Uswitch has revealed that Disney’s Magic Kingdom is the world’s most eco-friendly tourist attraction, after scoring the most popular attractions on their commitment to sustainability.

The company looked through the sustainability statements published by 27 of the world’s most visited tourist attractions, and analysed their commitment to sustainability.

This was based on low emissions, water reduction, recycling schemes, re-wilding efforts, renewable energy and sustainable transport, giving maximum scores of 60.

Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Florida topped the list as the most eco-friendly attraction, as it has made the biggest conscious effort to decrease its impact on the environment.

A solar farm now provides Walt Disney World with more renewable energy. As concern over the effects of climate change increases around the world, attractions are busy developing green agendas, whether they are reducing plastic, going solar, or offering vegan options.

Magic Kingdom scored 56 out of 60 on the eco-ranking, while Universal Studios Orlando ranked eighth with a score of 41.5 out of 60.

Other attractions that made the cut include Niagara Falls, the Eiffel Tower, the British Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Tower of London.
