The Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort is the most popular and most attended theme park in the world, and that is a fact that I don’t think anyone will find hard to believe the moment you walk through the gates. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of people in the park, but my favorite way to beat the crowds and enjoy a quiet(er) time in the most magical place, is to get there EARLY.
There is something so magical and surreal about getting a coffee on Main Street, USA to kick off your morning. I’m lucky in that I get the opportunity to visit the parks quite often, so I don’t feel the need to rush off to the attractions. My favorite instead is having a leisurely stroll with a drink in hand, watching all of the people walk in and see the castle for the first time, and just feeling the magic of the beginning of a new day in the Magic Kingdom. Plus, it’s one of the shortest lines you’ll see at Starbucks all day.
I know its hard to be a morning person sometimes, and I don’t always have the best track record at making it out of bed before 9 (ask Faison and Chelsea), but the quiet magic of an MK morning is always worth it.
