Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Theme Park at Walt Disney World Orlando

Disney’s Magic Kingdom was the first ever attraction to open at Orlando’s sprawling Walt Disney World back in 1971, and still remains as one of the most popular theme parks on the planet today. With the iconic Cinderella Castle as its centerpiece, the park promises a long list of Disney-inspired rides, roller coasters, and attractions spread across an enormous 107-acre site a short drive southwest from downtown Orlando.

Disney World has since expanded, with Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot joining the original Magic Kingdom to form a quartet of parks in total. There are also two separate water parks (Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach) at Disney World. However, Magic Kingdom retains its place as the premier amusement park for young children who want to be dazzled by their favorite characters come to life, and experience that unmistakable, extraordinary Disney charm. 

Do not that tickets are sold separately for Disney’s Magic Kingdom, with day-passes starting at $105 per person. You can then upgrade your ticket to the ‘Park Hopper Option’ which grants access to all four parks at an additional cost $64 per day.

Attractions at Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Welcoming nearly 20 million visitors a year and consistently ranked as the world’s best theme park, it’s no surprise that Disney’s Magic Kingdom promises a long, long list of family-friendly things to do and see – enough to fill up a few days alone.

The park is spilt into six different ‘lands’: Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland, Main Street, and Liberty Square. Check out the best attractions at each of these zones below:

Adventureland – inspired by the tropical jungles of Africa, Asia and South America, this is the place to delve into the deep, dark world of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, float down the river in the ‘Jungle Cruise’ simulator, or go wild in the long-standing ‘Enchanted Tiki Room’.

Fantasyland – this recently-expanded part of Magic Kingdom is inspired by the medieval fayres and carnival featured in Walt Disney’s movies. Top rides and attractions here including the more child-friendly ‘It’s a Small World, ‘Peter Pan’s Flight’, ‘Seven Dwarfs Mine Train’ and ‘Tangled’.

Frontierland – head back in time to the Wild West with the fun (and rather wet) 50-foot high ‘Splash Mountain’, the classic part-indoor part-outdoor ‘Big Thunder Mountain Railroad’ and the interactive audio-animatronic ‘Country Bear Jamboree’ – one targeted towards younger kids.

Tomorrowland – as the name suggests, Tomorrowland is your chance to take a glimpse into the future, be it from a modern-day perspective, or that of visionaries fifty years ago. The selection of rides and attractions here are good for all ages, with the classic ‘Space Mountain’ still proving popular alongside the rocket-spinning ‘Astro Orbiter’, and the race track at ‘Tomorrowland Speedway’.

Main Street, USA – for that iconic photo-op with Cinderella Castle as the backdrop, there’s no better place than Main Street. Quite literally the ‘main street’ of Disney’s Magic Kingdom, this is where you’ll find most of the park’s shops, restaurants, and vendors; always alive with activity and always fun – just be patient with the crowds, especially when trying to get that all-important photo.

Liberty Square – find some of Disney’s classic attractions at this themed colonial town – inspired by the American Revolution. Look out for the ‘Haunted Mansion’, ‘Liberty Belle Riverboat’ and check out the cool ‘Hall of Presidents’.
