Top Magic Kingdom Attractions to do BEFORE 10am

The concept of “Rope Drop” is second nature to many guests, but some guests need a little incentive to get up early! With the new change of herding guests in the Hub vs at the Train Station for the Welcome Show, things have changed a little bit…but not a ton!

HAUNTED MANSION (LIBERTY SQUARE)

One of my favourite attractions to do first thing in the morning is the Haunted Mansion, mostly due to the opening cast members still being in full “MAGIC” mode and starting the day in the stretching room is an incredible experience that we all should do at least once.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN (ADVENTURELAND)

There are two things to keep in mind with POTC in the AM.

The first is that the probability of getting your own boat (or sharing with one or two other families) is all depending on how fast you can walk to the attraction.

Secondly, they only have one side of the queue (and one half of the boats) running until around 1030-11am so keep that in the back of your head as you’re walking through the fort to board your boats!

BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN RAILROAD (FRONTIERLAND)

If you head to the back of the park first thing, you could probably ride BTM and Splash a couple times before the rest of the folks make their way through the other attractions, but this is a hit or miss…as these are also very easy last-minute FastPass+ reservations to get.

UNDER THE SEA – THE JOURNEY OF THE LITTLE MERMAID (NEW FANTASYLAND)

This is such a great attraction to get done before 10am because it’s hidden in a part of the Magic Kingdom that takes a little effort to get to if you’re in a hurry.

Remember that it’s a clamshell (similar to a Doombuggy @ The Haunted Mansion), so the constant loading attraction can go through a fair amount of guests an hour!

MORNING EXTRA MAGIC HOUR TIP

If you’re planning on being at the Magic Kingdom during Morning Extra Magic Hours, keep in mind that only half of the park is open. Adventureland, Frontierland and Liberty Square don’t open until the park officially opens, so wandering over to try to get on the Haunted Mansion won’t work!

WHAT’S THE BEST TOURING PLAN FOR EARLY MORNING EXTRA MAGIC HOURS?

  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Under the Sea – The Journey of Little Mermaid
  • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin

ONCE THE PARK OPENS

  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Haunted Mansion (take the breezeway from Adventureland to Liberty Square)
  • Big Thunder Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Then breakfast at Gaston’s Tavern!

Hope this helps! Any time that we can add value by providing insights…bonus!
