Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom is the oldest of the Disney theme parks and contains the essence of Disney. Opened in the early ‘70s, this park is a must for anyone visiting Disney World for the first time.  There is a vast range of rides and entertainments and the parades should not be missed. The following are just a few of the attractions that we enjoyed, but there really is something for everyone;

  • Thunder Mountain
  • Peter Pan’sFlight
  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Electrical Parade

Epcot

Epcot (which stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) was opened in the early 1980’s and was a concept park designed to show how Disney thought the people of tomorrow could live.  The park is enormous, at 300 acres it is twice the size of the Magic Kingdom. The park contains two distinct areas Future World and World Showcase. Future World focuses on high tech and gadgets while World Showcase features a lagoon surrounded by 11 areas representing 11 different countries alongside their food and cultures. While at times Epcot can seem overly worthy, great efforts have been made to ensure that it remains fun for all the family. Some features to look out for;

  • Test Track
  • Soarin’
  • The Land Pavillion
  • Universe of Energy
