    We can only visit the Magic Kingdom for 1 day on December 29, 2015 9a-11p what are the top things to do in that limited amount of time? 2 a and 6 y girl. Won't eat there so we don't need those added. Just want to get the the best parts.

    Hello Keyanne!
    The days surrounding Christmas are some of - if not THE- busiest days at the Walt Disney World Resort. Planning ahead for what to do on what will be a very crowded day is essential. First and foremost, plan to be at the park gates at least 30 - 45 minutes before opening. During busy times of the year, park opening times can sometimes be moved to an earlier time. So, make sure and check the website often for updates.

    You will want to identify your "must-dos" right away so you are ready to book your FastPass+ selections as soon as you can. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel you can make your selections 60 days in advance; if not, you can make them 30 days in advance. In order to do so you will need to have purchased your tickets and linked them in your My Disney Experience. With the age of your children I would focus on Fantasyland. In fact, it if was me, I would book FastPass+ selections for Enchanted Tales with Belle, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and It's a Small World. But please take a look at all of the Magic Kingdom attractions to make sure there are right for you and your family.

    The park will be decked out in its holiday finery and everyone's spirits will be high, so even if you can't enjoy too many attractions due to the crowds, you are sure to have a great time! Even with the crowds you should be able to see some fantastic shows and parades.

    I hope you have a magical time during your one day visit to the Magic Kingdom!

    See ya real soon,
