KennythePirate’s Fastpass+ enabled Magic Kingdom TWO Day Touring Strategy for Characters and Rides
A great touring plan is important at the Magic Kingdom because the Magic Kingdom is HUGE and has a lot of attractions to do. I recommend that you plan to schedule your touring at least two days to take it all in and not feel stressed.
I recommend that you arrive 30-45 minutes before this park opening. Make your way all the way to the LEFT. You’ll see a bunch of people at the rope, but they don’t realize that the little rope on the side opens too. You’ll be able to walk right up.
This plan was designed to be able to ride every ride and meet every character and allow time to see the parades, shows and fireworks in two days without much backtracking or rushing around. If the park closes at 11:00 PM or later, you won’t have any problem riding most rides after 9:00 PM with little or no waits. The four attractions for which you’ll find a wait all day will be Meet Anna and Elsa, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan’s Flight and Space Mountain, so we’ll use FASTPASS+ for those.
What should I do about Anna and Elsa?
Option ONE – USE Fastpass+. I highly recommend that you find a FP+ for these ladies! Find a time, any time, and then insert the meet into this schedule as it fits your day. If you have difficulty locating a FP+ during your trip, you may want to try this trick on How to Get Difficult to Find Fastpasses
Option TWO – WAIT! If you choose to be among the people pulling hamstrings running the 1/4 mile from the Train Station to the Castle Rope, you better stay the LEFT at the rope. They are now forcing EVERYONE to turn left around the Prince Charming Carousel. People are waiting 2 or 3 hours to meet these ladies. The rope drop procedure can take 7-10 minutes to get to the Castle.
Option THREE – Go straight there at park opening or right before closing. If you are among the first to enter, you’ll get a short wait time. If you are willing to wait until the last 30 minutes of the day, you can end your day with a meet with these Princesses
Shouldn’t I run to Space Mountain first?
Nope, if you want to see the characters, especially the princesses, you’ll need to take on Fairytale Hall one day and meet Merida first the other day. You’ll see that the plan has been proven with times beside each item.
Shouldn’t I run to Peter Pan’s Flight first?
Peter Pan’s Flight is a very short, it’s a 3 minute long, ride in the dark. For some reason people are willing to wait in line 1 to 2 hours just to experience this attraction. If you are planning to meet the Princesses at Fairytale Hall, you’ll only find a short wait afterward on the slowest of days. I recommend that you schedule a Fastpass+, so you won’t have to wait in line or run to get there.
