Magic Kingdom Park, Orlando

4.3
Hosting nearly 20 million guests each year, Magic Kingdom Park ranks among the most-visited theme parks in the world. Part of the world's biggest amusement park, which covers a vast area twice as large as Manhattan, this theme park is dedicated to fairy tales and Disney characters. The park's centerpiece is a replica of a fairy-tale castle from the 1950s' film "Cinderella." Six magical lands surround the castle, featuring boat and roller coaster rides, games, jungle cruises, train adventures, shooting arcades, and stage shows. Explore the themed lands of this wheel-shaped venue using Cinderella's castle as your hub. A narrow-gauge railroad runs along the park's perimeter and provides an excellent overview of the park before you start exploring.

  • We had early breakfast at Be our guest! Get the opening reservation!! And watch the front door to the restaurant!! They do a little thing at the beginning! Take video 📹 It's really cute We recommend sitting at the round table that is the closest to way you enter and face the windows looking out! You get an amazing view of the Ballroom and you see it with all 3 of the Chandeliers! 😉 It is stunning! Have fun!
  • This place is so magical! Whether you're a kid or an adult, it's a place for all and you can't help but feel happy! It was nostalgic for me to walk around the park again after 15 years when coming as a child with my parents. Absolutely loved the walkway to the Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse statue and Cinderella's Castle as soon as you enter, it's beautiful. You also can't help but buy some stuff when passing along! Tomorrowland is my personal favorite part of the park. The rides were great and fun, no complaints here. Loved the shows where Mickey Mouse and his friends would do in front of the castle. I just had an absolutely great time, and the Happily Ever After finale was a great way to end the visit.
  • I have visited the Magic Kingdom twice. First in 2012 and again in 2016. I really did enjoy myself the first time, lots of nostalgia and cool attractions to experience. The fast pass system was much different in 2012, when you went to the ride, you took a ticket and it gave you a specific time to come back. That way you could go and experience other attractions while still holding that golden ticket for something popular like Space Mountain. The new system is much more difficult to work with, and obtaining fast passes for the more popular rides are very difficult, especially when those who stay at a Disney resort can choose their passes up to 6 months early. But, if you're smart and know how to use the fast passes and the App, it can be a very enjoyable day. Depending on the time of year, it's quite crowded. 2012 seemed less so then 2016, and it can get frustrating trying to navigate through the crowds all day. Getting to the park can be a pain as well especially if the monorail or Fairy Boat are down. Prices for food and souvenirs can add up, so just be wise to plan ahead financially. Best advice I can give is to get there as early as you can and enjoy as much as you can before the crowds get too big. Do research on the crowd size for the time of year you are going and plan accordingly. Also, be aware of the weather. It's hot there in October when I was there, so going in the dead of summer is pretty rough. The rides are mostly geared towards kids, but most of them are very intriguing and amazing in design. Be prepared to spend more than you think, but also keep an open mind and try and enjoy everything you can. It really is a cool place to be.
  • We have come alone as a couple and with our son @ age 10 months, 2 1/2 years and 4 1/2 years. The magic of Disney has been a wonderful, special part of our family. We have stayed at All Star Movies and it is wholly sufficient with the same world class service! The food is expensive but that is expected. Highly recommend going early as possible to avoid lines...do most popular rides first! Use fast passes for afternoon.
  • The most magical place on Earth. This place is truly breathtaking, there is so much to do, I have to take 2 days in this park due to so much to see & do. The character meetings, the shops, the awesome food, the rides, the parades, the shows, the fireworks, the ambiance, there is just so much to take in. I really enjoyed the rides like classics it's a small world, Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain, Dumbo, all of these rides are classics & are a must to do. There are also special events that happen throughout the year, like The Not So Scary Halloween, The Disney Christmas Holiday Celebration & The Star Wars Celebration that happens from time to time. When you go bring a small cooler for your own drinks & bring plenty as the cost for these items are through the roof & their are limited places to fill water bottles. This my only dislike about the Disney parks, not enough areas to get cold drinking water at filling stations, it's a ploy to get you to spend more money. A family of 4 can spend upwards of $500 just to get into the parks, then there is food, parking, drinks, souvenirs, so you are looking at another $200+. So take your drinks & snacks to push the cost down. Trust me, I have spent over $10000 just on a week's vacation here for 3 kids & 2 adults. So be mindful if you are on a budget.
