Kingdom is the original (and some say best) Disney park in Florida. It
first opened in 1971, and is divided into 6 'Worlds', arranged around
the 'hub' of Cinderella's Castle.
of our guests it's the most memorable of the parks, so we recommend that
you plan to spend a couple of days here if you really want to get to see
all of it.
As you enter
the Magic Kingdom, you come into Main Street USA, an replica 1900 street
and square lined with shops and City Hall and leading to the dreaming
spires of the beautiful Cinderella's Castle at the end of the street.
Once you reach the end of Main Street USA (some guests even take a couple
of hours to get down it!), you're faced with the first of many choices.
Do you walk onward to explore Cinderella's Castle? Or do you head straight
for on of the 6 'Worlds' in Magic Kingdom to really start your fun?
Make sure that, during your visit, you schedule a time to be on Main Street
USA for one of the parades. They're a magical way to start the day or
to end it with one of the light parades.
You can also
get a schedule (from Town Square) to find out where to meet and greet
the Disney characters like Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and many more.
you decide - the fun starts here!

Tips for Guests
The original (and biggest) of the Disney parks - so be sure to wear comfortable
shoes and take some sun-block with you. We recommend that you also use
the lockers (located near the entrance/exit) which will make it easier
for you to enjoy the park.
We recommend that all guests use the FASTPASS machines to plan their times
on the 2 or 3 rides at Disney MGM. If you want to avoid the majority of
the crowds, without using the FASTPASS machines, then get to the park
early, work out which rides you want to see most, and then plan a time
to see them when most guests are having their lunch at the park (between
12 noon and 2:00pm).
Arrive as early as you can, as many rides have BIG lines during busy times.
The one's that get really busy are Tower of Terror, Muppet 3D, The Great
Movie Ride and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.
We also recommend that you plan 2 days at Magic Kingdom to be sure to
get the most from the park. Plan it like a campaign - be sure to get the
park map with all of the attractions, then use our table on the left to
figure which rides and attractions are 'must see' features for your family
- then plan each day accordingly, spreading the BIG rides and attractions
over the 2 days.
Check out the tip board first thing. There's one near to the entrance
(ask where it is). Here you can plan you day be finding the waiting times
for popular attractions/rides, the times for that day's parades and shows,
and which (if any) rides are closed.
Most attractions, restaurants, shops and shows are fully accessible to
guests using wheelchairs and walking assistance devices. Additional services
are available for guests with visual or hearing disabilities.
For a detailed overview of the services offered, including transportation,
parking, attraction access, and more, collect a copy of the Guidebook
for Guests with Disabilities at Guest Relations.
Travel on Highway 192 to the Disney World Drive exit, and then follow
