5 Best Rides in Fantasyland

If there are five rides in Fantasyland that you prioritize, it should be:

  1. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. This is the newest rollercoaster experience in Magic Kingdom and it is one of the best! The theming from the queue to the ride itself are spot on and you will feel like you are part of the fairytale.
Magic Tea Cups

2. Mad Tea Party. If you want to see joy on your child’s face, take them on the Tea Cups. These spinning discs are a favorite because you get to decide just how much you spin.

3. It’s a Small World. One of the most iconic rides at Disney World, this ride is as much about the artistic beauty as it is about the music. You will be singing “It’s a Small World After All” all day long.

Under The Sea Journey of the Little Mermaid Ride

4. Journey of the Little Mermaid. Those fans of The Little Mermaid will LOVE going through the story and hearing all the songs.

Barnstormer Magic Kingdom

5. Barnstormer. Another great roller coaster, this one is tame, but full of quick turns and small drops. It makes a great ride for those who are hesitant to ride other roller coasters at Disney.

Magic Kingdom Welcome Show at Cinderella Castle

Fantasyland Tips

Because of how crowded Fantasyland can get, you will want to make sure that you plan your visit to this area early in the day.

The best plan is to get there early enough to see the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show at Cinderella Castle

This way you will be closest to Fantasyland when the rest of the park opens!

Fantasyland at Disney World is quite possibly the most popular section of Magic Kingdom.

Rides like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Peter Pan’s Flight seem to be the most popular and have the longest lines.

Either purchase Genie+ to get Lightning Lane access or plan to hit these as soon as you arrive to the park.
