A Disney vacation is a magical experience with attractions and shows unlike anywhere else in the world. However, since the average guest takes about 20,000 steps per day, your feet and body are bound to get tired!
Although you could trek back to your hotel, that could be a a very long way to travel especially if you plan to return to the park later.
Here are six places you can rest in Magic Kingdom divided into two categories: resting spots and attractions.
6. Columbia Harbour House
Columbia Harbour House offers excellent dining options, but they also have a secluded second floor that few guests know about. This usually empty seating area overlooks the path between Fantasyland and Liberty Square. This area is also air-conditioned, which can be a real benefit on the very hot days in Central Florida.
5. Pathway From Tomorrowland to Storybook Circus
Between Space Mountain and Tomorrowland Speedway lies a secluded area that might be the least crowded in all of Magic Kingdom. Though it can sometimes be a little noisy from the Speedway cars, this is a great area to visit if you just need some time away from the crowds. Non-smokers and asthmatics beware: there is a smoker’s section in this area.
4. Baby Care Center
Although it might be a little weird for you to go hang out in the baby center without a baby or young child, if you have either in your traveling party, this is a great place to take a break. With microwaves, air conditioning, and comfy seating areas, you can eat your lunch, grab a snack, or just take a nap.
Magic Kingdom’s Baby Center is conveniently, and almost secretly, placed on the side of Crystal Palace.
3. Carousel of Progress
Although I highly recommend visiting The Carousel of Progress to enjoy the show, this can be a great place to take a break too. With a run-time of 20 minutes in a very dark theater and pleasant sound and music, you’re bound to come out refreshed. The only downside is that the chairs are not the most comfortable in the Kingdom.
2. Hall of Presidents
This is another show you must see, but can also be good for a rest too. This show runs 23 minutes and has very comfortable chairs. It may be a little louder than the Carousel of Progress, but a great place for a rest nonetheless.
1. Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
The TTA PeopleMover is an outdoor, futuristic transportation system on a shaded track over Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland. Even on very hot days, the breeze feels great which makes this our last great place for a little R&R. The ride runs about 10 minutes, but the seats can be a little uncomfortable. If the attraction isn’t busy, you might be able to request that you stay on the train for more than one go around – and some extra R&R time..
Do you find the PeopleMover relaxing?
