    Arriving at MK around 2pm (by car from LA) on Sept19, extra hours say the park will be open till 12am. Is this enough time to ride all the major attractions? In our early 20's, no kids! Thinking to hit Fantasyland around 3pm, kids nap around then right?

    Hi Erica!  Since September 19 is indeed an Extra Magic Hour night in the Magic Kingdom you should have lots of time to enjoy all of the major attractions in the park.

    Although it is logical to think that Fantasyland will be quieter in the afternoon due to napping I have never found this the case.  For the attractions that have the longest lines such as Peter Pan, I would attempt to ride these later in the evening when families will tend to head back to their resorts.  You can also try hitting the popular ones during the parades and fireworks if you are not interested in those special events yourself.  I once rode Thunder Mountain nine times while the parade was going by as everyone else left to watch it and there were no lines at all.

    Being young means you won't mind a fast pace around the park.  Always check for any attractions that might still have FAST PASSES available for that day as that will save you a lot of time.  You can check with the attraction board in the park when you arrive and head to one of them to get a FAST PASS first thing. Enjoy!
