Magic Kingdom Guide

Magic Kingdom is the place where fairytale fantasy becomes reality for children of all ages!

The first ever park to open at what is now the Walt Disney World Resort, Magic Kingdom is the world's most visited theme park.

With Disney World’s iconic Cinderella Castle at its centre, the original Disney park has 6 themed lands to explore, with classic attractions, enchanting fireworks, musical parades and beloved Disney characters all waiting for you!

Wondering why more than 18 million visitors come to Magic Kingdom every year? Well, here's a snippet for you!

About Disney's Magic Kingdom

Disney's Magic Kingdom is made up of 6 lands:

Main Street USA and Tomorrowland

Main Street USA

Emerge from the tunnel under the Walt Disney World Railroad and find yourself in a turn-of-the-century American town square!

Here you can:

  • Enjoy the zany Main Street Trolley Show
  • Have your hair cut in an authentic barber’s shop
  • Buy anything from hats to fireman souvenirs
  • …and so much more!

 Insider Tip

Main Street USA’s “City Hall” is actually Magic Kingdom’s Guest Relations.

Tomorrowland

This sci-fi inspired, galactic community is a constantly-evolving vision of the future as if glimpsed from the 1920s and ‘30s.

Inhabited by robots, aliens and humans, Tomorrowland is home to the famous Space Mountain ride.

Fantasyland and Frontierland

Fantasyland

The most popular land in the Magic Kingdom!

Fantasyland’s fairytale charm makes it a particular favourite with young children, and no wonder! In this magical land kids can:

  • Fly over Never Never Land with Peter Pan
  • Glide through the pages of a storybook with Winnie the Pooh
  • Take part in Snow White’s scary escapades
  • And many more exciting fairytale adventures!

Frontierland

Step right into the old-time Wild West, complete with wooden sidewalks, rustic log cabins, honky-tonk saloon bars, shootin’ galleries and dance halls!

Frontierland is where you’ll find some of Magic Kingdom’s most popular rides, like Splash Mountain and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Adventureland and Liberty Square

Adventureland

Part jungle, part tropical island, and with a desert oasis thrown in for good measure; as soon as you enter this section of Magic Kingdom you can tell that this is going to be an adventure!

  • Visit Aladdin on your own flying carpet
  • Walk through the treehouse home of the Swiss Family Robinson
  • Cruise down the Nile, Congo or Amazon rivers
  • Meet the Pirates of the Caribbean and much more!

Liberty Square

Visit Colonial America circa 1776 and explore Liberty Square to see:

  • Plenty of quaint shops and cobblestone streets
  • An impressive replica of the Liberty Bell
  • The Liberty Tree – an immense 135 year-old oak tree decorated with 13 lanterns to symbolise the USA’s first 13 colonies

Magic Kingdom Facts

Magic Kingdom Opening Hours

 Opens: 9am
Closes: 6pm - Midnight (depending on the time of year)

If you need to know times for a specific date, we recommend checking with the park just before you visit.

Magic Kingdom Parking

  • Magic Kingdom has a huge paid parking area near Disney World’s Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC)
  • Once you have parked, you can take a tram to the TTC
  • From there, board the monorail (faster) or a ferryboat (windier but more relaxing!) into the Magic Kingdom park

 Parking Tip 1

The car park is so huge - parking, waiting for the tram and queuing at the TTC can take a little while, so ensure you arrive with plenty of time to spare!

Parking Prices:

Car or Motorcycle

  $20

Preferred Parking

  $40

Other Vehicles

  $22

 Parking Tip 2

Once you’ve paid for parking at one Walt Disney World park, you can park at any of the other parks for free that day.

Staying at a Disney hotel?

If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can park at Epcot park for free. Just make sure you have a valid Key to the World Card or Resort Parking Permit.

 Parking Tip 3

The car parks at Disney World are BIG! Make sure you don’t lose your car by writing your row and lot number on something that won't run if it gets wet.

If you do forget where you’ve parked, find a car park tram driver and let them know the approximate time you arrived - they should be able to direct you to the right area.

 Parking Tip 3

Park at Epcot for less walking, jump on the Monorail which is there and ride it 1 stop to the TTC, from where you can take a 2nd monorail straight into the Magic Kingdom!

Directions to Magic Kingdom

  • The Disney World Resort is in southwest Orlando, west of Florida’s Turnpike off Interstate 4.
  • For Epcot, take Exit 64 from Interstate 4.

 Address: 1180 Seven Seas Dr, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830, USA
