Spring break is THE busiest time of year to visit Magic Kindgom Orlando, so please, take my advice and avoid it during this time of year. The crowds were horrendous, having a photo taken with a character was mission impossible. Good luck getting an autograph! Many of the staff at Magic Kingdom were grumpy - perhaps the combination of heat and crowds is too much? I tried making a booking to a restaurant for dinner and was told I had to make a booking 18 months in advance for thsi time of year - ridiculous! It really takes away the magic when fast passes are sold out by 11am, and you're unable to ride most of the popular rides until 11pm unless you're willing to wait over 2 hours! If you have young children, I would advise to go earlier, later or visit Disneyland LA instead - we found that to be much more magical!

It was my visit so for sure I had to see the Magic Kingdom. We went on a Monday. I enjoyed finally seeing the castle. Get there before the park opens to see the opening ceremony. This also allows you to make a beeline into the park and get in line. I wasn't traveling with any small children so we hit the big rides, all with < 10 min waits in the following order: Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, took the train to Fantastyland and road Space Mountain, grabbed lunch (before noon to avoid long lines), then walked around taking in the smaller attractions. Beware, the park becomes infested with strollers by mid day. The Electrical parade is worth seeing, get there super early for good seats and the WISHES nighttime spectacular is also great (but Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios is better).

Our first visit to the Majic kingdom without the kids. We had a great time and went to all the shops and had a nice lunch. We felt like kids again!!

Great place to bring the kids, but everything appeared to be the same when I was a kid. Not a single thing has changed since then. You need to go on an 'off-day' (never go on a weekend), otherwise the mobs will completely overwhelm you. Rather go to Universal or Epcot....won't be going back to the MK anytime soon.
