    With all the additions and improvements, do you think that the Magic Kingdom is better than it was 15 years ago :unsure:

    Or do you prefer the old days when things were slower and more relaxed?

    I think its better, and havent even seen the New Fantasyland, but its seems like a much better use of space that to have the 20,000 leagues under the sea area all boarded up!

    Also, more character centered attractions are really good!

    I have to agree. I think it is better and can get even better.

    It's better.

    The advent of the Internet has been both a blessing and a curse. There used to be random magic touches years ago. Now everyone expects it.

    About 15 years ago was my first trip to WDW. I was in 4th grade and it was everything I'd dreamed of my entire life. But I do think they've improved! There's certainly more now. It's always nice to know there's no shortage of things to discover. I don't think I will ever have done everything. While there seemed to be a bit more "vintage" about Disney before, I think the Imagineers just keep topping themselves.

    Agree, it can lead to disappointment.

    I like it now, some fun things going on, I preferred alien to stitch's great escape but that's about it. Love the new technology and interactiveness of sorcerers.

    Alien was much better than Stitch. I think they should pull this out entireley and come up with something else to put in there.

    Hmmmm... 15 years ago. Not so sure I can remember that far back! :lol:

    I like MK well enough as it is today. :yes: Haven't been to the new Fantasy Land yet, though.

    i like the new things....but miss the old things....i have noticed a change in the people at the parks though...my first few trips everywhere you went people were friendly happy and smiled a lot. now people are busy yelling at their kids for walking to slow, etc...people who the cost of the trip is an effort and they insist on doing it all in one trip

    I loved the Magic Kingdom as a child, to me it was and still is, the heart of Disney. I remember when Splash Mountain was a new addition and we tricked my mom onto it by not telling her that it was the ride that had the huge drop:lol:. And my husband and I must be the only people in the world who like Stitch's great escape, but for some reason I don't even remember the Alien's ride. And as we are childless, we spend a fair amount of time kind of shocked and also a little amused to see the families fighting amongst themselves in the battle to have fun and see everything. So glad we've been there enough to be able to enjoy it and see the little things, as they are what make some of the best memories. So, another vote for better now and I can't wait to see it get even better.
