Big Thunder Mountain Road - Magic Kingdom (* * * * *)

Tom Sawyer's Island - Magic...

Tom Sawyer's Island - Magic Kingdom (* *)
When you get tired of lines, Tom Sawyer's Island is a good refuge. Children will be amused by the 'adventure' of finding hidden mines, passages and other tricks.
Just avoid it when it seems it will rain. I was caught in the middle of a pouring rain and as the only liaison with land is a raft, I was trapped...

Jungle Cruise - Magic Kingdom (* *)
Although I was not very impressed about this ride, it is a good alternative for small children that can't face the most radical rides. It may provide some level of adventure for them, without causing any trauma...
Fast Pass available - possibility of avoiding lines.

Legend of the Lion King -...

Legend of the Lion King - Magic Kingdom (* * * * *)
This show is even more spectacular than the one in Animal Kingdom. An absolutely must: great music and dancing...
Do arrive early (20 minutes before), as it is likely to have long lines and there is no Fast Pass...

Snow White's Scary Adventures...

Snow White's Scary Adventures - Magic Kingdom (* * *)
Great ride, but do believe in the name of it: it can be really scary, especially for young children...
On the other hand, this unusual approach makes it attractive to older children... The Magic Forest is quite terrifying...

Spectromagic & Fantasy in the...

Spectromagic & Fantasy in the Sky - Magic Kingdom (* * * * *)
Spectromagic is the night parade that happens every day at 9 pm. It is absolutely unmissable. Disney's characters parade in a lights celebration... Find a place in advance (Main Street is the best point, especially if you can see the Castle in the background). Fantasy in the Sky is the firework show that follows, at 10 pm. Stay at the same place and you will have the best view. Also you will be close to exit. By the way, pick the boat, as it allows more people inside than the monorail.

When you're in the magic...

When you're in the magic Kingdome you shouldn't miss the space mountain roller coaster.
It's a pretty scary roller coaster and what makes it even scarier is the fact that it's all being done in the dark (beside some twinkling stars).
The problem with this coaster is that usually there are huge lines (waiting for at least 20 minutes when it's off season.At high season it can also be an hour wait).
But it worth waiting !!!!

The Magic Kingdom

Possibly the most famous theme park in the world. Yet the Magic Kingdom contains none of the really scary rides you associate with the modern theme park. Its hard to put your finger on why it is so good, but it is. After parking your car you still have about a mile to go. You take a tram ride to the transportation center. There you can buy your tickets and are faced with the choice of either going by monorail or boat to the park entrance. Boat is my choice, especially for that first visit. Getting to the park early is the key to going on as many rides as possible. Try to arrive an hour before the park opens.
Get a map and decide on your first ride. Splash Mountain is a good one to start. The lines soon build up, but you may get to go on three or four rides before the queues really start.
Another good tip is to go to the park first thing, stay until about 11am then leave remembering to get your hand stamped for re-entry. Return to the park at about 3pm when other people are starting to leave. This way you miss the mid-day Florida sun which can be a real killer

Walt Disney World's Magic...

Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom... now my least favorite of the Disney Orlando parks... is GREAT for kids of all ages.
THIS IS an amusement park. And the service has improved from the 1980s.

When the park opened in 1971 (I believe I first visited about 1973) it was a great place. In the 1980s I literally noticed that someone threw up (vomited) in one of the lines and ew noticed upon leaving the ride fifteen minutes later no employee had cleaned that area. (YUK!)

IN 2002, the park is again spotless and efficient!

Fireworks and Fun

No trip with children would be complete without a trip to The Magic Kingdom, and making sure your there for the Dreams Come True fireworks display is a must. The show is amazing, with all kinds of things going on.

Dreams Come True is arguably Disneyland's most lavish nightly fireworks display. It's also the longest, clocking in at almost 20 minutes long, and costing over $33,000 per showing.
