Top Disney Tips and Attractions you Dont' Know About

While the Magic Kingdom’s new Princess Fairytale Hall  saves steps and planning by corralling the most popular princesses into one meet-and-greet venue, they can also be spotted throughout Disney’s four parks. Frozen’s uber-popular princesses Anna and Elsa have already joined the lineup at Epcot’s Norway Pavilion

We haven’t met a little girl yet who didn’t love  being pampered like a princess at the  Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique  (at Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney). While a full-blown makeover can run $200, there’s no buyer’s remorse here. 

If the boutique is booked up, you can swing by the Harmony Barber Shop  in the Magic Kingdom for a free sprinkling of “pixie dust.” Here, Michael Rosenbaum, who plays the bald villain Lex Luthor on TV’s Smallville, jokes with barber Michal Marach at the Harmony Barber Shop at the Magic Kingdom. 

Book a “royal room” at the Port Orleans Resort .  The guestroom’s coolest perk is the fiber-optic “fireworks” built into the beds’ headboards. (Just be sure you’ve seen The Princess and the Frog, since that’s the resort’s main princess theme.) 

Most folks know you can dine with princesses at the Royal Table inside Cinderella Castle  at the Magic Kingdom. But there’s also the little-known My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea at the Grand Floridian’s Garden View Tea Room. It’s more intimate that some other princess events, and every girl gets her own 18-inch My Disney Girl doll (Disney’s version of the American Girl doll) with her take-home souvenirs. Book activities like character meals and cruises six months in advance.

It turns out entire families can bond over face-painted beards and plundered booty at the Pirates League , hands down the best pirate experience at Disney World. (Apologies to all animatronic Caribbean pirates.) In about 45 minutes, you get your pirate name, face paint, eye patch, sword and sash, and a visit to a secret treasure room. 

Reserve the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage , which sets sail from the Contemporary Resort. The pirate guide is over-the-top enough to keep sleepy little ones’ attention; the view of the Magic Kingdom’s Wishes fireworks makes it worthwhile for adults.

If Star Wars is your kid’s thing, then he just has to do Jedi Knight Training   — a chance to don a Jedi cape and engage in a light-saber duel with Darth Vader on stage. (Best photo op ever!) While it doesn’t require extra money, it does require getting out of bed early to get him signed up at ABC Sound Studio. 

Try to plan your visit during Star Wars Weekends , set for May 16 through June 15, for special events including appearances by Star Wars celebrities.
