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 Lightning Lane / Disney Genie + 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?”

When you’re thinking about going from one reservation to another, there are SO MANY things that you can do in the Magic Kingdom that you really shouldn’t ever be “bored”. That being said, this park is by far and away my favorite place to waste time:)
