Best Day to Visit the Magic Kingdom
Best day of the week to visit Magic Kingdom?
Dad's Godfather Answer
Amy, thanks for the question. It's a really hard one to answer, but I'll try.
First let me quote Tom Hanks from one of Dad's favorite movies "You've Got Mail" (Yes, Dad's a sentimental slob and cries every time Brinkley comes bounding around the corner) - the best time to visit the Magic Kingdom is Monday, Tuesday, Tursday".
(Yes, that's the way I meant to spell it.)
The best day of the week to visit the Magic Kingdom depends. It depends on a few variables. Do you have park hopper tickets? Are you staying in a Disney hotel? What time of year is it? Are there any special events coming up? Did you get reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table?
In Dad's opinion any day can be a great day in the Magic Kingdom. Are there some days of the week that are busier than others, sure. Sometimes the locals come out on the weekends. Sometimes they don't. Sunday mornings can be very quiet, but Sunday afternoons can get real busy.
Some of the guidebooks talk about vacations ending on a certain day of the week and the next day being a good day to visit. I'm not sold on that. There is some evidence that the day after Extra Magic Hours the crowds are lower in the Magic Kingdom, but not significantly so.
But the bottom line is what do you need to make your plan work for you.
If you'd like Dad to take a look at a specific time frame we can work together to see what the best day is for a visit to the Magic Kingdom.
