Little ones at Magic Kingdom - Main Street
The wonderful thing about all the Disney Parks is that there is ‘something for everyone’ and Magic Kingdom is especially wonderful for younger children. From the moment you park the car (don’t forget to take a note of which car park you’re in! ) and climb aboard the tram – which in itself is fun for little ones - then you arrive at the ticketing center and have to decide whether to get the monorail or the ferry across the seven seas lagoon. Whichever you decide on it’s good to exit using the other – just so you don’t miss out!
Once you enter the park and start to walk up main street your eye is automatically drawn to Cinderella’s Castle but don’t be into much of a hurry there are lots of things to do and see before you get as far as the castle. For a start as you enter the park you walk through a tunnel and right above you is the Disney World Railroad, most little kids are fascinated by trains and the chance to ride on a steam train shouldn’t be missed. You can either do a circuit of the park which takes about 15 – 20 minutes or use the train as transport to either Frontierland or Mickey’s Toontown Fair. If you’ve arrived early then why not stop for coffee and a pastry or muffin at the Main Street Bakery – or grab a hair cut at the Barbers or if you’re lucky enough to be spending your birthday in Magic Kingdom, drop into City Hall and you’ll be given a special Birthday Button which will get you lots of special attention all day!
Little ones love having their photos taken with the characters and if you get them an autograph book and a chunky marker (easier for the characters to hold) then they can get an autograph and later stick in the photos – which makes a lovely souvenir of their trip. Don’t forget to write their name and address in the book just in case it gets lost.
You will also find Balloon sellers in Main Street – we always used to tie a helium balloon to our stroller – it makes it much easier to spot when you come off a ride or out of a show!
Disney photographers are also located in Main Street and they do some fabulous special effects with their photos which always made them a must do for our family.
So you’ve got as far as Cinderella’s castle now where…. Adventureland?
