    Keri from ME Asked

    Can you give me an approx distance or time via walking or the train from the front of the park entrance near Main St USA to the Frontierland section of the park? We have our first Fastpass at 10:35 AM and want to make sure we plan enough time to get there

    Hey Keri-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love trying to figure out how long it will take to get from Point A to Point B anywhere in the Walt Disney World Resort. The variables are numerous and include, party size, age, weather, crowd levels and whether a parade or stage show is in your path.

    When we traveled with our children and needed a stroller we were able to travel within 15-20 minutes between any locations in the parks at any crowd level. Now that my kids walk, and walk quickly, we can usually make any distance within 10-15 minutes.

    When you enter Magic Kingdom Park you will pass under the Walt Disney World Railroad and into Town Square at the beginning of Main Street, U.S.A. Here the sounds of celebration and the delicious smells from the Main Street Confectionary may slow you down. I would take some time to enjoy these moments including the names on the windows of the building lining the street. These are the Imagineers who helped create the “Most Magical Place on Earth.”  Cinderella Castle draws you down Main Street, U.S.A. to the hub (central location to travel to the different lands). You may reach Frontierland by heading through Liberty Square or through Adventureland. Each access has a special feel. If you need to be at the far end of Frontierland near Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad then I would allow 15-20 minutes of travel time. You really don’t want to miss the beautiful building designs and landscape.

    However, there is a faster, less stressful way. The Walt Disney World Railroad makes three stops around the Magic Kingdom Park. If you get on the train in the Town Square, Main Street, U.S.A. station then it should take you less than 8 minutes to reach the Frontierland Station. This is my preference if you are short on time. A 10:35 a.m. FastPass+ reservation should be easy to make with either route.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
