As guests enter the Magic Kingdom and head towards Cinderella’s Castle and the Hub and the entrances to all of themed lands of the Magic Kingdom, they may be missing some fantastic experiences on Main Street, U.S.A. Even though there are no rides, there are a bevy of other experiences that guests need to make time for on their next trip to the Magic Kingdom. Here is our list of the top seven experiences while on Main Street, U.S.A!
1. The Chapeau
We love this shop located on the right-hand side of the Town Square! Guests can find any hat to fit their personality and can even have it embroidered with their name or to celebrate a special occasion. The theming of the shop is great and guests can even time travel into the past and listen in on the party line – just pick up the old-fashioned phone and you can hear the conversation!
2. Town Square Mickey and Tinkerbell
Guests can meet two Disney favorite characters at the Town Square Theatre! Calling the theatre home are Tinkerbell and a very special Mickey – one that actually talks to guests. Utilizing the technology in the MagicBands, Cast Members in the attraction can then relay that information to Mickey to be able to interact with guests. Depending on the time of the day, guests may be able to meet these characters with minimal wait times, so be sure to check the wait time indicator outside the theatre. We’ve had the best luck either first thing in the morning or later at night shortly before the park closes. These are interactions that you’ll never forget!
3. Dapper Dans
This is a fantastic entertainment opportunity on Main Street, U.S.A.! The Dapper Dans are a barbershop quartet who walk around and perform songs for the guests of Main Street, U.S.A. These entertainers certainly perform fantastically and we love the costumes that they wear – their performances are sporadic throughout the day, so always consult the Times Guide or the information in your My Disney Experience app!
4. The Confectionary
No trip into or out of the Magic Kingdom is complete without a stop at the Confectionary. We love watching the Cast Members make the delectable treats that are for sale inside of the shop. We also have to grab a treat whenever we are inside of the shop – be it a marshmallow rice treat covered with chocolate or just a packet of sour taffy – there is something for everybody’s tastebuds here!
