Magic Kingdom Coloring Pages
Everyone loves Walt Disney World in Florida. It is every child's delight to hear that his or her parents have booked a vacation there and they all have a chance to visit the Magic Kingdom, ride the rides and meet the Disney Princesses and other characters.
Walt Disney World, whose official name is Walt Disney World Resort, is located in Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, Florida, near Orlando and Kissimmee.
The Disney World Castle, whose real name is Cinderella's Castle, dominates Walt Disney World. It is the center of life at Walt Disney World, and everything there revolves around Cinderella's Castle.
Cinderella's Castle actually is the center of not one, but two Disney theme parks: the Walt Disney World Resort, and Tokyo Disneyland at the Tokyo Disney Resort.
Cinderella's Castle was completed in July 1971, five years after Walt Disney passed away. However, Disney himself is immortalized at the center of Walt Disney World along with his greatest creation, Mickey Mouse.
Cinderella's Castle is illuminated at night, and there are regular fireworks shows. If anything, the castle is more impressive at night than during the day.
A recorded speech by Roy O. Disney is played at Walt Disney World's closing every night. The colors of Cinderella's Castle change to reflect the classical music that plays at the closing.
Now, there is a lot more to Walt Disney World than Cinderella's Castle of course. However, it is the backdrop of countless images both of visitors and the Disney characters who inhabit Walt Disney World.
Of course, Disney characters also are known to fly now and then.
All of the Disney characters have their own spots at Walt Disney World. For instance, Rapunzel has her own tower where she can let down her hair.
Every child may meet Rapunzel and Princess Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall. This is an attraction located in New Fantasyland inside Magic Kingdom park at Walt Disney World Resort.
Mickey and Minnie, of course, are always in the house.
You may meet Mickey and Minnie at several places in and near Walt Disney World:
- Hollywood Studios – Meet Minnie in her Hollywood attire near the Sci-Fi Drive-in Theater
- Animal Kingdom – Meet Minnie in her travel clothes with Mickey at Adventurers Outpost.
- Epcot – Meet Minnie at The Character Spot. She can sometimes be found at the private Visa Meet ‘n Greet for those with the Disney Visa card.
- Chef Mickey’s – Meet Minnie in her chef outfit. Reservations required.
- Cape May Cafe – Meet Minnie in her beach outfit. Reservations required.
Daffy Duck, another eternal Walt Disney World favorite, is also always around.
Good places to meet Daffy Duck at Walt Disney World:
- Cape May Cafe Breakfast at the Beach Club Resort
One of the things that will leap out at you while visiting Walt Disney World is the colors. Everything is so colorful, and it is all framed by a typically blue sky with white puffy clouds.
Really, one of the highlights of a Walt Disney World visit is the scenery. Sure, the rides are terrific and the Disney characters are awesome, but just the pure sights of the Magic Kingdom will be lasting memories.
It is all due to one man, too: Walt Disney. He began putting Walt Disney World together with profits realized by the popular animated feature film "Mary Poppins."
Walt Disney was far along at the time of Walt Disney's passing in late 1966. It was finished by his brother Roy Disney.
Everyone has a favorite ride at Walt Disney World. When new rides come and old rides go, it always is big news.
Walt Disney World employs about 74,000 "cast members." These include the people who run the rides and sell the refreshments.
The Walt Disney World Monorail System provides free transportation at Walt Disney World and is run by Disney Transport. It is very easy to get around the park, but it does involve a lot of walking.
There are literally dozens of hotels where guests can stay within Walt Disney World. Many of these are operated by Disney itself.
Walt Disney also has four golf courses. There are two miniature golf complexes with a total of four miniature golf courses.
Epcot Center technically is a separate theme park, but it basically is part of the Walt Disney World experience.
Epcot itself is the fourth-most-visited theme park in North America. It was inspired by Walt Disney's vision and is a center of life in the Magic Kingdom.
The Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID) is a legislative mechanism allowing Disney to exercise governmental powers over Walt Disney World. So, the Disney company IS the law in Walt Disney World.
Epcot hosts a number of special events during the year. These include Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, inaugurated in 1994.
The Epcot International Festival of the Arts was inaugurated in 2017. It is a festival showcasing visual, culinary, and performing arts. The dates of the 3rd annual Epcot International Festival of the arts: January 18 - February 25, 2019.
New Year's Eve is special at Epcot. The park offers a variety of special events that include live DJ dance areas throughout the park. There is a special New Year's Eve countdown edition of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. Many people love to visit Walt Disney World on the holiday, particularly Christmas and New Year's Eve.
Alcohol is only served at special locations in Walt Disney World. If you are not at those locations, you must be content with soda or water.
There are too many rides at Walt Disney World to list and do them all justice. They are constantly changing, too, though some Walt Disney World rides seem to be eternal.
Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain are big favorites at Walt Disney World. But there are so many other rides, those two magnificent rides are just part of the total experience.
As you walk around Walt Disney World, you will see all sorts of characters.
You may not even recognize all of them - there are countless characters in the many Walt Disney animated feature films and other productions.
Walt Disney adds new characters too. For instance, the Star Wars characters only became a presence at Walt Disney World about a decade ago.
Many of the lesser-known characters at Walt Disney World are the most approachable.
However, the Disney Princesses are usually difficult to see. People stand on line for hours for audiences with the Princesses.
The most famous Princess of them all, of course, is Cinderella.
But Cinderella is just one of many Princesses now. Belle from "Beauty and the Beast," for example, is extremely popular. So is Ariel the Little Mermaid. But all of the Disney Princesses have their loyal followers. Can you name the 11 current Disney Princesses?
The Princesses who are the mainstays of Walt Disney World have a lot of competition. But the Princesses truly rule Walt Disney World.
Princess Aurora, for instance, is beloved by many Disney fans.
Princess Aurora, of course, was the star of "Sleeping Beauty" and also is known as Briar Rose.
Anyway, you probably know the Disney Princesses better than I do.
I'll let you identify them yourself. This is what you would have to do while walking around Walt Disney World anyway!
Everyone knows who our favorite mermaid is. Hint: she's very little.
Ariel, in fact, is among the most popular Disney Princesses.
The "Frozen" Princesses have come on strong in recent years.
You may have a royal audience with Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus. The lines are long, though.
Everyone knows who rubbed the lamp and let the Genie out.
Aladdin and Jasmine have Meet-and Greets for pictures and sign autographs at the Agrabah Bazaar in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom.
Can you name all the Disney Princesses below? I bet you can get Snow White. How good are you with the others?
It is rare to see five Princesses together at the same time. It only happens for special occasions.
It also can be rare to see some of the Disney Princesses just walking around Walt Disney World. But, it does happen.
Imagine seeing Belle just walking around - without her Beast!
Belle has starred on Broadway. Now that's stardom!
Belle should have someone from her retinue holding that umbrella for her!
There are several princesses who many feel deserve to be official Disney Princesses but are not.
Megara from "Hercules," Esmeralda from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," Princess Leia from "Star Wars," Princess Kida from "Atlantis: The Lost Empire," Princess Anna from "Frozen," Nani Pelekai from "Lilo & Stich," Jane Porter from "Tarzan," Nancy Tremaine from "Enchanted," Alice from "Alice in Wonderland," and Princess Melody from "The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea" are frequently mentioned. Some of these Princesses may become official Princesses by the time you read this, but they are not official Disney Princesses as of the time of writing.
Anyway, we hope you liked these coloring pages of Walt Disney World. Thanks for visiting!
