The Magic Kingdom is divided into five distinct lands: Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Liberty Square and Adventureland, arranged in a spoke-like form. All these areas meet at the top of Main Street USA in front of Cinderella Castle.
"The Magic Kingdom" is also a nickname for the Disneyland theme park itself. This usage predates the Florida theme park, but Disneyland never officially bore this name. Underground tunnels connect all sections of the Magic Kingdom, so that the guests don't see any of "behind the scenes" operations. The tunnels are called utilidors, short for "utility corridors". Areas closed to park visitors are considered in Disneyland lingo "backstage". The tunnels also prevent cast members from one land from having to walk through another. This means that Cast Members in Adventureland outfits never have to be seen in Main Street, USA. This means that, technically, ground level inside the Magic Kingdom is actually on the second story. The utilidors were originally planned to be used for every park, but due to financial constraints they were not used in any of the other Walt Disney World theme parks.
From a touring perspective, Disney Magic Kingdom can present some real challenges because sometimes you have to wait 90 minutes on each attraction. A good plan is a very helpful and important tool you can use to get the most from your vacation.
