    When is a better time to visit Magic Kingdom, Sunday during the Super Bowl or Monday the day of the Super Bowl parade? We will only be visiting one day and do not care about the game?

    Hi Kevin,

    Shhhh, don't tell anyone else, but Super Bowl Weekend is actually one of the best times for a Disney visit with relatively low crowds. It's been my family's ritual for years. While everyone else preps the wings and beer for a Super Bowl party, we head to Walt Disney World. 

    Early February already is a slower time at the parks, and the Magic Kingdom operating hours are the same on both that Sunday and Monday. So that part of the decision is a toss-up.

    However, my guess is that the parade for the Super Bowl Champions on Monday afternoon will draw a significant number of people along the parade route. That may cause the park to feel more crowded for a few hours, and it could be a little harder to move around with ease. So, I might make the call for a Sunday visit if it were me.

    Whichever day you choose, I recommend making your FastPass+ reservations now for three Magic Kingdom rides and attractions that are top on your priority list. Once you have used all three of your FastPasses, you can add another using the My Disney Experience app on your phone or tablet. FastPass+ lets you skip the standby line and enjoy your favorite rides faster.

    Thanks for your question, Kevin. I hope you have a magical one-day visit and plan to come back again real soon. Enjoy!
