3. Walt Disney’s Magical Kingdom
Magic Kingdom opened as the first part of Walt Disney’s planned Florida Project on October 1, 1971. There is an underground tunnel system below the Magic Kingdom called the utilidor but it is not really underground. The utilidor system is actually constructed at ground level and the park itself was constructed over that. The Magic Kingdom Park located at the Walt Disney World Resort is itself spread over an area of 107 acres, which makes it larger than Disneyland California.
