A Day At Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World (Halal Food Travel Guide)
Posted by SARAH MEQDADI
Come along with us as we discover Walt Disney World: Magic Kingdom with a toddler. We navigated and found halal food, places to pray and enjoyed the day as a muslim family.
I'll show you the best rides, attractions and food that your toddler is sure to love and you will too! Walt Disney World caters to families, I think that's a given based on their main audience.
So why wouldn't magic kingdom be built for them as well? Makes sense, right? I loved the convenience of the MyDisneyExperience app. Be sure to download that before your travels! It's a game changer. https://go.magik.ly/ml/pqx5/ The My Disney Experience is completely free and gives you quick access to fast passes, magic bands/tickets, mobile order services, request halal or kosher food (and specific dietary requests), a live interactive map of all the parks, wait time directories and more! Not sponsored, just truly loved this app experience and felt it made a difference in our trip. I share halal food and muslim travel in many of my videos. Okay, so which rides/shows did we do? The Muppets Present Great Moments in American History, "it's a small world", Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, Magic Kingdom Parade, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station, Storybook Circus Character Meet and Greet, Dumbo The Flying Elephant, Pirates of the Caribbean and Fireworks and Nighttime Spectaculars. In between those we hit up Columbia Harbour House (lobster roll), Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe (tacos and nachos), Big Top Souvenirs (Disney themed sweets), Sleepy Hollow (Spicy Chicken & Waffles) and Aloha Aisle (Dole Whip Cup for food. Definitely recommend these spots as the quality was pretty damn good and it didn't cost a small fortune. If you wanted to dine in, then be sure to reserve in advance, but I think that with a toddler it's far easier to not be on a rigid food schedule, that way if it rains and passes change up, you're not stuck choosing between a ride or restaurant.
Counter service is actually amazing at Disney and the important part is that its flexible and many offer mobile orders, which cuts your time waiting for food by a lot. Time is everything when you want to make the most of your park visit. Don't be afraid to travel with a young toddler, I honestly think it's completely worth it. If you do everything based on what (you believe) they'll remember, then you won't live a life at all. Memories are built through experience and experiences like this one do help our children grow and develop. I can definitely say that Suleiman learned at Disney.
His vocabulary increased, he's pointing more and he knows the characters (even though he's never watched a single show or movie). It really isn't about that for them at this age. The characters are like giant, moving stuffed toys to them and it was pure joy for Suleiman.
