Park of the Week: Magic Kingdom Topic of the Day: Most Overlooked What are your favorite most overlooked attractions & special experiences at the Magic Kingdom?

Main Street is definitely overlooked and I'm so happy to have met someone else who adores the Bakery like I do! While it isn't necessarily an attraction, it's really a shame that so many overlook the little things put into the park (or any park for that matter) especially the architectural design. Did you know that the bricks get smaller as you go up the castle and go down Main Street towards the castle so that through forced perspective, the castle looks taller and the walk down Main Street looks longer in the morning and shorter as you leave, tired, at the end of the day? Not many people think about that. - Jazzes92  6.6 #312 12:24PM
Also, the distance between trash cans in each park is about 30 steps because during construction, Walt visited other amusement parks and saw that most people would only hold onto a piece of trash for about 30 steps before they dropped it on the ground. Sorry, I'm pretty long-winded about these things. :) - Jazzes92  6.6 #312 12:27PM
During the day cuz of heat we sometimes walked thru main St stores. But night I love walking down main St hate when it ends!! - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #62 12:31PM
Thanks for the bricks info that's cool. I had heard about the trash cans. Walt thought of everything! - DizneyGirl  620.9 #8 12:40PM
Here's a bit of trivia info for u guys! The castle is actually made out of fiberglass not bricks. Did u guys know that?? I found that out a couple of years ago and was shocked! Lol. good tidbit of info to know to ask others for fun:) - mickeynme  153.3 #50 12:51PM
Jazzes... that's sooo cool! Thanks for sharing that! I'm going to be sure to slow down and take notice of things on our next visit. - BagGal  225.4 #31 8:44PM
I didn't know that they designed the castle that way either. And the trash cans is another interesting fact I didn't know. I must tell my family. Lol. Thanks for sharing! - mickeynme  153.3 #50 8:51PM
Walt really did think of everything!! And, the gum thing, too...no gum sold anywhere on Disney property to keep it cleaner. :) - mrsincredible  819.3 #5 3:16AM
At mrsincredible..yes! No gum anywhere. Lol. I always bring my own. And no alcohol served on MK premises. Walt wanted to keep that innocent,pure,family atmosphere. Love him for that. Such insight and a genius mind - mickeynme  153.3 #50 11:33AM
Yes, he did...just pure genius, that man!! - mrsincredible  819.3 #5 12:08PM
Hm not much is overlooked in mk that I can think of wow! So I hope I learn something in this from others lol - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #62 7:28AM
I don't think it's over looked but our special experience always happens at the BBB our shy daughter is made up and she feels like a true princess! - girlonfire  53.3 #91 7:31AM
I'd have to say many things on Main Street, it seems we all rush down main street to the castle and then on to the rides!  The Main Street Bakery is one of the best places I've eaten at Disney, like the top 5 for sure!!  Also, the Barber Shop Quartet!!  I'd say even Main Street Vehicles, which I plan on riding at least one on our next trip! Oh, yes, the Harmony Barber Shop, your kids can get their hair gelled and confettied up for about $7, that's SO worth it!! - DizneyGirl  620.9 #8 7:32AM
Got Main Street bakery on the list this trip, never eaten there... I seem to always rush down Main Street to the castle! ;) - mrsincredible  819.3 #5 10:36AM
LOL! I think you should eat there, you will LOVE it! Do it for breakfast!! - DizneyGirl  620.9 #8 11:42AM
I have never tried the Main Street Bakery. Putting it on my to do list this November. - disneycm  560.0 #10 1:39PM
Well, we have table service reservations 3x per day... I know, I know... haha, but we'll definitely stop in for a mid-day snack (even if we aren't hungry) just so we can say we experienced it!! :) - mrsincredible  819.3 #5 1:54PM
You'll have to use your snack credit there :) You are going to be SO full! Disney is the place to eat up tho, many of the restaurants out do anything we have here. - DizneyGirl  620.9 #8 8:00PM
Ooooh, those sound great! We always rush down Main St. too. Not this time!! - BagGal  225.4 #31 8:41PM
Main St bakery was so packed we had tt stand. But one of my fav breakfast spots! - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #62 7:34AM
Isn't it just awesome! - DizneyGirl  620.9 #8 8:36AM
Sonny Eclipse. Hands down. - IndyandMarion  1238.1 #1 8:12AM
Aww..love that green guy:) - mickeynme  153.3 #50 8:35AM
we really loved that entertainment at lunchtime! - ncjal  209.6 #34 5:05PM
Amen. Favorite place to eat in all of WDW. Love Cosmic Ray. I have his Vinyl. - samndawn67  21.8 #147 10:55PM
I'd have to agree with DizneyGirl and w/Indy. Def main street is often overlooked because ppl are in such a rush to get to the castle.lol..and sonny eclipse in cosmic rays. To add to it,the boat ride in frontierland is often overlooked. Tom sawyer island is another one that most ppl miss. Out of all the times I've been to Disney, we never went there. Maybe next time.lol - mickeynme  153.3 #50 8:41AM
I'm so riding the Liberty Belle it looks so relaxing!! - DizneyGirl  620.9 #8 11:47AM
Yes,that's the name! I was trying to think of it. The liberty belle! Lol. It really is relaxing. Do go on when you're there! - mickeynme  153.3 #50 12:46PM
I've rode the paddle boat in DL, but not in years! That's definitely one of those things people don't make time for as they're running from one ride to the next! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  871.7 #3 4:13PM
What or who is sonny eclipse ???? - shewsluvwdw  58.0 #85 9:27AM
I'm not familiar with him/it either. Do tell, Indy!! - mrsincredible  819.3 #5 10:47AM
Puppet playing music as Cosmic Rays. He reminds me of Alf for some reason. - BodinFabFive  26.3 #130 11:00AM
The kids love him..part of the reason we go to Cosmic Rays! - justGoofin  128.8 #55 11:02AM
I know exactly what you're talking about now!!!!! :) - mrsincredible  819.3 #5 11:40AM
Ive nvr been to cosmic rays or knew abt Sonny..thx for this - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #62 3:11AM
I agree with Main st. We always rush past. Next we will try the bakery for sure. - BodinFabFive  26.3 #130 11:02AM
Do, you will be glad you do, wonderful breakfast and I'm sure snack would be great too! - DizneyGirl  620.9 #8 11:47AM
Yes,DizneyGirl is so right! Main street bakery is wonderful:) - mickeynme  153.3 #50 12:48PM
Oh ok !!!! That's y I don't know who sonny is, funny enuf we have never been to cosmic rays. Thx MW !! - shewsluvwdw  58.0 #85 1:40PM
