7 Experiences You Should Visit After Dark At Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

Visit Disney’s Magic Kingdom during the day, and you are sure to enjoy the amazing attractions, delicious dining and treats, exciting parades, and beloved character interactions that make this park world famous. Once the sun goes down and the stars begin to twinkle in the warm Florida sky, the Magic Kingdom is indeed an enchanted place. The air seems to be infused with pixie dust as guests young and old smile and enjoy the magic of the night. The next time you visit the Magic Kingdom at night, be sure to check out these attractions for an entirely different experience.

1. The Jungle Cruise

A perennial fan favorite when the sun is shining, traveling down the Amazon, Congo, Nile, and Mekong rivers at night is twice as much fun. With low lighting in the lush jungle, mysterious shadows appear and make your voyage a completely different adventure.

2. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

The wildest ride in the wilderness appears to become faster at night. Zipping around the mining town and through the mountainous terrain gives riders beautiful nighttime views of the Magic Kingdom as well.

3. Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover

Get ready for a refreshing evening breeze after a hot Florida day while you take a ride above bustling Tomorrowland. Not only do you get a sneak peek as you go through several Tomorrowland attractions, but the views of Cinderella Castle at night are amazing.

4. Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

With shorter lines at night, riding the Carrousel in the warm glow of Cinderella Castle will make you feel like royalty. There is no better way to enjoy the twinkling lights of Fantasyland than from on top of a majestic carrousel steed.

5. The Haunted Mansion

With spooky music, spine-tingling howls, and dark shadows, the Haunted Mansion is even more eerie after dark. After your tour through the Mansion, don’t forget to take a look at the pet cemetery and hearse on your way out for more mysterious sights.

6. Swiss Family Treehouse

Guests might not have the energy to climb up the Treehouse in the heat of the day, but this attraction is not to be missed at night. Tropical music serenades guests as cool breezes filter through this massive tree. Once you get to the top level, the views of the Magic Kingdom at night from this angle are phenomenal.
