Disney Characters
Without the characters, it wouldn’t be Disney! Your kids will have lots of chances to get up close and personal with their fictional friends.

Share a Dream Come True Parade features giant Disney snow globes is a tribute to all those stories and characters that have touched our hearts down through the years.
Ariel’s Grotto gives kids a peek into Ariel’s colorful grotto surrounded by starfish, coral, and waterfalls.
Storytime with Belle at Fairytale Garden shares the telling of the classic “Beauty and the Beast” tale.

And when you need a few minutes to give those feet (and your mind) a rest, keep these relaxing ideas in mind:

Liberty Square Riverboat — an authentic 3-tiered paddleboat.
Main Street via either a horse car, omnibus, jitney, horseless carriage, or fire engine.
The Timekeeper takes you on a journey across the past, present, and future with Circle-Vision 360 film technology.
Tomorrowland Transit Authority transports you around Tomorrowland.
Tom Sawyer Island immerses you in the homespun world of Mark Twain.
Walt Disneyworld Railroad is the perfect way to see all that the Magic Kingdom has to offer.

If the troops are getting hungry, anything and everything you could possibly want can be found about the park. Try Tony’s Town Square (Italian), the Plaza Restaurant (sandwiches & burgers), Liberty Tree Tavern (Family-style dinners), Cinderella’s Royal Table (character dining), The Crystal Palace (buffet), plus 19 other venues where you can ‘recharge’ your battery!

As your day comes to a close, the nighttime fun is just beginning:

Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks: With a double dose of pixie dust Tinker Bell flies down from the highest spire of Cinderella Castle to lead off this spectacular nighttime extravaganza. Then, awesome fireworks synchronized to classic Disney music burst above Fantasyland in a wonderful world of color.
SpectroMagic Parade: It’s the next generation of nighttime parades as your favorite Disney characters light up with magical fiber-optic light and dance down Main Street, U.S.A., and John Debney’s magnificent score fills the air. There are enough memorable moments in the procession to brighten your dreams for many nights to come. The bedazzling butterflies with their wings aglow. Chernobog unfolding his wings with flickering ferocity. And Sorcerer Mickey working his magic over a crystal ball filled with a hundred tiny lightning bolts.

What else can we say about the “happiest” place on earth…except enjoy your visit!
