Best Theme Parks: Welcome to where it all began. Magic Kingdom may be the first of Walt Disney World's theme parks, but it's no less relevant. Recent years have seen doubling of New Fantasyland with the debut of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and other noteworthy additions. In the meantime, Cinderella's castle still beckons, the groundbreaking indoor thrills of Space Mountain remain solid, "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.
