    Opened in 1971, this is the first park built at the Disney World resort. The park opened with 23 attractions. Only 3 were unique to the park, the rest were copies of Disneyland attractions.

    The parades are great. Get a viewing spot early (at least 45 to 60 minutes before start) though. Respect the staff. Can't be easy managing that many people (including all the crazy ones) daily.

    If you're leaving at the same time as everyone else, cut through the emporium on your right-hand side. You can get the whole way down Main Street USA with less crowds and air-con. #win

    Best seat in the house for the 3pm parade is at Guest Services near the front gate. Practically empty and perfect for photos. It's where the parade begins. But get there early just in case.

    The Silhouette artists on the right hand side as you head to the castle are real artists and provide a really personal and not expensive souvenier!

    Walk through the shops for a great finish to the day. Fun Fact: The building levels are all built at various heights to give the illusion of tall buildings. Ex. 10 ft, 8 ft, 6 ft, 4 ft.

    Go halfway down Main Street and turn right on Center Street. Listen closely to the 2nd floor windows and you'll hear music lessons taking place.

    If you want to eat anywhere in the magic kingdom they take reservations up to 6 months in advance. And if you want to eat in the castle... well good luck

    At the beginning of the day when the park opens, run to the back of the park to the bigger rides. Family's with children will be overrunning fantasy land, giving you a chance to get a few rides in on

    The show they put on about believing dreams is fun to watch-- the first time. The other 46327956 times you hear/see gets harder to bear.

    Find the barber shop on main street. It's a quaint little hideaway. If you've got a little girl, she'll love the hair glitter. :)

    Incase you didn't know - the names on the buildings are the names Walt Disney used to buy land in Orlando for the parks and resorts.

    After fireworks, use the sidewalks for a faster exit. If using the monorail, while in line take the outside of the turns to avoid the pileup on the inside. Then cut across to the next outside turn.

    All the names that are on the windows are actually the names of the people who worked on the park. Also, if you find the window that says singing lessons you can hear a women singing!
