The difference between Disneyland in California and Disney's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida, is the numerous individual lands in the latter than the former. Disney's Magic Kingdom has an enormous surface area to travel including the lands of Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Main Street USA and Liberty Square. To make the most of your travel to the Magic Kingdom, here are a few things to remember.
According to Travel and Leisure, parking, often the least thought-about item in the checklist for a seamless travel to Disney's Magic Kingdom, could be terrible once a family arrives in the Magic Kingdom. There is no parking in front of the Magic Kingdom and one could head for the long lines at the Ticket and Transportation Center. It would be best for travelers from far off states to park their vehicles in their hotels and instead use hotel shuttles headed to Disney's Magic Kingdom, which drop off directly at the Ticket and Transportation Center.
According to Alamo City Mom's Blog, the best way to enjoy the Magic Kingdom is to dine with characters. The blog advises that making online dining reservation with Disney characters online should be as early as 180 days in advance. The blog states that the "My Disney Experience" app allows for this convenient immediate reservation for characters including Crystal Palace with Winnie The Pooh and other iconic Disney characters, Cinderella's Royal Table with most Disney Princesses available and other locations.
The same tip above could be applied for rides; book a ride in advance to ensure a slot in them and add them to your scheduled activities. Visitors should make sure to look at the height and age requirements for each ride. Disney Magic Kingdom is strict with the enforcement of its safety regulations, so be informed well ahead.
Lastly, be sure to bring a small waterproof case that you could wear around your neck. Reaching into your bag for tickets, IDs, credit cards and other important park items could shuffle and delay your transactions. A small waterproof case for these makes everything organized and easy to access.
