Most people’s image of Disney is encompassed in a mere 142 acres of pure enchantment. The first theme park at Walt Disney World® Resort, Magic Kingdom® is a kid’s fantasy of marvelous themed lands created to charge the imagination of young and old alike. Around every corner is a vision bound to take the breath away, one that’s guaranteed to draw you back time and time again. Cinderella Castle, the park’s visual magnet, hits you square in the face as you walk under the train station and into a world of make-believe with all the glory of Main Street, U.S.A.® spread out before you and that fairytale castle at the end. Get ready for the time of your life!
An expanded Fantasyland area opened in 2013 with a very popular Be Our Guest Restaurant located in the Beast’s enchanted castle as well as quick-service fare at Gaston’s Tavern. Here in this area of the park you’ll be able to meet and greet Disney princesses in Princess Fairytale Hall, and become part of a Beauty and the Beast storytelling experience at Enchanted Tales with Belle. Not to mention Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid as well as an expanded Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction offering double capacity. And perhaps best of all is a race through a diamond mine on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Fantasyland's newest attraction.
The compact Magic Kingdom consists of six bewitching lands accessed by five bridges leading from a central hub in front of Cinderella Castle. Travel down Main Street, U.S.A.® to reach the hub from the front entrance. Moving counterclockwise around the hub you first encounter the bridge to Tomorrowland®. The second and third bridges take you to the Fantasyland® Area, the fourth to Liberty Square Area and the Frontierland® Area, and the fifth brings you to the Adventureland® Area.
