At the Magic Kingdom® Park, there are the usual staples that you surely don’t want to miss. In Tomorrowland, Space Mountain® is a rocketing roller coaster that makes you feel as if you are hurtling your way through space at cosmic speeds. Also, nearby at Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger® Spin, guests climb on board a ZP-27 space cruiser and set out to become a galactic hero in what feels like a real-life video game.
But while you may be zooming through these attractions, we want to make sure you do not miss what is one of the classic attractions at not only the Magic Kingdom Park, but also in all of Walt Disney World®. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress was created by Walt Disney himself and was first introduced to much delight at the World’s Fair. After its intro there, it was brought to the Magic Kingdom® Park, where it still remains tucked away at the back of Tomorrowland®. After entering the moving theater, you will take a seat and watch as an audio-animatronic family grows through the 1900s, 1920s, 1940s and present day and learns all about the new technological advances and modern-day marvels along the way. This 20-minute attraction is sometimes only open seasonally, but for any true Disney buff, this is an attraction that shouldn’t be missed!
While you are over in Tomorrowland®, another attraction you may not even know is there is the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. The TTA takes you through the sky above – and in some cases, through – the top attractions in Tomorrowland®. This is a very welcome 10-minute tour to anyone who needs to just escape from the massive crowds below, get a good breeze on a hot afternoon or just get off their feet for a moment.
Frontierland® at the Magic Kingdom® Park is home to two other members of the “mountain range” at this theme park – Big Thunder Mountain Railroad® and Splash Mountain®. And while these two rides offer thrills of a lifetime – with high-speed turns on a man-made mountain and a boat ride that ends with a 52-foot drop, respectively – we would also like to suggest slowing down for a moment and catching the Country Bear Jamboree® nearby. The Country Bear Jamboree is another one of Walt’s big ideas for the Magic Kingdom® Park, meaning it has been, and probably always will be, a staple in the park. This 17-minute show features approximately 20 audio-animatronic bears performing country music, along with a little bit of comedy as well.
After taking in the Country Bear Jamboree®, we suggest that you head on over to Tom Sawyer Island. Tons of people see this during their day at the Magic Kingdom® Park, but never take any time to go over and see it. Tom Sawyer Island is man-made and can be accessed by the Tom Sawyer log rafts that depart frequently in Frontierland. Children especially will love this island, as they can explore Injun Joe’s Cave, Harper’s Mill and Ft. Sam Clemens, along with countless other dirt paths, bridges and other nooks and crannies around the island.
While Tom Sawyer Island is located across from the Rivers of America, you can hop over to Liberty Square and climb on board the Liberty Square Riverboat for a half-mile cruise on these waters. The Richard F. Irvine is a real, working steamboat that takes passengers for a 15-minute cruise with great views of Tom Sawyer’s Island and other close attractions.
Everyone at Orlando Fun Tickets hopes that your vacation and your trip to the Magic Kingdom® Park is a memorable one – and that these tips above will only add to your experience and memories for years to come!
