Jennifer is one of our Corporate Travel Consultants, and although she specializes in coordinating air, hotel and car rental arrangements for business travelers, she’s a huge fan of Walt Disney World and visits every year. Here are a few of Jennifer’s tips for navigating Magic Kingdom. Thanks, Jen!
Attend the opening ceremony
At least one morning, get up early and head to Magic Kingdom for the opening ceremony. It’s best to get there at least 30 minutes prior to park opening. If you are there early enough, your family can be chosen to help Mickey open the park! This is a great way to start a magical day!
Beat the crowd
When you first arrive at Magic Kingdom, go right for the train station. Go up to the platform and look down Main Street. It is usually very crowded as soon as the park opens, but makes for great pictures of Main Street and Cinderella’s Castle. After a few pictures, get on the train and head to Frontierland. By doing this, you’ll beat the crowd to this part of the park, and can usually get on Big Thunder Mountain with little to no wait. After that, head to either Liberty Square area or Adventureland. You can usually get to the rides and attractions in these areas before the crowds do.
Where to watch the fireworks and parade
A great place to catch the parades and fireworks in Magic Kingdom is in the Liberty Square area. The crowd is not as big, and you don’t have to stake out your spot as early here as you would along Main Street. She’s also watched the fireworks in the Fantasyland area and says it was a pretty good view as well.
