Adventure Into The World of Yesterday, Tomorrow, and Fantasy: Disney Tip #11

by Peyton Spear

TIPS LOGOMy favorite part about Disney is the extra magic they are able to provide for their guests and sometimes, they go unsaid.

For those of you who enjoy getting the most out of your day in the parks, stay in the Magic Kingdom 30 minutes after the park closes to witness the “Kiss Goodnight“.

This is by far one of my top must-see events during your visit.

Playing 3 times every 30 minutes after closing time, Cinderella’s Castle will light up with special effects, while a narrated speech plays over the speakers with soft music in the background.

Since Disney does not publish this secret, you’ll find yourself with a smaller crowd of those who are “in the know”. This gives you and your group a great time to wind down for the night while enjoying the show. There is something special about the park when it is quieter.

On most visits to the Magic Kingdom, I have been able to witness the “Kiss Goodnight” but once or twice they did not show it. I hope you all will get the opportunity to experience this magical secret.

Have any of you seen the “Kiss Goodnight”? If so, what was your experience like?
