Walt Disney World is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, both in size and attendance. So it’s both unusual and exciting to hear that the most popular Disney World theme park has transformed into a ghost town!
When It Comes to Disney Vacation Destinations, Walt Disney World Is the Biggest and Baddest in the Game!
Walt Disney World is the biggest Disney Resort in the world, with four theme parks, two water parks, a vast shopping center, and over two dozen resort hotels.
The Disney vacation destination welcomed nearly 50 million guests last year, but the Disney Park with the highest attendance is, without a doubt, Magic Kingdom.
Magic Kingdom isn’t just the most popular theme park in Walt Disney World; it’s actually the most popular theme park in the world, according to one recent report. It’s the crown jewel of Walt Disney World and maybe even the Walt Disney Company!
After all, it’s the Disney Park, with the most quintessential Disney vacation experiences.
Guests can see Cinderella Castle, the stunning parades, the dazzling fireworks, and the classic attractions; in short, Magic Kingdom has it all! And right now? It’s totally empty!

This past weekend, X (formerly Twitter) user @Bioreconstruct, one of the best theme park photographers around, snapped an unusual aerial photo of Magic Kingdom:
In this photo, we can see that the crowd levels aren’t just low; they’re practically nonexistent!
But we’re not just getting this via pictures posted on social media; we can back this up with data: according to Thrill Data, September 2023’s attendance and wait times are lower than in previous years. However, Inside the Magic points out that this may be the calm before the storm.
As we creep closer and closer to October, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (the ‘Spring Break’ of autumn) ramps up, and the crowds will undoubtedly return to Magic Kingdom. If you want Disney Dining’s advice, we’d suggest visiting Walt Disney World before October arrives!
Magic Kingdom Has It All!
Magic Kingdom is home to six iconic neighborhoods: Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland.
Each neighborhood is home to classic attractions and experiences, such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, the Haunted Mansion, “it’s a small world,” Space Mountain, and more.
