Don't ever count out the classics. Magic Kingdom may be the first of Walt Disney World's theme parks, but it's no less relevant. In fact, 2012 has seen the opening of the first phases of New Fantasyland, which will nearly double in size upon completion in 2014. In the meantime, Cinderella's castle still beckons, the groundbreaking indoor thrills of Space Mountain remain a solid coaster experience, "it's a small world" still delights children (and the parents and grandparents who remember their first visit decades ago) -- musical ear worm notwithstanding. Upgrades, of course, have happened everywhere, from the Hall of Presidents to Pirates of the Caribbean, where the plunge is as stomach-dropping as ever, but the addition of Captain Jack Sparrow satisfies fans of those eponymous blockbuster films. As always, everyone's favorite characters, from Donald and Goofy to princesses past and present, are on-hand for photo-ops and magically memorable moments.
