Walt Disney’s Magical Kingdom was last on my list. I was overwhelmed by the choice of parks and activities in Orlando, and having not experience many of the others I went for those first.
However you can’t really say you’re a Disney fan and not visit the original park when you get the chance. So on our last day that’s just what we did.
Unlike California and Euro Disneylands though, this one you have to reach by steamboat!
I think this picture accurately sums up the feeling when you complete the epic voyage and reach the opposite side of the lake…
I was curious how the Florida park would compare to others – particularly as I’ve had my fair share of trips to Euro Disney – and there were a few differences.
There are a couple of rides I hadn’t been on before – the runaway mine train (based on Snow White and the Seven Dwarves) and the Log Flume (based on Song of the South).
They’ve also upgraded one or two rides and I particularly enjoyed the changes to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
At the end of the day though, it’s Disneyland and you can be sure that you’re going to feel the magic, no matter what.
And the day always ends on a high…
