How could you give anything other than 5 Stars to this magical place?! My husband and I have been season passholders for 7 years, and every time we go we always have a great time. We do avoid going in the summer & during school breaks, I can't imagine waiting in line in the scorching heat & overwhelming crowds. We... More

That feeling when you walk through the gates, and down Main Street, with the castle in front of you is amazing! We went in August and it was vey hot, but lots of air conditioned places to cool down for a bit. FP is excellent, and if you can, book them before you go. We hit the park early for... More

This really is the most Magical Place on Earth. My husband and I travel to WDW yearly with and without the kids. Without fail every single time we walk into Magic Kingdom we instantly transform into kids ourselves. The Cast Members are absolutely terrific and always go out of their way to make your day the best it can be.... More

This park is very out dated. I do not feel it has been updated since the early 70's. The rides are all boat with little wooden dolls bobbing around. They do not use any special effects or animation. The only thing to be updated here is the prices. It is now over 100 bucks a ticket to get in and... More

all the parks are being upgraded at once and therefore your not getting the full Disney experience the huge boards they put up on building sites is what there all like and you have to walk through these maze like boards to get to a bit that's open so disappointing should do one park at once even downtown Disney is...

Out of all of the Disney World Theme Parks, Magic Kingdom is the most "magical." When you enter you see Cinderella Castle from Main Street USA, and its just an awesome sight to see. There are also many different sections in this park including Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Liberty Square, Adventureland, and Frontierland. Also, this park has the most rides and a... More

I have been coming to disney since I was 18 months old. Every time I have been Magic Kingdom has been the best part of my trip. There is much to do it's untrue, I honestly can't wait to come back even if I don't have children myself.

I have been going to the Magic Kingdom since I was in grade school a looooong time ago. Somehow Disney seems to keep everything looking fresh and clean after all of these years!

Just a comment on this review..If your family really wanted to go to DIsney, and you made the mistake of going during the VERY BUSIEST of peak periods...then "why did you not go back once you learned that you screwed up"? I am sorry, but in today's technological age, there are thousands of articles, both expert and fan written about the best and worst times to go to DIsney- regardless of the fact that it is advertised that December 20-31 WILL BE EXTREMELY busy, people still go-why? I guess the magic of the season. For my wife and I, with no kids, we choose to go when we can best enjoy it, during slower seasons. I guess the article struck a nerve with me, because the entire "negative overtone and experience" has -0- (nothing, nada, zip) to do with the park istelf, it was strictly the crowds that made your trip horrible. "God forbid you should stop on the sidewalks"...you have THOUSANDS of people moving during parades up and down the sides, its a safety issue to keep moving!- don't blame DIsney, if you had been trampled by a crowd moving forward, I am sure that would have been DIsney's fault as well! The parks are EXCEPTIONALLY WELL RUN, even during Parades when most parks just halt traffic, DIsney finds a way to allow people to get to one end or the other without issue. I guess the only "UNREAL" part of this review, was the fact that you chose the busiest days during the year to go, and expected the same guest experience that you would have in September, right after back to school...THAT EXPECTATION IS "UNREAL"... I do agree with one part of your review, the fighting of the crowds...I have been going to Disney parks since the age of 3, and have been over 100 times to both Disneyland and DIsneyworld parks on both coasts...and back in the 60s, 70s and even 80's- people IN GENERAL were well behaved, and Disney brought out their best behavior. But in todays society, with so many SELF CENTERED INDIVIDUALS, and an exhorbinate number of foreign tourists that are about as well mannered as an abused pit bull..These people DO ruin the experience with their lack of manners and courtesy, but THAT comes ANY time of the year, busy or otherwise. So TRY to convince the family to do DIsney again some day...Take note from Disney AND many people online that can give you first hand experience on when to go. ANd take an OPEN mind with you when you do... I can tell you from experience, that mid January, or Mid September are EXCELLENT Times, in which we usually get on every attraction within 10 minutes, many with no wait at all- now the parks are not open as many hours, BUT, Disney has perfected the system, of gauging the time needed to visit the entire park in one visit, by the crowd size reflecting the hours they operate, so a 9am to 7pm day can be even better than an 8am to midnight day, because in 99 percent of the cases, you will find those short days have NO one to fight over space with! Have a magical new year everyone!
