The Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom opened in 1971 and is divided into five distinct areas (lands), arranged in a spoke-like formation, all meeting at the top of Main Street USA right in front of Cinderella Castle.

The five lands consist of TomorrowlandFantasylandFrontierlandLiberty Square and Adventureland. Each land is themed to its appropriate title and includes many rides, shows, and other attractions to keep the whole family entertained for many hours.

The Magic Kingdom contains some real “don’t miss” attractions, depending on what age bracket you fall in.  One of this parks strengths is the cross-generational appeal of many of its better attractions.  Splash Mountain is a good example.  It’s not unusual to see three generations of family members riding together.  Other favorites like Pirates of the CaribbeanJungle Cruise and Haunted Mansion offer similar appeal to a wide range of visitors.

The most spectacular of all Disney’s events are the parades and fireworks displays and the Magic Kingdom has one of the best.  Each day there is an afternoon parade and evening ‘lightshow’ both taking about 30 minutes to pass. There are many floats themed on Disney cartoons and films and you will be amazed as a huge collection of Disney characters dance and wave to music. The evening show is enhanced by thousands of lights on each of the floats and is closed by a huge firework display accompanying Tinkerbell flying from the top of Cinderella’s Castle.

Not to be missed!!!!
