We get this asked all the time: If we have one day in Disney, what should we do?
So here is what we would do. To get the Disney feel, go to Magic Kingdom. There is plenty to do there and this way you are not trying to navigate more than one park a day.
Download the MyDisneyExperience app on your phone. This way you can see wait times for rides and see what fastpasses are available.
Rides to try: Space Mountain is a roller coaster in the dark. Super fun! Usually there are a couple fast passes for this, so try and get them.
Haunted Mansion is a classic ride. I would try and go on this ride closer to the evening. It’s much more fun at night.
Pirates of the Carribbean- a wonderful ride for all to enjoy. You ride in a boat and go through the story.
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train- If you can get fastpasses for this, definitely do it. It’s a roller coaster that goes through the story of Snow White and is just a fun roller coaster all around. Stand-by wait times is usually two hours, so if you see a fastpass, grab it while you can!
Buzz Light Year Ranger Spin- A fun ride where you have to help Buzz defeat Zurg and you are in competition with who you ride with. Go help Buzz!
Peter Pan’s Flight- This ride is one of the original from when the park first opened. Fast passes are hard to get so if you see it, take that opportunity! Otherwise, Stand-by wait times is also 2 hours.
It’s A Small World- This is right across from Peter Pan and is also one of the originals. Definitely a good one to see during your time here.
Big Thunder Mountain- A fun rollercoaster for everyone!
There are shows at the castle and dance parties in front of the castle with characters that you can participate in. I always do!
Festival of Fantasy Parade is also a must see. Check your MyDisney App for times as they can change daily.
Happily Ever After Fireworks- Definitely got to see this show ending your evening at magic Kingdom. It’s a fun time for all to see the castle lit up and to watch fireworks over the Castle.
We hope you enjoy your day in Disney! If you have other rides to add to the list, let me know! Read my blog about the best restaurants in Magic Kingdom for your day there!
