Insider Tips for the Magic Kingdom at Disney World

The most magical of all places where the outside world seems to disappear, Disney's Magic Kingdom is paradise forever. This theme park is built in a wheel shape with the Cinderella Castle in the center and the 7 enchantedlands with rides and attractions laid out in spokes from the Castle.

Magic Kingdom at DisneyYou enter at Main Street with a view of the Castle straight ahead. Make your first stop at Disney's Magic Kingdom Guest Relations at City Hall just inside the park to pick up a 4” x 9” Times Guide & New Information card that contains weekly information for park hours, special hours, restaurants, height requirements, parade and fireworks times,show times, character greeting times, and locations for all.

Especially for small children: Disney Magic Kingdom autograph signing by the characters. I have found ones with Disney characters on the front for as little as $2.00. I can guarantee your children will want a book to have signed when they see all the other kids with them. Or if you are a scrap booker, you might want to bring colored note cards for the characters to sign—then put the autograph by the picture of your child with the character. You will find many of the characters at Mickey’s Toontown Fair during the day.

If other guests start to crowd into a space that you have been holding for a long time, let one of the Disney Magic Kingdom cast members know who is working crowd control; they are all trained in polite ways to ask people to find a more open spot.
