All-American Eats - Nothing says American food more than hot dogs, corn dogs, and ice cream. Lucky for Disney guests, you'll be able to find all of the above together on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disney's Magic Kingdom. Casey's Corner is a quick service eatery located at the end of Main Street closest to the castle and has hot dogs and corn dogs with baseball themed decor. Right across the street, you'll find The Plaza. While the restaurant is table service, there is also a counter service ice cream shop attached where you can pick up a cone or a sundae. These treats are the perfect food and the perfect location for the Festival of Fantasy Parade that runs everyday in Magic Kingdom at 3PM.
All-American Attractions - Inside Magic Kingdom, guests can have an experience fit for a president at the Hall of Presidents. This indoor show features each of the U.S. presidents talking about their time in office using audio-animatronic technology. If your day in the parks takes you to Epcot, you can also brush up on your U.S. History by visiting the American Adventure. Join Mark Twain and Ben Franklin as they take you on a journey through U.S. History using music and some familiar faces. As a former U.S. History teacher I love any chance to highlight history lessons to my kids, but one added perk with both of these shows - they are in air-conditioned theaters!
All-American Fireworks - On the 4th of July and the days surrounding the holiday, Wishes gets an overhaul and the nightly fireworks show in Magic Kingdom pays tribute to the United States with patriotic songs. We also were lucky enough to see the Celebrate the Magic projection show with an American twist as red, white, and blue stars and stripes lit up the castle. No need to miss out on your holiday fireworks while on vacation in Walt Disney World.
Happy 4th of July everyone!!
