Take a step back into Magic Kingdom’s early years with the A Visit to Walt Disney World Board Game.
Details of the A Visit to Walt Disney World Board Game
This vintage board game focuses on the Magic Kingdom Park in its first years. The game first came out in 1972. It was reproduced for Disney World’s 50th Anniversary.
The game has some of the original attractions like the Haunted Mansion, the Tea Cups (official name- Mad Tea Party), and Legends of the 20,000 Seas, to name a few.
This board game comes with a decent amount of pieces. Most are die cuts outs, which you will need to assemble.
- 1 Magic Kingdom replica gameboard
- 1 spinner (which has an arrow)
- 6 of the original characters (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, and Pluto) with 4 stands(red, blue, green, yellow)
- 40 attraction tickets ( each color will have 7 attraction tickets and 3 monorail tickets- 10 tickets in all)
- 1 Haunted Disk
- 1 Castle
- 3 Monorails
- 1 Haunted Mansion attraction
- 1 Mad Tea Party attraction (includes the teacups and plastic button)
- 4 walls for the game board
- 1 Railroad Station
- 1 Tray Build Up Box (Backdrop of the game)
- Game Rule Pamphlet Book with Assembly Instructions
I like how batteries are not required to play. It is a simply classic board game, nothing too over the top. The only thing with this game, it does take some time to assemble, especially when you first play. Some of the pieces are delicate. This is because they are made of paper/cardboard so keep that in mind when assembling.
Object of the Game
The object is to be the first to visit the attractions based on the tickets you draw from your pile. The player to use all of their tickets first is the winner of the game.
There are 4 decks of tickets that correlate to the color of the character stand you are using. Each deck has the same number of tickets, but they do not have the same attractions to visit. Some may visit one attraction once, while others may visit that one twice. No one deck will visit all the attractions available on the board. I thought that was a little odd.
I love they are some obstacles that may come in the players’ way while playing the game. It gives the game a more competitive element.
Number of Players and Age Limit
2- 4 players can play. This game is perfect for small families like mine. It is recommended for ages 8 years are older.
Price and Available to Purchase
The retail price when I purchased it was $39.99. I bought it from the gift shop at the Pop Century Resort during our stay. I also spotted it in other shops around Disney World. If you find yourself not going to Disney World soon, it is available on shopDisney.
I love the vintage vibes down to the game board and pieces! When I play, I feel like I am getting a glimpse of what Magic Kingdom looked like when it first opened back in the 1970s.
I also like the twists in the game, making it a little competitive. My hubby and I did think some of the rules were a little unclear. We came up with our own solution if something wasn’t cleared in the rules. This gave the game a little more personal twist for us.
We highly enjoyed playing this retro game. It will definitely become a game night classic for us. I will definitely be playing this game when I am missing home and/or need a little “Spirit of the Castle” feeling.
