This place is a joke and not worth the money at all. Used to be brilliant and special but the under investment in the parks, crazy costs to patrons, massive long line caused by constant over-capacity (new hotels all the time being built no new space for the extra guests in the parks). The fast pass system is a total clumbsy nightmare. Cuts out the fun and spontaneous nature of being able to wonder around at your own pace doing things as you see them. Now has to be approached as a military excerices fine tuning your hours and fast pass times which ultimately is a waste of time anyway because all the suitable times for rides will have been booked up ages ago, before you even arrive! If not completely booked up altogether (not to mention loads of rides constantly not open). A total joke, a local told me he booked rides months in advance so what chance do outside tourists have? (who I might add bring a lot of money into the local economy). The old fast pass system was at least fair to everyone.
Just not a goodplace to go anymore. Very sad.

Fun and adveturous. The park is more enjoyable when you use the fast pass. The first day I went I didn't have fast pass and the wait in the lines were a bit too long and tiring. The second day I made sure I had all my fast pass adventures ready and it was great. Had a blast.

Although it was an extremely warm day, which is to be expected since it's in Florida and it's June, we still had a very enjoyable time. Personally I love the shows. Did not see one that I didn't enjoy, both live and animated. The friends that I was with love the rides so they did the usual Space mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Thunder mountain.

The Castle is so graceful and beautiful, just loved it all. The live singing shows there were amazing.

Love the Magic!

Went to experience magic kingdom, rides broke down, wait times weren’t realistic when we complained to staff they said they would take into consideration for future, 3 rides broke down that day, we explained we where on a 1 day pass and they couldn’t care less, the monorail broke down and we all had to ferry home, every thing seemed disoriented in comparison to universal which had realistic wait times we had 1 ride that broke down and universal let us ride again without waiting. Whereas in magic kingdom rides had wait times of 40 mins and they ended up being 2 hours, Really disappointed with Disney

The experiences we had at Magic Kingdom were wonderful. Of course it was hot, but we managed to stay hydrated and cool. The shows and rides were fun, and we created a lifetime of memories.
