  The Magic Kingdom Touring Guide

Explore Main Street U.S.A.
Even when the official opening time is 9:00am the Disney people will often let their guests through the turnstiles as early as 45 minutes to an hour before that. While much of the park will remain closed to the public until 9:00am, guests will have access to Main Street U.S.A.
Take advantage of this time using it for a leisurely stroll down Main Street. Here you will find a photo opportunity with Cinderella Castle in the background. You may want to stop in The Main Street Bake Shop for a quick snack or simply enjoy this 1900 turn-of-the-century reproduction of a Middle American small town as you make your way towards the central hub.

Position yourself at the central hub for the official opening, which is located in front of the castle. Once guests are allowed into the remainder of the park you can start the touring plan.

Dinner Option #1
If you want to take the opportunity to sit and relax at a full service restaurant consider this possibility

Grand Floridian Café

This restaurant is easily accessed by leaving the theme park and taking the motor launch located just outside the theme park entrance.

Dinner Option #2

Nobody does parades like Disney

Make sure that the Magic Kingdom will be open late and will offering an evening parade, during your stay (407) 824-4321.

If you have decided on viewing the evening parade you will need to keep an eye on the time.
Around an hour to an hour an half prior to the parade pick out your first choice for a viewing location and plant yourself there.

Prime locations include the central hub at Main Street, the upper platform of the Walt Disney Railroad Station at the Town Square end of Main Street. This is also an excellent spot to view the Fantasy in the Sky fireworks.

If you have decided not to view the evening parade and would prefer to continue enjoying the attractions consider the following.

If you have decided not to view the evening parade and would prefer to continue enjoying the attractions consider the following.

Try picking one of the lands and concentrating on the attractions offered there.
Here are some suggestions.

Early Evening Touring Plan


Jungle Cruise
Fast Pass Available
cast member skipper entertains guests with often funny or at least amusing patter. For an enhanced experience and one in which this attraction’s age will not be as apparent try it at night.

After you finish in Adventureland head to Frontierland.

There is a passageway located behind the The Magic Carpets of Aladdin attraction that will put you right into Frontierland next to Country Bear Jamboree.


Country Bear Jamboree

Liberty Square

The Hall of Presidents

Disney Tip: If you have elected to not view the evening parade just before and during the parade many of the headline attraction will see their shortest waits of the day. So go ahead and take in any you missed earlier or revisit any of your favorites.
