Magic Kingdom Park Description
No doubt it sounds corny, but if fairy tales came true, they would have to look like the Magic Kingdom. Kids are wowed by this living, breathing fantasyland, a place where princesses roam the streets (flowing gowns, tiaras, and all) and pirates actually say "Arrghhh." The rides are the trademark, and most folks are bowled over by the talking birds, the rocket rides, and the animatron-inhabited jungle. But there's something to be said for grabbing some cotton candy, pulling up a chair on Main Street, U.S.A.® Area and just soaking it all in. A day outside of the real world? That's the fairy tale.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Sure-fire favorites include Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger and zooming around the Indy Speedway. But perhaps the most magical moment of all for toddlers: walking down the Main Street, U.S.A.® area from the park entrance and seeing Cinderella's Castle unfold before their eyes.
School-Age Kids: Those not ready for big thrills will love the Pirates of the Caribbean® attraction and the Haunted Mansion® attraction. They'll also love the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor attraction, an interactive show hosted by Mike Wazowski.
Pre-Teens & Teens: Head for the mountains -- Space, Splash, and Big Thunder.
- Stake your claim. Make time for a daytime parade and the fireworks show at night. Visitors start lining up well in advance for both. Find a spot early if a front-row seat is important for the parade (prime shady spots can be found under trees and Main Street, U.S.A. shop canopies).
- Take the rail. The Walt Disney World Railroad is a great way to move from one section of the park to another. It's usually not crowded and gives the whole family a chance to sit down and relax while getting a feel for the entire park.

I have been coming to Disney since it opened 1971 and my son has been going since he was a 4 month old since 1987 and now I am planning my Grand daughters first trip in December 2010 I can not wait. Disney feels like our home away from home now. Fun to talk about past years and what has changed. Eat at our favorite places Liberty Tree Tavern for Lunch etc. I remember the Sky way, Mr. Toads Wild Ride and E tickets. But look forward to The new things up and coming. Keeps it interesting yet brings back very fond memories. Love how clean it always is and how nice all the cast members are. You feel safe taking your kids there. Love it Love it. Read More

The fireworks were breath taking.
This past summer of 2009 i had went to floridas disney world. we stood at the All star resort. My boyfriend of nearly 3 years and our 1 year old son. we were just going down for a wedding my bff and sons godmother was a disney kid she has went to both world and land in California. It was mine and my boyfriends first time so of course not being a kid it was just a WEDDING i was going to. But all of that changed once we were there. I felt like a piece of my childhood came back to life inside of me the whole stay in Disney was great. I thought nothing could get better and then ... We arrived at the Magic kingdom and oh was it beautiful we ended up staing there well into the night and the fire works it was art it was art in the sky the lights the parades i had never seen anything so amazing it was like the grinch getting a heart my experience was great and i cant wait to go back!!!!

Went to Magic Kingdom in March 09.... First major family vaction for us an the kids. I am 25, with 2 kids 6&3, and my husband is 30. This was the first time for us all, and let me tell you dreams do come true no matter your age. We booked our week vacation through a company, we ended up staying off Disney resorts but we were only 30 mins at the most away from the parks so that was fine, had hopper passes for all 4 main parks,and spent a total of $1,000.00 for that. We were very pleased for that part. Magic Kingdom was the first place we went. We loved how you got a FREE pin when you paid for parking the kids thought that was SO fun, to take the stub up to the right area and get a free gift. I would tell anyone with kids to go during none peak months as stated we went in March, be one of the first ones there and sometimes you get chosen for special gifts or treatments. We got a survery book to do and sent it in and they sent us a $25.00 gift card to the Disney store:. Another cool trick if your kids are into trains, if you ask the gate keeper at the Montorails if you can sit with the drivers, they will let you and the kids get a little card afterward.. My 5 year old boy LOVED it. Plus being there early the lines are not long at all they started to pick up around 12:00-1:00, just the right time to leave for lunch and nap, and then come back. if your tickets allow that As a special thing for the kids we ate lunch once at each park just so we could say we did:, but other days we would leave,and grab lunch off the grounds, and go back to the hotel for lunch and naps which you all will need, plus it is alot CHEAPIER:..We also learned that stollers are much cheaper at a discount store, we rented one from Magic Kingdom one time and then we went and brought one from a store. Also pack a bag. I brought a backpack, with wipes, water, gummie snacks, and little things like that cause you know how kids are they are always hugry, so that worked out great. They do fully check all baggage, but nothing was said about anything we brought it. Should have said sooner the opening show before the park opens is so cool, but remember the train and show people come out in the middle of the lot, and everyone wants to get there but when its over they will knock you down to get in the park first so stay by the park gates, you can see all the show people once you get it:.. If your like me and said " I cant leave Disney without some Mickey ears" prepare to pay for them $21.00 not including taxes....The firework shows are very good. The only thing I did not like was prices of things but I was excepting them:, but other then that Magic Kingdom was my favorite out of them all..I was like a kid at some moments I could feel my eyes tear up abit when the kids would meet Mickey or Minnie, I mean come on I waited 26 years to go to Disney, and I cant wait until we can go back someday...Hope your dreams come true soon also:.....
