Pretty fun, but does have some shortcomings Dec 28, 2004
By J. Simmons
Santa brought this game for our 5, 7 and 8 year old kids. It didn't interest my 5 year old too much, the others like it. Basically, you are dealt 5 "attractions" cards and you roll the dice to move your piece through the Magic Kingdom to see your 5 attractions and leave before anyone else.
The directions included are a little confusing and it does take a few minutes to set up, but the main problem I see with it is the spaces to move your piece on are very small -- and some of them are very close together which makes it hard for the kids to move along the playing board easily. I do think that this game would be more fun and interesting if a recent trip to Disney World is fresh in your mind. I think if a child had never been to Disney World, they probably wouldn't be as excited with this game which relies heavily on real Disney attractions.
Overall fun, a very busy, crowded playing board but recommended for the family that has been to Magic Kindgom

We love this game! Oct 17, 2005
By K. Smith
I'm not sure why so many reviewers think this game is hard to learn or complicated...? It's pretty simple: be the first to visit all 5 attractions and get out of the park. My sons were 3 and 4 1/2 when I bought this game. I didn't expect my 3-yr-old to really get it--and he doesn't--but he loves getting the cards and walking his "family" around the board anyway. My 4-yr-old, however, loves this game and we played every day when I first bought it.
We did adjust the rules at first so he could play with the cards face up. He didn't really understand the concept of making it *harder* for me to win. He was simply focusing on his own efforts to win. However, he has learned about strategy now, so we can play with our cards face down. He loves to send me to the information center or to the electrical light parade when I don't want to be there! He's also learning a valuable lesson in good sportsmanship that he can be sent to undesirable spaces too. And since there are several ways to get around the park, like walking or taking the train, he's learned to count spaces really think about the best way to get from A to B. He also has to add when he gets a card that allows him to move additional spaces.
The board spaces are tiny, that's true. And I think the cute 3-D board pieces that mark some of the more popular rides at the park are a little bulky and not really necessary. They look good, but they just get in the way. Sometimes we just don't set them up. But I think the board looks enough like the real Disney park maps to be realistic.
As for the comment about the board being Disneyland rather than the Magic Kingdom in Disney World, does it really matter? I've been to both parks many times (as have my sons, which is a big factor in why they like this game so much I'm sure!) and there are attractions from both on the board. I agree it's the Disneyland castle. Additionally, Small World is in the back of the park by itself rather than in Fantasyland and the monorail is an "attraction." However, there's no Matterhorn. On the other hand, as in Disney World, the board shows the Pooh ride is in Fantasyland, the roller coaster in Toontown is Goofy's Barnstormer, and Tomorrowland has the TTA.
I think a Disney fan can't help but love this game! A non-Disney fan or a kid who hasn't been to a Disney park may not enjoy it as much. I've played with other adults in my family, and it can get pretty competitive! I especially like that doesn't take long to finish, usually about 30 minutes. I love this game!

A wonderful game Jan 28, 2005
By Disney Fan
This game is great for kids and adults of any age. We bought this game for our family so that my husband and I could play with our 4 1/2 yr old. The object is to start at the main entrance and go to each of the five "lands" of the park and "ride" one particular attraction in each, then make your way back to the main entrance. Whoever does this the fastest wins, so of course you will be trying to send others off their course. My daughter has very little problems with this game, we just remind her that she has to do everything "fast", so she can plan which way to go first. It teaches strategy, you need to be able to look at your cards (attractions) and plan your course of action. It also teaches how to rethink that plan when somebody sends you someplace else on the board that may not be near your attractions. As for the autograph cards, they are something that you want, but you don't want to let anyone else get, that is why the mickey and donald pieces are moved around. They let you stop yourself from being sent someplace by another player. If you have a card and another player lands on the mickey and donald pieces, they can take it from you, you don't want that, again it is strategy. Explain to kids what they need to do and ask them where they would go first, then go over the gameboard with them and show them their plan before the game starts. If they are chosing a long plan, than show them a faster one. Sooner or later they will crasp the concept. My daughter gets better everytime we play. She knows to send everyone into the corner of the game to make them lose, she knows to get one of the autograph cards, she understands the difference of the dice(one for moving between railroads and one for moving around the board), and she knows that a one or a two with the star gets her an event card where the other numbers 3-6 don't. The castle in the middle is sleeping beauty's castle, not cinderella's, the board and the card for that attraction says sleeping beauty, not snow white and as with all games and any deck of cards, they will last if care is taken with them. For best visibilty of the whole board it is best to play it sitting on the floor so that you are looking down at it, this also helps the little arms of children move their pieces around the board more easily. The game can be played in a very short time which is also a great feature. My daughter and I can play two to three times during my one year olds naptime. Each time you play it is slightly different because you do go to different attractions each game. I agree with the other reviewers that if you like Disney you would enjoy the game better than somebody who doesn't. This game does span the generations. We played at my daughters birthday party and we had three generations of disney fans playing, they ranged in age from 4 1/2 to 66 and they all enjoyed this game. The board is beautiful and the 3-D pieces and heavy pewter-like mickey and donald pieces are very nicely done. The pawns have different types of families shown on them, some with one parent, some with two and they are done in solid black (as shadows) so they can be any ethnicity. We play it so much that I am buying a second one for my one year old for when she is older and I am giving some as gifts.

Disney's Magic Kingdom Oct 20, 2005
By Candace M. Zabriskie
We recently visited Disneyland and I purchased this game to help remind my 10 and 8 year old of the fun we had. There were a few rides I had never heard of and the rides I did know of were in odd places on the board but we have a blast when we play it! When it's just me and the kids, it is pretty straight forward but when it's many adults playing it can get hilarious!! The instructions were a bit confusing in the beginning but easy to remember, once you get it. It is a relatively quick game that my guests beg to play as well as my children. It was a good investment in family togetherness and great at reminding us all of our wonderful vacation.

It's Disneyland at home! Sep 30, 2005
By J. Brink
"Crazy about Disneyland"
I bought this game for myself, I'm a Disneyland nut! We go at least once a year, so this is great to fill in the time between visits. We play as a family, we love it. My kids are 6 and 3, they really get into the game. It helps get your kids involved in planning and thinking ahead. Although many of the rides are not in the same places as they are at Disneyland. The goal of the game is to go to all your attractions and get back to the front gate 1st. It's a great game for the family and for Disney lovers of all ages. A great way to spend family time, even if you are not at Disneyland.
