    Andres from AL Asked

    I am visiting Magic Kingdom on January 3 or 4, 2018 with my husband and our 3 kids, ages 17, 6, and 2. The trip is tailored to my 6 year old daughter who will be turning 7. Any advice on conquering as many activities/rides as possible during that one day?

    Hello Andres!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Your dream Disney vacation is just a couple of days away, I am sure you must be very excited! I have a 6 year-old-daughter who absolutely adores Magic Kingdom Park! She is a big fan of the Disney Princesses and never misses the chance to enjoy her favorite attractions: Space Mountain and Splash Mountain.

    To make the most of your day at this iconic park, and considering that the first week of January is a busy one, I highly recommend the following:

    - See all attractions that Magic Kingdom Park has to offer and plan according to your little one’s preferences.

    - Make your initial FastPass+ selections and once you have used the third selection check the My Disney Experience mobile app or in-park FastPass+ kiosks to make a fourth selection. Use this fourth FastPass+ and start the process again. My favorite time for selections is in the afternoon when the parks are busier.

    - Arrive early! It might be a little chilly in the morning but believe me, it will be worth to “rope drop”! Experience attractions for which you have no FastPass+ selections for, and keep checking the My Disney Experience mobile app for attraction wait times.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Andres! I hope this helps you while planning and that you have a wonderful visit!

    Best magical wishes,
