Wasting Time in the Magic Kingdom

On our last trip to Walt Disney World, we found ourselves wandering around the Magic Kingdom while waiting for our various dining and FastPass+ reservations.

This lead me to the current question – “What can you do in the meantime, when you don’t want to walk from one end of the park to the other?”
