Magic Kingdom Park Reviews
Tron - you must ride it. Virtuell queue is actually nescessary. Lines would be hours :-( $20 for LL is heavy but understandable. Rest of the park is nice but actually a little outdated.
Trusted Customer reviewed Magic Kingdom Park 21 Sep, 2023
Great experience and amazing day.
Liam Butchard reviewed Magic Kingdom Park 19 Sep, 2023
Obviously the most magical park to walk into, but it does become a bit of a schlep to get from the car park to the actual park (especially when the transportation options let you down). It does get very busy but there is a lot to do and many areas to visit. Lots of food options. Try the cheeseburger springrolls. They are delicious!
