Queues for this tour are highly dependent on the weather – you can guarantee that the hotter it is, the longer the wait time.

Tom Sawyer Island

The Tom Sawyer Island it is only accessible from the park by ferry and is designed to be a place for children to explore.

Tom Sawyer Island at Magic Kingdom
Tom Sawyer Island at Magic Kingdom

It has caves, bridges and is basically a huge play area for kids.

Adventureland

Adventureland is located at the left end of the park, parallel to Frontierland.

Morning wait times tend to be short here, so it's a great place to start your day.

Jungle Cruise

This is an open-air boat tour that takes you through jungle scenes, with a captain with a wild sense of humor.

It's definitely a must-visit, especially if you're a fan of infamous jokes.

Jungle Cruise - Magic Kingdom Attraction
Jungle Cruise – Magic Kingdom Ride

The queue can get very long so please wait your time here as we do not recommend waiting longer than 30 minutes for this trip.

At Christmas, this tour transforms into the Jingle Cruise and features some bonus details in the Christmas mood.

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

This ride is virtually identical to Dumbo, aside from its theme.

We suggest choosing just one of the three aerial carousel rides in the park (this one, Dumbo or Astro Orbiter) as there is not much distinction between them.

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin - Magic Kingdom Attraction
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin – Magic Kingdom Attraction

Obviously, if you're going with young children, do them all!

Pirates of the Caribbean

This is another classic Disney World ride.

It's fun, exciting and perfect for any Pirates of the Caribbean fan.

It's a dark boat ride that takes you through different pirate scenes.

pirates-of-the-caribbean-magic-kingdom-disney-world
Pirates of the Caribbean Attraction at Magic Kingdom

There are a few small drops during the ride, but nothing that really gets you wet.

Lines can get long for this attraction.

Swiss Family Treehouse

This is a step-by-step attraction through a treehouse based on the 1960 film Swiss Family Robinson.

It's cool if you're familiar with the movie, but if you're not just a standard tree house.

Swiss Family Treehouse - Magic Kingdom
Swiss Family Treehouse – Magic Kingdom

We have never seen this attraction with a queue.

If you want to try it, walk around whenever you want. Definitely don't do it if there's a wait time!

Enchanted Tiki Room

This was the first Disney attraction to feature audio animatronics, as well as another classic Disney ride.

the show of Enchated Tiki Room lasts about 15 minutes and features animatronic birds singing. As with the other shows, it's a great place to hang out or get out of the heat.

Enchated Tiki Room at Magic Kingdom
Enchated Tiki Room at Magic Kingdom

Overall it's an OK attraction! And if you're on a tight schedule at the park, we recommend you skip it.

Park History

The Magic Kingdom was the first theme park to open in Walt Disney World on October 1, 1971.

Today it is the most popular theme park in the world.

Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom in 1990
Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom in 1990

It often draws large crowds and has a maximum capacity of 100,000, which is often reached on major national holidays.

The park's icon is Cinderella's Castle, with its blue and gold tower, which rises 57 meters above the park's 142 acres (more than 570,000 m²).

Despite its appearance, there is not a single brick in the castle, with the entire structure being made of fiberglass.

The Magic Kingdom's layout and attractions are based on Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California.

Although Walt Disney was heavily involved in the planning of Walt Disney World, the Magic Kingdom was not opened until after his death.

Walt Disney With Magic Kingdom Map
Walt Disney With Magic Kingdom Map

At the opening, there were 23 attractions at The Magic Kingdom, several of which are still open today.

As the biggest theme park in the world, Magic Kingdom has a lot of history and some interesting stats, for example did you know that the Prince Charming Regal Carousel was built in 1917?

Early Theme Park Entry – Magic Kingdom

Why not put some extra park hours into your Magic Kingdom Plan?

Wouldn't it be even better if there were fewer visitors along with you?

Walt Disney World Resort Guests hotels and resorts select non-Disney members can enjoy extra time at the Magic Kingdom EVERY day!

Disney's Art of Animation - Disney Hotel
Disney's Art of Animation – Disney Hotel

This was a very recent change made to the benefits hotels offer.

In the past, there were extra magic hours which were selected hours a few random days in each park.

But now you can enjoy half an hour longer when all parks open and more importantly, every day.

We believe this change was positive as it disperses visitors who are staying in hotels and you gain a significant advantage to ride on the park's most popular attractions!

Encounter with Personanges in the Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom is home to many of Disney's classic characters. At Magic Kingdom, you'll likely find:

– Mickey
– Minnie
– Goofy
– Donald
– Daisy
– Aladdin
– Stitch
- Small bell
– Ariel
Cinderella and other princesses

Among others. Character Meet & Greet may vary throughout the year, and rare characters appear at Halloween and Christmas parties.

We have a guide of both parties here on the blog:

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - A Halloween party in the Magic Kingdom
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas PartyChristmas party in the Magic Kingdom

Information about which characters are meeting is available on the My Disney Experience app.

Remember, if you don't want to spend time waiting for characters, there are other ways to see many of your favorites, including watching parades.

Magic Kingdom Quick Service Restaurants

Few people know, but the Gaston's Tavern it is an excellent place to eat.

This restaurant was created to look like the tavern from “Beauty and the Beast” for snacks and drinks.

The menu here is quite varied and offers roast pork shank, hot cinnamon roll, chocolate croissant, cup of mixed fruit, sliced apples with caramel sauce, cup of mixed vegetables with sauce and hummus and fries.

In addition, you can also order the famous signature drink of the restaurant which is LeFou's Brew, a concoction of frozen apple juice with a touch of toasted marshmallow, topped with natural passion fruit foam and mango in a souvenir glass.

This is another excellent Magic Kingdom option for a quick bite.

The specialty here is Italian-American food.

More specifically flatbreads which are a lot like pizzas.

The food is delicious and the restaurant is very large and air conditioned.

However, as it has a low price and offers foods such as bread and pasta, this makes it one of the busiest Quicks Services restaurants in the park!

No wonder, it's where you can have a meal with Winne the Pooh and his friends.

If you're traveling with kids who like these characters, this Main Street USA breakfast, lunch or dinner buffet needs to be on your bucket list!

Magic Kingdom Map

As we said before, the Magic Kingdom, despite being very large, is very easy to get around and locate because its brilliant division into lands makes it super easy to know where you are!

The Lands are super striking, unlike the Busch gardens and SeaWorld where sometimes we can get lost even though we are physically smaller parks.

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets when they arrive in Orlando or even on park day.

We absolutely do not recommend that you do this for a number of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MOSTLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!

Access our ticket website to buy your tickets or request a free consultation to find out exactly which tickets are the best to buy.

  1. Hi Carlos!
    First, what an amazing post, it was without a doubt the most complete post I've ever found about Magic Kingdom among all I've researched.
    I would like to know if there is any day next week recommending we go to the Magic Kingdom to be less crowded!

    • Hi Rachel! How are you? Thanks for your comment!
      It has always been widely publicized that weekdays are slightly more empty than weekends at Disney parks, especially on Sundays.
      That used to be very true. But the thing is, it really depends on when you go.
      What we recommend is that you view a specific capacity calendar for your travel dates.
      If you need help, just log in contact with us that we can help you set up your calendar!

      Hugs and have a great trip!
