“What to say, its Disney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Not sure anyone needs a detailed review on Magic Kingdom - ITS DISNEY. Kids, adults, everyone enjoys it as long as they dont get into a huge hurry and try to do everything in one day.

The Magic Kingdom is awesome! Best rides are Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain. I really enjoyed going here, because this is the heart of disney. Haunted Mansion is awesome! All of the rides are awesome actually.

“Best park there is”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

If you go Orlando, you need to visit this. We have a 2.5 and 6 month old and they both could ride 75% of the rides in Magic Kingdom. There is so much to do we still didnt complete everything in 2 8+ hour days!

One piece of advice, the tram may have a longer line (so it seems), but it definitely is faster than the Ferry. There are times when the ferry has trouble so you may get stuck for sometime. Nevertheless, its still a fun ride and has better views.

“Disney's new fastpass rules are unfair to guests staying outside park we just cancelled 2 week stay”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

“New Disney new Fast pass rules just made me cancell a 14 day summer vacation never to return again”

This would have been our 6th summer trip to Disney over the years I was booking our coming summer 2 week stay at Disney. Then we told about this new rule change to fast passes which used to make the day worth spending in Disney parks.
We stay outside the park when we go in a RV park just outside Disney grounds. The new changes to the fast pass has really made the whole Disney experience now not worth doing anymore. It takes away the freedoms and penalizes guests who don't sleep in Disney hotels by limiting fast passes per day. Now I am limited to 3 fast passes per day per guest (WHEN I WAS ABLE TOGET UP TO 7 PER DAY) plus now I have to stand in line to get in the park, then stand in another line once in the park to book/schedule my 3 fast passes prior to doing anything along with 100s of people who get to the park early like we do to get a jump on the crowds that is if all the attractions have not been scheduled already or booked up by the hotel guests who can schedule anytime they want prior to arriving at the park.
Ya see hotel guests can schedule their fast passes anytime and the more expensive hotel you stay in the more fast passes those guests can receive up to 5 or 6 per park per day.
So for us now the whole Disney experience is shaking down everyone for more money and we are so done with all of this. Costs go up services and benefits go down. Say bye bye Disney we are heading to Branson Mo, to spent the 3 grand we would have spent in your park over that 2 weeks. We had enough of this every year gets less and less I am sure Walt would not allow this fast deal on his guests. After making reservations to spend 2 weeks there I just called and cancelled them at the RV park and all the RV parks in Florida we planned on staying and I lost money doing so, but even so for my family it will not be worth what we spend and what we cant do anymore. We knew If we went through with buying the 10 day passes at $1600.00 from Disney for 4 people we would have ended up being so annoyed being at the park not being able to use the fast passes like we used to all those years under old fast pass system....................Good reddens Disney corporation! Never again.
