The Ultimate Rundown of Magic Kingdom Attractions Through the Years (1971 – Today)

Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park opened on October 1, 1971. In the half-decade since that amazing day, dozens of shops, restaurants, attractions, shows and rides have come and gone. In my directory of all things Disney, I give details on a ton of current and extinct Disney attractions. I thought it would be fun to take a look at a current (2022) Magic Kingdom map and run through everything that has occupied space in the park over the years and where each was located.

This seemed like a pretty straightforward and somewhat easy task. I couldn’t have been more wrong. As you will see below, the Magic Kingdom has changed way more over the years than you may realize.

The Ultimate Rundown of Magic Kingdom Attractions Through the Years (1971 - Today)

How to Use: Use the numbers on the map to identify a spot in the Magic Kingdom and then have a look at the list below to see a quick rundown of what was in each spot over the years. In some cases, there isn’t a current attraction in a spot where one once was, so for those, I listed the attraction immediately after the closest existing one with a bit of a note after it. Click on the attraction names to get more information about each of them.

Please Note: Identifying some of this information was amazingly difficult and required a ton of research. I did my best in figuring things out, but I can’t guarantee this to be 100% accurate. I will be updating and refining this post over time as I continue to research the park’s history.
