How to Have a Fabulous Day at Disney's Magic Kingdom in 10 Easy Steps


9. Shopping

Souvenir shopping is a big part of the Disney experience.  Shops abound throughout the park.  However, plan your shopping for AFTER you’ve done all or most of your touring, or better yet, plan more than one Magic Kingdom day for your trip.  *Secret tip: The shops on Main Street USA stay open after official closing. 

10. Kiss Goodnight

Castle Night

This is a tip most guests are unaware of.  About 30-45 minutes after official closing time, there is a very brief “show” from Cinderella Castle.  The Castle is drenched in a rainbow of changing colors.  It's truly magical to stand there for a few quiet moments as Mickey Mouse wishes you a good evening.  It’s Disney’s way of politely asking you to leave the park, LOL!

A little preparation and planning will go a long way towards having your dream day at Magic Kingdom park.
