Magic Kingdom


Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom is often referred to as “The Place Where Dreams Come True” and quite frankly I totally agree with that. This is Walt Disney Worlds most popular park, and of course the home of the magnificent and beautiful ‘Cinderella’s Castle’. After Walt’s success with Disneyland in California he set out to find more land to build a bigger and better park, Walt had become frustrated with the garish and often chaotic ‘neighbouring’ shops, restaurants and cheap hotels that surrounded his Californian dream.

Magic Kingdom: Walt’s Dream come True

He found just the place in Florida, along with his staff and team of architects, designers and engineers they set out to build Walt’s vision. Sadly Walt passed away in 1966, but his legacy was carried out and Magic Kingdom opened in October 1971.

It has stayed true to his visions and has taken into account Walt’s interests in the future, his years spent in the American Midwest, and his main vision of creating a magical place where parents and children can spend time together and have fun.

Magic kingdom is divided up into six main areas, referred to as ‘Lands’, these all surround the Castle and branch off in a spoke like pattern.

Your first encounter as you enter the park is “Main Street USA”, a delightful array of shops, a variety of snack foods, a wealth of live entertainment, character meetings and more, it is even complete with its own City Hall. Main Street also gives you your first glimpse of the breath taking Cinderella’s Castle and leads you all the way to it.

To the right of the Castle you have “Tomorrowland”, blast yourself into all the fun and entertainment the future has to offer, spot some of your favorites such as Buzz Lightyear, Stitch and the Monsters Inc gang.

To the left of the Castle is “Adventureland”, cross blades with swash buckling pirates, cruise deep into the jungle or take a Magic Carpet ride. Many wonderful adventures await.

Situated behind the Castle is “Fantasyland”, discover the treasures under the Sea with Ariel & friends, grab a hearty snack in ‘Gaston’s Tavern’ and admire the beautiful Beauty & The Beast Castle, be sure to make an advanced dinner or lunch reservation as the restaurant inside is truly not to be missed.

Nestled between Fantasyland and Adventureland you will find “Frontierland”, a rootin’ tootin’ fun packed area filled with entertainment and rides to suit the entire family, we set out to have 3 generations on ‘Splash Mountain’ when we visit next year!
