    Me & 10yr old son will be in FL 5/30-6/6, but only 1 day at MK, will be staying at local hotel w/free shuttle to WDW. Could someone assist w/itinerary to make one of those days a magical day 4 us? We love rides. and cars... anything fast!!! Thank you,


    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How to do the Magic Kingdom Park in one day? This is what I do with my sons. 

    I just checked the online crowd calendar at and found the Magic Kingdom Park will be least busy on Tuesday or Wednesday. Once you choose your day contact 407-WDISNEY to purchase your 1-day tickets. Next create a My Disney Experience account online and link your tickets. All these steps are important to be able to schedule your three FastPass+ reservations 30 days in advance of your visit. FastPass+ reservations give you a specific attraction return time allowing you to skip the lines. What a time saver! Your FastPass+ selections should include Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attractions. In addition to these attractions, you should also experience The Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, the Barnstormer, Tomorrowland Speedway and Astro Orbiter. Among many wonderful attractions these are “must-dos”. If you can do more, go for it! I also suggest a delicious flatbread pizza from Pinocchio Village Haus and grabbing a Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar for a refreshing snack. If you are around at night the fireworks are worth every moment.

    Outside of the Magic Kingdom Park is where your need for speed can be satisfied. The Richard Petty Driving Experience is exhilarating! I did the ride along program last December and there is nothing like suiting up in a NASCAR outfit and racing around the Walt Disney World Speedway at 102 mph. We took off like a rocket!

    I hope this gives you a good start to an amazing day!

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
