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.

Great day if you plan ahead! I can’t stress this enough-plan, plan, plan. We purchased genie plus and we were able to ride every ride (except splash mountain by choice) Some rides were a very short...

We had a great time here with the kids. This was our first visit to a Disney park since we were kids ourselves so there was a lot that we didn’t know. First off, the parades and shows throughout the day are incredibly well orchestrated and the kids loved it. There’s always something to see which is nice. We didn’t go for the photo pass which turned out to be a good choice because all the photos they took of us sucked. We did however buy the genie+ pass that allowed us to book rides ahead of time. If you’re going for only a single day definitely get this to optimize your time. The rides are a little more dated feeling than at Animal Kingdom but the kids didn’t notice. This is the most important thing to know heading in…EVERYTHING COSTS A FORTUNE. Here’s what you should consider bringing with you or buying elsewhere and the Disney prices for each. Portable fans ($30ea) Poncho ($10ea) Water ($3.50ea) Minnie ears ($30ea) Lunch ($15-30ea) Lots and lots of snacks. Have fun :)
Visited as 3 adults for the opening Mickey's not no scary Halloween party. Having travelled from the UK and not doing the Disney parks this year it wasn't to be missed for a first time experience. Last visit was 7 years ago and it didn't disappoint. Arrived at 4pm, you don't have to make a reservation for special events and rode Haunted mansion, Splash mountain, Big thunder mountain and pirate's of the Caribbean with little to no queue. The event start at 7pm and managed to ride space mountain in the dark and the tea cups with a spooky theme. The check up points for candy were everywhere and you collected tokens to exchange for allergies. Enjoyed the magic of walking down Main Street and soaking the atmosphere all in. Whilst most of the shops were shut to prepare for the event still managed to get some goodies. As for a day in the it's perfect for little ones, adults or those with any additional needs. Plenty to do for all. The event queue for merchandise was hectic so I recommend waiting until later on in the evening if you wish to purchase anything. Don't forget to collect your free print on the way out and if it rains the parade or show may be delayed (which is what we experienced) but wait for it! It's worth it 😊 characters are about in costumes but be prepared to wait for over an hour for some. Elvis stitch, Winnie the Pooh and friends were especially popular. Jack and Sally are in the main theatre and they tend to be the busiest due to the event.
