15 Things You Can't Miss At Disney World's Magic Kingdom

Mickey Mouse _ Town Square Theater

11. Character Greetings – Magic Kingdom Park

Speaking of Buzz, you can’t leave Magic Kingdom Park without meeting a Disney character. With the My Disney Experience app you can find the likes of Buzz, Mickey and even Gaston at his very own tavern in Fantasyland - and no one greets like Gaston!

12. Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade – Main Street, U.S.A. & Central Plaza

Be sure to return to Main Street or Cinderella Castle later in the day, so that you can experience this whirlwind of intricately-designed floats, color, characters and original Disney music. There’s no better way to enjoy some sing-along fun, so “forget about your worries” and just “let it go”!

13. Emporium – Main Street, U.S.A.

Before you even entertain the thought of leaving, check out Emporium – the largest store in the park that's so big it could almost be a land in its own right! Make sure you purchase a MagicBand (or pick up your free one if you’re a Disney Resort Hotel guest), and use it to make your purchases.

14. The Park After Dark – Magic Kingdom Park

Now it’s time to see the park after dark. Do of course return to your Disney Resort Hotel for a powernap (not the Sleeping Beauty kind), but once you’re refreshed, come back and see Magic Kingdom Park in all its sparkling glory – it’s like “a whole new world”…

15. Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After – Cinderella Castle

Once you’ve enjoyed certain attractions at night, it’s time to celebrate the end of your Magic Kingdom Park adventure. Make yourself present at Cinderella Castle with time to spare, as you’ll need to find a comfortable spot so that you can enjoy these heart-warming shows.

You should always check the park’s Times Guide or the My Disney Experience app for schedules and the hours of availability for attractions. Otherwise, “everything the light touches” is yours to explore, and when night falls, so are the “shadowy places”!
