Menus Touring Plans    

Updated:  9/7/2014

The Magic Kingdom is HUGE and has a lot of attractions to do.  I recommend that you plan to schedule at least two days to take it all in and not feel stressed.

I recommend that you arrive 30-45 minutes before this park opening.  Make your way all the way to the LEFT.  You’ll see a bunch of people at the rope, but they don’t realize that the little rope on the side opens too.  You’ll be able to walk right up.

ktp iconThis plan was designed to be able to ride every ride and meet every character and allow time to see the parades, shows and fireworks in two days without much backtracking or rushing around.  If the park closes at 11:00 PM or later, you won’t have any problem riding most rides after 9:00 PM with little or no waits.  The four attractions for which you’ll find a wait all day will be Meet Anna and Elsa, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan’s Flight and Space Mountain, so we’ll use FASTPASS+ for those.

What should I do about Anna and Elsa?

Option ONE – USE Fastpass+.  I highly recommend that you find a FP+ for these ladies!  Find a time, any time, and then insert the meet into this schedule as it fits your day.  If you have difficulty locating a FP+ during your trip, you may want to try this trick on How to Get Difficult to Find Fastpasses 

Option TWO – WAIT!  If you choose to be among the people pulling hamstrings running the 1/4 mile from the Train Station to the Castle Rope, you better stay the LEFT at the rope.  They are now forcing EVERYONE to turn left around the Prince Charming Carousel.  People are waiting 2 or 3 hours to meet these ladies.  The rope drop procedure can take 7-10 minutes to get to the Castle.

Shouldn’t I run to Space Mountain first?

Nope, if you want to see the characters, especially the princesses, you’ll need to take on Fairytale Hall one day and meet Merida first the other day.  You’ll see that the plan has been proven with times beside each item.

Shouldn’t I run to Peter Pan’s Flight first?  

Peter Pan’s Flight is a very short, it’s a 3 minute long, ride in the dark.  For some reason people are willing to wait in line 1 to 2 hours just to experience this attraction.  If you are planning to meet the Princesses at Fairytale Hall, you’ll only find a short wait afterward on the slowest of days.  I recommend that you schedule a Fastpass+, so you won’t have to wait in line or run to get there.

Magic Kingdom Female Character Touring Plan with MORNING Extra Magic Hour

In order to meet all these ladies with the shortest waits possible, you will need to dedicate the first two hours to nothing more than meeting characters and acquiring FASTPASSES.

  • Why start at Fairytale Hall?  Not only does it put you in position to meet several characters in one area, it also allows you the shortest wait for the Prinesses.  If you have FASTPASS+ priveledges, you should use those for rides like Peter Pan, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain and Winnie the Pooh.
Rapunzel and Snow White Fairytale Hall
Cinderella and Aurora Fairytale Hall
  • If a long line is forming Get Fastpass for Cinderella and Aurora and return later
Fairy Godmother Fantasyland – Behind the Castle
  • Walk down the pathway from the Castle to line up for Merida.
Merida Fairytale Garden
  • Walk back up the Castle Pathway to find the Tremaines near the Wall.
Anastasia, Drisella & Lady Tremaine Fantasyland – New Wall
  • Make your way to Adventureland to meet Jasmine. She will meet near the Magic Carpets beside the store.
Aladdin / Jasmine Adventureland – Magic Carpets
  • Make your way to Liberty Square. It’s easiest to go toward the Adventureland Bridge and turn left. You’ll see her meet on the left behind the Christmas Shoppe.
Tiana Liberty Square –Christmas Shoppe
  • Because Wendy offers limited meets in the morning, lets walk up the path beside the Haunted Mansion. She meets at the end of the Peter Pan queue across from the Rapunzel bathrooms.
Wendy Fantasyland – Next to Peter Pan’s Flight
  • This is the last crucial piece for a short wait. Arrive at Jessie’s meet a few minutes before her first meet.
Jessie Splash Mountain – Exit area
  • Pick a time that is best for you to meet Alice.
Alice Fantasyland – Mad Tea Party
  • I would wait until during a parade or late in the evening to meet Tinker Bell and her Fairy friend for the shortest wait.
Tinker Bell & Fairy friend Adventureland – Tink’s Nook
  • The lines for Marie easily reach 20 to 30 minutes shortly after opening. She meets on the LEFT side facing the Castle. Return 5-10 minutes before she comes back from lunch break for the shortest wait.
Marie Town Square – Flag Pole
  • Mary Poppins stops offering meets early in the day, so see her in Town Square or meet her in Epcot another day.
Mary Poppins Town Square – near Mickey’s Fastpass machines
  • Daisy & Minnie should have a short wait later in the evening, but you can choose a time that is best for you.  They offer unique costumes that you won’t see in other parks
Daisy Duck & Minnie Mouse Pete’s Silly Circus – Storybook Circus
  • Ariel should have a short wait later in the evening, but you can choose a time that is best for you.
Ariel New Fantasyland – Grotto
  • I would get in line for Enchanted Tales with Belle late at night or just before closing to have the shortest wait. This attraction often has among the longest waits in the Magic Kingdom. So, why didn’t we go here first like others do? Because you’d give up 3 to 6 character meets with no wait.  Belle is available for actual meet and greets in Epcot in her blue smock.
