    we only have 1 day at MK w/ 2 very small kids (1,4) this saturday- what is the best strategy for doing the fantasyland rides w/ the shortest wait times? we will be getting there when park opens.

    Hi Katie!

         I have found that having a game plan for touring Magic Kingdom is the best way to avoid waiting in long lines.  I will give you a suggested itinerary for doing the rides in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom.  Keep in mind that in order for this plan to work that you need to be at the Magic Kingdom about 30 minutes before the park is scheduled to open and then after rope drop head straight to Fantasyland.  Here is a list of the order that I recommend doing the rides in Fantasyland:

    1. Dumbo the Flying Elephant
    2. Peter Pan's Flight
    3. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    4. Snow White's Scary Adventure
    5. Mickey's PhilharMagic
    6. It's a Small World
    7. Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
    8. Mad Tea Party

    Feel free to remove any rides from this list that you feel your kids would not be interested in, but keep the same order even if you remove a ride or two from this list.

    I hope that your day in the Magic Kingdom is truly magical and full of memories!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
