All About Our Day At Disney's Magic Kingdom #DisneyWorld


My family visited Disney World last week and we had a great time! Today I am going to share with you our day at Magic Kingdom. Be sure to read all about our day at Hollywood Studios too!

Due to Covid Disney World has reduced their theme park hours. Magic Kingdom is currently open from 9 am to 7 pm. We arrived at the transportation and ticket center around 8:15 am and rode the monorail to Magic Kingdom. The monorail is no longer being packed with tons of people. There are partitions in place and you are assigned a spot. This was actually nice. Once we arrived at Magic Kingdom we went through the temperature screening and bag check. Main Street was a little busy already for 8:30 am but it was nothing compared to the crowds I am used to seeing. We discovered that Disney is allowing guests to enter the park prior to the official opening time of 9 am. I think they are doing this to prevent crowds from gathering at rope drop. 

We headed straight to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train however we quickly discovered the ride was down. We debated if we should wait since it is such a popular ride and the line was not long. A cast member told us it was probably going to be down for a while. We decided to move along. We headed to Sleepy Hollow for some breakfast! My kids LOVE Mickey waffles and what better breakfast than a powdered sugar covered Mickey waffle?! The waffles came with whip cream and strawberries but some of us opted for them on the side. The waffles are $6 which is not bad.


YUMMY!! 

After our 'healthy' breakfast we headed to Space Mountain. Unfortunately this ride was also down. What a bummer. We ended up riding Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. There was no line at all here. Then we headed to Under the Sea Journey of the Little Mermaid. This is such a cute ride!! Then we went to the Barnstormer. This is a great first rollercoaster for smaller children.

Next up we rode Dumbo. The line is usually so long for this ride and I was shocked that it was just a 5 minute wait!! The kids were sad that the Mad Tea Party was being refurbished and we could not ride this one.  Next up we rode The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh. This is another classic super cute ride. 

We headed to Liberty Square and basically walked right onto Haunted Mansion! 

My kids have always enjoyed The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

We had a delicious dole whip at Sunshine Tree Terrace directly behind the Magic Carpets.

My kids loved the raspberry dole whips!! 


After a quick 10 minute wait we were off at Tomorrowland Speedway!

We rode The Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean (45 minute wait!!) and saw a very brief character parade go by. We were unable to do the Swiss Family Treehouse because my daughter had sprained her ankle 3 days prior to our Disney vacation and she had to wear a boot. She could not do the many steps required for the Treehouse. 
We rented a wheelchair for our park days. The wheelchairs are available for $12 per day. You can not take them out of the park. They do have complimentary wheelchairs located in the parking lots for you to use to get to the actual entrance of the park. Side note: the trams are not working currently. 

Around 4 pm we noticed the lines to many rides began to decrease in wait times. We did our favorite ride: Carousel of Progress! This is a great place to cool off too. After this ride we rode Splash Mountain (30 minute wait) and Thunder Mountain (20 minute wait). Then we rode Space Mountain not once but twice. Our kids LOVE Space Mountain. At 6:30 we got in the long line for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. The wait time was 45 minutes. This was our final ride of the day. We had a great day at our favorite place in the World, Magic Kingdom!! We did not see many characters and many of the restaurants were only available for pre orders on the app. This was a little irritating because we did not want to have to pre order food and pick a time slot for 2 pm when were hungry at 11 pm. This is why it is important to bring your own snacks and lunch if possible. Hopefully by the summer the restaurants will be open and the characters will be back.

 After riding pretty much all of the rides we had hoped to ride we went to the shops on Main Street at 7 pm. The shops stay open after park closing. Check out my Disney Souvenier Haul 

We did see Tinkerbell pass by on a treasure chest around 9 am when we were in line at Sleepy Hollow! 

Buzz Lightyear was greeting people on the stage in Tomorrowland!
