When it comes to entertainment, the Magic Kingdom’s centerpiece events are their fireworks show and parades. These are large scale productions that require hundreds of cast members on stage and off to put on. And man does it show. The downside of that is that showings are very limited, so if you want to catch one, you’re going to have to plan a little bit. You can’t just stroll up and wait for the next show. In this guide, we’ll cover all the different Magic Kingdom fireworks show and parades that you need to know about!

Liberty Square is a land that is distinctively American. With architectural theming from the Colonial era of America, this land in the Magic Kingdom is probably the most relatable to its American guests. Within these Colonial-era designs, you’ll find varying motifs that represent different colonial outposts. We’ve seen things that represent to us places from Boston down to Georgia. We’re not an expert here; we just use our eyes to see things we recognize. You may find something we’ve never noticed. But all of it is distinctly Colonial. We cover all of this and more here in our guide to Liberty Square at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
As you pass underneath the Walt Disney World Railroad Station and enter the Magic Kingdom, you are funneled through Main Street U.S.A. Meant to bring back a sense of early 1900s Americana, you’ll stroll through a town square setting, complete with a flag pole, train station, and ice cream parlor, among other things. Now, sitting behind all of the turn-of-the-century facades are shops…lots of them. The visual assault of spending starts immediately. But more on that in a bit. For now, this is our guide to Main Street, U.S.A at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom!
Earlier this evening, we posted about Disney World allowing guests to rebook select experiences. Well, now we know when they are going to let guests start making dining reservations for when the parks reopen. That would be tomorrow, June 30th. However, just like with booking experiences, there is a huge exception to this. Read on to hear more.
One of the fun things you can do at Disney World is to book an “experience.” These can take unique forms like a backstage tour or in-park experience like building a lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop. When Disney World closed down the parks and started implementing their new reopening procedures, they canceled everyone’s reservations for dining and experiences. Today we got news on when guests will be able to rebook select Disney World experiences. We’ve got a breakdown of it all below!
As we highlighted in our post on Disney reopening procedures, they are going to limit attendance in the parks for the remainder of 2020 and likely parts of 2021. To do this, they have built what is known as the Disney Park Pass System. It is a system that reserves your ability to enter the park. This post will serve as a guide to the Disney Park Pass System. We’ll cover how you use the system to make a reservation, tips, tricks, and some issues we experienced when booking our park passes.
Well, the news cycle appears to be in high gear for Disney World’s reopening. Last night we got news bout Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Food & Wine Festival. Today Disney World introduced the new Disney Park Pass System. We’ve known for a while that Disney World would require guests to make a reservation for entry into a theme park. This is above and beyond buying your actual admission ticket. Now we have some more details. However, the system isn’t live quite yet. In this post, we’ll cover when you can start making reservations, what you should do before trying to reserve access and more.
This evening Disney World finally gave us some answers to what will be happening with their fall seasonal event line up. The announcement was made via a post on Disney Parks Blog. Specifically, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. As you can read in the title to this post, Disney World has decided to cancel Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. The Epcot Food and Wine Festival will go on but in a modified format. We’ll talk a little about each of these items below.
Frontierland represents a step back to the old west. It’s a wild place where bank robbers, runaway trains, and every lawless person in the country roams. Here in our Guide to Frontierland at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, we’ll review the good, the bad, and the ugly of this great western themed land. The guide covers the various attractions, food, shops, and more that you can find.
I hope you enjoyed our Barenaked Ladies reference in the title. I think that song has lyrics that, in some way, reference the relationship of Disney World and its guests. Mostly the opening stanza. If you aren’t familiar with it, the song starts like this:
It’s been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side
and said I’m angry
Five days since you laughed at me saying
Get that together come back and see me
Maybe I’m reading too much into it. I do find it similar, though. I think Disney World fans are feeling a wide array of emotions about the park reopening now. Laughing and angry may be just two of them, but it probably covers the range of emotions.
