Magic Kingdom Park is a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando, Florida. Owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company through its Parks, Experiences and Products division, the park opened on October 1, 1971, as the first of four theme parks at the resort. The park was initialized by Walt Disney and designed by WED Enterprises. Its layout and attractions are based on Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and are dedicated to fairy tales and Disney characters.
There no wrong time off year to visit the magic kingdom. Depending on what season you want. I love Halloween and Christmas time. Although I normally I do the private events for both these, this year I could not justify the price of tickets for a lesser service. I hope next year this is changed back to the old party, where its a longer time and more affordable.
