    Do you think if we are coming to Disney in March and have never been there, Magic Kingdom would take us two days?

    Hi Elisa!

    Magic Kingdom Park is what most people imagine when they think of the Walt Disney World Resort, and it also happens to be my favorite park!  Although I do believe that it is possible to see the highlights in Magic Kingdom Park in one day, because it is your first time visiting, I would suggest planning to spend two days there.  There is so much to see that you could easily spend a week there without getting bored, so giving yourself the time to really take in all of the magic will allow you to fully appreciate all of the experiences that Magic Kingdom Park has to offer without feeling rushed!  Having two days also allows you the opportunity to go back and experience something that you may have missed on the first day.  

    I highly recommend looking through the list of attractions at Magic Kingdom Park.  This way, you can plan what attractions you would like to experience the most and also plan the best "route" for you to take once you enter the park.  Make sure to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours and FastPass+ so that you can make the most of the time you have in the park!  I also recommend that you purchase tickets with the Park Hopper Option.  With the Park Hopper Option, if you decide that you don't need another full day in Magic Kingdom Park, you can "hop" on over to one of the other amazing parks!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
