5 Secrets Disney Insiders Don’t Want You to Know

2. Secluded Spots to Rest in the Parks: Touring the parks is exhausting, but every Walt Disney World vet knows the out-of-the-way, quiet spots to take a break. Here are some of my go-to relaxing places. In Animal Kingdom, sit down in the cool caves on Discovery Island, or rest on a bench Maharaja Jungle Trek and enjoy some animals. When in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, head back to Streets of America. At Epcot, the way back of the Morocco or United Kingdom pavilions are almost always empty, and are great places to rest weary feet. In Magic Kingdom, I always hop on the Walt Disney World Railroad to sit without feeling like I’m missing out on anything.
