For the most relaxed experience, visit early in the season or during week days. Except for the week of Christmas, we always have fewer visitors during the week than on weekends. Historically, Saturday nights in December (prior to Christmas) are our busiest nights of the season.

On most nights there’s no line at all to visit Santa’s Magical Kingdom. Please be aware that for safety reasons, vehicles cannot be permitted to back up on I-44. On extremely rare occasions, cars may be temporarily prevented from getting in line during certain times. If that occurs, you’ll have to come back later that evening or on a different night.

Thank you for understanding that the safety of everyone on the road must take priority!
