Complete guide to Magic Kingdom rides and attractions

(Article last checked: October 8, 2017)

Magic Kingdom - the heart of Disney World - has so many attractions.

I often suggest that people begin and end their trips with a visit to Magic Kingdom because it just feels the most Disney-like so it's a great way to kick off and wrap up a trip.

Here's a rundown of all Magic Kingdom rides and attractions...


In this article

A quick overview

Magic Kingdom has a hub-and-spoke layout with Cinderella's Castle being the hub and all of the lands as the spokes that branch out from there.

Due to the number of attractions here, I usually recommend that people try to spend 2 days if they can.

Magic Kingdom rides and attractions

Adventureland

Pirates of the Caribbean

An 8 1/2 minute gentle boat ride through a Caribbean city of pirates. This attraction has over 125 animatronics, including 3 Jack Sparrows so be on the lookout for those.

FP+ available? Yes
Height req.: None
Suitable for: Anybody
Recommended? Yes
When to visit: 3rd hr (or later w/FP+)
Tips: There's a little drop at the beginning of the ride and it's dark, but if you warn little ones and make it playful, they should be able to ride without much trouble

Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise is a river raft ride where animatronic animals and corny jokes abound. Every Jungle Cruise Skipper has their own "routine" with jokes so every ride is a little bit different. Little ones who are easily scared should maybe be told ahead of time that the animals are all pretend.

FP+ available? Yes
Height req.: None
Suitable for: Anybody
Recommended? Yes
When to visit: 3rd hr (or later w/FP+)
Tips: Ride at night for a unique experience and when the lines are shorter.

Magic Carpets of Aladdin

This is essentially Dumbo but with carpets. If you need to pare down your list of rides to fit them all in, this is definitely one that could be taken off. If you happen to have little ones who like the Dumbo-like rides, this will be fun for them.

Big Thunder Mt.

A great intro coaster for people who are working up the nerve to do bigger coasters. The theming is Old West style and there are lots of mountains and caverns to make your way through. There are no big drops like on scarier coasters but there are some fun dips that can lift you out of your seat.

Country Bear Jamboree

Like outdated animatronics that sing corny music? This is a fantastic show for you. OK, it's an easy attraction to get into and many little kids will probably have fun with it but it's definitely outdated and not a high priority.

Height req.: None
Suitable for: Anybody
Recommended? Only as a time filler and/or a chance to get out of the mid-afternoon heat
When to visit: Anytime

Tom Sawyer Island

A giant island that is basically a playground to explore. You board a raft near Big Thunder Mountain which takes you over to where you can venture around the island.

When to visit: 1st hr (no FP+ available)
Tips: At night, you get a fantastic view .

Tomorrowland Speedway

Most kids seem to love boarding these gas-powered cars and driving them around the track at the super fast speed of 7.5 mph. There are far better rides than this one but the track is so big that kids are often very drawn to it and want to ride. Because of the lines that build throughout the day, this is a good one to ride at the very beginning of 1 of your Magic Kingdom days.

Recommended? If you can get away with not riding it, then I wouldn't recommend it but kids will likely want to ride

Dining at Magic Kingdom

I have 2 dining guides below - 1 for dining inside Magic Kingdom and the other for dining at Magic Kingdom-area resorts.

Magic Kingdom ridesThe pros and cons of all Magic Kingdom restaurants
There are several good Quick Service options and character Table Service meals available in Magic Kingdom.

Pros and cons of all Magic Kingdom-area resort restaurants
There are several great resorts near Magic Kingdom and visiting them and dining at 1 of the restaurants makes for a great way to end a Magic Kingdom day.

WDW Prep Members

Level 2 WDW Prep Members have touring plan tools to put together their own plans. The attractions indicate height requirements, if it's a good use of FastPass+, illustrations of ride vehicles so you can see how many people will fit (especially handy if the kids outnumber the adults), and when to visit each attraction.

And as you build your touring plans, they are grouped by hour (for the first 3 hours) and then your whole plan is plotted on a map at the bottom of the page so you can see how it all lays out.

We had 2 days in the Magic Kingdom. I ended up dividing the park in halves. The first day we did almost everything in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. The next day we got there at rope drop and first did Seven Dwarfs Mine Train(30 minute line wait), Space Mountain(10 minute line wait), and Barnstormer(10 minute line wait). We then did the other half of Magic Kingdom that we had not done the first day. Even though it was very crowded on both days, we were still able to do almost every single ride and attraction and the longest line wait was for the Jungle Cruise for 45 minutes at the end of the second day. By dividing Magic Kingdom in halves, we limited our time running around the entire park saving both energy and time. My wife and 6 year old daughter had a blast and we avoided the meltdowns and fussing that a lot of families were having at the park.

mahiba

Hi I Just want to know if the celebrate the magic is displayed all the time or do the have special dates. Im going on October , but on a day that there is no MNSSHP. So I want to be sure I get to see this.

Thanks,

Atit

When did Magic Kingdom stop having two showings of celebrate the magic and wishes? I was there last March when they had two showings of each; going again this April but the schedule shows just one of each…anyone know?

Nicole W

I read awhile back that people were getting very wet on Pirates of the Caribbean. Is this still happening or has it been fixed?

KTalley

My daughter will be 4 1/2 when we go, she is in love with the princesses and Disney jr characters (sheriff Callie & doc!) but is OBSESSED with Mary Poppins, what are some tips you have to make sure that she gets some Mary Poppins Disney Magic?

Heather

I went in July of 2015. Mary Poppins and Pooh Bear/Tigger were best seen in the UK at Epcot. MP was just standing on the sidewalk with a half dozen people in line and you go solo into Christopher Robin’s room. The line wasn’t huge. It was fantastic.

Nancy Hewitt

Thanks so much for keeping this website updated. I can’t tell you how many other sites about the Disney parks have old information that is obsolete and misleading. Disney changes things all the time, and any website that seeks to inform the public of what’s happening there should keep up with it. I went to one website that said something about Liki Tikis near Adventureland in Disney World. Are they still there? If not, I wonder how old that information is. Thanks again!

Melissa

any info on the train that goes around the park?

Miriya

I just wanted to point out that Jack Sparrow is in POTC 3 times.

Paige Skeen

I just wanted to say what a great site I think this is! As the parent of a 3-year-old planning a quick trip to Disney World, this site really has everything I need to figure out where to go and what to do with my daughter. It will be her birthday, so the trip is all about her! We’ve been once before, but she was only a year old and too little to enjoy even most things at Magic Kingdom. This year, I think she will really have a blast! Thanks for all the great info!

Bambam Proctor

In early May, I am going with daughter, her husband and twin 4 1/2 yr old boy twins. We are staying in the Art of Animation resort.
I know that they will love the raceway-their mother did.
We are not doing Epcot, but we are doing Magic Kingdom, Hollywood and Animal Kingdom. Will there be any Frozen characters in any of these? Thank you for this fantastic site. I will measure the boys before we go to eliminate rides.

Melanie

I love your advice for Stitche’s great escape, recommended for nobody, you crack me up! We seriously do not like this attraction, yet, for some reason, my kids seem to want to “try it out again” every time we go. I’m hoping they will want to skip this one, what a waste of time. I really like your site, I just stumbled onto it yesterday and I want to read it all!!!

Marcy Kay

Thank you for getting this touring plan up before our October 2013 visit! This makes me more excited than ever!

Kasarah

My husband and I are taking our 3 kids under 5 in September 2014. We, or I, plan on being in Magic Kingdom for 3 days. We probably won’t be doing Epcot, so it gives us an extra day for MK, which I think would be more fun for the kids. I love your site, it def helps me A LOT in my Disney planing. Thank you so much for everything.

Maria B

I wouldn’t short-change EPCOT. I was shocked at how much my son loved EPCOT when he was only 5 years old. He was in awe of the animatronics in Spaceship Earth (we rode it twice) and LOVED Test Track. My daughter went last year (she was just 3 y/o) and she still talks about the “Nemo ride” and meeting all of the princesses in the World Showcase. The lines are typically shorter for the characters, too. We met Donald, Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto. Also, if your kids are FROZEN fans, Anna and Elsa are now featured in Norway. I hope they are still there in August 2014 when we plan to go back.

I might make some time, I think it’s worth it, but that’s just my opinion.

Bethany

When we visited in July, Town Hall princesses were Rapunzel, aurora, & Cinderella. Belle was not available there and it was the ONLY place to meet Rapunzel. Just a note for the princess lovers out there!

Mandy

We are headed out in a few weeks and haven’t been there for over 10 years. We are taking some newbies with us. Your site has been great for reliving the old, learning the new and creating excitement. Thank you for these simple and easy to follow reviews!

Karen Ruiz

Is Peter Pan’s flight going to be open in October? I read somewhere that it might close.

KRISTY LUTES

Yes, it will be closed for refurbishment. 🙁

Amy

We were there on Tuesday and it was closed. We had ridden it the week before, so we did not stop to find out why is was closed.
I do see it is closing on 9/28, and opening again on 11/1.

Kim ray

Ok, I must defend Stitch cos he is my fave animated character. Next, if my memory serves me right, there are 3 Capt. Jack Sparrows ( he is my fave) in Pirates of the Caribbean. LOVE ur website and emails! Keep up the great work!

I love Stitch, yes some of it gross, but Stitch is one of my favs.

Also, when we went in March for our year anniversary, we checked out Belle’s Fairytales and they picked my husband to be one of the knights. They did the same thing Jill mentioned and asked if anybody else wanted a part and a few kids got to be more cups and plates and all the kids got to march around.

I thought the show was great and we don’t have kids, the animatronics are great.

Moshe

The Barnstormer is showing no FP but then there is a comment that the FassPass is disconnected….

Curtis Traverse

We did a trip to WDW in May and the Enchanted Tales with Belle was probably one of the best things we did. My 6 year old loved it and the technology was pretty amazing. The one we attended all children were given some part to play if they wanted. They seemed to have an endless supply of props! At the end of the show every child got to have their picture taken with Belle and she spoke with each one.

Amy

We just returned from WDW on Wednesday. We started and ended our trip with the Magic Kingdom. So I was happy to see that you state that is the way to go. We were able to get on just about everything you mentioned here. The jungle cruise was down for 5 weeks (the hippos escaped, they said), so we weren’t able to ride that one. My hubby was chosen to be a part of Enchanted Tales with Belle! That was pretty cool. I have to say that Stitch was the WORST attraction we encountered in all 4 parks. I hated every part of it and so did my 6 yo daughter. I don’t think you could stress enough the NO you put on that review for Stitch.
Fantastic guide for MK!

Jay

Enchanted Tales with Belle, a “yes” in uppercase letters?
Okay, admittedly, I have not been to it, but I have watched countless videos of it… trying to find some reason to want to go. Even with kids.
What I see is a bunch of kids sitting on the floor of a room, Belle comes out, and she picks ‘some’ kids to come up, hold props, and pretend out parts of the movie.
The majority of the kids sit and watch.
You can get this at any public library in America on any given afternoon.
It seems to me that a princess meet and greet would be better than this.
Am I missing something?

Dawn

Jay, we did this with our kids a few years ago when it was in the “Enchanted Garden” and they loved it. My 11yo nephew was picked to be Gaston. He was embarrassed at first but he spent the rest of the day repeating his line and telling anyone who would listen about his experience. All I can say is it’s just another seemingly ordinary thing that is transformed into something extraordinary by Disney Magic.

James

That’s cool that your son got picked, but I imagine there are 20 or 30 kids in there… and the majority get the pleasure of just watching other kids have fun.

Stephanie

It’s worth it just to see Lumiere. He’s their most advance animatronic and looks, moves, and acts like he’s the real thing. While I understand adults without kids not feeling the desire to go, it far exceeded my expectations for a good time. My daughter had made a card for Belle in advance, which she thanked her for and put on the mantle next Lumiere. That made both of our days.

April

We did “stitch” before it was stitch- it was the alien I think? It was terrifying and I’m glad we did it but also that they removed it. I don’t like this version of it either. Here’s to hoping they remove it and make better use of this space!

Jay

I love that the Stitch show is at MK. It means more people are huddled up in that attraction and I don’t have to wait behind them for the good ones 😉

Jennifer B

This is just awesome! Thanks for putting it together. I am taking my family for the first time in Feb of 2014! Will you be doing this for the other parks?

Jenn

Have you ever ridden the main street vehicles? Mostly trying to determine where the horse drawn trolley starts and ends and the seem to only run 9:00AM to 10:15AM so not a very big window of opportunity.

We will end up being in MK 3 days on our next trip but one day will just be the Christmas party. Looking forward to some leisurely time exploring the parks.

Great idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQzeJuJyNt8

Appears that you get on near the flagpole circle and exit near the castle circle (near crystal palace). Takes about 5 mins.

Thanks!

Jill

We were just at MK last Thursday- we did Enchanted Tales with Belle and at the end, every child in the room got in line to meet Belle and have their picture taken with her, not just the kids in the show (they just got to go first).

Jay

ok, THIS might make it worth it… otherwise, it’s kids watching a few other kids play pretend.

Jay, the kids that got picked to be a part of the show, were the ones that were very enthusiastic in the room where we meet Wardrobe. They are quite a few “characters” so many children get to be a part of it. My daughter and hubby were both picked to be in it.

When we were there the girl gave out the main parts and asked if anyone else would like a part- they will give each kid a part that wants one, even if they aren’t part of the main story. All the kids (with and without parts) were invited to walk around the room in a little “parade” then all invited to get in line to meet Belle afterwards. Each child gets a photopass that is specific to their show, too!

We just got back from WDW on Wednesday and when we went to Enchanted Tales, they did let all of the kids take a photo with Belle at the end.
