With all of the crowds at Magic Kingdom, it can be hard to find a quiet space to relax. We’ve scouted out 5 of the quietest spots in Magic Kingdom!
1. The walkway between Storybook Circus and Tomorrowland
We use this walkway every trip. It used to be a smoker section, but the smoking areas are now outside of the front entrance. Today, it’s a quiet space with benches, shade from trees, and a view of the train & Tomorrowland Speedway! It’ll bring you from Storybook Circus to next to Space Mountain.
2. The Noodle Bar seating
The Noodle Bar, also known as the Tomorrowland Terrace, is the quick-service location when you first enter Tomorrowland. To get here, take a right at Plaza Ice Cream on Main Street and walk under the canopy. There is a ton of seating to the right that is rarely used (this quick-service location is open seasonally). If you’re looking for a spot to have a picnic, use an empty bathroom, or just take a break, this is a great spot!
3. The secret room on The Liberty Square Riverboat
The Liberty Square Riverboat in it of itself is a great spot to relax. This 17-minute trip takes you around the Rivers of America, with views of different attractions and sights from the American frontier that you can only see from the boat. But, our recommendation for a quiet spot is on the second floor of the boat. While everyone else goes to the top deck, head to the middle of the boat and find this room!
4. rocking chairs on tom Sawyers Island
There’s a lot of quiet spots on Tom Sawyers Island, but our favorite is the dock with rocking chairs near Big Thunder Mountain. You can watch the trains go by (or take a nap). Regardless, this is one of our favorite spots to head to if we need a break from the heat and crowds!
5. East Center Street on Main Street, USA
Even if you’ve been to Disney hundreds of times, you might not recognize the name East Center Street. Main Street USA used to have two side streets, West Center Street and East Center Street. The Emporium expansion took over West Center Street, so only East remains. It’s the little side street behind the caricature artists. There’s a seating area in the back with umbrellas, and the only traffic you’ll get through this area is the occasional cast member.
The Hub Grass didn’t make the list, but this is a spot we’ve had success with! Our only complaint is that there isn’t much shade here depending on the time of day. The Hub Grass is between Main Street and the Castle. It’s not real grass, just turf, and very comfortable to take a midday break!
