The Magic Kingdom theme park was the first theme park to open at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. It opened in 1971 and has made the hopes and dreams of every boy and girl come true ever since. From the moment you walk into the park you are transported to a different day and time when life was simple and the only purpose you had was to have fun. The Magic Kingdom will certainly take you back to your childhood.
The Magic begins when you walk down
Main Street USA.
This picturesque street represents the main streets that were found in small towns across America. It takes you back to a time when life was less stressful and the way of life was simple.
The smell of fresh popped popcorn and fresh baked cookies fill the air, and they immediately put you in a happier frame of mind. When you look down Main Street toward Cinderella's Castle you suddenly believe in fairy tales and that all of your dreams can indeed come true.
Our family has our favorite rides and attractions throughout the Magic Kingdom just like I am sure your family does. These are the things that we must see and do every single time we visit the park. For Example, we always ride Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, and Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin. The children have highlighted a few of their favorites within each of the park sections listed below. As you link to these sections, you will recognize their comments by the kid commentary icons found below.
As I said earlier, these are the favorites of my family. Your family probably has their favorites too. I would love to hear what things you can't leave the Magic Kingdom without doing.
