The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World has been the most visited theme park in the world for many years. Inside the park, there is such a wide variety of experiences that everyone is sure to find something magical each time they visit. To celebrate all of the wonderful things Magic Kingdom offers, we have put together a list of everything we love about the park from A to Z.
A – Aloha Isle
This quick-service stop in Adventureland is the home of the iconic Dole Whip, one of the most-loved snacks in all of Walt Disney World. Pineapple Soft-Serve served over Pineapple juice (if you opt for the float) makes for the perfect refreshing snack in the midst of the Florida heat.
B – Be Our Guest
In Fantasyland, the Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Beast’s Castle is one of the most popular restaurants. The incredible atmosphere and attention to detail in the décor, alongside the delicious food, make for a truly memorable dining experience.
C – Cinderella Castle
Cinderella Castle is not only the icon for the Magic Kingdom but is also the iconic symbol of Disney itself (apart from Mickey Mouse). The glistening blue and gold roofs draw your attention and make for the perfect photo-op in the park. You haven’t truly experienced Walt Disney World until you’ve taken your picture and walked through the castle.
D – Dumbo The Flying Elephant
As far as classic attractions go, Dumbo ranks right up there with the best. The iconic ride lets guests control how high or low Dumbo will fly, with the added bonus of giving guests in line a pager so kids can play under the Storybook Circus tent until it’s their turn to ride.
E – Enchanted Tiki Room
Walt Disney’s original vision can still be seen in this fun audio-animatronic show where the tropical paradise is full of singing birds, flowers, and totem poles. It’s another classic ride that should be a must-do for every Disney fan.
F – Frontierland
Housed inside this old-west themed area are two of the most popular attractions in the park – Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. In addition, Frontierland also plays host to Tom Sawyer Island, perfect for exploring, and the Country Bear Jamboree filled with talented bears performing their favorite tunes.
G – Gaston’s Tavern
As one of the manliest of manly places, Gaston’s Tavern pays homage to its namesake with a statue of the brutish villain posing in a fountain out front. Inside, however, guests are treated to a delectable menu featuring a mouth-watering Cinnamon Roll and the signature Le Fou’s Brew.
H – Haunted Mansion
This haunted estate houses 999 happy haunts, but they invite you to join them to become their 1,000th ghost. Aboard your Doombuggy, you get a tour through the mansion and a look into the antics of the resident ghosts singing one of the most memorable tunes in Walt Disney World.
I – it’s a small world
From one iconic song to the next, it’s a small world takes guests on a gentle boat ride through the Seven Seas Waterway, showcasing children of the world singing the song you’ll have stuck in your head as you exit.
J – Jungle Cruise
Full of puns, jokes, and sarcasm, the Jungle Cruise is an always entertaining attraction that isn’t afraid to poke fun at itself. Journey along the rivers of the world to experience everything from Schweitzer Falls (named after Albert Falls) to Trader Sam, the head salesman in the jungle.

L – Liberty Tree Tavern
In the heart of Liberty Square, the Liberty Tree Tavern is the perfect place to dine if you’re looking for home-cooked comfort food in the Magic Kingdom. Served family-style, the menu is full of Thanksgiving dinner favorites like turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes.
M – Main Street U.S.A.
After walking through the gates, guests are greeted with Main Street, with shops down each side and a quaint small-town American feel. The beauty of the street is only matched by Cinderella Castle, waiting to greet guests as the street opens up into the castle courtyards.
N – Neverland in Peter Pan’s Flight
Found in Fantasyland, Peter Pan’s Flight is an attraction that brings guests directly into one of the most beloved Disney animated classic films. The attraction first brings guests through the Darling’s house and nursery, where they are sprinkled with pixie dust. They can then take to the skies and soar over London and Neverland with Peter Pan and the Darling children to relive memorable moments from the film while riding in pirate ships.
O – Oak Tree
In Liberty Square, there is an oak tree that has supplied Disney gardeners with over 500 seedlings grown from its acorns.
P – Pirates Of The Caribbean
This boat ride takes guests on a chilling ghostly journey until they plunge into the battle between a galleon and fort before heading into the heart of the town to witness the plight of the pirates. Another classic Disney song gets sung during the ride, and you’ll find yourself singing along with your own Yo Ho! Yo Ho!
Q – Quick Service
There are so many great quick-service restaurants to choose from in the Magic Kingdom, including fan-favorites like Pecos Bill, the Columbia Harbor House and Cosmic Ray’s, just to name a few. Each one has a unique menu filled with delicious dishes.
R – Railroad
Around the outside of the Magic Kingdom, the Walt Disney World Railroad takes guests on a tour of some parts of the park not visible to guests on foot. With a station in Frontierland, Fantasyland and Main Street U.S.A., it’s also a great way to get around the park in a hurry.
Editor’s Note: The Walt Disney World Railroad is currently closed.
S – Space Mountain
As one of the symbols of Tomorrowland, Space Mountain is a must-do attraction for many guests. Blasting into the dark of space aboard a coaster where you can’t see the twists and turns in the track, this is one of the best thrill rides on Disney property.
T – Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
If you love Lady and the Tramp, Tony’s Town Square will immerse you in the atmosphere of the movie. Incredible Italian food in a quaint setting make this restaurant a great place to escape the busyness of the park.

W – Wishing Well
Cinderella’s Wishing Well can be found on the pathway on the right side of Cinderella Castle (if you are facing the castle). It’s usually a quiet spot that is a nice place to take a break. You may also spy a romantic wedding proposal, as this is a popular spot for proposals!
X – eXcalibur
From the Sword in the Stone, Excalibur (the name of the sword) sits stuck in place in Fantasyland for any guest who feels worthy enough to try their hand at pulling it out.
