The Walt Disney World resort is 43 square miles of Disney heaven located in Lake Buena Vista, Florida (near Orlando). The resort first opened on October 1, 1971, and has been growing ever since. It includes 6 theme parks, a shopping and entertainment area, over 25 themed hotels, golf courses, camping grounds and much more.

Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom


This is where it all started. The Magic Kingdom was the first and still is the most popular theme park at Disney World. This is where you'll find the awe-inspiring icon that is Cinderella's castle, as well as it being home to 6 different themed lands. Main Street USA, Adventure-land (which includes attractions like Pirates Of The Caribbean and Jungle Cruise), Frontierland (which includes attractions like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain), Fantasyland (which includes attractions like It's a Small World and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train), Tomorrowland (which includes attractions like Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin), and Liberty Square (which includes attractions like the Haunted Mansion).

Epcot

Epcot


Epcot (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) is up next. It's monumental icon is the giant geodesic sphere (the giant golf ball!) which is also home to the attraction 'Spaceship Earth'. Epcot is made up for 2 areas. Futureworld, which hosts attractions like Soarin', Test Track and more. Then there's World Showcase, which hosts 11 country pavilions around World Showcase Lagoon giving you the opportunity to sample different cultures from all over the world as well as hosting a fantastic firework show in the evening.

Animal Kingdom

Disney's Animal Kingdom


Animal Kingdom is Disney's zoological theme park. Animal Kingdom is home to over 6 different areas. Oasis, Discovery Island, Africa, Rafiki's Planet Watch, Asia, DinoLand U.S.A, and Pandora - The World of Avatar. Attractions at Animal Kingdom include Dinosaur, Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris & more.

Hollywood Studios

Disney's Hollywood Studios


Disney's Hollywood studios theme park is based around Disney owned movies. It is currently undergoing a huge expansion to add more Pixar and Star Wars themed lands to the park. Some of the attractions at this park are a bit more thrilling and include Tower Of Terror, Star Tours, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster & more.

Typhoon Lagoon

Typhoon Lagoon


Typhoon Lagoon is one of Disney's water parks. Typhoon Lagoon has one of the worlds biggest wave pools, along with a few slide attractions. You can also grab an inner tube and enjoy some blissful floating in the 640m scenic lazy river which encircles the entire park.

Blizzard Beach

Blizzard Beach


Blizzard Beach is centered around a smaller wave pool, and contains many more slide type rides. It's main attraction is 'Summit Plummet', a water slide with a 120 foot drop.

Disney Springs

Disney Springs


Disney Springs is the newly renovated (and continuously updated) shopping and entertainment district. It is home to dozens of retail shops, restaurants, bars and more. You can park and visit Disney Springs for free as it's one of the few areas of Disney that doesn't have a fee to enter.

What You Need To Access All The Above


When you're at Disney World, you can pay for day tickets, although this is an expensive way to do it. It is advised you buy a 7,14 or 21 day ultimate ticket before you go. This gives you unlimited access to all the parks.
