This was the first theme park to be built here at
Walt Disney World and was Walt Disney's first idea for the Florida property. At
the the time it was built it was the largest private construction project in the
world. Taking 2½ years to build, and about $400 million dollars The Magic
Kingdom opened it's doors to 10,000 visitors on Opening Day on October 1, 1971.
The Magic Kingdom is divided up into seven different lands
Main Street U.S.A. -- a street that you would find in most old
American small towns complete with shops and restaurants
the scent that you smell coming from the Main Street Bakery is actually fake! The scent comes from a tank underneath Main Street, U.S.A. that releases the wonderful aroma!
Adventureland -- this land is dedicated to adventurous rides with themes ranging from pirates to African animals
Walt Disney originally wanted to call this land True-Life Adventureland
Frontierland -- a land themed to the wild west, complete with an abandoned mine, and even a laughing place
Liberty Square -- a land themed to the colonial
The Liberty Tree is the oldest living thing in Walt Disney World; it is more than 130 years old!
Fantasyland -- this is the land with rides themed to disney movies
Mickey's Toontown Fair -- where you can visit Mickey and Minnie's houses
New Tommorrowland -- a Jules Verne-style look at the future with futuristic rides. The one thing people notice most about the park, is the meticulous theming with each land having their own seperately themed Cast Members, food, and even garbage cans.
