On April 11th 2017, World Liberty TV were guests of the Walt Disney World’s (WDW) oldest (Magic Kingdom- MK) and newest (Animal Kingdom- AK) parks.
Built in 1971, MK is the world’s most visited theme park in the world. Current attendance is 20m+ every year, and rising! MK was built on a man-made hill, allowing Cast Members (CMs) and VIP guests to move unseen via underground tunnels. MK is comprised of six Lands: Main Street U.S.A, AdventureLand, FrontierLand, Liberty Square, TomorrowLand and FrontierLand.
Guests initially reach park entrance via a huge ferry, small pirate boats, 6 original monorail trains, resort shuttle buses — all of which are part of WDW’s complimentary transportation system within its vast 47sq. mile territory. Those brave enough to fight incoming (and outgoing in the evening) traffic, pay parking toll at remote gates, find a spot likely a mile away, and then await for the long golf-style trains to carry them toward security check-in and turnstyles (do yourself a favor: go green and use Disney Transportation instead!)…Once inside MK, we traveled on its exclusive mile-and-half railroad, getting on and off in at least 3 lands!
MK’s staple and pride are Disney’s original characters, welcoming MK guests throughout all lands – but especially in the Main St USA heading up to Cinderella’s Castle. Non-stop themed parades every day are crowned by renowned firework displays every night!
Our hand down favorites were Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain – without which no MK visit would be complete. Just make sure you’re good at the Fast Pass game; download the app and and make strategic appointments!
