Magic abounds wherever you look in Walt Disney World. Whether it be the pixie dust that makes the Magic Kingdom sparkle, the wonderment that is the veritable city of tomorrow with countries of the world right at your fingertips in Epcot, real and mystical animal encounters closer than you ever thought possible in Animal Kingdom, or a movie studio theme park that puts you right in the middle of the action in Hollywood Studios… every park has something for someone. It doesn’t stop there, though. Each and every resort on property has something amazing in store for guests, and that doesn’t even begin to touch on the wonders of Disney Springs, the waterparks, and Disney’s Boardwalk.
What Does Magic Mean To You And Your Family?
In order to figure out which Disney park has the most magic, you really need to ask yourself a few questions. The most important is: what does magic mean to you and your family? Now every member of your family may have a different answer to that question. That’s kind of what Walt Disney World is aiming for, with all of the different options available to you.
Maybe the kids, or the kids at heart, find magic in meeting or dressing like a princess. Well then, the countless princess meet-and-greets in the Magic Kingdom will satisfy that magical wish. Maybe becoming a Jedi is more up your alley.
Does “magic” for you involve thrill rides? Or maybe rides featuring your favorite Disney movies or characters? Maybe climbing Everest in an effort to find the elusive Yeti is the magic you crave, or perhaps a trip up Sunset Boulevard to rock out to the tunes to Aerosmith, or soaring on the back of a Banshee, or what about a drop of terror in a classic Twilight Zone story?
It could be the countless shows that create the magic for you and your family. For me, the first time I saw the characters of Finding Nemo come to life on stage in front of me, I knew magic wasn’t fiction anymore – it was a reality. The Imagineers have created similar magic for the Festival of the Lion King show in Animal Kingdom, Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage and Fantasmic in Hollywood Studios, and of course the evening shows in front of the castle in the Magic Kingdom. So what is it that floats your magical boat?
So, let’s compare each park.
Obviously, Magic Kingdom gets top votes for character meet-and-greets. Not only can you meet and dress like a princess, but you can also dress up and learn to be a pirate. Hollywood Studios needs to get a bonus point though for being able strong with the Star Wars “force” and their incredible thrill rides. Animal Kingdom definitely has two of the best shows on property, Pandora, and of course the animal encounters factor into the equation too. Epcot has the most restaurants, most shops, and best variety of new things to try.
Or can we really answer the question now at all? In just this past year, the scope of Animal Kingdom has changed drastically. In the coming years, Hollywood Studios is making a HUGE transformation when it adds Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land. Even Epcot is getting a facelift and new attractions. And let’s not forget the Tron attraction on it’s way in to Magic Kingdom.

In the end, the answer is, of course, that magic is in the eye of the beholder. Whatever is close to your heart is what is going to make the magic happen for you in Walt Disney World.
I am partial to the shows, myself. So attractions like Fantasmic, Finding Nemo: The Musical, the lighting of the castle during Happily Ever After, and Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage create the most magic for me. But I think for most people the most magical place in Walt Disney World is the area that Walt first called magical way back when. He may have been talking about a different park (Disneyland), but Fantasyland remains the busiest area of Walt Disney World to this day:
“Here is the world of imagination, hopes, and dreams. In this timeless land of enchantment, the age of chivalry, magic and make-believe are reborn – and fairy tales come true. Fantasyland is dedicated to the young-in-heart, to those who that when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.”
