When Walt Disney World first opened in 1971, the Magic Kingdom theme park was the central attraction of the Vacation Kingdom, with all of the resort area’s transportation built around getting to the park.
However, in the five decades since Walt Disney World has grown exponentially, making getting to the resort a tad more complicated to navigate… to say the least! Don’t fret, though, we’re here to answer every question you could possibly have about how to get to the Magic Kingdom.
Magic Kingdom’s Address
First and foremost, knowing the Magic Kingdom’s physical address is important. The park is located at 1180 Seven Seas Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830.
How to Drive to Magic Kingdom
Once you have the address, enter it into your GPS and follow the instructions. However, you won’t actually be able to park at the Magic Kingdom.
The Transportation and Ticket Center
The Magic Kingdom doesn’t actually have a parking lot. Instead, guests can park at the Transportation and Ticket Center. They can then take either the Walt Disney World Monorail or a ferry boat across the Seven Seas Lagoon to reach the Magic Kingdom.
How to Get to Magic Kingdom From Polynesian Village, Contemporary, or Grand Floridian Resorts
For guests staying at a resort on the Seven Seas Lagoon, there are numerous transportation options to reach the Magic Kingdom. Each of the three resorts are linked to the park via the Walt Disney World Monorail, and the Polynesian Village and Grand Floridan also offer boats to the Magic Kingdom. In addition, all three resorts are on a walking path that leads directly to the Magic Kingdom.
