Magic Kingdom Park

Event information

It is no big secret that Orlando, Florida is the theme park capital of the world, so it should come as no surprise that Magic Kingdom has been among the most popular parks in the world for 13 years in a row. Is it the Cinderella Castle?

Maybe it is the princesses and other Disney characters. It could be because it is open all year long. Then again, the 42 rides and attractions may have something to do with it as well. Whatever the reason, it is well-known that Magic Kingdom is a fun-tastic place to go for RVers looking for a new adventure.

Orlando is a large city with a population of more than 2.5 million people. But when visiting Magic Kingdom, guests feel like they are in a much smaller and rather entertaining world. Orlando has some of the best vacation spots from theme parks to state and national parks, and this one in Orange County is highly favored. With six different lands in one park that have names like Adventureland and Fantasyland, it is not hard to see why. So, grab the kids and head to the Cinderella Castle today.

Speaking of kids, the park has more than 40 rides and attractions just for preschoolers and kids under 12. Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, and Frontierland all have spectacular attractions like Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, the Mad Tea Party, and Peter Pan’s Flight.

Take a break and eat at one of the 43 eateries throughout Magic Kingdom before relaxing for a show at Fantasyland or Main Street USA. Don’t forget to stop at some of the great gift shops to get some souvenirs to remember the day. RVers will be enthused to know that there is a campground with over 800 sites to choose from at the park as well! Orlando RV parks also stand at the ready in Florida.


In past years, tickets for Magic Kingdom have gone for just over $100 per person for one day. However, since Magic Kingdom is part of Disney World’s four different parks in one area, visitors can get a huge discount by purchasing a Four Park Magic Ticket for less than $85 per day. Guests get to visit all four parks (one per day) for one low price. Prices do not include parking or camping.

Finding Magic Kingdom is a cinch considering the huge Cinderella Castle and rides moving around all the time to attract your attention. Only 24 miles from the City of Orlando, the park is also easy to get to just off of I-4, US-192, or FL-429. Visitors may want to avoid the interstate where it meets the Florida Turnpike during rush hour.

While in town, many RVers take time to stop in at Fun Spot America, Universal Orlando Resort, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Universal’s Volcano Bay. SeaWorld, Discovery Cove, and Epcot are also popular places to see while in the area.

Parking areas

Parking at Magic Kingdom is easy too, with one parking pass for all four parks. They also have an oversized vehicle parking area for those with RVs and rigs. With 12 different parking lots named after Disney characters, it should be easy to find your ride when it is time to go. It may be cheaper to stay at the campground, though, since there is typically a discount on tickets for RVers who are camping.

Public Transportation

For visitors who are camping in the Orlando area, the Sunrail and bus 50 or 56 will take them to the Monorail Station at Magic Kingdom. Take the Lynx Kissimmee Intermodal bus from the Kissimmee area. Even from all the way in Tampa, visitors can take the Silver Star Train at Union Station to the Lynx Kissimmee Intermodal Station where they can grab bus 50 or 56 to the park.

Where to stay


As one of the most popular parks in the country, it should not surprise RVers how amazing their campgrounds are. In fact, there are 847 campsites on 750 acres nestled in the pine and cypress woods. Choose from sites with full hookups, premium sites, preferred premium sites with an extra tent space, and premium meadow sites for even the largest motorhomes up to 60 feet.

Not only do they have the best campsites, but they also offer a pool, shuffleboard, tennis, volleyball, and all sorts of planned activities that will delight the kids and their parents. In fact, the campground may be almost as fun as Magic Kingdom. Almost.


RVers can find more than a dozen campgrounds within 30 miles of the park ranging from primitive spots in the woods to plush glamping RV resorts. One of these is the Orlando / Kissimmee KOA, which boasts over 65 RV campsites that have utilities, showers, and restrooms for rigs up to 134 feet long. They also have a pool, hot tub, and a camp store. The kids will enjoy the playground, jumping pad, and basketball, and Fido will love Kamp K9.

For those who would rather stay in a more natural space, Lake Louisa State Park is just 20 miles away and has over 60 pet-friendly RV sites with electricity that can handle rigs up to 50 feet long. Fishing, swimming, and hiking are just a few of the fun activities here.

Just 29 miles to the north, Wekiwa Springs State Park has 53 pet-friendly campsites that can accommodate RVs up to 50 feet long with full hookups. Swimming is one of the most popular sports here because of the clear 72-degree spring water, but they also have horseback riding, biking, and even scuba diving.

Getting around

Since there are so many parking lots and there may be a bit of a walk to the gates at Magic Kingdom, the park does provide free shuttle service for guests. For those who have mobility issues, the park also rents wheelchairs, or you are welcome to bring one from home. Strollers are also available at the park for those with little ones.

What to pack


Of course, Florida is a warm place to be any time of the year, so pack light, cool clothing like shorts and tank tops. For visitors coming in the summer months, the temps can reach the middle 90s, so it is important to wear clothing that breathes and a hat to keep the sun at bay. Comfortable shoes are also important.


Bags and backpacks up to 24x15x18 inches have been allowed but will be searched at the gate. In addition, these cannot be worn or carried onto many of the rides, so a locker will have to be rented when going on most rides. It is best to bring as little as possible so hands can be free for carrying food, water, and enjoying the rides.

Health & Safety

Sunscreen is a highly important item to remember, and visitors to the park often just bring pocket-sized bottles to keep in their pockets. Hats and sunglasses are also good to wear and be sure to bring some water. Insect repellent is also a good item to have if you are going to be at the park after sundown, and it is definitely important at the campsite.

Where to eat


It is always good to stock up on the kitchen essentials for the rig before hitting the road no matter where the trip is taking you. Items like camp plates, plastic forks and spoons, aluminum foil, and cooking spray are important to keep on hand. It is also good to keep trash bags, baggies, and cooking utensils in the RV as well. For a backup cooking source, many RVers bring a camp stove or portable grill everywhere they go.


For those who want to venture into town and eat a meal together, there are plenty of choices nearby. Just to the south about eight miles on US-192, RVers can find a Caribbean restaurant, two Asian places, a pizzeria, Mexican cuisine, and even an Exotic African eatery. To the east a couple of miles, there is a southern-style joint and several fast food places. In fact, there are fast food places surrounding the park and visitors usually don’t have to go far to find a meal.


Magic Kingdom has 43 eateries scattered throughout the park. From quick-service places that visitors can order online and pick up to full-service restaurants, there is a bit of everything to be found at this magical place. Some of the restaurants also offer dining with Disney characters or princesses that will delight the kiddos and adult beverages that will delight their parents.

Stop at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Fantasyland, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin Shop in Tomorrowland, or one of the other dozens of shops for some awesome souvenirs and gifts.



The park takes security very seriously and has specific security procedures in place to keep everyone safe while they enjoy their time. The visible security staff includes uniformed police officers, canine officers, bag checks, and security kiosks throughout the grounds. Random security checks are also done as a secondary screening measure. Be sure to check the website to find out what items are prohibited before heading into the park.


Florida is warm all year long but Orlando, being right in the middle of the state, can be sweltering in the summer. Winters are great with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Spring is usually nice ranging in the upper 70s or lower 80s for the high and 60s for lows. Summers are hot, with temps in the middle 90s for highs and middle 70s for lows. Rain is likely during the summer, typically in the afternoons. The rest of the year, rain is possible, but it is more likely between June and September.


First-aid at the park is also taken seriously. If someone has an injury or feels ill, they can immediately contact one of the park staff or a safety staff member. There are several first-aid kiosks in the park with registered nurses on staff. Located nearby, urgent care centers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Visitors can also call 911 if needed.
