“Disney Magic Kingdom still has the magic! A "don't miss" at least once in your life....especially with a family with kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Family memories and an unforgettable experience are the top two reasons to go to Disney, but watch your wallets because it doesn't come cheap. If you can afford to go for more than a few days, the rates are more affordable per day, but of course you'll be spending a lot more money while in the parks. We did just 1 day Magic Kingdom as a family of 5. Cost was over $540 just to get in! OVERALL we had a great time and have great memories.

“Amazing Again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

It was so amazing again. I loved the night show and took tons of pictures. I have been here twice and loved it even better this time. No matter your age, Disney is simply magical. A must see if you visit Orlando

“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

I have never been a fan of modern day Disney but agreed to have a big family holiday in Kissimmee celebrating the 3rd birthday of our only grandchild. The day started with breakfast with Winnie and friends as we celebrated a 3rd birthday. As we had reservations for breakfast we were able to gain access to the park before the daily crowds, which gave the bonus of getting some decent photographs of Main Street and the Disney castle. The breakfast experience was 1st class. We were greeted at the door and escorted to our table where our waiter kept us well supplied with fresh florida orange juice and coffee. The food part of the breakfast was via a huge buffet, with lots of healthy choices alongside the usual fare- everything being named after Disney characters. The stars of the show, Winnie, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger made their way around all of the tables, taking time with each child(and quite a number of adults) to make sure they were confortable and were happy posing for photographs.
After breakfast we spent the rest of the day touring the park, enjoying the rides and various experiences. The park was spotless and the staff plentiful and well trained. There is a "fast pass" in operation for most of the shows and rides which means shorter times in queues. A really nice touch is that if you have someone celebrating a birthday, a badge can be obtained from guest services, then all members of staff that come into contact with the "birthday" person wish them a happy birthday by name. Our 3 year old and her parents were delighted by this touch.
My cynicism about the Disney money making machine is still there but I have to admit that we had a really good day and came away in the evening feeling glad that we had visited just once.

It's Disney World, do I need to say anything else?! You gotta experience this once in your life, at least!

“A must for children...but a full on day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This is a unique place and has to be visited at least once in a lifetime. Brilliantly laid out, and spotlessly clean. Extremely busy everytime I've been. With the crowds, the size of the park and the hot humid weather this can be the most exhausting of all the parks. As with all the parks food and drink is expensive. We froze a couple of bottles of water and brought them with us as well as a couple of bottles of cold water. Keeps the bag cool, and by the end of the day has melted and you still have cold water.
