Have breakfast at the Magic Kingdom. You can enter the park early and enjoy incredible photo ops! The breakfast is wonderful and you feel as if you have the park to yourself! Our favorite Magic Kingdom breakfast is found at “Be Our Guest.” You can order and pay ahead of time and have your breakfast at your table within 5 minutes of arriving. Our biggest tip is for those who aren’t “big” breakfast eaters….order off the Kid’s menu! It’s superb!
To save on tickets and spending, if you plan on a 7 day stay, only buy a 5 day pass. On your travel day arriving at Disney, it is best not to plan on visiting the parks. Check-in is not guaranteed until after 3:00 pm, so this is a great day to spend by the pool or looking around the hotel. You should also plan on spending a day at the new Disney Springs or visiting other hotels (Art of Animation and Wilderness Lodge are must sees). Disney hotels offer loads of daytime activities and outdoor movies at night. All of Disney World is magical, so don’t feel that you are obligated to go to a park every day.
If you can’t find the time to make it to the Animal Kingdom Park, take a trip over to the Animal Kingdom Villas, Kidani Village. You’ll find a beautiful observation deck with outdoor fireplace. The food at Sanaa is outstanding and offers up-close encounters with Savannah animals and birds.
If you are looking for a fun place to eat at the Magic Kingdom, try Pinocchio’s Village Haus. While this is only a counter-service restaurant, the food is cheap; the flatbread is tasty; and the views cannot be beaten. Little ones will enjoy watching through the glass as park guests take a boat ride through It’s a Small World.
If you are traveling to Disney World with a large group, try the Nachos Rio Grande Challenge at Pecos Bill in the Magic Kingdom. This loaded batch of nachos will feed at least 8, and boy do you get the VIP treatment: a parade, served on a mini-covered wagon, unlimited drinks and nachos, everyone in your party gets a cowboy hat and badge, a certificate, and special service throughout the meal.
