Going to a park on Monday and debating Magic Kingdom vs Animal Kingdom - will Magic Kingdom be significantly more crowded? Going to be possible to get on a good amount of rides? Last year I could reserve some rides when I went to Epcot - guessing it will be too late now.

Hello people.


I went to Mk today for the energy and waves tour. Which, consists of the Haunted Mansion, Stitch's Great Escape(I hated it) and, Mickey's Phillarmgic(meh). I was pretty cool going behind the scenes for the Ballroom scene.After the tour, we went on Space Mountain twice and, Pirates of the Caribbean. It was pretty cool, other than the fact that, someone in my group decided that buying lightsabers is more fun than going on the Seven Dwarf's Mine Train.

I didn't choose those people. The people I actually chose agreed with me. :?r

Delayed mini trip report. I went on MLK day this year (1/18) and while the park was pretty crowded, I was able to get on the majority of rides, except for that darn Peter Pan's Flight, which had a 70 minute wait all day.

I stayed from 10:00 a.m through 6:00 p.m. and did the following:

Space Mountain (fast pass)
Splash Mountain (fast pass)
Pirates of the Caribbean (fast pass)
Thunder Mountain
Haunted Mansion - this was much cooler when I was younger
Jungle Cruise
It's a Small World
Hall of Presidents
Tomorrowland Speedway
Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid
Ate lunch and grabbed some ice cream (~45 mins total)

Monster's Inc was closed, as was Buzz Lightyear. Didn't have interest in Seven Dwarfs Train or kiddie rides.

In my opinion, unless you've got kids that are slowing you down (which I recognize most do) or you want to literally do every attraction, there's no reason you can't fit Magic Kingdom into one day. One thing I love - fast pass. One thing I don't like - the lack of casual dining options (i.e. go up to the window and grab some chicken fingers, burger, etc.)

I wouldn't blame him with those wait times, especially if he didn't use a fastpass for it.

You left out a few important factors in your visit.....

1. it takes a LOT longer to do things when you have kids. Diaper changes, meltdowns, bathroom breaks, i'm thirsty/hungry, and just the fact that they do not move as fast as an adult does. If you have smaller children, you also have to factor in the parent swaps as well.

2. Not everyone wants to do the same attractions as you did.We would have wanted to do a bunch more/ different attractions as you did. Seven dwarfs and meeting mickey for one.....

3. Once you add in parades, shows, fireworks...ect, most of the day is gone. You also have to factor in re-rides on attractions that the kids love and want to go on again.
