    Is it possible to ride every ride in the magic kingdom in 1 day?

    Hi Eric,

    As Walt Disney himself said, "It's kind of fun to do the impossible." While enjoying each attraction at Magic Kingdom Park in one day might not be impossible, it could definitely be challenging! I've actually seen some trip reports from Guests who have attempted completing every attraction in all FOUR of the theme parks in one day, so to them, this might seem like a piece of cake, but I'd say that for the typical Guest, it will be difficult to experience everything in one day. However, with a really great plan in place, some excellent FastPass+ selections, and a bit of pixie dust, it could be possible!

    Are you staying at a Disney Resort hotel? Being able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours would definitely help as it would give you an extra hour in the morning or two hours in the evening with lighter crowds. I'd also suggest arriving about an hour early so that you have plenty of time to get through security and ticketing and be ready to go as soon as the park officially opens.

    Be sure to maximize the FastPass+ service! You'll be able to choose three attractions before you arrive, and I'd suggest those with typically longer waits like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, or Splash Mountain. Once you've enjoyed your original selections, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make additional choices, one at a time, until the park closes. Other attractions with potentially longer waits include Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan's Flight, Big Thunder Mountain, Haunted Mansion, and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, so you may also want to consider using FastPass+ for those or visiting them either first thing in the morning or at the end of the day when lines are shorter.

    I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll be able to experience as much as possible, Eric, and hope you enjoy soaking up every BIT of magic and fun!
