Magic Kingdom Day 1 Seven Night Itinerary For Higher Crowd Periods at Walt Disney World

By Dave Shute

(Note: this is from the Disney World Higher Crowd Itinerary, Seven Night Variant.)


Today you start your visit to the Magic Kingdom, seeing Tomorrowland and then touring some lower-wait attractions in Adventureland and Frontierland. You have brunch at Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort near the Magic Kingdom, and end your day at Fort Wilderness’s Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue.

You should have FastPass+ for Space Mountain, the Tomorrowland Speedway, and the Jungle Cruise. The other fixed points in your schedule are Chef Mickey’s and Hoop-Dee-Doo.


Be at the park by 45 minutes before open.


Space Mountain from

  • At open, head to Tomorrowland and see Buzz Lightyear
  • See Space Mountain (FP+)
  • Ride Astro-Orbiter
  • Ride the Tomorrowland PeopleMover
  • Ride the Tomorrowland Speedway (FP+)
  • Exit the park about 10.30 and either walk or take the resort monorail to the Contemporary Resort. Eat at Chef Mickey’s
  • Return to the park, head into Tomorrowland, and see the Carousel of Progress and Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor
  • Go to Adventureland and fit the Swiss Family Treehouse and the Enchanted Tiki Room around your FastPass+ for the Jungle Cruise
  • Find the passage into Frontierland and see the Country Bears
  • If you have time, find the rafts near Big Thunder Mountain and see Tom Sawyer Island
  • Around 5p head for the main entrance and look for the boat docks right in front
  • Take the boat to Fort Wilderness (not the Wilderness Lodge), and follow the crowds to the Hoop Dee Doo area, and check in for the 6.15p show.
  • See Hoop-Dee-Doo
  • Ask cast members outside for the best way to get back to your hotel.  Most likely you will return by boat to the Magic Kingdom, and catch a bus or monorail there.


Tomorrow you continue your visit to Magic Kingdom.
