With Disney Holidays being one of the most highly ranked holiday destinations worldwide, I thought let’s take a look at The Magic Kingdom and what the best attractions at Magic Kingdom are.
Magic Kingdom Park is a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando, Florida. Owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company through its Parks, Experiences, and Products division, the park opened on October 1, 1971, as the first of four theme parks at the resort. So Magic Kingdom is the oldest park at Disney World.
The park was initialized by Walt Disney and designed by WED Enterprises. Its layout and attractions are based on Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and are dedicated to fairy tales and Disney characters.
When the Magic Kingdom opened its doors in 1971, so did its two themed hotels–the Polynesian Village and the Contemporary Resort.
Best Attractions At Magic Kingdom
With destinations like Main Street USA, Fantasyland, Adventureland, Liberty Square, Frontierland, Tomorrowland, and Mickey’s Toontown Fair, the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida is perhaps the most popular one of the Disney resorts.
Main Street, USA, is where you can stroll or delight in a horse-drawn streetcar and truck. Horseless carriages and the Walt Disney World Railroad are there to take you to visit Ariel’s Grotto or Cinderella’s Castle amidst other destinations like the Mad Tea Party or Mickey’s Philhar Magic.
Adventureland takes you through the remote and exotic foreign lands; be it Alladin’s Magic Carpets or the Jungle Cruise, the atmosphere is stunning and satisfying for all ages.
Called the ‘Most Magical Place on Earth’, the resort includes a few of the perpetuity greats of the animation world; Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto, all having the Disney name in common in between them.
Mickey’s Toontown Fair boasts destinations that include all of them, consisting of Donald’s Boat, The Barnstormer at Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm, and Mickey, in addition to Minnie’s, Country Houses.
To keep the various sections of the kingdom linked, yet eliminate the requirement for characters of one kingdom to go through other kingdoms, the Disney team constructed energy passages in the shape of underground tunnels, coining them as Utilidors.
The work that went into the planning of the resort is also apparent from the ‘forced viewpoint’ visual technique used in Cinderella’s Palace that makes it look much greater in size than its real 189 feet.
