    What day of the week would you typically see the least amount of traffic at Magic Kingdom in May?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Stacey!

    I love that you've come here to ask this question because I think if you asked five different experts which day of the week they think is the best to visit Magic Kingdom Park, you'd probably get five different answers. I've spent a lot of time researching this and trying different days for myself, so while there isn't really an official answer, I can certainly give you my personal opinion.

    My favorite day of the week to visit Magic Kingdom Park is Tuesday. This means that sometimes we don't get there until a few days into our vacation, but my family thinks it's worth it. My totally un-scientific reason for this is that most guests want to head straight to Cinderella Castle at the beginning of the week, so we like to start out the week somewhere else. We will usually spend the first day of our vacation at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and have dinner at Disney Springs in the evening. If we can't make it on a Tuesday or we arrive later in the week, I also think that Thursday is a great day to visit Magic Kingdom Park.

    While you're there, I have some suggestions for some great snacks that you should try! If you have a sweet tooth you have to visit Cheshire Café for a Cheshire Cat Tail, or if you're looking for something more savory, swing by The Friar's Nook for Loaded Fiesta Tots.

    Have a magical day, Stacey!
