Magic Kingdom Entertainment

There really is so much to do at Walt Disney World, that it's hard to get it all in on a regular vacation. You always rush to the rides and shows, parades and fireworks. But since I'm here for four months, I definitely have the time to stop and smell the roses. To sit down and take a break now and then. To sit on Main Street and people watch. To take the path less traveled.

So I decided I'd spend one of my days off experiencing some of the live entertainment featured at the Magic Kingdom.

The Dapper Dans has to be my absolute favorite live entertainment at Magic Kingdom. This barbershop quartet fits perfectly into the nostalgic feel of Main Street USA. Not only that, but they are incredibly talented. Their slapstick comedy, tap dancing, and pure vocal brilliance really makes this a must-see show. They appear throughout the day on Main Street USA.


Casey's Corner Pianist is another act that makes Main Street so much fun. If you're eating at Casey's Corner, make sure to grab a seat outside and watch the pianist rock out on the piano to old-timey music. He's a lot of fun to watch, and it's perfectly themed with the style of the restaurant.

The Main Street Philharmonic is a live band that I caught playing in Liberty Square. They were definitely a treat to watch! They're funny and quite entertaining, interacting with the audience and having guests participate in the act. They also started out the parade, so it was nice to be able to see them twice that day. They're a very talented bunch of musicians!

The Notorious Banjo Brothers & Bob are another live musical act that I saw playing over in Frontierland. These three guys are very funny, and they sang a song about Pecos Bill, which I thought was cool. Another excellent example of how well Disney themes the entertainment with the surrounding environment.
