Florida Guide > Magic Kingdom

As you approach the Ferryboat terminal you will see great views across the water to Magic Kingdom and Cinderella’s Castle. The Ferry crosses the water quite frequently and we have never waited more than 15 minutes for one to arrive. Last time we travelled on the Admiral John Fowler. We try to go upstairs after boarding particularly on a hot day as you seem to get more of a breeze there. There are benches to sit on although the girls love to look out over the rails to see Magic Kingdom approaching.

On the way across you will pass the impressive hotels with their man made beaches as well as the Ferry coming in the other direction and the small boats that take people from the hotels to Magic Kingdom.

You will come into dock by the Monorail and pass through the Ferry gates towards the entrance to the Park. If you need any information about the transportation you will find a kiosk here that can help you. Close to this is a board that shows hotel guests which gate they have to go to get their boats back to their hotel.

You then pass under the Monorail and if you need a drink there are several cabinets with self-service ice cold drinks in them. As you look at the Monorail you will see the Magic Kingdom Train Station, the train travels around part of the Park do try to ride on this it is a lovely relaxing experience and also provides a welcome sit down in the heat of the day!

For many years now security has been quite tight at the Disney Parks and before you can enter if you are carrying a bag these have to be checked. The queues for these can be quite long but the staff try hard to get guests through as quickly as possible.

You will now see a huge flower display with a very large “Let the Memories Begin” and you know you have arrived at Magic Kingdom. This area can get quite crowded as it provides a great photo opportunity for visitors.

As you enter the Park you will see a section for Locker rental and Wheelchair rental. The Lockers can be useful if you have brought spare shoes, rain ponchos etc with you. I am not sure how much the Wheelchair rental is but I believe you have to leave quite a large deposit which is quite understandable.
There is also a Stroller Rental section which we found invaluable when the girls were under 4 years old because although they are capable of walking around the Park the strollers can provide a good place to sleep in towards the end of the day!

You are now at Magic Kingdom, enjoy.
