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.
  • A great place to visit with kids between 2 and 11 years of age. It's part of Disney world. Kids under two are free. Lots to do for families. The Theme rides, and shows are entertaining. It was very crowded in some areas. I would recommend getting lightning passes for some of the more popular rides as the waits can be long. We waited 70 minutes for The Pirates of the Caribbean theme ride. But no wait for Splash Mountain with the lightning pass, and a very short wait for the Jungle Cruise. Best fireworks show I have ever seen. I probably wouldn't visit the Magic Kingdom without kids. Maybe one of the other parks within Disney World. Tickets are pricey starting at $109.00 per person
  • I've been coming to Disney for over 30 years and sadly the "Magic" has left the building. We essentially paid $1200 to walk around the park and not be able to enjoy any attraction. Crowds are staggering. Shoulder to shoulder, people are understandably rude because there is zero enjoyment. Wait times for rides are 75-90 minutes for nearly every ride. Food lines and restaurant wait times are ridiculously long, waiting 30 minutes for an $8 hot dog is to be expected. There are no water refill stations and the drinking fountain water tastes like swamp water, so in order to stay adequately hydrated, you'll spend $60 in bottles water per person, per day. It's insane. What average American family can afford this? The Genie Plus is an overly complicated system, cannot guarantee entry to attractions, and guess what? Cost extra for little value. Ironically, the souvenir shoppes are well stocked and no wait, so you can spend even more money. I used to love Disney, but now it's absolutely shameful what it's become.
  • I live in Florida not far from Disney and I carry a season pass so I frequent Disney parks quite frequently. Yesterday I got to witness something I had never seen before and it brought tears to my eyes and hope in my heart. Everyday at 5 p.m. in the Magic Kingdom at the center where the American flag flies they do a special ceremony of lowering the flag. Prior to this event at some point they pick a veteran or a current military enlistee from the crowd or from a booking at one of the resorts. How it's done is somewhat of a secret nobody really knows. Then they honor that veteran, that service member at the lowering of the flag. His family, wife, children are present for this ceremony then they present this veteran with the flag. With the Ensemble of the band and those taking part in the ceremony they are marched down Main Street to a special area for a private ceremony then the veteran is given the flag. I know a lot of people like to complain about the prices at Disney but when you look around and see everything that Disney does for the community for the parks and for those that serve us well let's just say I'm grateful for Disney. And thank you Disney for providing such a wonderful experience. Your facilities inside and out are always clean people are always kind and friendly and I appreciate that and all the efforts you take to make the visit of every person every child as special as it can be. Thank you
