Favorite Land in Magic Kingdom

Blogorail Logo

Welcome to those of you joining me from The Disney Point
and those of you just hopping aboard.
I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Today I’m riding along with Magical Blogorail Black.
We are sharing about our Favorite Land in the Magic Kingdom.

So, I thought this would be an easy topic.  Then I sat down to write it and I realized that I like something about each and every one of the lands in the Magic Kingdom!  How do I narrow it down to just one favorite? 

  • In Adventureland, I love Pirates and the Jungle Cruise (and Dole Whips).
  • In Frontierland, I love Pecos Bill CafĂ© and the mountains (Big Thunder & Splash).
  • In Liberty Square, I love the Hall of Presidents and all the references to colonial America (I’m a history buff).
  • In Fantasyland, I love It’s a Small World (yes, I really do!)
  • And in Tomorrowland, I’m a sucker for the Carousel of Progress.

But, if I have to pick my all-time favorite land in the Magic Kingdom, I guess I’ll pick Main Street U.S.A. Here are just a few of the reasons why:

I love walking in under the archway and entering another world.

I love the train station, and especially getting to the park before opening to see the characters open the park.  I love the train – it just IS Disney.

I love the Town Square Exposition Hall.  I always have – even before you could meet Mickey and Minnie (and the princesses) here.


I love the statues at both ends of the street (Roy with Minnie and Walt with Mickey).

I adore all the shops!  I mean, I love to shop anyway, and what could be better than a whole street full of nothing but shops?! 

I love the characters on Main Street – both the “regular” characters and the ones that are just found on Main Street.  They are so fun to interact with.

I love the Main Street Bakery.  It’s a rather new discovery, but I can guarantee a visit won’t be complete without one stop there for pastries!

I love the way the street lights go from gas to electric as you  travel down the street.

I think it’s so cool how the windows are all marked with peoples’ names that have meaning to the Walt Disney company.  (I want the book about the windows!)

I love The Crystal Palace.  Even if we had never eaten here, I’d love it just because it’s so pretty to look at.  But, its’ a great place to eat and to visit with Pooh & Friends as well.

And I especially love the view of Cinderella’s Castle from everywhere along Main Street. 


What is your favorite land in the Magic Kingdom?  Why?

Thank you for joining me today.

Ahhh, I LOVE Main Street U.S.A.! Seriously, I might turn this topic into a series because I love each land so much!

Great post Heidi! The welcome show always brings tears to my eyes. I'm not sure why (maybe the music?) but it always puts me in the mood for a fantastic Disney day!

We like having you on the black loop! Stop by more often!

Thanks, Rosanne! I had so much fun hanging with the black loop today! And, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who gets teary-eyed by the welcome show! :)
