This is our tour of the Magic Kingdom park. We took a family trip at Christmas, which is the merriest time at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The park is decorated with wreaths, Christmas trees, and many rides with themed decor.
We start our day by taking the Disney Resort Monorail to the front gates of the of the Magic. Like all visitors, we make our way to the many rides the park has to offer by walking up Main Street USA. We briefly stop to take in the beautiful and majestic Cinderella’s Castle and then turn right, to Tomorrowland. We ride The People Mover before using our first fast pass of the day at Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. It was a great choice because the line was over 50 minutes at 9am in the morning.
From there, we tour Fantasyland and get a quick look at Winnie the Pooh and Tiger getting ready for a character meet and greet at The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. We decide to head to It’s a Small World because, Ava, Ella & Rose all love the ride the most. We didn’t have fast pass because we heard the lines are usually not that bad. The line wait time was listed at 40 minutes, but we ended waiting over an hour, which, was not very enjoyable for the kids. Mom & dad had to do a lot to keep them entertained! If you have small children and don’t do the thrill rides, I would recommend fast passing this ride.
No trip to Disney is complete without meeting the mouse! Our second fast pass of the day was meeting Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater. We were thankful we did because the standby line was 95 minutes! The kids loved meeting Mickey and he was sure to make each one feel special.
Being put behind schedule because of our long wait at It’s a Small World, we had to rush to our lunch reservation at Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen in Adventureland. We ended up being 20 minutes late, but they kindly honored our reservation. The decor of the restaurant is one of the nicest in the Magic Kingdom. I almost felt like I was on a Disney Cruise because the inside is themed like a cruise and I swear I felt soft wave-like rocking at one point. Daniel and I both had the ‘Tastes Like Chicken’ Because It Is, which is crispy fried chicken. We both enjoyed our meals.
Stay tuned for the rest of our day in our part II travel guide vlog at the Magic Kingdom Park.

About us: We are Daniel, Robyn, Ava, Rose, and Ella, and together we are The Go To Family. We love to travel! We also love food, exploring historical sites and, of course, doing loads of fun things together as a family. In my videos, you will see me and Robyn tackle every obstacle that traveling with kids throws at us. We do traveling almost exactly the same way as we did before having kids, it just takes a little bit more planning. But it’s even more fun and rewarding to be able to show them new cultures and live new experiences with them at the same time! Our mission is to inspire other Millennials to travel with kids.
We also really enjoy posting to Instagram, you can check out our channels here:
