    Is it better to go to the magic kingdom early or late in the day when you have toddlers in the month of July and August do to the hot weather?

    Hi, Magel! The early bird catches the worm. Poor metaphor though, because it assumes you or your kin are aviary creatures and you desire a slimy something for breakfast. In all instances, a Mickey waffle on property is paramount to the worm.


    Suffice to say, wake up early, get to Magic Kingdom before the park opens and hit the ground running. It will be cooler in the mornings and the crowd levels will also be at their lowest. You can tour a lot of the park - in fact, all of Fantasyland - in a few methodical morning hours.

    Then, grab lunch and head back to your resort for a nap. You'll be resting when the parks are most crowded, and you'll be refreshed to return to the parks when the crowds have thinned out slightly and the temperatures drop a few degrees.
