Magic Kingdom

 

 

We absolutely adore the Magic Kingdom, this is Orlando's original Disney Theme Park, opened in 1971 and quite simply the most magical place on earth visited by tens of millions every year!

The world’s most famous theme park, Magic Kingdom Park is the place where childhood dreams come true. With more than 40 unforgettable rides and attractions, themed dining and shopping, and countless surprises, your imagination really is the limit when you’re at “The Most Magical Place on Earth” right here in Orlando.

Magic Kingdom Park is divided into six themed lands, each with a different focus.

 

After arriving at the park by yferry or monorail, you’ll stroll through the gates into the first area, Main Street U.S.A.

 Here, you can hop aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad for a fast-paced circular tour of the park, or you can head off on foot to explore ths magical park and discover what else is in store for you.

When you arrive at the end of Main Street U.S.A. and the beautiful Cinderella Castle is in front of you, where you decide to go from there is up to you, each land can be discovered from this circular hub.

 

If you opt for a clockwise direction, you’ll encounter Adventureland and its classic attractions. Famous rides here include the amazing Pirates of the Caribbean and the classic Jungle Cruise, and you can cool off as playful animatronic birds entertain you at Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.

If you left Main Street aboard the Disney Railroad, you’ll be able to disembark at the next stop, Frontierland. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain provide big thrills in this section, where you can also relax and take your own pace while you explore Tom Sawyer Island.

Next, you’ll come to Liberty Square, where you can party with 999 happy haunts at Haunted Mansion. Or, hear what past and present U.S. leaders have to say, literally at The Hall of Presidents.

But enough with anything involving the real world lol, it’s time to move on to Fantasyland, which is home to Cinderella Castle and also features a stop on the Disney Railroad. In this land, you can soar at Peter Pan’s Flight, enjoy a rocky ride at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and take a musical journey around the globe at "it’s a small world", among other attractions.

 

Last but not least, Tomorrowland will take you to the future. In addition to white-knuckle excitement on Space Mountain and other rides, this area has two great ways to enjoy a relaxing break between thrills, the true Disney classic, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress and Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover.

 

Beyond its rides and shows, Magic Kingdom Park is packed with character encounters, fun shops and dining.

 

It also hosts two of Orlando’s most popular annual events: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in the lead-up to Halloween, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party during the holidays.

With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder why Magic Kingdom Park continues to be a must-visit for millions of people around the world 50 years after it opened. See below for more details on the Magic Kingdom and make sure it’s included on your next visit to Orlando!
