The Best of The Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom was the first of Disney's Theme Parks to be opened in Florida. Walt's dream, completed after his death with loving care by his older brother Roy O. Disney, opened to the public on October 1st, 1971. This homage to the child that lives in all of us sits on 142 acres, and at its center is the towering beautiful Cinderella Castle. Similar to the original Disneyland in California, the park is divided into six themed lands - Main Street, U.S.A.; Adventureland; Frontierland; Liberty Square; Fantasyland; and Tomorrowland.

Below It All: Utilidors Of The Magic Kingdom

You may have heard that there is a tunnel system under Magic Kingdom. There is a tunnel system below the Magic Kingdom Park called the utilidors. Walt wanted the utilidors because when he opened Disneyland, he saw a cowboy walking in Tomorrowland and that wasn't what he wanted to happen. To help prevent that from happening in Magic Kingdom, he planned for the utilidors so cast members had a way to get to where they work without disrupting the story line in the different areas of the park.
