Okay, so I went to Magic Kingdom for the first time ever with a group of besties. Picture 7 of the most laid back people and you’ve got our group hehe. Most women who hear traveling with 6 other ladies think “chaos” or “heck no!” But not my group! We are so close and legit had the time of our life together. Most of us have babies/toddlers and all we could think about was how much we couldn’t wait to get our family back after this trip. It’s just SO magical. Kristen, one of my BFFs who also happens to be a Disney Travel Agent, helped guide us through the park with ease on a schedule that made most sense. She can book and schedule out a trip for you that is tailored to your family *all for FREE*! Seriously, her services to book and schedule out your dream vacay are free and she is taken care of by Disney and her Travel Agency. It’s of ZERO extra cost to you.
I kept tabs on all the rides we rode that would be toddler friendly for Knoxy boy. And, in fact, majority would be safe for Rory to ride as well. I will likely just wear Rory in my carrier when we hop on rides as a family!
TIP: Get to the park as EARLY as possible (8:30 AM or sooner) to run to rides before anybody else, experience the castle without as many people around, grab photos, and start your journey around the park. As guests at a Disney Resort, we had access into the parks before they actually opened. This meant we got to see things and get in lines before people not staying in the park did. Again, Kristen can take care of ALL this for you!

Between all of these, this is a VERY packed day. You’re going to wait in line for these anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. BUT, I will say, the cues are set up in a way that waiting in line NEVER felt daunting. I never thought to myself how miserable it felt to be in a line. Everything is an experience at Disney – even the lines. I would suggest splitting these into two days or at least morning/nap time/late afternoon.
