Two-Day Dumbo-or-Die Touring Plan

Parents' Plan-One Afternoon and One Full Day

These day-and-a-half plans work perfectly if you're arriving in Orlando late in the morning of your first vacation day, and can't wait to start touring. They also work great for families who want to sleep in one morning after spending a full day in the Magic Kingdom the day before. The attractions in these plans are the same as those found in the standard one-day plans for parents with small children, so these day-and-a-half itineraries also work as relaxed versions of those plans. Both plans employ FastPass+ and some version of a "wait 'em out" crowd strategy, where you'll take advantage of lower evening crowds to visit the more popular attractions. The plans include new Magic Kingdom attractions such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Enchanted Tales with Belle, and Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, plus classic attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean and Splash Mountain.

One-Day Not-A-Touring-Plan Plan for Parents with Small Children

Instead of a step-by-step list of attractions to visit, these "Not-A-Touring-Plan" plans are a loose collection of guidelines we use when telling folks how to tour the Magic Kingdom. Most of these plans (there are more for parents, and for the other parks) aren't more than a dozen sentences long. For example, one step in the plans is "Tour Liberty Square next." See those attractions in any order. Stop to get character autographs, to shop, or to rest. Continue the plan whenever you're ready. Skip attractions which do not interest your family. Use Fastpass+ if possible, especially at Peter Pan's Flight, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Buzz Lightyear. You'll have a solid strategy for beating most of the crowds, with the most flexible schedule possible.
