Magic Kingdom Tips:
• Be the first guests to “Tink’s Treasures” in Fantasyland and ask a cast member to wake up Tinkerbell. If your kids are lucky, they will be given either a sword or a wand to tap on Tink’s chest. Next, in a display of light and sound, to everyone’s delight, Tinkerbell will wake up and flit around the store. Children will be presented with a ‘magical moment’ certificate proclaiming that they helped awaken Tinkerbell.
• Sunday through Thursday in Tomorrowland, if you are lucky you may come across an interesting trash can. “Push”, the talking trashcan, will amaze guests as he interacts with them in real time. How many people can say they’ve had a conversation with a trashcan? Visit during the hours of 10:00-4:00 and you may be one of the lucky few!
• If you are a proud U.S. Veteran, stop by City Hall at park opening and ask to be the “veteran of the day” to take part in the daily flag retreat ceremony held at 5:00. This makes a wonderful memory and they usually present a certificate to commemorate the moment as well.
• In Frontierland, if you ride the raft over to Tom Sawyers Island as early as possible (try around 10:00), look for a paintbrush hidden somewhere around the Island. The reward for finding one (there are usually over five of them) and bringing it to a Cast Member (try the raft operators) is a set of bonus fastpasses for the family to ride either Splash Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Score!
