    Hi moms 37 days to go tryna plan ahead what is the quickest way to get to splash mountain gonna head straight there at park opening my 7yr daughter is a thrill seeker so taking advantage of fp then head to dumbo 4 my 2yr son good idea or no? Thanks in adva

    Hi there Shenell! How exciting your Walt Disney World vacation is just 37 days away!  After entering Magic Kingdom Park, if the Walt Disney World Railroad is at the Main Street, U.S.A. Station or approaching the station, then I would recommend riding the train to Frontierland. Splash Mountain is located near the Frontierland Station. With that being said, if you just miss the Walt Disney World Railroad after entering the park, then I would most likely walk to Splash Mountain. The quickest route is to walk down Main Street U.S.A. and take a left at the "hub" just in front of Cinderella Castle. You will go through Liberty Square and then Frontierland. I would allow approximately 10 - 15 minutes to make your way to Splash Mountain depending on how briskly you walk and how crowded the park is at that time. You may also consider taking the Walt Disney World Railroad from the Frontierland Station to the Fantasyland Station which is located near Dumbo the Flying Elephant. If you decide to walk from Frontierland to Fantasyland where Dumbo the Flying Elephant is located, I would highly recommend stopping at Peter Pan's Flight when you pass by in order to experience this highly popular attraction. Peter Pan's Flight often has long wait times so my family always experiences this attraction first thing. I do think your plan will ensure that you get to experience the top two attractions on your "must do" list; however, I would suggest touring the remainder of the park by "lands" in order to maximize your time and to decrease the amount of unnecessary walking throughout the day. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back if I can answer any additional questions for you. Best wishes for a magical trip, Shenell!
    Happy Planning,
