In 1971 Walt Disney World opened its doors to the world. Magic Kingdom was the first park that was opened on Disney property in Florida. Magic Kingdom is made up of seven lands and the land of the south is a tropical paradise that is begging to be explored! They call it Adventure Land. This pristine land may look untouched by man but really millions of people wander thru this jungle every year. Adventure Land is host to many attractions and restaurants, all of them set with a tropical theme. Whether you like strolling thru a thick jungle of bamboo or battle in the waters with the famous Captain Jack Sparrow, there is a magic that overcomes you every time you visit Adventure Land. The most fascinating aspect of this land is the detail to reality. There are palm trees from all corners of the world. Date palms, canary palms, queen palms, coconut palm, pygmy palms, and cypress trees. Adventure Land may be the smallest of the lands by size, but the largest land when it comes to excitement and exploration!
Jungle Cruise: This exotic ride will take you on a tour of three continents: Africa, Asia, and South America. The Jungle Cruise is a 10 minute tour thru the greatest jungles from around the world. On this ride you will see elephants bathing under a waterfall. Maybe you will see some real animals such as ducks and migratory birds. What is entertaining most about this ride is the corny jokes that the skippers tell during the cruise. Some are very out dated but for some reason they will make you crack a smile every time. There are many things to enjoy on this cruise but the most fascinating is the rare plant life that can be witnessed around the rivers edge.
