My childhood memories of Disney World focus
on the rides I loved so much. Visiting Magic Kingdom as an adult with my family, however,
was a very different experience. We went on some rides, but they weren’t the main event.
Despite that, we weren’t bored for a minute. Here are some Magic Kingdom highlights that
don’t involve rides. We spent hours searching for princesses and other characters. Some
of which my kids had never even heard of. But for each one, they patiently stood in
line, got an autograph, a photo and a hug. And if you’re kids are really character obsessed,
you can have meals with your favorite or get a princess make over. For kids old enough
to stay out late, the night time electrical parade is awe inspiring. We got there early
to stake out a prime curb side spot. The music and lights are just fantastic, and of course,
just being out so late is a huge treat for the little ones. Finally, don’t forget to
leave time for your kids to just soak it all in. Seeing Cinderella’s castle, experiencing
the many performances and parades throughout the day and just people watching can be an
amazing experience for kids. So find somewhere to sit and spend a few minutes just enjoying
being together. And don’t be surprised if that’s more than enough to fill your day.
