The Mountains of Magic Kingdom – 24 Facts & Secrets

20 – A replica to Disneyland’s version of the attraction.

The ride experience on Big Thunder Mountain at Disneyland and Walt Disney World are very similar but a bit different with new features recently being added to Disneyland. The actual mountain is larger at the Magic Kingdom as opposed to the mountain that lives at Disneyland.  It still isn’t anywhere near as tall as Cinderella Castle, the tallest building at the Magic Kingdom.

Editors Note: With the different ride features, we feel the ride at Disneyland is much better than the one at Disney World. ~ Chad & Cindy

About Christy Caby

Hi! I’m Christy, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. He proposed at Disney, we honeymooned at Disney, we started bringing our boys before they were born and then as early as 8 weeks old. We then continued to vacation to Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what makes more sense than just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way. I love to share this love and passion for all things Disney with the world and hope that I can help others appreciate the magic that Walt Disney World has to offer!
