With all the walking and excitement your little ones will experience at the Magic Kingdom, a nap is an absolute must to avoid an overtired meltdown. If you can't make it back to your resort for an afternoon nap, no problem! There are plenty of napping options at the Magic Kingdom. Let's take a look at seven tried-and-true locations where your toddler or infant can relax and recharge.
Side Street off Main Street USA
As you're walking down Main Street towards the castle, there is a little side street on the right before the Main Street Bakery. You'll find caricature and silhouette artists here as well as some tables and chairs. This area is always quite empty (and quiet) and makes for a fantastic nap spot for a toddler in their stroller.
Walkway between Tomorrowland and New Fantasyland
This walkway is long and secluded and makes for the perfect spot to stroll while your little one recharges. Not many people use this walkway so it is very quiet and there are benches along the way.
Near Pete's Silly Sideshow
The seating area next to this character greeting spot is secluded, quiet and often not very crowded. Umbrellas provide shade and the tables and chairs have a great view of the nearby water play area. This is a perk if you have older children who would like to cool down and play while your toddler or baby naps.
The Hall of Presidents
If your infant prefers to nap in a baby carrier, the Hall of Presidents is a great spot to sit and relax in the air conditioning while your baby takes a nap. Sit toward the back of the theater for a quieter experience.
Liberty Square Riverboat
Not only does this Magic Kingdom nap option provide soothing movement, but the boat's stern wheel provides natural white noise as it journeys along the water.
Hopping on the monorail is another great option for a napping child. You don't have to disturb them if they've fallen asleep in the stroller and you can take multiple loops if needed while your child rests. You'll be in the air conditioning and the slight movement is soothing as well.
Resorts on the Monorail Line
Guests are welcome to explore any of the resorts on Disney's property even without a reservation. Hop on the Resort Monorail and head to the Contemporary, Polynesian or Grand Floridian and explore, snack or shop while your toddler or baby naps.
