MCMagic was the very 1st of its kind in Minecraft – A working theme park with rides, shows & attractions. With the combined efforts of over 350 Cast Member volunteers, and the assistance of more than 275,000 Guests worldwide, we have been able to faithfully reproduce the MAGIC of the Walt Disney World Resort.
Over the past 4 years, MCMagic has become world-renowned for their dedication to Guests & Walt’s vision. A place where families can come together in a fun, safe & enjoyable way. Those efforts were noticed by our peers and helped lead us to being:
- Featured Panel at Minecon
- Participated in YouCube
- Invitation to ArcadiaCon
- Profiled by top YouTubers
- Cover stories in top publications
- Thanked by parents
- and much more!
We’re proud to have served so many happy Guests. We love being able to provide MAGIC to so many smiling faces across the globe.
As Roy O. Disney said on Walt Disney World’s Opening day: ”May [it] bring Joy and Inspiration and New Knowledge to all who come to this happy place … a Magic Kingdom where the young at heart of all ages can laugh and play and learn — together.”
From all of us in the MCMagic Family of Servers – we hope you enjoy your time here and have a MAGICAL day!

♫ A tale as old as time. ♫
Our owner, therealduckie, visits the Magic Kingdom in Florida for the 1st time. This began an unending love for the parks that has never dwindled. (That’s him, with the chubby cheeks, in the center!)
♫ I’ve been searching my whole life to find my own place. ♫
While an administrator on Reddit’s Creative server, therealduckie was infamous for his Duckington Town builds. To expand on these builds, he had the idea to build his first theme park, naming it MantaRay Park. It had the very first version of the Pirates of the Caribbean.
♫ We need to paint with all the colors of the wind. ♫
Building Duckington & MantaRay Park sparked an even bigger idea; he now had the tools to build a working Magic Kingdom! Living in Florida, but not having the ability to go to the parks as often as he’d like, it was his dream to be able to recreate a small portion of that MAGIC and be able to visit every day.
After completing the first few rides, He found that others enjoyed this experience as much as he did. So, at the beginning of 2011, therealduckie made a promise to himself and everyone else – he would continue building the park until it was finished.
From a laptop in an unassuming bedroom in Orlando, Florida, therealduckie officially opens MCDisney on August 11th, 2011.
♫ Be…our…guest! ♫
This is the year we exploded in popularity. The server started with 20 slots but could barely hold 9. Still, hundreds joined in the first few months. Our build team grew from 3 to 20 in a few weeks.
MCDisney became so popular that, by February, we had to buy our first server. This was also the year we changed the name from MCDISNEY to MCMAGIC.
We expanded beyond Magic Kingdom to complete the Contemporary Resort. Then, starting in April, we set the first blocks down for EPCOT.
Later in the year, we were featured by top Youtubers like ZackScott and BeBopVox plus many other websites. Also, starting in April, we started counting our Guests. In 1 month of counting, we had 1500 unique Guests!
♫ A dream is a wish your heart makes. ♫
