Top 4 quiet places in the Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World is filled with music, screaming children, and sound effects that make the park an extremely noisy place. Escaping from that noise can be difficult, but there are a few places to find peace and quiet in the park. Here are four places in the Magic Kingdom to find some peace and quiet:

4) Inside The Main Street U.S.A. Train Station

Sitting at the very front of the park is the Main Street U.S.A. Train Station. Guests don’t actually queue themselves inside the train station when they are waiting for the next train, so for the most part the station is pretty quiet. Only when a train passes through will you see an influx of people walking through the building. What is nice about this location is that it is completely covered, which is nice when your trying to escape the blistering heat of central Florida. There is a bench, or two, as well if you intend on taking a longer break.

3) Rocking Chairs On Tom Sawyer’s Island

Many guests don’t take the time to enjoy Tom Sawyer’s Island, but if you need a break from the over stimulation of the rest of the park then Tom Sawyer’s Island is the perfect place for you. If you are lucky and can find a rocking chair on the island then I highly recommend taking a nice long break. The rocking chairs overlook the Rivers of America, and are covered by shade for most of the day making this the ideal spot to enjoy some peace and quiet. Tom Sawyer’s Island is not crowded, especially compared to the rest of the park, so it is a great place to take a break from the rest of the Magic Kingdom.

2) Path Connecting Space Mountain to the Storybook Circus

Very few people venture back behind the Tomorrowland Speedway, but this small pathway is a hidden gem of the Magic Kingdom. The pathway connecting Space Mountain to the Storybook Circus is almost always deserted. This pathway is also no longer a smoking section, so it makes it an even better place to take a long break with your family as you watch the Walt Disney World Railroad travel by. Unfortunately all of the grass is fenced off because this quiet little area would be great for a picnic for guests who may have packed a lunch.

1) The Liberty Belle

Once the Liberty Belle leaves the station, after horn blows, and the steam engine starts churning you can tune out the rest of the Magic Kingdom. As the Liberty Belle turns past Big Thunder Mountain Railroad you feel like you’ve left the Magic Kingdom in a sense because only trees surround you. There are sections of Rivers of America that feel completely isolated, and that can be nice when you need a break. The white noise from the Liberty Belle makes it a great place to escape the rest of the Magic Kingdom’s noise.
