Spots to Relax While Visiting the Magic Kingdom
It’s always exciting to visit the Magic Kingdom with so much to see and do! However, sometimes you need to balance all the attractions with some down time. If you’re looking for a more relaxing spot in the midst of the Magic Kingdom, here are a few places where you can rest.
The grassy area in front of Cinderella Castle is a fan favorite spot to sit and simply enjoy the ambiance. You can even bring some food or treats to enjoy a little picnic! It’s also a good spot for little kids to let their wiggles out.
This quick service location is only in operation during busy seasons or during fireworks dessert parties. However, during the daytime, the tables and chairs are often available. Not only are they covered, so you have shade, but there are fans that give a light breeze.
Main Street, U.S.A. always seems to be bustling, but if you make a right after Uptown Jewelers, you’ll come across a quaint little side street. This is Center Street. You’ll find a few tables and chairs and a small inlet with shade in this quiet area.
Next to Pete’s Silly Sideshow
To the right of Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus, you’ll find a covered area with some seats and picnic tables. There are even outlets for you to charge your devices. This area is so tucked away that it is often empty here.
Merchants of Venus
This former store in Tomorrowland was recently converted into a seating area. It’s a good spot to cool off or enjoy ice cream or a float from Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies, which is right next door. You will also find FuelRod stations here to charge your phone.
Baby Care Center
As with any of the Walt Disney World theme parks, the Magic Kingdom has a baby care center. Located near The Crystal Palace, the baby care center has diaper changing and nursing areas as well as seating areas with televisions. It can be a good place to take young children for a break from the crowds.
Honorable Mention: Magic Kingdom Resorts
There are a few resorts that are a short distance from the Magic Kingdom if you need a little respite. Take the monorail over to the visit the lobbies or lounges at the Contemporary, Polynesian, or Grand Floridian. Or take the ferry to visit Wilderness Lodge.
Finding quieter spots in the Magic Kingdom can make for a much more relaxing and enjoyable theme park day!
