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.

  • Just got back from Disney World Magic Kingdom - picked up COVID as an added souvenir. It was really hot and crowded for the week of Labor Day. The attendants (cast members) on all the attractions...

  • always a magical experience at Disney world. Every employee was so helpful and answered anything questions we had. Genie+ was definitely worth the by to avoid waiting in lines often.

  • It's magical. I went for the first time at the ripe old age of 28 and the magic was alive. Went during October so the weather was cool (for Orlando) and the crowds weren't terrible. The moment I walked in I felt as if I had stepped into another world. From each beautifully and meticulously designed structure to the cast members always in character Disney does a wonderful job of pulling you into their world. It's definitely someplace to be experienced, at any age. While I don't want to downplay any part of the park the nighttime fireworks and light show is spectacular. If you grew up with the classic Disney films it'll fill you with nostalgia. If you're not familiar with Disney chances are the fireworks will still blow you away. Some tidbits: -if you're using fast passes (which you should) book them early! -There will be lines, even on off seasons -If you can stay at a Disney resort do it, it'll save you valuable commute time and you get extra hours to enjoy the park. The extra morning hours are useful to beat the crowds on the popular rides -The Disney buses were invaluable as they got us from park to park quickly -if you want to save money on drinks bring your own bottle and fill up at the fountains
  • Pros: the place was cool and the people were very friendly (except at the haunted mansion, as it should be :-). It is still magical. The crowds were not shoulder to shoulder, and I suspect that has to do with the limiting using reservations. Cons: While the ferry, monorail and sky lifts are working, Disney hasn't seen fit to start back up the trams. This has a 1000 step detriment to our feet impact and put my wife on a cane the second day in the park. I can see no reason for not running the trams from a policy perspective, so it is likely either a staffing issue or an attempt to get more profit from the $25 cost in parking. They should either reduce their parking fee, build closer parking (a garage), or get the trams running again. The indoor masking protocol was appreciated. And while a Disney staff member was watching and calling people out on their improper lack of masking, nearly 100% of folks complied. However, at several bathrooms where no Disney staff was present at the entry, the men wore their makes indoors at about a 30% rate. This made me have to hold it one day for several hours as it was true at every bathroom I came across in the park. I finally went once I left the park. Both of those issues left me with a sour taste in my mouth. It may be the most magical place on earth, but the magic is wearing thin, and it's not a good sign for the rest of the earth.
