The story originates over on Quora with author Sean Owczarek. But then fans out, and include a number of other ideas from all over the internet. The ideas are good, if not fairly solid.

I chose to ignore the stipulation of a pre-gunpowder based strategy because the fortifications defending the Magic Kingdom and housing its troops was built with modern technology and therefore should be also be considered a target for modern warfare....

Phase 2:
The next phase would be the first two infantry companies sneaking in through the wooded area in the Southeast between Tomorrowland and Mainstreet, USA.
Their primary targets are the train station and entrance to the park (to prevent enemy escape or reinforcements.) The Tomorrowland company's objective is to secure the square and and buildings, as well as any advanced technologies it may hold. Marines and soldiers are advised to not use the teleporters. They're a trap. They will only kill your unit and replace him with an evil alien. Their main attack route will be through the stage. Also important is that troops remember to take all underground entry points and gas them to prevent surprise attacks from the tunnels.

My tactics would depend largely on the need to manage collateral damage and civilian casualties. If its no holds barred, then a Mech Infantry Company, with its M-1s & Bradleys, supplemented by 4 F-15 Strike Eagles will do the job. If that is not a good choice, then I'd send in a Spec-Ops company by HALO drop. Either way, I'd attack in the early morning, before the park opens. In the aftermath, I'd send in a Psy-Ops team to do the debriefing, and console the survivors.
