Last time I told you my plan for hitting Fantasyland at rope drop, now we will hit Adventureland first. As we talked about before, have your runner. After rope drop, send one person ahead to Thunder or Splash Mountain and fastpass it, then meet the rest of the group at Pirates of the Caribbean. After Pirates go on the Jungle Cruise then The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Take a walk through the Swiss Family Tree and start heading towards Frontierland, taking a stop at the Enchanted Tiki Room. Before going on Thunder Mountain or Splash Mountain, fastpass the one you didn’t fastpass earlier. While waiting for your next fastpass to be ready go to Tom Sawyer Island and explore, watch out for the secret tunnels at Fort Langhorne one leads to the back side of the island and loops around. This gave my wife quite a scare when we were the only ones there and let the kids play in the fort while we waited in a shaded area. My younger daughter took one of the tunnels and came up behind us. After Tom Sawyer Island walk around Frontierland going to the Country Bear Jamboree or even the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade. Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn is a great place to grab a burger for lunch. Depending on your fastpass time choose a good time to eat. After finishing Frontierland, make your way to Tomorrowland via the walkways in front of the castle. Once you are in Tomorrowland, fastpass Space Mountain, then go to Tomorrowland Transit Authority. This is a relaxing attraction and a chance to see all of Tomorrowland from above (it’s even better at night with all the lights on). For nostalgia sake we always do Walt Disney’s Carrousel of Progress, also there is never a wait and its cool inside. From there we go to the Laugh Floor, fastpassing Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin. In Tomorrowland we skip Stitch and the Tomorrowland Indy Speedway. At the Speedway there is always a long wait no matter what time you go. After going on Space Mountain and waiting to go on Buzz, head in to Fantasyland until your fastpass time is ready. End the day by walking down Main Street.
The Magic Kingdom is definitely a multiple day park so don’t expect to get everything done in one day. Also arriving at the Magic Kingdom’s opening is key to getting as much done as possible so pay attention to park hours including Extra Magic Hours. The one thing that will set you apart from the rest of the vacationers at any Walt Disney World park is planning ahead, know what you want to do and know the layout of the parks. Although these are aggressive touring plans make sure that you don’t become obsessed with the plan you make for yourself, surprises happen all the time, good, bad and spectacular. So don’t get upset if you have to make changes during the day. Since we are lucky enough to go to Walt Disney World often, there are attraction that we don’t go on every trip.
