Magic Kingdom at Disney World. What can I say? It is the most magical place on earth. It’s the park that one thinks of when you say Disney World. First on every list.
Two of my favorite special events are held at Magic Kingdom. This is where you will catch Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. There’s live entertainment, parades, fireworks characters, even snow! Oh… plus of course Santa Claus. Held on select dates in November through December. Plus, select Magic Kingdom rides will be open. This might be your best chance to take in those popular rides.
You won’t want to miss Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Held on select dates in September through October. Not so scary fun for everyone. I can’t get that song “Boo to You” out of my head!
Main Street U.S.A.
Small town America. A town we all wish we had lived in. Parades, candy shops, horse drawn carriages, train, and more. Hmm, not to mention a castle!
Plus, this is where you will find the Harmony Barbershop. That’s right, a full-fledged barbershop in Disney World. Perfect for your little one’s first hair cut.
Here is where you will find stroller and wheelchair rentals, first aid, lost and found, guided tours, and all day lockers. If you haven’t already, now is when you should pick up a map of the Magic Kingdom. Besides showing attractions, shops and restaurants. There are hours for special events, parades and concerts on the Times Guide sheet. Plus, where to find your favorite Disney Characters.
Crystal Palace has been serving up food since day one. Offering three meals of all you can eat buffets. Along, with Winnie the Pooh and friends.
Parrots, lions and pirates…Oh my! Can be found among others here in Adventureland.
The Enchanted Tiki Room. The original fab four are here. Jose, Fritz, Michael, and Pierre. Don’t be afraid to sing along! It’s all part of the fun.
Who hasn’t seen at least one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. How many has there been? Catch our favorite pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, here on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. This is a must do Magic Kingdom ride.
Ever dream of flying magic carpets or living like the Swiss Family Robinson? Make your dreams come true at the Magic Carpets of Aladdin and the Swiss Family Treehouse.
Maybe a tramp steamer tour is more your bag. Then the Jungle Cruise will be for you. Slow going humorous boat ride.
This is the wild, wild, west of the Magic Kingdom.
Experience the thrill of a runaway train on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. This here’s the wildest ride in the wilderness!
Country Bear Jamboree is a vaudeville type revue. I remember my first time seeing these bears. Many, many years ago.
For you sharpshooters (and not so sharp) there is the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade.
Splash Mountain, definitely one the top attractions in all of Walt Disney World.
Slow down and take a relaxing 20-minute scenic tour around Magic Kingdom on the Walt Disney Railroad.
Parents relax and let the kids run free. Run free? At Tom Sawyer Island that is.
Come explore America at the time of the revolutionary war. The Hall of Presidents, Liberty Belle Riverboat, slow down and relax awhile.
The Haunted Mansion another top attraction on everyone’s list. Where else will you meet Hitchhiking ghosts? This interactive queue is to die for…of course.
You will find the Liberty Tree Tavern here. A fan favorite of many.
Fantasyland is the heart of the Magic Kingdom. Chock full of fun attractions for kids and kids at heart.
Check out the ever so popular Peter Pan’s Flight and Dumbo. But wait there’s actually two Dumbo rides.
Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, off to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train we go. You definitely will want a Fastpass + for this popular mine cart roller coaster. Otherwise, expect a bit of a wait.
Another top attraction that Fastpasses will vanish early for is Enchanted Tales with Belle. No Beast here. The kids will love this, as will the adults. Since all children have a chance to participate and then meet Belle.
Plenty of meet and greets at the Pete’s Silly Sideshow. Also, meet the little mermaid at Ariel’s Grotto. Near the Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid ride.
Lots for the little ones, including the Mad Tea Party and Winnie the Pooh or the fun but somewhat maddening It’s a Small World. I can’t stop singing that song.
Hey adults! Have a seat and enjoy Mickey’s PhilharMagic 3D attraction.
Let’s not forget Cinderella’s Royal Table. The grandest of character meals. If you can manage to snag a reservation. Sells out instantly.
Home of the Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. This is one cool interactive ride.
Space Mountain…wow I still vividly remember riding this at my first visit to Magic Kingdom many, many years ago. The best of the Magic Kingdom rides.
Ready for a scenic tour or just need to get off your feet. Check out the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover. Also, there’s the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor.
Nostalgic…there’s the Carousel of Progress.
Grand finale is the fireworks nighttime spectacular, Happily Ever After. It is beyond words. Everyone should experience this at least once in their lifetime at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
Remember to make time for the entertainment, parades, bands, fireworks, etc…. All that makes Magic Kingdom at Disney World… magical. Come live the magic.
