In addition to my Walt Disney World for Teens article I thought I would break it down into a park-by-park series. The Magic Kingdom is often that park seen by most as the one for families or small children. The Magic Kingdom has so much to offer for all ages.
Let’s start off on Main Street U.S.A. Main Street is home to all sorts of things that teens can enjoy. Going to the left after walking under the Walt Disney World Railroad station, there is the interactive game Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. This game allows you to go at your own pace and travel all around the park searching for clues to defeat the Disney Villains. Also on the left side of Main Street is the Emporium where the teen that likes to shop can buy anything and everything they want to remember their trip to Walt Disney World. Then on the right side of Main Street there is the Main Street Bakery which is a Starbucks location and I know many teens like to start their days off with a drink from there. Then last but not least for the teen on Main Street is the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor where you can get all types of ice cream flavors and sundaes.
Moving on to Tomorrowland, we start to get into the fun. A favorite of many is Space Mountain. This coaster ride is completely in the dark and should be a stop for all teens visiting the Magic Kingdom.
Continuing along around the park there is Fantasyland. In Fantasyland teens can visit the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for a fun ride through the dwarfs’ diamond mine. Also for the hungry teen they could stop at Gaston’s Tavern for cinnamon rolls and other treats. Gaston is a fun meet and greet for everyone; he usually meets just outside the Tavern.
Frontierland is another hot spot for teens looking for some thrill. Frontierland is home to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Spalsh Mountain. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a personal favorite of mine where you ride on a runaway mine train. Splash Mountain is based on the film “Song of the South” and if you decide to take the plunge, beware, you could get wet!
With all of these and more things to do in the Magic Kingdom teens are sure to find something to enjoy while in the park. Walt Disney World really does cater to everyone if you look around.
