Unlike at Disneyland Paris, weekends are usually the best time to visit, as the majority of visitors here are out-of-towners who travel on those days. This is where the world-famous Cinderella Castle is.
This park is going to really exhaust you, there is so much to see. We have been nearly every year we have visited Florida and still have not seen everything. Disney also has a habit of changing things like the show names.
Magic Kingdom is a very large and beautifully landscaped park. Disney characters wander the streets, greeting guests.
It's a place that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime, just for the nostalgic magic it offers.
Plan ahead what direction around the park you will take.
Get there early, you will be there ALL DAY.
Drink Plenty of Water.
Take your own food, Magic Kingdom can be expensive.
Park Entrance Fees:
You need a maths degree to figure out the way theme parks price their tickets, as they vary so wildly.
Choosing the cheapest day is not always the best option as the park could be a lot busier.
Keep an eye out for ticket promotions. Be careful though, if it looks too good to be true then it will be.
Consider Multi-Park tickets. Discounts are available for parks within the same organisation.
Compare buying in your own currency or in Dollars, you would be surprised.
Don't forget you have to pay "State Tax". Currently it is 6%.
