Magic Kingdom – The Walt Disney World Resort classic. The beginning of the Orlando boom.
It feels like a visit to Orlando is not complete without having seen this park from the inside.
Magic Kingdom has more than anything else set its mark on Florida as a tourist destination. It’s a classic that nobody should miss – a pleasure for all ages!

Magic Kingdom

Despite all the new attractions in Orlando since 1971, Disney’s Magic Kingdom is still Florida’s premier and most popular attraction.

This is the theme park that got all the carousels in central Florida to start spinning – and still does.
The very beginning of a rather small city’s transformation into a multimillion metropolis.

At an almost unmatched speed, the Magic Kingdom on opening on October 1, 1971, paved the way for more Disney parks, the Universal parks, the Sea World parks and much more.

At Magic Kingdom, with Disney’s famous monorail, you will discover a park that has everything: from roller coasters in all shapes, sizes and speeds to all Disney characters on Main Street.

Our comments:

  • It does not matter that parts of the Magic Kingdom feel a little childish. This park is to be experienced by all ages.
  • Get a day ticket (more time is not required in Magic Kingdom).
  • Be sure to be in place when the park opens.
  • Stay at a nearby hotel, ideally at a Lake Buena Vista hotel.


Disney has introduced seasonal prices for one-day tickets at Magic Kingdom. Adult tickets are about $ 116-137, children around $ 110-130. The Disney fast pass is always included in Disney tickets purchased via FloridaUSAguide and the Official Ticket Center.

If you see lower prices anywhere else it is most likely because taxes and other administrative costs are not included.

Magic Kingdom, which is set up as a circle, is divided into six different areas. Together they form a wheel with the Cinderella castle as the hub. The castle itself is the symbol of the Magic Kingdom.

Main Street, USA

is part of the entrance, the area you approach after having left the Disney monorail at the Magic Kingdoms station. This is the park’s “avenue” with shops for souvenirs and food. The street leads directly to the Cinderella castle.


This country represents the magic of foreign countries. Among other things, there are the popular Pirates of the Caribbean ride, The Jungle Cruise, Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, The Swiss Family Treehouse and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin.


A theme with cowboys and native americans, with fast-paced rides as the main drawstrokes. Here, Disney wants to take the visitor to the Wild West.
Rivers of America is an artificial river. Other attractions are the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain.

Liberty Square

is US history and home to the Liberty Bell, a riverboat that runs on the above-mentioned river.
The attractions are all about American history. Example: The Hall of Presidents, and the Muppets presenting The Great Moments in American History.


In an intergalactic city, we look into the future, with a perspective as if we were in the 50’s.

Classic Space Mountain is featured here, as well as the Carousel of Progress, Astro Orbiter, Tomorrowland People Mover and Tomorrowland Speedway. Some news are to be expected here before the park celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2021.


The land is all about medieval times. You get to meet both Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan.

This part of the Magic Kingdom was undergoing a major expansion 2012-2014 which doubled the area in size, resulting in, among other things, Under the Sea: The Journey of the Little Mermaid, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a rocking rollercoaster and Beauty and The Beast.

Among the tractions: It’s a Small World, Peter Pan’s Flight, Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the Mad Tea Party.

Magic Kingdom – the world’s most visited theme park

For over ten years, Magic Kingdom has been ranked as the world’s most visited theme park and has had the top position in the United States almost twice as long. The park is visited by approximately 20 million people each year.
