and designed by WED Enterprises, its layout and attractions are based on Disneyland
Disneyland
Park in Anaheim, California, and is dedicated to fairy tales and Disney characters. The park is represented by Cinderella Castle, inspired by the fairy tale castle seen in the 1950 film. In 2016, the park hosted 20.395 million visitors, making it the most visited theme park in the world for the eleventh consecutive year and the most visited theme park in North America for at least the past seventeen years.[1]

Dedication[edit]

Walt Disney World
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
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[2][3]

History[edit]

Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
entrance.

Although Walt Disney
Walt Disney
had been highly involved in planning the Florida Project, Walt Disney
Walt Disney
Productions began construction on Magic Kingdom and the entire resort in 1967 after his death. The park was built as a larger, improved version of Disneyland
Disneyland
Park in California. There are several anecdotes regarding some of the features of Walt Disney
Walt Disney
World, and Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
specifically. According to one story, Walt Disney once saw a Frontierland
Frontierland
cowboy walking through Tomorrowland
Tomorrowland
at Disneyland. He disliked that the cowboy intruded on the futuristic setting of Tomorrowland
Tomorrowland
and wanted to avoid situations like this in the new park.[4] Therefore, Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
was built over a series of tunnels called utilidors, a portmanteau of utility and corridor, allowing employees (called "cast members") or VIP guests to move through the park out of sight from guests. Because of Florida's high water table, the tunnels could not be put underground, so they were built at the existing grade, meaning the park is built on the second story, giving Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
an elevation of 108 feet (33 m). The area around the utilidors was filled in with dirt removed from the Seven Seas Lagoon, which was being constructed at the same time. The utilidors were built in the initial construction and were not extended as the park expanded. The tunnels were intended to be designed into all subsequent Walt Disney
Walt Disney
World parks, but were set aside mostly because of financial constraints. Future World at Epcot
Epcot
and Pleasure Island each have a smaller network of utilidors. Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
opened as the first part of the Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World
Resort on October 1, 1971, commencing concurrently with Disney's Contemporary Resort
Resort
and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. It opened with twenty-three attractions, three unique to the park and twenty replicas of attractions at Disneyland, split into six themed lands, five copies of those at Disneyland
Disneyland
(Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland) and the Magic Kingdom exclusive of Liberty Square. The Walt Disney Company
The Walt Disney Company
promised to increase this number with a combination of replicas and unique attractions. While there is no individual dedication to Magic Kingdom, the dedication by Roy O. Disney
Roy O. Disney
for the entire resort was placed within its gates. The first, and as of today, only land added to the original roster of lands in the park was Mickey's Toontown
Mickey's Toontown
Fair. The land originally opened in 1988 as Mickey's Birthdayland to celebrate Mickey Mouse's 60th birthday. Later the land was renovated as Mickey's Starland and eventually to Mickey's Toontown
Mickey's Toontown
Fair. The land was home to attractions such as Mickey's Country House, Minnie's Country House, The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm, and Donald's Boat. It closed on February 12, 2011, to make way for the expansion of Fantasyland. The Walt Disney World

Fair, which opened with Mickey's Birthdayland in 1988, was closed for the duration of the construction. In 2012, the space where Mickey's Toontown

the Flying Elephant was relocated. The Barnstormer
The Barnstormer
was retained and was re-themed to The Great Goofini.[5] Since opening day, Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
has been closed temporarily because of seven hurricanes: Floyd, Frances, Charley, Jeanne, Wilma, Matthew, and Irma.[6] It was also closed in the middle of the day on September 11, 2001, due to the terrorist attacks that day.[7] In addition, there are four "phases" of park closure when Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
exceeds capacity, ranging from restricted access for most guests (Phase 1) to full closure for everyone, even cast members (Phase 4).[8] "Magic Kingdom" was often used as an unofficial nickname for Disneyland
Disneyland
before Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World
was built. The official tagline for Disneyland
Disneyland
is "The Happiest Place On Earth", while the tagline for Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
is "The Most Magical Place On Earth". In 1994, to differentiate it from Disneyland, the park was officially renamed Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
Park, but is known as Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
or sometimes The Magic Kingdom. Like all Disney theme parks, the official name of the park does not start with an article ("the"), though it is commonly referred to that way, and a sign on the railroad station at the front of the park reads "The Magic Kingdom". Alcoholic beverages are forbidden throughout the park, unlike at other Disney attractions worldwide. In 2012, the Be Our Guest restaurant opened selling wine and beer for the first time. This was the only place in the park where alcohol was permitted until December 2016 when four additional restaurants began selling beer and wine including Cinderella's Royal Table, Liberty Tree Tavern, Tony's Town Square Restaurant, and the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen.[9][10] Lands[edit] Main article: List of Magic Kingdom

is divided into six themed "lands." It is designed like a wheel, with the hub in front of Cinderella Castle, pathways spoke out across the 107 acres (43 ha) of the park and lead to these six lands.[11] The 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge Walt Disney World Railroad circles around the entire 1.5-mile (2.4 km) perimeter of the park and makes stops at Main Street, U.S.A., Frontierland, and Fantasyland.[12] One of the world's busiest steam-powered railroads, it transports 3.7 million passengers each year.[12] The railroad has four steam locomotives, No. 1 Walter E. Disney (a 4-6-0

Ten-wheeler), No. 2 Lilly Belle (a 2-6-0

represents the park's "opening credits," where guests pass under the train station (the opening curtain), then view the names of key personnel along the windows of the buildings' upper floors. Many windows bear the name of a fictional business, such as "Seven Summits Expeditions, Frank G. Wells President", with each representing a tribute to significant people connected to the Disney company and the development of the Walt Disney World Resort. It features stylistic influences from around the country. Taking its inspiration from New England
New England
to Missouri, this design is most noticeable in the four corners in the middle of Main Street, where each of the four corner buildings represents a different architectural style. There is no opera house as there is at Disneyland; instead, there is the Town Square Theater. Also, this is where Christopher George Weaver, the "mayor" of Main Street U.S.A., and one of the park's most important figures, resides. Main Street is lined with shops selling merchandise and food. The decor is early-20th century small-town America, inspired by Walt Disney's childhood and the film Lady and the Tramp. City Hall contains the Guest Relations lobby, where cast members provide information and assistance. A working barber shop gives haircuts for a fee. The Emporium carries a wide variety of Disney souvenirs such as plush toys, collectible pins and Mickey-ear hats. Tony’s Town Square Restaurant and The Plaza Restaurant are table-service locations. At the end of Main Street is Casey's Corner, where guests enjoy traditional American ballpark fare including hot dogs and fries while enjoying old baseball tunes on the piano. The Main Street Confectionery

sells sweets priced by their weight, such as candied apples, crisped rice treats, chocolates, cookies and fudge.[14] Most windows bear the name of people who were influential at Disney parks. An example of a classic Main Street, U.S.A.

attraction is the 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge Walt Disney World

Railroad, which transports guest throughout the park, making stops at Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland, and Frontierland. The railroad's previous stop at Mickey's Toontown

Fair was replaced by the Fantasyland stop in 2012. Main Street, U.S.A.
Main Street, U.S.A.
also has the Main Street Vehicles attraction, which includes a 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge[15] tramway with horse-drawn streetcars, and several old-fashioned motor vehicles. In the distance beyond the end of Main Street stands Cinderella Castle. Though only 189 feet (58 m) tall, it benefits from a technique known as forced perspective. The second stories of all the buildings along Main Street are shorter than the first stories, and the third stories are even shorter than the second, and the top windows of the castle are much smaller than they appear. The resulting visual effect is that the buildings appear to be larger and taller than they really are. The park contains two additional tributes: the Partners statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse

Both were sculpted by veteran Imagineer Blaine Gibson. In 2012, Disney replaced the shop in the Firehouse with a sign up for the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game. Adventureland[edit] Main article: Adventureland (Disney) Adventureland represents the mystery of exploring foreign lands. It is themed to resemble the remote jungles in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, South America and the South Pacific, with an extension resembling a Caribbean town square. It contains classic attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean, the Jungle Cruise, Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, the Swiss Family Treehouse, and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Frontierland[edit] Main article: Frontierland

and makes its way through several lands, eventually ending on Main Street, U.S.A., toward the front of the park. Liberty Square[edit] Main article: Liberty Square (Magic Kingdom) Liberty Square is inspired by a colonial American town set during the American Revolution. The Liberty Belle Riverboat travels down the park's Rivers of America. Liberty Square is home to such attractions as the Haunted Mansion, the Hall of Presidents, and The Muppets Present...Great Moments in American History. A sign-up location for the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is behind the Christmas shop. Fantasyland[edit] Main article: Fantasyland Fantasyland is themed in a medieval-faire/carnival style, in the words of Walt Disney: " Fantasyland is dedicated to the young at heart and to those who believe that when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true." Attractions include It's a Small World, Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, and Mad Tea Party. From 2012 to 2014, Fantasyland was expanded to nearly double its size and new attractions and guest offerings were added, including sub-areas themed to Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, and The Little Mermaid. New attractions such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

The resort's monorail system and ferryboats transport guests to and from the Magic Kingdom.

Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom
lies more than a mile away from its parking lot, on the opposite side of the man-made Seven Seas Lagoon. Upon arrival, guests are taken by the parking lot trams to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), which sells admission into the parks and provides transportation connections throughout the resort complex. It also has a small gift shop and the central lost-and-found facility for all four theme parks. To reach the park, guests either use the Walt Disney World

buses, depending on the location of their hotel or parking lot. The three hotels closest to Magic Kingdom, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
Resort
and Spa, use either the ferry or monorail system to travel to Magic Kingdom. Guests staying at Disney's Wilderness Lodge
Disney's Wilderness Lodge
and Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground can also ride a dedicated ferry boat to the Magic Kingdom docks. Guests of other hotels take buses to travel to the park, while guests who are not staying at any of the resort's hotels must use the monorail system or ferryboats to travel to the park from the Transportation and Ticket Center. The three ferries are clad in different trim colors and are named for past Disney executives: the General Joe Potter (blue), the Richard F. Irvine (red) and the Admiral Joe Fowler (green). The main monorail loop has two lanes. The outer lane is a direct nonstop loop between the TTC and Magic Kingdom, while the inner loop has additional stops at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
