Walt Disney World Resort is located in Lake Buena Vista, close to the city of Orlando. It’s the world’s most popular entertainment resort where dreams come true. It offers much more than just a theme park, with the whole resort covering nearly 47 square miles of Florida. The resort has six fantastic parks. There are four theme parks –Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios, plus two water parks – Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Now add in over 20 themed resort hotels and two exciting night-time districts and this is why Walt Disney World is one of the most photographed places on the planet!
Experience the magic
Disney magic can be experienced simply by stepping foot inside Magic Kingdom, a place where the dreams of kids and adults of all ages come true. As you walk down Main Street, a charming turn-of-century nostalgia can be experienced, and the magic can be felt with a first glimpse of the iconic Cinderella Castle. The kingdom is split into five lands – Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Liberty Square and Adventureland, each featuring themed and unique attractions.
The magic is kicked up a notch when the sun goes down with spectacular fireworks and parades. Disney Wishes, the most popular of all brings together the voices of much-loved Disney characters narrate this sensational fireworks show. Witness the incredible history and future of our planet unfold during a stunning fireworks display around the World Showcase Lagoon at Epcot. At Hollywood Studios, Fantasmic! brings together everyone’s favourite Disney heroes, princesses and villains in an action packed water extravaganza.
Beyond the parks
It could be said that Orlando is the theme park capital of the world, with not only the Disney Parks but Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures that offer you the chance to relive your favourite movies. But there’s more to Orlando than theme parks. It’s a shopping paradise with International Drive being home to over 500 stores and the likes of the Mall of Millenia and Orlando Premium Outlets offering a retail rollercoaster.
