Experiences Worth Repeating At Disney World’s Magic Kingdom – Part 1
As a person who has experienced the Disney parks multiple times, I often get asked if I ever get tired of visiting the Magic Kingdom. My answer is always, “No way! I’m ready to go again right now!” Here are some of the experiences that I love and will continue to visit again and again.
Riding the Ferry In
Riding the fast (and air-conditioned!) monorail is nice, but doesn’t quite offer that same magical feeling as taking a ferryboat ride across the Seven Seas Lagoon and watching the distant Cinderella Castle come closer in your view. The kids will be so excited. If the weather is nice or if you leave at park closing, opt for the ferry; you won’t regret it.
Arriving at Rope Drop
It used to be that arriving at park opening meant watching a little show at the gate before entering. Present day, they allow you to walk down Main Street, U.S.A. even earlier than before so you can soak up some of the charm and maybe grab a coffee from Starbucks until it’s officially opening time, when a few familiar characters take the stage in front of Cinderella Castle and “drop the rope”, so to speak.
Stopping to Enjoy the Ambiance
It’s tempting to rush around Magic Kingdom trying to get through every single item on your wishlist. However, it’s good to slow down once in awhile and really take it all in. Watch a parade or two, or catch a show that springs up along your path. Do some people-watching. Sing along to the background tunes. Smell all the amazing smells. Whatever you do, don’t pass up the chance to fully enjoy your time in the most magical place on earth.
Eating Breakfast with Winnie and Friends at The Crystal Palace
It’s a bit expensive as far as breakfast buffets go, but nonetheless an experience you won’t want to miss. As you sit in this beautifully decorated restaurant enjoying delicious menu items such as freshly baked pastries, made-to-order omelettes, seasonal fruit, and breakfast meats and potatoes, you get to meet characters from Winnie the Pooh as they visit each table. Don’t forget to bring your autograph book and your camera!
As you can see, the Magic Kingdom has no shortage of experiences worth revisiting year after year. With time, you’ll find out which of them—whether they’re listed here or not—are even more special to you.
