Magic Kingdom Park is a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando. Owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company through its Parks and Resorts division, the park opened on October 1, 1971, as the first of four theme parks at the resort. Initialized by Walt Disney and designed by WED Enterprises, its layout and attractions are based on Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and is dedicated to fairy tales and Disney characters.
The park is represented by Cinderella Castle, inspired by the fairy tale castle seen in the 1950 film. In 2015, the park hosted 20.49 million visitors, making it the most visited theme park in the world for the tenth consecutive year and the most visited theme park in North America for at least the past fifteen years.[1] You can feed the birds! One yummy castle! The World of Chocolate Museum is amazing & you get to sample chocolates at the end of the tour One of the best parts of completing the Round the World tour at Epcot Center is the performances given by all the artists in each country. This was in China, and the dancers had all of the onlookers mesmerized. As I've gotten older, I've grown out of some of the other parks at Disney and really come to enjoy strolling through Epcot. Maybe it's a sign that I'm getting older, but I felt like it made a lot of sense considering how much I've fallen in love with travel. Visiting each country at Epcot only made me want to visit those places in real life. #colorful Never tire of this landmark.... amazing at night.
Quiet please. I take a sun bath.

#stunningstructure A picture from a morning boat ride to Downtown Disney from the Port Orleans resort. We were first in line on a Saturday. The rides start at 10:00, but it was quiet that beautiful morning and only a few other people were on the boats. Construction at Downtown Disney has made parking a nightmare. I definitely recommend taking a boat ride there if possible! #waterlust Beatiful sun!
Orlando, Florida - USA 🇺🇸 Amphicar Rides !! I have to get one of these... Amphibious Classic cars are about as cool as it gets! These rare “Amphicars” drive on land and in the water. For a mere $125 you get your own car with a Captain and up to three people. This is the only place in the world you can experience this unique ride! Disney Springs hosts the world’s largest, hand-painted helium balloon!
The balloon was custom-built for Disney by the Paris-based company Aérophile and is filled with 210,000 cubic feet of helium. The balloon’s basket holds about 30 people and rises on tethers to around 400 feet.
That big sucking sound is not a hole in the balloon ... it’s coming from your wallet. Expect to pay about $20 for adults and $15 for the kiddies for this short ride. So sweet Yummy! Cool photo taken from the boat house Experimental Prototype Community of tomorrow.
Photo taken with my iPhone 5.
Love Florida clouds. Really took this photo as a Day 43 - Resting in Disney Springs.

Blue skies with the House of Blues We drove over for the day to visit my sister Malathi and her friend Prahba and visited had a great Birthday lunch and walked around Downtown Disney.
The Ghiradelli Ice Cream waffle cone was outrageously good. After a long day in the park and Illuminations fireworks in the evening, I took this picture with my iPhone 6+ as I was heading to the trams. Helado de maiz...mmm... Planet Earth. Epcot Center at night! This photo was taken at 21th February 2014 from an IPhone 6 without flashlight. #epcot #atnight Young mouseketeer, doing what comes naturally at Downtown Marketplace. Cars that float! Had to be Disney behind this magical creation. Downtown Disney. We had dinner with good friends from New York Carol Nemore and Jerry Andritz at the Rain Forest Cafe in Downtown Disney. We had an excellent meal and good times with great friends.
Many awesome Coral Aquariums with bright tropical fish. Glimpse of Spaceship Earth from the World Showcase. Cool 👌 View from our room of the river. #green #Disney Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow... Spaceship Earth at night is spectacular. My favorite time to go is in the fall when there are less crowds. #Patterns #AquaTrove Snorkelling with stingrays. Morning walk not too shabby this morning. The new Morimoto Asia in Walt Disney World's Disney Springs. I haven't tried the duck yet, but I will eventually! The Marriott World in Orlando now has a nightly laser show Sunset at Epcot Pirate room at Disney's Caribbean resort. Great stay for all kids. #restaurant
Small eatery, great fish and shrimp but it is the bar that makes this place. Epcot center, always wanted to see this in person since I was a kid. At the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, near Orlando, a beautiful view of their lake, pool, and golf course. Especially pretty time of day, with the trees reflecting back into the lake at sunset. An amazing resort! China, in EPCOT, Walt Disney World, Florida. If you live local, and need to travel (but can't), it's something! Spaceship Earth! Beer sampler in London. Epcot flower garden festival. Enjoying a cucumber cocktail and the view. Downtown Disney. For discoveries and culture plan your trip to Epcot! Spaceship Earth (the big ball) takes you back to the dawn of man and teaches you all about human technology and advancements.
