How to Have a Fantastic Day at the Magic Kingdom in 10 Easy Steps

Castle Front Main St. USA

1. Arrive Early!

Whether you are staying onsite at a Disney hotel or offsite, arrive at the Magic Kingdom entrance, tickets in hand (or Magic Bands) at least 30 minutes before official opening.  On most days, you will be allowed into the front of the park 30 minutes early.  You’ll be able to browse the Main Street USA shops, grab a breakfast item and/or take pictures of your family against the backdrop of Cinderella Castle.  At opening time, you will be allowed into the rest of the park, ahead of almost everyone!
