Loved Magic Kingdom but the lines were long even with fast pass. It is very expensive for admission for a family and the food is expensive. Its to bad they cant make it more affordable. The Fireworks were outstanding!!

Even after 25 years of coming to Disney the place still makes me cry in a nice way.
Staff are friendly with nothing being to much trouble for them..

We visited here on our eldest daughters birthday, we spoke to one of the cast by bag check and got her a birthday pin/badge. All day cast members were wishing her a happy Birthday which is a lovely touch. You can get badges for first visits engagement, wedding, honeymoon etc and it’s a great idea. The castle still takes my breath away. Everything about this place is excellent. For the Disney fan it’s a dream come true.

Just been back to MK with our 3 Year old Grandson and the queues were horrendous, despite the fast passes. Rides did not justify the waiting times unfortunately.

Magic Kingdom is INCREDIBLE but it's the hardest park to do (out of MK, Epcot & Hollywood Studios) with small kids (ages 8 months and 2.)
Here are a few tips for brave parents that want to tackle MK:

1- Be aware that it takes easily 45 minutes to get from your car to the doors of MK. You will have to get on a shuttle bus and then either take a ferry or the monorail to the doors of MK- add security check to it all.

2- Use FastPass+ - DO IT! You will be so thankful to skip lines.

3- Take your little one(s) on it's a Small World! This is the ride our kids preferred. It's slow, colourful ,the music is nice

4- Try to grab a bite at 11am before it gets crazy crowded and hot. Columbia Harbour House is a good bet because it's spacious.

5- Understand you cannot/will not be able to see everything.

6- PLAN YOUR DAY! Especially with kids, you need need NEED a plan if not you'll run around MK like a headless chicken. Too much to see, too much to do, not enough time.
