The Magic Kingdom
Construction on the Magic Kingdom, which
is considered to be Florida's most famous theme park and
also the most visited theme park in the world, began in

California's Disneyland, which a few improvements. It's
said that Walt Disney caught sight of a Frontierland
cowboy walking through Disneyland's Tomorrowland and
wanted to make sure that the magic wouldn't be ruined in
Florida's park. In order for cast members to move

It also has an office, originally designed to be a suite
for Walt Disney and his family before his death.

all its own. Within each “world” are many different
attractions, all having to do with the theme of that
world. There are a total of forty-eight attractions in
