As Walt Disney World’s most popular destination, the park can be overwhelming and become quite crowded, even during the low season. We'll help you experience all of the magic without getting caught up in crowds and lines.
Magic Kingdom is Disney's most popular park all year round, so it can be tough to figure out when is the best time to go. Luckily, that is what TouringPlans does, and we do it well!
We monitor wait times at Magic Kingdom every day of the year. Check the Crowd Calendar to see what wait times will be like on the day of your visit. Crowd Levels vary a lot depending on when you choose to go. We update our wait time forecasts regularly, too, so make sure you track dates to be notified when crowd levels change.See the full Crowd Calendar

Throughout the year, Magic Kingdom hosts many Special Events that can be fun, plus some that need to be avoided if you don’t like crowded theme parks. After you choose which week to visit, you still need to know what’s going on at the park to make sure you’re ready for the magic.
Fall at Magic Kingdom is 'party' season. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a spooktacular evening event that requires a separate ticket in early fall. Once November arrives the theme switches to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Similar party – different decorations – just as fun!
Magic Kingdom has more attractions per square foot than the other parks, which means more choices. It also means that you can beat the crowds and save yourself a lot of time standing in line – if you plan it right.
At TouringPlans we use data and math to make your vacation better.
See which Magic Kingdom attractions are best for your family. We’ve collected over 1,600,000 guest surveys from every ride, show, and attraction in Walt Disney World. Results are organized by age group, so you can find the best things to do for your family.
See which attractions benefit most from Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane. These extra-cost programs have lots of rules. And Disney won't tell you how to get the most for your money. We will.
Get Shorter Lines by Arriving Early. The Magic Kingdom park-opening process is known as “Rope Drop.” With our advice, you’ll be through the gates and done with your first ride before most people are even in the park.
Save up to 4 hours a day, using our researched and tested plans, or create and customize your own.View our Touring Plans
