The Ultimate Guide To Magic Kingdom For Rookies

Haunted Mansion Doom Buggies

5. Do the Dark Rides

The Magic Kingdom has the absolute best Disney dark rides. From The Haunted Mansion to Pirates of the Caribbean, to Small World, to even Winnie the Pooh, these rides can take you out of reality and into the realms of your favorite films. They are so immersive through their use of lights, color, smell, and special effects, you’ll certainly believe you’ve stepped into another world. Whether you want to sail the high seas with Captain Jack, bounce through the woods with Tigger, fly with Peter Pan, or socialize with 999 Happy Haunts, The Magic Kingdom is the place to do it all.

6. Sensational Shopping Spree

Of course, we can’t leave The Magic Kingdom without taking a piece of the magic home with us. There are dozens of places to shop till you drop from being loaded down with magnificent Disney merch. Find yourself some Haunted Mansion home decor from Memento Mori, some inspiring artwork from The Art of Disney, or just take home a tee shirt and a plush of your favorite Disney pal from The Emporium. Whatever your choice, it’s always great to grab yourself a slice of Disney to light up your home away from the parks.

7. Take In A Show

There’s always time to sit back, relax, and watch one of the many magical performances at the park. Whether live or with audio-animatronic performers, the shows of The Magic Kingdom will have you on the edge of your seat and even singing along with the songs you know by heart. Already seen the castle show? Don’t worry, you can still go to the Frontierland Hoedown, the Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor, and Mickey’s Philharmagic to find your entertainment. Get your spots and seats soon, you don’t want to skip these shows.
