It’s a perfect, sunny day at Magic Kingdom Park. How amazing is this view of the park and the first morning crowd from the very top of Cinderella Castle?

Which attraction would you head to first? Tell us in the comments section below.


  • It is morning. All Park Icons are situated with their back to the North. That is so you can always take a photo of the icon, without the sun ruining your photo. Thus the sun is in the east in this photo.

  • Space Mountain or Thunder Mountain.

  • Straight to Peter Pan!! Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning!

    That way we know we have arrived at WDW!!!!

    17 days till our Spring Break trip!!!!!

  • I’m with Benjamin- why is the sun in the West and everyone is lined up for a parade? And shouldn’t this be higher if this is the top of the castle? Don’t get me wrong; I love the pic!!! It just looks like it was taken on the balcony in the very front of the castle underneath the clock; I’ve always wanted to go on that balcony! I just don’t think this is Tinkerbell’s view 😉

  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train! However, my little princess heads for the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel…she always wins!


  • Peter Pan because in is impossible get in during the day or Thunder Mountain!

  • Haunted Mansion

  • Space Mountain, because going to the parks in the AM is like your morning cup of dose of coffee 🙂 Who needs caffeine when you got coasters?

  • Peter Pan! So sad we didn’t make it on there this last trip.

  • Space mountain to wake up the senses!

  • Big Thunder or Space Mountain

  • Space Mountain!

  • Why is the “first morning” crowd lined up for a parade? And the sun’s in the west already? Great pic, but probably not taken this morning, I’m thinking…

  • Any chance you might be putting live web cams back up in the parks? With views like this one? What a great way to get excited before a trip that might not come for quite a while or could be right around the corner. 🙂

  • Pirates! Then Big Thunder and The Haunted Mansion!

  • Pirates of the Caribbean

  • Haunted Mansion!

  • We always head to fantasy land and Peter Pan first thing as you can usually walk right on. Its nice to start the day flying through neverland
