There really is nothing like walking down Main Street U.S.A and seeing the iconic Cinderella Castle at the end of the hub. The park opened October 1, 1971, making 2021 the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. Magic Kingdom is filled with nostalgia for young and old with rides like Space Mountain and The Jungle Cruise, and characters like Mickey Mouse and Snow White parading down the street waving to guests.
What’s new: Fireworks are returning to Magic Kingdom July 1, and TRON Lightcycle Run will debut at the park soon.
Pro-tip: Anytime you see 13 minutes as the wait for Haunted Mansion, the ride actually has no wait. This usually happens first thing in the morning or late at night when the park isn’t very busy. Hop in line to greet the 999 happy haunts.
