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] Cinderella Castle Bay Lake,Florida:🏰👑 Sometimes, you can't get away to travel. That's when I go to EPCOT (I live only 1 hr away). I ride Soarin & pretend I'm really there. Can't stop a girl from Dreamin!
#EndlessSummer The Butler Chain of Lakes is the largest chain of lakes in the Northern Hemisphere. Each lake is connected by a man made canal. With white sand bottoms, these lakes are a great place for water sports and fishing! It'd be a shame to visit Orlando and not spend some time on the water! 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.

#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 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.

Small eatery, great fish and shrimp but it is the bar that makes this place. Want to enjoy Magic Kingdom fireworks for free? Head to this resort, enjoy dinner or dessert on the top floor, and step out on the balcony for the full fireworks show from Magic Kingdom! Amazing! Epcot center, always wanted to see this in person since I was a kid. The moon as viewed from our balcony at Disney's wilderness lodge. After crazy hot kid centric days this was our little retreat for grownups. On several nights we were treated to a bright moon after the evening thunderstorms. It was remarkably peaceful after the day's activities. The restaurants were good and were were glad we chose this property.
July 2014 Nice spot to rest before hitting the market in epcot Canada exhibit at Epcot. They show a beautiful film about the country. 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.

The lego store in Disney Springs has some cool mega lego structures including this sea dragon; great place to get a break from the amusement parks, so some souvenir shopping and dining. #disney #disneyworld #orlando #disneysprings #lifeatexpedia Disney World attraction Koi Pond at Epcot, 2000 visit Epcot on memorial day weekend.... WTF was I thinking ! Save me ! Assorted pieces of heaven #SweetSpot First time staying here was,awesome. Artist point restaurant is fabulous...I had the bison. As DVC members, we have available access to many wonderful Disney resorts, but we liked this the best of all we've been to with the exception of Vero beach. . One of many above-line-of-sight items most of us never see at Disney. Some interesting signs and photo ops in the park. I'm a sucker for theme parks and Disney never disappoints. Just a simple ride, but happy faces all around anyway! Great resort, home of the whispering canyon cafe, a fantastic restaurant. Lots to see here. There are lots of cool signs and photo ops in Animal Kingdom. My favorite place to visit while in Epcot - United Kingdom Pavilion Sunset at International Showcase in Epcot. At the Disney Epcot Park in Morocco. Tasty small plates. Truly talented people who are behind the Flower and Garden festival. New Italian restaurant in Disney Springs.
They have a lunch menu till 4PM and a Dinner menu. Lovely outdoor setting good wine list. Free bread served with olive oil and roasted garlic. Very nice but not a place for a family with small children.
And apparently the birds can be very forward noo
