quintessential Disney Park, the Magic Kingdom is to us and many others, the most exciting
and exhilarating part of Walt Disney World. From the moment you step onto Main
Street USA, you are transported to a place where the cares of the outside world seem to
magically melt away.
The park is built on a wheel/spoke design with the Cinderella Castle in
the center of the wheel and the different themed lands emanating from the center.
Join us as we take a
look at this special park and its attractions up close and personal with pictures, videos
and descriptions. Choose a land to visit!

Magic Kingdom sits on 107 acres with the towering Cinderella
Castle at its center. Similar to Disneyland in California, the park is
divided into seven themed lands -- Main Street, U.S.A.; Adventureland;
Frontierland; Liberty Square; Fantasyland; Mickey's Toontown Fair; and
Cinderella Castle, the park's icon, stands 189 feet tall and includes 18
towers. Inside its main hall, five glittering mosaics created under the
direction of Dorothea Redmond and Hanns-Joachim Scharff tell the story of
Cinderella in 500 brilliant hues of glass.
Walt's dream was realized when Magic Kingdom, the first of four theme parks at
the sprawling Florida site, opened Oct. 1, 1971. Walt's older brother and
lifelong business partner, Roy O. Disney, inaugurated the park with a heartfelt
dedication that remains today on a bronze plaque in Main Street, U.S.A.:
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.
