Planning a Magicial Magic Kingdom Trip

If you want to listen, whilst you read these notes, just click the audio player below. Alternatively, you can find our podcast in all good podcast catching apps or searching on iTunes (click here iTunes link) or Stitcher Radio.

On this weeks podcast, Michelle is joined by the Dis Down Under Podcast - Kat and Lewis and together they chat through some top tips for visiting the Magic Kingdom. So read on and we will summarise below some key ideas.

1. Fastpasses
If you are an onsite guest you can book three fastpasses per day. These can be booked 60 days in advance and they can reduce your wait times in attraction lines considerably. Once in the park and the three fastpasses have been used, you can visit the WDW app and book further ones (one at a time) to enjoy.

Depending on your park strategy depends on how you use these. You could be an early morning person and want to use them first thing or perhaps you will leave them til later in the day. Whilst not all attractions have them, some fastpasses are more beneficial than others and we discuss some of the benefits on the show. 

2. Dining
Liberty Tree Tavern Can be a hearty meal
The Magic Kingdom has an array of eating options from snacks, quick service, character meals to table service. In our opinion some are better value than others but again alot is down to your viewpoint as a character meal is great if you want to get to meet and greet some hard to find characters but if you just want food on the go - the value may not be there for you.

3. Additional Costs
Desserts and Entertainment but at an extra cost
For an additional price you can have the benefit of assured view for the evenings fireworks. The Magic Kingdom offers two dessert parties and also a firework cruise. With prices per adult starting from $59 per adult they are not cheap but for a special occassion or for those on a quick trip (that might not have time to wait for a viewing spot) it may be of interest to them.

However, if you want to get in to the park ahead of the crowds to ride Seven Dwarves Mine Train, The Many Adventures  of Winnie Pooh and Peter Pans' Flight then the magic morning option could be for you as it also includes a breakfast - for the price of $65.

Whatever you do before going to the Magic Kingdom - do your research! We highlighly recommend buying a guide book - such as the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World and subscribing to Touring Plans as both of these options will give you a wealth of information to save you time and ultimately a lot of money! Find out more by searing for the book title of visiting how to buy the Unofficial Guide.
