Experiences Worth Repeating At Disney World’s Magic Kingdom – Part 2
As a person that 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.
No visit to the Magic Kingdom is complete without meeting your special pal himself, Mickey Mouse. Kids and grownups alike tend to remember their first Mickey encounter forever, so be sure to make time for it. We recommend meeting him backstage at the Town Square Theater, where he’ll actually chat with you a little. Be sure to take lots of pictures — I still have all of mine from past years!
Viewing Mickey’s PhilharMagic
Take a break from the heat and step inside the Fantasyland Concert Hall for a viewing of Mickey’s PhilharMagic, a 3D fantasy adventure that follows Donald Duck as he travels through a dream world of classic songs from Disney animated films such as Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and more.
Riding Classic Rides
While there’s something to be said for enjoying the latest attractions, a large part of Magic Kingdom’s charm comes from some of its oldest. For decades, rides such as It’s a Small World, Peter Pan’s Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Haunted Mansion have kept guests coming back for more, and they show no sign of stopping. My family and I enjoy all of these attractions and go on them every time we visit Magic Kingdom!
Dining at “Be Our Guest”
Ever wondered what about that “gray stuff” Lumiere asks Belle to try? You can try it for yourself—along with many other French-inspired dishes—at Be Our Guest, located in the Beast’s enchanted castle. Whether you choose to dine in the Grand Ballroom, the West Wing, or the Castle Gallery, (I have been in all three) and whether you opt for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, each meal in this restaurant is a storybook experience worth revisiting time and time again. Dinner is extremely hard to book but can be done 180 days before your reservation so put that date on your calendar! Breakfast and lunch are a bit easier to get reservations but get that done before going to the parks.
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.
Stay tuned for more in Part 3 of this series.
