The Complete Guide to Magic Kingdom Rides and Attractions 2024

|

A trip to Walt Disney World in Florida wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Magic Kingdom. With four unique theme parks (along with Disney Springs and two water parks), this truly is the heart of the Walt Disney World Resort. At first glance, it may seem like a replica of the Disneyland Resort in California. They share many of the same rides and themed lands, and they both welcome you down Mainstreet, U.S.A. as you head towards a grand castle and the rest of the park. But there are definitely some key differences between the two parks. With that being said, here is your complete guide to Magic Kingdom rides and attractions.
