50. Visit Magic Kingdom Disneyland
Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom is the original classic created by Walt Disney in 1955 and is the only Disney Park designed and built under his direct supervision. Located in Anaheim, California, Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom remains a true marvel as the foundation and precursor for all other Disney attractions. Today thousands of visitors continue to make this park a must-visit destination.
49. Visit Magic Kingdom Disney World
It should come as no surprise that Disney World’s own iconic Magic Kingdom Park stands out as a must-visit destination as well. Sharing many of Disneyland’s iconic classic attractions as well as its own individual specialties, in many ways Disney World is like a second edition to Disneyland—as Walt Disney conceptualized ways to improve upon and expand his original concept. Like Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom, the park’s most distinguished landmark is a large central castle. However, where Disneyland has Sleeping Beauty Castle, Disney World has Cinderella Castle.
48. Ride exclusive rides in each park
As mentioned previously, both Disneyland and Disney World share many of the same classic rides and attractions. But there are unique distinctions to be found at each destination and even more to be found within each destination’s various other parks. For the ultimate Disney experience you should make it a point to visit both resorts and experience those rides and attractions that are exclusive to each one. There’s nothing more thrilling than encountering the Abominable Snowman with Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland and then coming face-to-face with the elusive Yeti on Expedition Everest in Disney World. Or you could go from California Screamin’ to Aerosmith’s Rockin’ Rollercoaster.
47. Experience Epcot
Epcot was the second park idea conceptualized by Walt Disney while he was still in the developmental phase for Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. With more space for expansion, Disney envisioned a host of new possibilities. Today’s Epcot (originally an acronym of “Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow”) is a popular pick for all Disney World visitors. Epcot is broken into two areas—Future World and the World Showcase. Each one offers an expansive range of attractions to take in, making a visit to this park an absolute must-do experience to have in a lifetime.
46. Head to Hollywood Studios
Disney World’s Hollywood Studios is another must-visit park. Here you’ll find plenty to see and do in the way of unique shows and spectacles, rides, and various other attractions as well. Newly introduced Star Wars experiences and future plans for development make this park a continued pick for visitors to pursue.
