Walt Disney World Resort Reviews
Not the happiest place on earth. Seriously underwhelming. The Haunted Mansion smelled like mold and must. Many of the rides were the same as they were when I visited with my own family 30 years... more »
Having been several times before, albeit not for at least 10 years the whole resort has changed. Popularity with Disney will always be huge and the magic for little ones will never fade, but the... more »
It's Disney World. What can I say that hasn't already been said by millions of people? It's a blast for kids, adults and families. Not into the whole Disney culture? Give it a visit if you get the chance, you'll have a blast. It's not just a bunch of kiddie attractions. I was one of those people who thought I would thought it would be super lame for a 25 year old guy, just going because the kids want to. Nah, it's cool for real. Disney Springs is like the free part where anyone can go anytime. Nothing childish about it at all. Great food, shops and even bars to hang out at night. Definitely changed my view once I actually gave in and went. I'd go back anytime I had the chance now.
Disney Magic Kingdom is a wonderful place and surely you will have a magical day if your 'kiddos' mode is on. Points here are: -Outside eatables are allowed as to what I saw inside people carrying their own drinks and eatables -Standard and mandatory parking fee is $25 -It was Black Friday and our one day adult fee was $139 (per head) What to do in the Magic Kingdom: -Some small rides but remember some rides take 35-140 min wait time (in queue) depending on the crowd. It's not an amusement park, it's Magic Kingdom so do not expect difficult and huge rides. Hence, it might not be worth the queue time. Anyway, it's fun for kids. -There are timely parades and shows. Please do not forget to take the park guide pamphlet when you buy the tickets. It shows show times and the ways through the park with all little details. The hall of Presidents is worth visiting and their show. What to eat: -Tale tale taco is the $15 per meal restaurant and serves best Chicken and other meat tacos with unlimited toppings. They have several other options. They also have Rice bowl Veggie as a vegetarian option.
