10 of the world’s best theme parks – Disney and more
3/10. Disney’s Magic Kingdom
Kissimmee, Florida, USA
The champion of theme parks is Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Even the most cynical adult will be transported back to their childhood as they step onto Main Street in front of Cinderella’s Castle, and catch a first glimpse of Mickey Mouse. Last year, a bigger Fantasyland was revealed with new experiences, including a voyage under the sea with Ariel the mermaid and the chance to take part in the story of Beauty And The Beast.
This year, the The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride was unveiled – a roller coaster that ventures into a diamond mine and through a forest to encounter the characters of Snow White.
A visit to one of the park’s many meet-and-greet areas, where children can meet their favourite cartoon character, is a Disney tradition that all the family will love.
Price: A 14-day multipark ticket costs £279 for adults and £259 for children (three to 10). Book tickets in the UK at disneyinternational.com/tickets.
