MAGIC KINGDOM® PARK – BELIEVE IN MAKE BELIEVE
Magic Kingdom has often been said to be the true essence of Disney magic and can be experienced simply by stepping inside. Opened in 1971, the venerable theme park has withstood more than three decades of changing cultures, a constantly shifting social climate, and an explosion of technology that has left lesser places outdated and obsolete. Yet, somehow, the Magic Kingdom continues to remain the undisputed king of Theme Parks, drawing more yearly visitors than any other.
EPCOT® – DISCOVER ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
Epcot, the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, opened in 1982. It was conceived by Walt Disney to “take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry.”
Epcot consists of two themed areas, Future World and World Showcase. Future World features attractions that focus on energy, communication, the land and our environment, the ocean, imagination, transportation and space exploration.
DISNEY’S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS®
Disney-Hollywood Studios, which opened in 1989 as the Disney MGM Studios, has been transformed into the Gateway to the 100 Years of Magic Celebration, the centerpiece of which is a huge 120-foot Sorcerer Mickey hat, built at the very end of the entry plaza, outside the Great Movie Ride attraction.
Disney-Hollywood Studios isn’t as large as the Magic Kingdom or EPCOT, and like the Disney’s Animal Kingdom, it can’t be reached by the Disney Monorail. However it is still worth allocating a full day to see the park’s many attractions, which include musical productions Voyage of the Little Mermaid and the Beauty and the Beast at the Theatre of the Stars.
DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM® THEME PARK
Animal Kingdom has 500 acres and is home to some 1700 animals representing 250 different species throughout the park. A ride on the Kilimanjaro Safari will give you a chance to see many of them as they take you through the African Savannah.
The fun gets wild at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. Explore the realm of creatures that inhabit our world . . . and our imagination . . . and create an adventure that roars with excitement. Savor thrilling attractions, colorful live shows, the majesty of nature and our never-ending fascination with animals.
