Here Are 25 Disney Secrets Everyone Should Know

Disney World’s Magic Kingdom attracts more than 18 million tourists every year–more than any other theme park in the world. Add in the numbers from its other parks, and Disney seems to approach world domination. Although visiting Disney World is definitely a touristy thing to do, most Florida families like to take advantage of the proximity to The Most Magical Place on Earth. Thus, many residents become die-hard Disney fans.

The Magic Kingdom is divided into six distinct areas (lands), arranged in a spoke-like formation, all meeting at the top of Main Street U.S.A. right in front of Cinderella Castle. The six lands consist of Main Street USATomorrowlandFantasylandFrontierland, Liberty Squareand Adventureland. Each land is themed to its appropriate title and maintaining that theme is paramount to the parks operation. A vast network of underground tunnels connect all sections of the Magic Kingdom, thus preventing guests from seeing any of the necessary “behind the scenes” operations, and preventing cast members from one land from having to walk through another. Well, that was the original idea anyway – recent changes to park policy now allow cast members to walk freely through the park in whatever outfit they happen to be wearing.

The Magic Kingdom contains some real “don’t miss” attractions, depending on what age bracket you fall in.  One of this park’s strengths is the cross-generational appeal of many of its better attractions.  Splash Mountain is a good example.  It’s not unusual to see three generations of family members riding together.  Other favorites like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train,Jungle CruisePirates of the Caribbean, and Haunted Mansion offer similar appeal to a wide range of visitors.

Disney World Raises Prices on Annual Passes

Walt Disney World has revamped its annual and season pass system, raising their prices and making changes.

Multiple media outlets report that Disney has increased prices, with the passes including new benefits, such as free parking for annual pass holders. Disney now sells two passes with blackout dates, with the pricier one allowing people to visit more days.

The $329 seasonal pass is now gone. Instead there are gold and silver passes, costing $389 and $549, respectively for Florida residents. The platinum plus pass, which has no blackout dates, is now $729 for state residents, and includes admission to four Walt Disney World theme parks, two water parks and other attractions.

Disney says the new system was designed to offer pass holders more options.

Current passes remain valid through their expiration dates.
