Liberty Square opened with the Magic Kingdom on October 1, 1971 with The Haunted Mansion, Liberty Bell Riverboat, and The Hall of Presidents.

Representing the colonial times of the United States, this land is one of the most detailed in Walt Disney World. While walking around take a look at the different ground textures (the path down the middle of the street represents the sewage that would be present in streets back in the 1700's).

While the attractions here aren't exactly thrill rides (you could argue that the Haunted Mansion could fit in that category), the attractions are, for the most part, very patriotic.

The opening day attractions for Liberty Square are all still around
today. There have been changes made to the attractions, especially The Hall of Presidents which receives a new president every four to eight years, but all of the attractions are still considered classics by Disney fans around the world.


Touring Tips: While in Liberty Square, keep your eyes open for two lanterns in a window. These lanterns represent Paul Revere's midnight ride where he was signaled one lantern if the British were coming by land, and two if by sea. The Imagineers are making sure you remember your United States history!

Near the lanterns you'll find a musket in a window representing that the civilian living here was ready to fight if needed.

Reader Review:

I absolutely love Liberty Square, it is my favorite land in the Magic Kingdom. I just love the look of it. Plus it has my favorite attraction, the Haunted Mansion, my favorite restaurant, Columbia Harbor House, and one of my favorite shops, Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe. I also really enjoy the very patriotic music that they have there. The riverboat is a great break from walking around in the parks and you get such great and different views of different areas. The one thing that is a negative about Liberty Square is that it is the smallest land in the Magic Kingdom. It would be great if they could expand it a little, but I am not sure if that is possible.

One little fun fact I have realized about Columbia Harbor House is that a lot of people don't realize there is a second floor and so a lot of people either won't eat there if it looks crowded or they will take there food outside to eat it. So there is usually always a spot to eat in there.
