This is an encompassing review of all the parks, or kingdom's, within Disney World. The rides overall are suited for children, but are enjoyable to all. Walt Disney is geared towards this age group, but there are many life-long fans of Walt Disney as well. My grandfather had such a smile on his face when going on 'It's a Small World,' that was his favorite. This was fourteen years ago, and I remember that smile. The design of the rides are very much aesthetic and otherwise pleasing to the eye. The staff, to their credit, are very much pleasant and cheerful. Those that play roles, play them very well. There are Disney characters throughout the kingdoms, and live shows in each one as well. There is an army of janitorial staff keeping the kingdoms clean and tidy. The resorts of Disney World offer more than a bed and a room with simple amenities. It's convenience, as there is a steady stream of transportation to take you to and from the kingdoms. Price is a concern noted in reviews, a concern that I was apprehensive about. Taking into account the kingdoms and their attractions, the veterinary services and animals in the Animal Kingdom, the food and janitorial services, performers, and fireworks the kingdom's use each night; you're getting your money's worth. You need to step back and look at the big picture to appreciate what they are doing at Walt Disney World. I wasn't looking forward to coming, but glad I had gone.
I love this place I've been taking my kids since they were little and we still come every year now I bring my grand kids. Some things are a little high but try going to the beach for a weekend and I bet you spend more. I never stay off property it's so much better being right there no travel, if you get tired just get on the bus and head back to your room it's so much easier and its affordable do the math. If you're flying you get a free shuttle. The food is excellent just the atmosphere is awesome I just love Disney went 4 times this year and I live 18 hours away sometimes I fly and sometimes I drive my RV I just love it!!!!!
This really is a wonderful place. You can't possibly think that it will be cheap though if you consider just everything they have to offer. Try getting fast passes and other things to make the day easier or else you'll be stuck waiting behind all the complaining people who think that visiting a grand group of theme parks like Disney World should cost as much as a trip to Myrtle Beach. It's not cheap. It's an amazing experience, but don't expect it to be cheap, plan ahead so you can have the time of your life!
Disney is for the little kids, and the new parents. This was my second time coming to Disney. The first time I went, I was around the age of 10 or so. I remember a lot of characters, and it being a very magical place... My autograph book to this day proves how many characters I met. This past (late) September, I saw 4 characters. We got there as soon as it opened, and what seemed like a short line, ended up being an hour wait just to meet Minnie. I felt that there was a lot of "dead space" throughout Magic Kingdom, that they could utilize their equipment better, and improve a lot of their technology. The prices are typically about $2-$4 higher on each item than competitor parks, but, you're there, you have to spend your money. I would definitely recommend coming here if you have never been, but there are plenty of other parks that have a lot more to offer. I don't feel that they are quite on track with technology... big deal breaker for me. The best part of the park is Fantasyland, without a doubt. Make a reservation at Be Our Guest, that is the best part.. even though they got my order wrong and no one spoke any English... the structure of the building was superb!
The best of them all and most likely the most expensive also. But they do give a lot to see and do just make sure to bring double what you thing you will spend. Everything is ridiculously high priced even the fast food restaurants. A friend went to buy one cigar and paid $7.00 for it. He called a friend that lives here and he was able to pick up 4 of the exact cigars for $4.50. So you see the difference immediately. If you can bring it yourself do so.
