2022 Magic Kingdom for Adults the Complete Guide

Walt Disney World for Adults: Magic Kingdom Edition!

The Magic Kingdom is thought to be the most magical place on earth, especially for kids. No need to worry. This place is just as magical for adults who love the charm Walt Disney World is known to have.

As a grown-up going to the Magic Kingdom, all you have to do is unleash your freedom and dive in.

Disney’s Magic Kingdom is For Adults Too!

This park is a wonderful starter for those interested in the classic Disney appeal. It gives a good variety of thrilling attractions on the more milder side.

You’re in the thick of theme park entertainment with all the shows, parades, and fireworks in one place.

I’m usually alone in my solo theme park adventures, but on occasion you may find me doing Disney with my friends the adult way!

Try not to think about the massive number of crying kids, annoying teens, and cranky toddlers. Let not the music of adolescent beings prohibit your trip to the Magic Kingdom theme park.

This venture you have chosen can be super fun.

…to the degree you have no imaginative restrictions or boundaries.

Buy all your Disney apparel without anyone (like a parental-figure) telling you “no you can’t have that,” or “it’s not in the budget!”

This could be a good or bad thing depending on if your personality allows for self-control.

What makes the Magic Kingdom a park for grown-ups?

It’s the wonderful magic that greets you on Main Street U.S.A.

I like to remember my first visits which are triggered by the enchanted sites and sugary smells along the main road.

For the occasional theme park goer, the Magic Kingdom is a manageable and easy park to navigate.

The Magic Kingdom is divided into six lands:

  • Main Street U.S.A.
  • Tomorrowland
  • Fantasyland
  • Frontierland
  • Liberty Square
  • Adventureland

The lands are centered around the hub, which is Cinderella Castle. This is especially important to note when planning and mapping out your trip.

What to Expect on Your Trip to Walt Disney World

When it comes to experiencing the attractions, if you’re a thrill ride junkie, then this may not be the park for you.

If you’re an adult who likes to mix up moderate thrills with more relaxing moments, then you’re in the right place.

Start your trip off by walking through the shops of Main Street U.S.A.

The next adult thing to do is to grab the best Starbucks drink and find a nice table outside Casey’s Corner overlooking the castle.

While you’re in your Magic Kingdom daze, go over your itinerary for that day and take a few pictures to set off your trip.

10 Easy Tips for Adults Going to the Magic Kingdom

Now that you know what to expect, let’s go over a few of my favorite tips and tricks for the Magic Kingdom!

Disney Magic Kingdom Boat Ride to Tom Sawyer’s Island Frontierland

1. Get to the park before it opens

I mention this tip in almost every post because it is very important. Especially if you’re coming to any of the central Florida theme parks.

Disney Magic Kingdom Walking onto the Ferry Boat. Keep reading to learn about Magic Kingdom for adults the Disney grown up way.
Ferry Boat that goes to the Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom is the busiest theme park in the world so be sure to get there before to the gates open.

Remember: Try to arrive an hour and a half before the park opens.

This may seem radical, but if you’re parking you have to take into consideration:

  • Finding a parking space.
  • Getting on the tram to the transportation ticket center.
  • Taking the monorail or boat over to the Magic Kingdom gates. There can be a very long line to get on the monorail or the boat.
  • Getting through the ticket turnstiles. This may take a while due to new security safety measures of having your bags checked.

2. Be sure to check out the Magic Kingdom crowd calendar

The calendar gives you an estimation of peak times at the Magic Kingdom throughout the year.

Beware, its times can change and is not always 100% accurate, but it gives you a general idea of the park’s busyness.

Plus, the Magic Kingdom is the most popular theme park in world!

What are the Best Times to Visit the Magic Kingdom?

  • January
  • February
  • April
  • November
Disney crowd calendar. Best time to go to Disney World.

These months are closely followed by May, September, and October as still pretty decent visiting times.

3. Plan out your day using the Disney Genie+ system

It’s sad to say, but we have officially left the FastPass era and have entered into the world of Disney Genie and Lightning Lane.

As per Disney, Genie is the brand new complimentary and convenient new digital service within the My Disney Experience app specially designed to help create your perfect Disney day.

So you can basically view the Disney Genie as your own personal travel assistant. It will give you the park hours for the park you have chosen for the day, suggested things to do, and a so much more!

This is an absolute MUST DO tip for any trip at ANY of the Walt Disney World theme parks.

4. Download the Walt Disney World park app and purchase tickets online

The Disney app allows you to make your Disney Park reservations before your visit. You can check out your PhotoPass pictures and view wait times while you’re in the park. The app will also allow you to book dining arrangements within the app.

BIG Thunder Mountain Railroad

Tickets are also cheaper when you purchase them online.

Hipster Power Tip: You will want to have this app on hand while you’re at the park to keep track of wait times. The app is about 80% accurate when it comes to the wait times.

Because the flow of traffic is constantly moving, the wait times may not be up-to-date by the minute.

5. Dress comfy but stylish

Make sure you have a good pair of sneakers, a light-weight t-shirt, shorts, and a hat to block the Florida sun. You’ll want to remain stylish.

After all, we are ThemeParkHipsters! Plus, you want your pictures to be memorable.

6. Have water on hand

The must bring item is water. The Florida heat and humidity is hard to describe to out of town guests who are use to milder temperatures.

The Florida summer heat and sometimes the early fall heat can affect someone who’s not used to it.

Hipster Power Tip: Have water, sunscreen, glasses, a hat, a small umbrella, and a frosty towel in your theme park backpack.

7. Don’t be afraid to ask a Cast Member for help

Disney Cast Members are some of the best people who are around to help. They like to service each guest the Disney way.

In the mist of helping, they sometimes do what’s called “plussing” your day. Which adds more Disney magic to your day than you paid for.

Hipster Power Tip: Never be afraid to ask a Cast Member for help. You never know what you may learn or receive when asking.

8. Ride a top attraction during a parade or fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom

This is a tip I used to do when I was a teenager because I was anti-parades and anti-shows.

If you are the same type a person, then this is the ideal time to ride a high-priority attraction.

9. Go to the Magic Kingdom during the weekday

Tuesdays and Wednesdays tend to be the quieter and less crowded days at the Magic Kingdom.

10. Book a character meal in advance at the Magic Kingdom

The Crystal Palace and Cinderella’s Royal Table offer special dining with Disney characters. These dining experiences book up quickly.

If this is something you would like to do on your adult day at the Magic Kingdom, then definitely book in advance.

First of all, you get a chance to revel in the magical mind of Walt Disney himself as you experience firsthand, his thoughts and dreams.

You can also hop on Disney’s famous rides such:

  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Splash Mountain
  • Space Mountain

While you’re there, enjoy throwback attractions like the Jungle Cruise, the Enchanted Tiki Room, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Haunted Mansion, and Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress.

Another thing adults can do in Disney World is have a great cocktail. What better way to enjoy some of the amazing attractions at the Magic Kingdom than with an adult beverage.

Events and Parties at the Magic Kingdom

On your adult trip to Disney, you should think about visiting one of the special events that take place after hours inside the park.

It’s your opportunity to be able to experience more attractions without the crazy lines that happen during the day. Plus, these events are perfect for you if this is going to be your first solo trip.

They’re very organized with lots of entertainment to keep you busy. Also, many of the families with smaller kids don’t make it to the end of the night.

This makes the park quite lovely and peaceful when the crowd gets low.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

The Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is an annual event that started in 1995 as a single celebration but with time and given its popularity it expanded into a long seasonal event.

It’s Disney’s way of celebrating Halloween without the gore that you may find at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.

This personally my favorite after hours event to visit at the Magic Kingdom since you get LOTS of free candy and you get to meet some rare Disney characters.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party features special shows including Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, grand fireworks, over the top dance parties, photo ops with Disney characters as well a handful of other unique activities.

Is the Magic Kingdom fun for adults?

Absolutely, yes!

Disney’s Magic Kingdom is a safe place for both adults and children. It allows everyone to let go and enjoy their imagination.

When going as adults you can do all the rides and you can buy all the toys without having to ask anyone.

We’re all children at heart who have to “adult “to stay within the norms.

What’s the Magic Kingdom itinerary for adults?

Now that we have the basics covered, let’s go through how to break down your day.

Tom Sawyer Island at Magic Kingdom

Hipster Power Tip: Tom Sawyer Island is a cool place for adults to hang out and get away from the noisiness of the Magic Kingdom.

Magic Kingdom Morning Itinerary for Adults

  • Before you get to the Magic Kingdom purchase your tickets, book your park reservation, and download the park map.
  • Have your Disney Genie+/Lightning Lane reservations booked.
  • Arrive at the gates prior to the parking opening and head down Main Street U.S.A.
  • Once you’ve taken in Cinderella Castle go left and head towards Adventureland.
  • This is where your attraction adventure will begin. Once you’re there, hike up the Swiss Family Treehouse. The tree house provides amazing views of the Magic Kingdom.
  • Join other park goers on the Jungle Cruise and listen as the skipper enthusiastically tells stories that echo on the rivers of the jungle.
  • Now it’s time to head on another voyage to find Captain Jack Sparrow and the Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • Once you’ve escaped the treacherous boat ride grab a Dole Whip. If anybody knows the Disney culture, then you know you must have a Dole Whip on any trip to the Magic Kingdom. If you don’t care for pineapples they do offer alternatives.
  • After your refreshments, head over to Frontierland and hop on Splash Mountain. During Splash Mountain, you will go on an adventure with Br’er Rabbit as he avoids Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear.

If getting wet is not an adult thing for you to do, then skip it and ride the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. This is a classic, simple, fun ride reminding you of childhood. It’s enjoyable both alone or when you’re there with people who love screaming on rides as much as you do.

Magic Kingdom Afternoon Itinerary for Adults

  • Next, take a break and explore the fabulous Tom Sawyer Island. You have to take a mini boat over to the island. It’s only a three-minute ride at the most.
  • On the secluded island you will see Liberty Square from different viewpoints. There are also many caves to discover and it’s a location to take a break from the hot weather.
  • Once you have enjoyed your time at Tom Sawyer Island ride the Haunted Mansion. This is a Walt Disney World classic ride and it has so much rich history and storytelling.
  • After dancing with the happy haunts, take a break and have lunch.
  • I prefer Liberty Tree Tavern, but you can book a character dining RSVP at the Crystal Palace. It’s a nice adult thing to do and it is a lot of fun if you love character meet and greets.
  • After lunch, head over to Fantasyland and ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It’s a ride that’s not a high-level, out of your mind roller coaster. It’s more of a beginner’s type of roller coaster, but it’s still pretty exciting.
  • Ride Space Mountain. Space Mountain is one of the staple and signature attractions in the Magic Kingdom. The Genie+ booking usually fills up quickly.
  • Go on the Carousel of Progress. It’s not a thrilling ride. It’s dated, but it’s such a classic Disney attraction that I say this is one of my top adult must do attractions.

Remember: This is not anything out of the ordinary; however, the story-line and what Walt Disney was trying to convey on this ride is priceless.

Hipster Power Tip: Be sure to book your Genie+ Reservations for Space Mountain before coming to the park for this attraction.

My favorite thing to do when I want to escape the crowd is to hitch a ride over to Tom Sawyer’s Island and find a quiet seat. I also like to sit in the front area of Liberty Square next to the entrance and people watch.
