Having a plan before you head into the parks at Walt Disney World is so important.
If you don’t figure it out, at least loosely, you will spend a lot of time running from attraction to attraction wasting a lot of time. Plus, you will also want to plan ahead so you can take advantage of Fastpass+
When you plan your trip you will also want to make sure that there is enough time for down time. No one wants a cranky toddler
So my suggestion is to start out at rope drop in the morning (as soon as the park opens) and take a break midway to go back to the hotel and recharge and then come back around dinner time.
The new section of Fantasyland is located at the very back of the park.
You can either go right through Tomorrowland or go straight around the castle to the middle section of Frontierland.
My suggestion is to take the train, right at the beginning of the park in Main Street U.S.A.
The train will take you on a tour through Adventureland and stop at the Fronteirland stations before you get off at the new Fantasyland station.
Here you will be right in the area that is home to Pete’s Silly Show, Dumbo and more.
You need to make your Fastpass selections based on the personality of your toddler. If your Mousekatot likes thrills, you will have to get a Fastpass for The Great Goofini.
If your little one loves the characters, you will want to checkout Pete’s Silly Sideshow.
You will also want to look at possibly getting a Fastpass for Dumbo, what toddler wouldn’t want to take a ride on Dumbo?
Must visit attractions
While there are a lot of attractions, there are also a lot of time wasting traps. For example, there is a cute little splash area right outside of Pete’s Silly Sideshow.
Your toddler can spend a lot of time splashing around here. However, if you are not careful you can spend most of your time here.
In my opinion, here are the must visit attractions for toddlers in new Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom:
- Pete’s Silly sideshow
- The Great Goofini
- Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid
- Enchanted Tales with Belle
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
There is a height requirement for mine train of 38 inches.
If your child is tall enough, and brave enough, you will want to get a Fastpass for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.
If not, then you will want to get a Fastpass for Enchanted Tales with Belle and The Great Goofini.
Dumbo has a great feature that is an indoor playground that your toddler can play in while they wait in line. You will be given a pager to let you know when it is your turn to for the attraction.
Don’t forget to work in some time to grab a quick snack. Gaston’s Tavern and Maurice’s Popcorn Cart are two great places to grab a bite to eat.
The number one thing to remember when you are planning your day is that you are on vacation and to take your time and really enjoy yourself. Your vacation is about making memories and sharing time with your loved ones.
