    Magic Kingdom Attractions in 1 day!

    While I would never suggest doing this to anyone of the faint of heart, it can be done!

    For those brave souls wishing to accomplish this feat, you must be:
    1. An experienced Disney traveler
    2. Fast
    3. Content with missing all live performances.
    4. willing to not repeat any attraction

    In order to accomplish this task you need to be in the Magic Kingdom on a day where the park is opon from 9AM till 12AM or the equivalent (in early summer traffic) other time periods could make this very different.

    1. Arrive at the park at opening time (we will assume that is 9AM)
    2. Get a fastpass for Peter Pan's Flight (even if the line is short, just get the fastpass
    3. Ride 4 other Fantasyland attractions (choose the ones with the shortest wait time (they will probably be: Small World, Philarmagic, Snow White (not a problem anymore), or the carousel.
    4. If time permits, ride another Fantasyland attraction, if your fastpass is ready go on Peter Pan's Flight!
    5. DO NOT FINISH FANTASYLAND NOW! Walk to Adventureland, if line for Jungle Cruise is under 10 minutes, ride this. If over get a fastpass.
    6. Visit Pirates of the Caribbean, Enchanted Tiki Room, and Magic Carpets of Aladdin.
    7. If you have a fastpass for Jungle Cruise, ride it.
    8. Walk to Frontierland, which has a longer queue? Splash or Big Thunder. Get a fastpass for that one-ride the other while you wait. Or if lines are short-ride both
    9. If your fastpass hasn't come around yet, visit Country Bear Jamboree.
    10. Ride your fastpassed attraction.
    11. It should be lunch time or later than that, that's fine! Eat at Pecos Bill's (good burgers)
    12. Depending on the parade times for the day. If parade is soon go to Fantasyland. If not go on Hall of Presidents.
    13. If there is time visit Haunted Mansion
    14. During the parade, skip anything from Fantasyland to the left that is not finished, go to Tomorrowland.
    15. Fastpass Space Mountain
    16. Go on Buzz, Stitch, CoP, TTA, Astro Orbiter, and Monster's Inc.
    17. Ride Space.
    18. Depending on the time it may be dinner time... Eat at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe (chicken mmmmmmmm)
    19. Finish Fantasyland.
    20. Take a ride on the Walt Disney World Railroad!
    21. Ride the Liberty Belle River Boat
    22. Visit Tom Sawyer Island
    23. View Main Street Electrical Parade
    24. Fireworks.
    25. FINISH WHATEVER YOU MISSED BEFORE PARK CLOSING

    That should be everything currently open! This should be a much easier task during construction of new Fantasyland. When I did this Toontown was still open so we had to do all of that. So in theory, this should all be finished a lot sooner than usual and you should have time for a Root Beer Float to finish off a successful day!

    My DW and I did something like this a long time ago when we were first engaged. Did all the attractions at MK one day, then Epcot, then DHS. Didn't seem like too tiring back then over 20 years ago. Have never done that since.

    Talking Re: Magic Kingdom Attractions in 1 day!

    This reminds me of the time when I lived in FL that a friend and I tried to do every 'ride' at WDW in one day - yes, all 4 parks in one day! We defined a 'ride' to be an attraction vehicle that was not designed primarily as transportation. This did eliminate all of the shows and movies as well as the train at MK and the boats on World Showcase lagoon.

    I actually broke it down on a spread sheet in 5 minute intervals and made a few dry runs to test walking distances between rides and parks. It was actually possible...without meal and bathroom breaks!

    The day that we were to attempt this, my friend and I sweet talked our way into being allowed to enter AM EMH! I had a seasonal pass and he had a comp ticket previously given to him by a cast member. When they opened the gates, I went through, turned around to make sure my friend had gotten through only to find out that the ticket that had been given to him was invalid as it had already been used!

    Unfortunately, we never made another attempt after that....it would have been great trying to do that though!

    Re: Magic Kingdom Attractions in 1 day!

    My friend and I hit all major attractions in MK in one night. We started at 6pm and finished at 1:58am (Park closed at 2). I was very happy! We didn't hit Country Bear or Hall of Presidents.. Those were the ONLY things we did not get to.

    My friend and I did this in the beginning half of June so all the school travelers were down there. Made it a bit more busy.

    Re: Magic Kingdom Attractions in 1 day!

    On our very first trip we tried to fit in everything because we thought it was going to be a "once in a lifetime". Boy were we wrong. We failed miserably, but had a fantastic time trying. Hats off to anyone who can do it.




    April 2001 - All Star Movies
    September 2002 - All Star Music
    May 2004 - Pop Century
    October 2006 - All Star Movies
    October 2008 - Pop Century (1 night solo tour)
    June 2010 - Pop Century

    Hope to be taking a Cruise on Disney Magic in 2012...fingers crossed.

    Well on the list I have Finish Fantasyland, which would encompass Dumbo.

    Interestingly enough though, when I did this, Dumbo was the last attraction we went on before closing. We finished with 10 minutes left to spare

    exactly, that's why I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that hasn't already been there at least 10 times xP
