Insider Tips for the Magic
Kingdom at Disney World
The most magical of all places
where the outside world seems to disappear,
Disney Magic Kingdom is paradiseforever.
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.
enter at Main Street with a view of the Castle
straight ahead. Make your first stop at Disney
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 signthen put the autograph
by the picture of your child with the character.
You will find many of the characters at Mickeys
Toontown Fair during the day.
the SpectroMagic parade and Wishes fireworks,
I like to be on Main Street, but you need to
get your spot at least an hour ahead of time.
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.
The Country Bear Jamboree
is an amusing musical show for the small child
and gives everybody a chance to cool down. A
new show that originated at Tokyo Disneyland
opened in March and is already a big hit: Cinderellabration
at Disney Magic Kingdoms Castle Forecourt
stage. The show features Cinderellas coronation
day with singing and dancing. The show lasts
about 20 minutes and ends with fireworks.
