Disney World Orlando Florida - Magic Kingdom
Advantages: The classic Disney experience
Disadvantages: More for kids than adults
I always wanted to go to Disney World as a child, but my parents could never afford to take me.
So, as an adult, I saved up and went with a friend at the age of 23! I still managed to have an amazing time and it made me feel like a big kid!
Magic Kingdom was the Disney Park I was most looking forward to visiting, as it is the classic park that people imagine when they think of Disney.
Upon entering the park I was faced with Pluto and the Chipmunks having photos with kids (and me!) and then I saw it, Cinderella's Castle! :)
The park has rides suitable for children and adults. I would definitely say the park is aimed far more at children than it is at adults, but that is not to say that the big kids amongst us will not enjoy it just as much!
The parades and shows that happen daily in the park are great fun, and we stayed late in the park to see one of the world famous firework displays, that was well worth it! Some of the fireworks were amazing, and even Tinkerbell flew across the sky (I still don't know how they did that!!).
There are a couple of rollercoaster type rides (Space Mountain being the main one), and then there are more "experience" rides, such as the Lilo and Stitch ride.
Personally I would be more inclined not to take children to Disney Land until they were at least 6. That way they can go on all of the rides and their tollerance for walking around a big park in the Florida sun is a little higher. We saw plenty of small children screaming the place down because they were hot, tired and fed up.
If you only have time to visit one Disney Park in Orlando, it has to be this one, for the true Disney experience.
However, if you visit more than one, I recommend Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Hollywood Studios is probably the best park for adults to enjoy.
