Walt Disney World For Families 101
Walt Disney World For Families 101
This advice is especially important for Disney’s water parks (which are packed by noon) and Animal Kingdom, which closes early.
If you’re staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can take advantage of Extra Magic Hour: every morning, one theme park opens one hour early for resort guests. Arrive at that park as early as possible, and beeline for the most popular rides.

For other parks, arrive at park opening and head for the most popular attractions, such as Splash Mountain. In the Magic Kingdom, you can jump the gun a bit: Main Street opens early so that people can have breakfast at Crystal Palace and Cindarella’s Royal Table. If you walk down Main Street, you can wait at the entrance to Adventureland, with a bunch of other impatient early-birds; once the park officially opens, you can be part of a dash to Splash Mountain. It’s kinda fun.

Note that, in Animal Kingdom, many of the animals sleep during the day: your best chance to see animals is early in the a.m. or right before closing time. Animal Kingdom closes at 5 or 6 p.m.
