Tomorrowland Magic Kingdom

    This is our first time staying at a Disney resort. What’s the best way to utilize the 8-9 morning magic hours for Epcot and Magic Kingdom? We love rides! Traveling with a 21 year old.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Debbie! There are so many perks to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, and Extra Magic Hours are just one of them. I like to say that arriving early or staying late for Extra Magic Hours feels just like sneaking a few extra FastPass+ in your day.

    My best advice for morning Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom Park is head straight for the mountains and start with either Space Mountain or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. From there, use the My Disney Experience app to check attraction wait times and see what you'd like to do next but I would recommend a ride on Peter Pan's Flight, a classic, not-to-be-missed attraction that can have some longer wait times later in the day.

    Since you love attractions so much, you should make your way right to Soarin' Around the World during early Extra Magic Hours at Epcot. After that, if you feel the need for speed you can ride Test Track, or you can experience Frozen Ever After, which admittedly doesn't have the speed factor, but it certainly is popular and can attract a large crowd as the day goes on.

    See ya real soon, Debbie!
