Magic Kingdom Basics
Walt Disney World is a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney… and to the talents, the dedication, and the loyalty of the entire Disney organization that made Walt Disney’s dream come true. May Walt Disney World bring Joy and Inspiration and New Knowledge to all who come to this happy place … a Magic Kingdom where the young at heart of all ages can laugh and play and learn together.Roy O. Disney, October 25, 1971
The Magic Kingdom was the very first theme park to open in Walt Disney World on the 1st October 1971. Today it is the most popular theme park in the World. It often attracts large crowds and has a maximum capacity of 100,000 which is often reached on Major National Holidays.
The park’s icon is the blue & gold turreted Cinderella Castle which rises 189 feet above the park’s 142 acres. Despite its appearance, there isn’t a single brick in the castle with the whole structure being made of fiberglass.
Magic Kingdom’s layout and attractions are based on Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. Although Walt Disney was heavily involved in the planning for Walt Disney World, the Magic Kingdom did not open until after his death.
On opening, there were 23 attractions in The Magic Kingdom, several of which are still open today.
Traditionally alcohol was forbidden in the Magic Kingdom.
In 2012 Be Our Guest became the first venue in the Magic Kingdom to sell alcohol but all other restaurants remained dry.
Recently other table service restaurants in the Magic Kingdom have started to sell a small quantity of alcohol. However; the Epcot drinking culture is unlikely to appear at The Magic Kingdom anytime soon.
As the World’s Largest Theme Park, The Magic Kingdom has a lot of history and some interesting statistics, eg did you know that Prince Charming Regal Carousel was built in 1917 and was once located at Olympic Park in Maplewood, New Jersey?

Planning Your Visit to The Magic Kingdom
To experience the Magic Kingdom you should spend time planning your experience. The Magic Kingdom is the World’s most popular theme park and arriving without a plan can reduce the enjoyment of your day. It is unlikely you will manage to do all you want in just a 1-day visit.
There are key booking windows to secure dining reservations and make ride reservations. We will guide you through all the Essential Magic Kingdom “knowledge you need to enjoy your vacation.
Magic Kingdom Park Hours
Park hours usually get released about 6 months in advance. However, they often change as you come closer to the actual date! Usually this is too longer hours than initially announced. Click the link to get all the latest Walt Disney World Park Hours.
Refurbishments & Closures
Walt Disney World is constantly changing and it almost inevitable there will be some refurbishments & closures whenever you visit. This handy guide to see all the current refurbishments and closures
Fastpass+ is Disney’s attraction reservation system & allows you to book attractions in advance of your visit.
It is essential you understand Fastpass+ before your visit and the key booking windows. Failing to make Fastpass+ reservations will mean longer lines and completing fewer attractions.
We have created a guide to Fastpass+ at the Magic Kingdom which has tips & tricks to help plan your day.
Before planning, attractions make sure everyone who wants to is big enough to ride. Disney enforces height limits rigidly. Not big enough to ride will equal a lost Fastpass.
- Tomorrowland Speedway 32″ of 54″ to drive
- The Barnstormer 35″
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train 38″
- Big Thunder Mountain 40″
- Splash Mountain 40″
- Space Mountain 44″
- Plus if it ever reopens again Stitch’s Great Escape is 40″
However, if the kids are too small to ride it does not mean adults and older siblings can’t. Rider Switch, also sometimes known as child swap, allows guests with small children to take turns riding while another adult stays with the child.
Our Guide to Rider Switch & Height Restrictions has all the information you need to know.
No matter when you visit the Magic Kingdom there will be crowds. Sometimes the crowds will be light but on occasion, they might feel unmanageable.
However, you can still have a great day in the Magic Kingdom even when it is crowded.
Why not put a few extra park hours into your Magic Kingdom Plan? Wouldn’t it be even better if there were fewer guests?
Guests of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels & select non-Disney owned resorts can enjoy extra time in the Magic Kingdom several days each week. Extra Magic Hours occur either before parks open or after they close to regular guests.
However; remember there are 30000 hotel rooms in WDW so that is a lot of people who can attend! If you are not staying at a Disney Resort in our opinion, you should avoid parks with Extra Magic Hours.
You can find out more in our Guide to Extra Magic Hours including tips on whether you should consider attending.
Plus, following the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge there will be Extra Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom every morning from September 1- November 2.
Dining at The Magic Kingdom
While it might be the busiest and possibly best theme park in the World, The Magic Kingdom is not known for its outstanding culinary options.
In my opinion, The Magic Kingdom probably offers the worse choice of dining options at all 4 Walt Disney World parks. While you will not go hungry, it is unlikely you will experience a sensational meal.
There is a selection of quick service, table service & signature locations at the Magic Kingdom. There are also various food carts serving a wide range of snacks. Table Service locations at the Magic Kingdom fill up fast & it is essential you arrange an Advanced Dining Reservation prior to your visit.
To learn more about Dining at Disney World visit our guide.
Meeting Characters at The Magic Kingdom
Many of us will spend time while in the Magic Kingdom meeting characters & those with children are likely to spend considerable time doing so.
The Magic Kingdom is home to many of the classic Disney Characters. In the Magic Kingdom you are likely to meet Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, Aladdin, Tinkerbell, Ariel, Cinderella & many more. Meet and greets do vary throughout the year and rare characters appear at both Halloween & Christmas parties.
As part of Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Celebration, different characters are appearing on Main Street each day. Characters to date have included Phineas and Ferb, Robin Hood and Little John, Nick and Judy from “Zootopia”.
Information on what characters are meeting is available on the My Disney Experience App. You can cut waits to see some of the most popular characters by getting a Fastpass, but it is not available for all characters.
Remember if you don’t want to spend time waiting for characters there are other ways to see many of your favorites including watching parades. Our How To Find Characters in Walt Disney World Guide has further information including top character spotting tips.
Character Meals at The Magic Kingdom
Character meals offer an extra opportunity to meet some of your idols. In the Magic Kingdom there are 2 Character Meals:
- Crystal Palace buffet meal with Winnie the Pooh and friends.
- Cinderella’s Royal Table set upstairs inside Cinderella Castle. Characters do vary but you can expect to meet Cinderella, Ariel, Aurora & Snow White.
In addition, although not strictly a character meal, the Beast meets guests after dinner at Be Our Guest. Our Guide to Character Meals at Walt Disney World has further information.
Useful Information when visiting the Magic Kingdom

WiFi is now available throughout the Magic Kingdom. There are occasional black spots eg in lines but coverage is almost universal within the park. However, we have noticed the service is less reliable when parks are busiest.
Having access to WiFi allows you to plan your day through the My Disney Experience App including making additional Fastpass+ reservations.
Lost & Found at the Magic Kingdom
It is easy to lose things at the Magic Kingdom, but perhaps amazingly things often do get found!
If you lose anything it is important to report it straight away. Information on how to report your lost items is located here. If you need any assistance speak to a cast member or visit guest services.

The Lands at The Magic Kingdom
The Magic Kingdom is split into 6 themed lands. Previously there was a 7th land called Mickey’s Toontown Fair which merged into New Fantasyland during 2012 expansions.
The Walt Disney World Railroad circles around the entire 1.5-mile perimeter of the park and will make stops at Main Street, Frontierland, and Fantasyland.
Main Street, USA
Main Street USA is the first land you enter once heading through the gates of The Magic Kingdom. It is based on an early 20th-century small American town. The street is lined with shops selling merchandise and food. Most guest service facilities are located on Main Street.
There are various characters that you can meet on Main Street but the most famous are Mickey Mouse and Tinkerbell which are found in the Town Square Theater. During 2019 Minnie is also meeting with Mickey in special party outfits!
On occasions; period transportation is available to take guests along Main Street to the Central Plaza. Main Street forms part of the parade route at The Magic Kingdom. The circular area around the Central Plaza is one of the most popular spots to watch parades and fireworks. The Central Plaza spokes out to the other lands of The Magic Kingdom.
The following dining locations are on Main Street
- Casey’s Corner serving hot dogs and fries.
- Crystal Palace has a character buffet with Winnie the Pooh & Friends which serves breakfast, lunch & dinner.
- Main Street Bakery featuring Starbucks Coffee
- Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
- Plaza Restaurant table service sandwiches. Perhaps one of the worse value locations on the Disney Dining Plan
- Tony’s Town Square Restaurant which seems to be universally disliked but actually I quite like it.
Frontierland is the home to the American Old West of the 19th century. It forms part of the parade route and often quieter spots are found here compared to Main Street USA.
The Current attractions in Frontierland are
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad a mine-train wild roller coaster. Very popular attraction. Get a Fastpass to avoid long waits. Make sure you ride it in the dark when it becomes a sensational dark ride.
- Country Bear Jamboree a stage show with audio-animatronic figures. A sort of Disney Classic but really only serves as a place to get out the heat or have a mid-afternoon nap.
- Splash Mountain a classic log flume ride based on Song of the South & 1 of the best water rides in Orlando. Another for Fastpass or expect long waits.
- Tom Sawyer Island I have never actually been here! Perhaps I will this summer. You take a journey by log raft to embark on a self-guided expedition into the heart of early America.
- Walt Disney World Railroad
Restaurant and refreshment stops at Frontierland include
- Diamond Horseshoe open seasonally as a table service buffet. Food includes BBQ pulled pork, sliced turkey, country smoked sausage or carved beef brisket.
- Golden Oak Outpost chicken nuggets
- Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café Mexican inspired counter service
- Westward Ho
- Aunt Polly’s Dockside Inn food stand located on Tom Sawyer Island
Themed after colonial America, Liberty Square is found in no other Disneyland Theme Park. Replicas of both the Liberty Bell and Liberty Tree are located in Liberty Square. Liberty Square is the smallest land in the Magic Kingdom.
Liberty Square is the only land in the Magic Kingdom not to have had a major refurbishment since the park opened. All the opening attractions still exist in Liberty Square.
Current attractions are
- The Hall of Presidents a stage presentation of all the presidents in Audio-Animatronic form. Recently reopened with President Trump.
- Haunted Mansion classic Haunted House ride. Do not think this is the same type of haunted house you get at a traveling fair. The attraction is very impressive and should not be missed.
- Liberty Square Riverboat
- The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History opened in October 2016. Features Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and Sam Eagle.
The following dining locations are located in Liberty Square
- Columbia Harbour House serving fish and chicken.
- Liberty Tree Tavern family style Thanksgiving-themed meal. Plenty of food but not necessarily the best quality in Walt Disney World.
- Sleepy Hollow
Part tropical island, part jungle Adventureland takes us back to dreamt adventures of the past. It is divided into two sub-areas the Arabian Village and the Caribbean Plaza.
Current attractions are:
- Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room another Disney Classic which offers an excuse to escape the heat. The attraction was originally featured in Disneyland and was an opening day attraction at Walt Disney World.
- Jungle Cruise is a commentated (mildly) humorous riverboat ride past audio-animatronic animals. A Disney classic attraction which is very popular and needs a Fastpass when the park is busy. Perhaps surprisingly this ride is better in the dark.
- Magic Carpets of Aladdin similar to Dumbo but you ride a carpet & might get wet.
- Pirates of the Caribbean the ride the film is based on is now based on the film!…. Confused? Jack wasn’t in the original attraction he is now. The attraction has gone through various modifications over the years the latest being in March 2018 with the introduction of Redhead Pirate.
- Swiss Family Treehouse climbing and exploring. Kids love this and it is very clever. A really good option when the park is crowded.
Dining options include
- Aloha Isle Refreshments serving the legendary Dole Whips.
- Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen based on the Jungle Cruise this new restaurant is becoming a favourite.
- Sunshine Tree Terrace serving citrus swirl
- Tortuga Tavern
If one land signifies what people think of when they think Disney World it is likely it is Fantasyland.
The area went through a large expansion between 2012 and 2014 including the addition of new attractions. In the past, many visitors to Fantasyland may have left a little disappointed but now it reaches the levels of dreams.
- Ariel’s Grotto meet Ariel as a Mermaid
- Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid a new dark ride which is becoming a firm favourite. Perhaps the best dark ride in Disney World.
- Enchanted Tales with Belle guest participation and tales with Belle. Not a personal Favourite but kids do enjoy it. This one does get very busy & Fastpass often runs out.
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a great little roller coaster with realistic audio-animatronics. Get a Fastpass or be ready for a very long wait.
- Mad Hatters Tea Party classical waltzer type ride.
- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh dark ride which some small children might find a little frightening. However, most guest will find it harmless bouncy fun.
- The Barnstormer is a short children’s roller coaster. It is a great introduction to coasters for small children.
- Casey Jr, Splash ‘N’ Soak Station
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant now with 2 carousels. Waits are much less than in the past.
- Pete’s Silly Sideshow meet popular Disney characters. Although subject to change since opening characters have been Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck and Goofy. However, in 2019 Pluto has now replaced Minnie!
- Walt Disney World Railroad join the fantastic railroad in Fantasyland.
- It’s a Small World the annoying tune that will not leave your head but still a Disney classic. The first incarnation of It’s a Small World debuted at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
- Mickey’s PhilharMagic 4D movie.
- Peter Pan’s Flight very popular dark ride which attracts very long waits. Get a Fastpass.
- Prince Charming Regal Carrousel is a classic beautiful carousel.
- Princess Fairytale Hall
meeta Disney Princess or 2.
Dining in Fantasyland Magic Kingdom
Dining and refreshment options in Fantasyland include:
- Be Our Guest Restaurant quick service for lunch and breakfast. Table service for dinner which was relaunched with a new menu in July 2018 as a Signature Restaurant. Guests still have the opportunity to meet Beast after dinner.

- Cinderella’s Royal Table a signature Character meal.
- Friar’s Nook chicken nuggets & hotdogs
- Gaston’s Tavern
- Pinocchio Village Haus chicken parmesan sandwich, flatbread pizzas and pasta dishes
- Prince Eric’s Village Market
- Storybook Treats Brilliant treats here! Have a chocolate pineapple on a stick. It is wonderful.
Tomorrowland is a 1950s vision of the future. Today that vision of the future looks rather odd, but Tomorrowland still has some interesting attractions. However; if time is tight you may find the attractions in Tomorrowland are the least appealing in the park.
- Astro Orbiter a shuttle faster version of Dumbo.
- Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin popular ride with all Space Cadets but unfortunately not with me. Get ready to blast your guns.
- Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor interactive cartoon comedy. Very clever this attraction & rarely attracts a wait.
- Space Mountain classic dark roller coaster. It is pretty fast. It attracts very long waits. Get a Fastpass!
- Tomorrowland Speedway ride race-cars. Despite its age, it is still a fun experience. The track has recently been shortened to make way for the new Tron Coaster.
- Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover train ride above Tomorrowland. See Walt Disney’s original vision for Epcot as you ride this attraction.
- Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress catchy theme tune, look back at history and Walt Disney designed himself. What is not to like? Plus it is cool when it is hot outside.
Dining and refreshment options at Tomorrowland are
- Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies
- Cool Ship
- Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café which is perhaps the worse place to eat in the whole of Walt Disney World.
- The Lunching Pad at Rockettower Plaza
- Tomorrowland Terrace Cafe is a seasonal restaurant & if open the park is busy. It is also the venue for the Magic Kingdom Dessert Parties.
Parades and Entertainment at The Magic Kingdom
What makes the Magic Kingdom stand out compared to your average theme park is the number of additional shows and acts you might see.
The entertainment starts each morning at the Magic Kingdom with the Let the Magic Begin welcome show which features Mickey and the Gang.
Main Street USA is always a hive of activities. During 2019 we are celebrating Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Celebration, and the Dapper Dans, the Casey’s Corner piano player, the Main Street Philharmonic and the Citizens of Main Street get into the fun with special, musical surprise moments.
Also, there are regular shows on the Castle Stage. Currently, the show is Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire & there will be seasonal overlays at certain times of the year.
The current Main Street parade is Festival of Fantasy and is usually at 3 pm. Festival of Fantasy is a beautiful parade and should not be missed.
Characters do occasionally change, but you may see up to 40 of your favorites in Festival of Fantasy. Familiar characters include Mickey, Minnie, Anna, Elsa, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, The Seven Dwarves, Tinker Bell, Peter Pan and Jiminy Cricket.
New for 2019 is the Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party which occurs several times a day down Main Street. Characters include Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Max, Pluto, Chip
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a free interactive scavenger hunt. Stop by the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A. to sign up and receive your Sorcerer Key Card, Merlin’s mystical map and spell cards.
A Pirate’s Adventure ~ Treasures of the Seven Seas is an interactive treasure hunt throughout Adventureland. You can collect details of how to participate at the Crows Nest.
Happily Ever After was the new fireworks show for 2017 replacing Wishes. This new show is the most spectacular in Magic Kingdom history and is incredibly popular.
Once Upon a Time is a nighttime spectacular that brings Cinderella’s Castle to life with projections of beloved Disney scenes and characters. Presented by Mrs Potts.
Special Events & Festivities at The Magic Kingdom During 2019
Throughout 2019 there will be regular Special Events & Festivities at The Magic Kingdom. These special events help make a Disney Vacation extra special. There are no big new attractions opening at the Magic Kingdom in 2019, but there are several limited-time events to celebrate Mickey’s 90th Birthday.
Disney After Hours at the Magic Kingdom
Disney After Hours returned in 2019 and has an enhancement for Summer 2019. This hard-ticket is limited to a small number of guests, allowing attendees to maximize their time in the park with little to no wait at 25 attractions. Unlimited ice cream, select snack and bottled drinks are included in your price.
Disney Villains will add a wicked twist to Disney After Hours event nights between June 6-August 8. The events are promising “wickedly fun villains theme, with exclusive entertainment, food & beverage, merchandise and more”.
The price for Disney Villans After Hours is slightly more expensive than regular tickets. Tickets cost $139 plus tax in advance, $144 plus tax on the event night. There is a $30 discount for annual pass holders and DVC members.
Regular Magic Kingdom After Hours will return after the summer season.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
Quite bizarrely this annual event starts on the 16th of August in 2019, and bookings are already open. Is it just me but does mid-August seem a little early to be celebrating Halloween? The event has been getting held earlier each year and started on the 17th in 2018.
There was a selection of new activities in 2018 and there are rumors of new enhancements for 2019.
Guests who decide not to visit the party will still see the park decorated for Halloween between August and October.
Christmas at The Magic Kingdom
The Magic Kingdom is transformed at Christmas with spectacular decorations & 2019 will be no different. Details of special events are usually announced late summer.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will also be making a return. This specially ticketed event will take place on select nights starting November 8. Highlights of the event in 2018 included:
- Holiday Wishes fireworks

Special events include merchandise, food, the Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party, rare character appearances and special entertainment.
Perhaps the most unique experience is this year Mickey & Minnie are meeting guests together at Town Square Theater in some rather special outfits.
News & Rumors The Magic Kingdom
The world’s busiest theme park never stays still for long. Back in 2012, we welcomed New Fantasyland. Several Magic Kingdom Updates have been announced for the next few years as it prepares for its 50th anniversary in 2021. Perhaps the biggest is the opening of a new Tron Coaster in Tomorrowland.
