Magic Kingdom Touring Plan
Touring plans make it easy for you to get the most out of your trip by outlining the order you should visit rides and attractions, allowing you to enjoy the top experiences in the park.
This touring plan was created for those visiting Magic Kingdom. This touring plan is designed to be used for those visiting the park for a single day as well as for multiple days. Those visiting multiple Walt Disney World parks on the same day may also take advantage of this plan.
Prior to visiting Walt Disney World, we recommend that you download the official Walt Disney World app on the App Store or the Google Play Store. The app provides wait times, showtimes, a resort-wide map, and more.
ENTERING THE PARK
We recommend getting to the park turnstiles at least 45 minutes prior to park opening, especially during summer, U.S. holiday weekends, and other break periods. When you have entered the park, you can grab a guide map to help locate the park’s rides and attractions and to view showtimes as well as other details. If you download the official Walt Disney World app, this information and more can be accessed on it.
Attractions Utilizing a Virtual Queue
The following attractions utilize a virtual queue; a standard standby line is not available. In order to experience the following attractions, guests are required to join a virtual queue using the official Walt Disney World mobile app. If available, an individual Lightning Lane may be purchased to bypass the virtual queue. Walt Disney World's virtual queue system enables guests to obtain a boarding group throughout the day, depending on availability, which is used to indicate a guest's place in line. If a guest's boarding group is called, a notification is sent via the app to inform when the attraction can be experienced.
TRON Lightcycle / RunThis attraction utilizes a virtual queue, requiring you to obtain a boarding group via the Walt Disney World app in order to experience it. Alternatively, if available, an individual Lightning Lane may be purchased to bypass the virtual queue. Plan accordingly.
Experience Within First or Last Few Hours
The following attractions typically experience the most extended wait times. We suggest visiting them as soon as possible or a few hours prior to park closing due to their slightly shorter wait times during these periods. These attractions are not listed based on the order in which you should visit them. You should rank the attractions based on their importance to you and/or proximity to each other and visit them in that order. If needed, you can purchase Disney Genie+ and/or individual Lightning Lane for participating attractions.

TIP: If you’re only visiting the park for a single day, we recommend eating breakfast prior to arriving at the park in order to experience more attractions. It’s important to remember, however, that you shouldn’t rush your way to every attraction. Take time to enjoy the different areas of the park. Cherish your memories by taking photographs with characters and at the various themed areas.
NOTE: This touring plan lists most rides and attractions at the park, so you may not be able to visit them all in a single day. You should select the attractions that you’re most interested in.
DISNEY GENIE+ AND INDIVIDUAL LIGHTNING LANE: You can purchase Disney Genie+ and/or individual Lightning Lane for select attractions throughout the park.
