Disney’s Magic Kingdom, the original of the four parks, has changed much over the years but it has always managed to keep its original vision and beauty. It is made up by five major lands and contains some of the most memorable rides and dining locations. With that much variety, the best way for you to truly enjoy your visit to the Magic Kingdom is to know the details before you go.
When you visit the Magic Kingdom, you have the ability to explore five distinct areas, called lands, and one extra area. Adventureland, Fantasyland, Liberty Square, Tommorowland, and Frontierland are the five separate areas that house most of the attractions and dining locations; they all converge together at Main Street U.S.A. Cast members can access each of the lands though the network of underground walkways and tunnels.
Rides and Attractions
The Magic Kingdom is home to some of the most popular rides and attractions. At least thirty-five rides fill the park and although the Magic Kingdom is often thought of as a park for little kids, there are plenty of rides for everyone. Lines can usually be found for Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, The Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mountain, and the Jungle Cruise. These are attractions your whole family can enjoy as they range from the most thrilling to calmer rides. Be sure and use the Fast Pass system though so you can maximize your time at the park.
Great Dining Options
