A Disney fan has revealed a secret spot where you can see all your favourite characters up close
There’s a spot in Magic Kingdom where you can get up close to the characters as they enter and exit the train station
Tiktok user Shannon, who goes by @brbgoingtodisney, shared the tip with her 18,000 followers.
She explained that there is a spot in Magic Kingdom next to the train station where characters regularly make an appearance.
If you stand in this spot, you can be up close to them as they enter and exit the station and get some one-on-one attention.
In the video, Shannon entered Magic Kingdom and stopped next to a red popcorn stand.
She said: “As you enter the park, if you see characters leaving the train station, you want to make your way over to the rope next to the Chamber of Commerce building.
“Specifically next to the red popcorn stand that I showed at the beginning of the video.
“As the characters leave the train station they will all pass right by you. It’s a great opportunity for waves and [to say] hi with your favourite characters – which is a rarity right now in Covid times.
“Have your camera ready!”
The video has been watched nearly 50,000 times, and people love the tip.
One person commented: “Yes! I saw the tip and we did it as we were leaving and got all the 50th characters to just ourselves.”
Another wrote: “Last time I was there a few weeks ago I caught all the Disney princesses right here!”
A third put: “Great tip! I will have to remember for my next trip.”
Another Disney fan has shared a different secret area of the park – and it’s where wedding proposals often take place.
