It’s really hard to do everything in Disney, and sometimes that tight schedule means you only have half a day in a park. It is possible to see and do everything that you want to do in a short amount of time – it just requires a little bit of extra planning. I’m sharing with you some of my best tips on how to do Magic Kingdom in half a day with kids!


Get there Super Early

Did you know that all of the parks at Disney World open about 30 minutes before its scheduled time?


Pay for VIP Parking

If you’re staying off-site, I recommend paying for VIP parking, which will help you get even more of a head start.


Pack Snacks and Drinks

If you want to save a little extra time throughout the day, pack all of your snacks and drinks.


Make a “Must Do” Ride List

Make a list of five rides that you MUST do, and make sure to get on those rides!


Rent a Stroller

The average person walks approximately 10 miles a day at Disney World! That’s a lot of walking, especially for kids.
