Magic Kingdom is Walt Disney World's most popular destination, and is first on everyone's list of things to experience when they arrive in Central Florida. Dreams of fairy tales come true for children of all ages in the Magic Kingdom Park. Enjoy classic attractions, charming fireworks, musical parades and the beloved Disney Characters in 6 fantasy lands. Witness how the fantasy becomes reality by exploring Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and the areas of Tomorrowland and Main Street, U.S.A. Get close to the space, become an adventurous pirate and contemplate the display of fireworks in the sky above Cinderella Castle..
"Magic Kingdom has more attractions per square foot than the other parks which means more choices. It also means that if you plan right you can beat the crowds and save yourself a lot of time standing in line."
It has often been said that the true essence of Disney magic can be experienced simply by stepping foot inside the Magic Kingdom. Opened in 1971, the venerable theme park has withstood decades of changing cultures, a constantly shifting social climate, and an explosion of technology that has left lesser places outdated and obsolete. Yet, somehow, the Magic Kingdom continues to remain the undisputed king of theme parks, drawing more yearly visitors than any other.
How the Magic Kingdom has managed to maintain its charm and appeal over the years is a lesson in simplicity. It has stayed true to its original vision, a place where families could gather in a clean and safe environment to enjoy the time they spend together. No trip to Disney World is complete without visiting the Magic Kingdom. For veteran visitors to Walt Disney World, visiting the Magic Kingdom is like visiting an old friend. To first time visitors, they find themselves quickly, and almost helplessly, transported back to their childhood.
