Mad Tea Party at Magic Kingdom

Mad Tea Party is one of those attractions that guests will either love to ride or prefer to watch on the sidelines. I’ll be the first to admit that I love to ride in some instances and love to watch in others.

If my son and niece want to take a spin, I’m probably outside watching. They like to spin the interior steering wheel as fast as possible, resulting in a true gettin’ dizzy experience.

As far as riding the teacups without using the interior spinner, the ride is relatively mild and easily doable for most.

Additionally, there is no height requirement to ride Mad Tea Party.

Need to Know: Mad Tea Party is typically pretty easy to experience. The attraction’s line wraps around one side of the exterior. So you should be able to see how many guests are ahead of you when you enter the queue.

Best Time to Ride: This attraction rarely sees long waits. You know you picked a busy day at Magic Kingdom if there is a long line.

Additionally, the teacups are a pretty attraction to experience in the evening. During the seasonal parties, the ride sometimes has a memorable layover.

Know Your Disney Rules When Riding With Children: Any child under the age of seven or younger must be accompanied by an adult fourteen years or older.
