While Disney World in Florida is a huge tourist destination with lots of popular and well-known attractions that most visitors tend to gravitate towards, there are many hidden delights within the parks that are just as exciting and entertaining. Nestled within the world of Mickey Mouse and the Magic Kingdom, another dimension of Disney World exists.
A True Taste of Old America
Liberty Square recreates the experience of early American life. One unique detail is the house number on each house. Each house’s four numbers represent the actual year in which the architectural style of that particular home was popular. Another interesting aspect of Liberty Square is that there is a central oak tree decorated with 13 lanterns, each of which represents one of the thirteen colonies. In addition, the rocks bordering the bridge from the Hub into Liberty Square came from the quarry where Washington crossed the Delaware.
Laugh and Drink
Just outside MouseGear are fountains that crack jokes whenever someone takes a drink from them. Quenching one’s thirst has never been so funny.
Old World Charm
It’s a good idea to visit the fountain around the German pavilion five minutes before the hour. During this time, a cuckoo bird emerges from the big clock tower.
A Lively Jungle
If a family explores the Asia section of the Animal Kingdom at the right time, they may luckily stumble upon DiVine, which is a walking piece of shrubbery.
Just an hour before the fireworks display at Magic Kingdom, families can enjoy a Fireworks dessert party at the Tomorrowland Terrace. This self-service buffet also offers a great view of the show.
Customize a Coiffure
Families can book appointments to get haircuts at the Harmony Barber Shop. Here, one can get an old-fashioned groom with a magical touch while the kids can try the coloured gel and pixie dust!
The Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Ft. Wilderness Resort enables the family to experience horses up close and personal. There are all sorts of horse riding options including carriage, hay and wagon rides.
Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure at EPCOT and Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom involve an interactive scavenger hunt where the player must solve puzzles and make things happen in the parks as they experience the game.
