In a squeaker of a vote, Adventureland is the final poll winner for 2007! Edging out Fantasyland by a few votes, Adventureland literally crushes the other lands by a 2 to 1 ratio. Mickey’s Toontown Fair rides caboose with less that 1 vote (let it sink in…..that’s right- zero votes! Maybe we don’t have a lot of under 10 year-olds reading our blog!).

Adventureland is one of our favorite areas in the Magic Kingdom. Not only is it the home to the ubiquitous Dole Whip, but you can experience the Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean. It is also the one land where you can completely separate yourself from the rest of the park.
The next time you are at the Magic Kingdom, take a look at how you cross into each land from the hub. You do cross a bridge to get into Tomorrowland and Liberty Square, but the Adventureland bridge has a rise to it. You are forced to walk up to get into and out of Adventureland. Not only does this hide the destination from view, it also adds a sense of mystery to your journey. We know that the Imagineers change the pavement and the texture of the ground cover when you go from one area to another. Is the hill simply to help hide the hub from Adventureland?
