Disney Bucket List: 25 Things to Do at Magic Kingdom
I want to share a few tips on planning your trip! Make sure to check out places like Airbnb for discount places to stay, in many cases, it’s cheaper than a hotel in the area, but don’t discount the themed hotels ( we loved Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort ) but be prepared to spend a bit more on them! Just to give you an idea I was peaking around and found an entire 4 bedroom home for only $79 night, an apartment right in the middle of downtown for $79 a night, and a tropical themed room for rent for $42 a night! Super cheap for the area!
Don’t forget to check out Get Away Today for their Disney discount packages (and also Universal ones as well!)
Destination Florida has some great discount packages for Disney and other places out in town as well!
Set up your Fast Passes
Before you even head to the park, download the Disney app and start choosing Fast Pass times. This way you will have rides reserved prior to arriving. If dining (seated dining, not grab and go) at the park, be sure to make reservations prior to arriving.
Collect character signatures
Keep your autograph books on hand, because your favorite Disney characters will be out and about signing books and taking photos.
Grab a Dole Whip
Disney is famous for this pineapple treat! Be sure to grab one and cool off in between rides. These are hard to find elsewhere, so you have to grab them while you are here! This is a must do item on the Disney Bucket List.
Visit Ariel in her Grotto
If you love The Little Mermaid, go visit Ariel in your grotto where you can take pictures with her!
Take flight with Peter Pan
Hop aboard the mini ships and set sail through the land of pirates and fairies with Peter Pan and friends.
Get the spooks at The Haunted Mansion
Ready to get scared? The Haunted Mansion is a spooky and yet gorgeous ride that takes you through the scariest house in Disney!
Feast on a turkey leg
Nom nom! The giant turkey legs are a tasty treat Disney is famous for! Grab one and start gnawing!
Catch the afternoon parade
Disney puts on a grand afternoon parade around 3 pm each day. Set down about 30 minutes early so you can get an up-close view!
Don’t forget the fireworks
The Magic Kingdom puts on a spectacular fireworks display at closing each eve. There really is no bad spot in the park to watch, so anywhere you camp out you should be able to get a view.
