Walt Disney World
In the mid 1960s, Walt Disney — the creative mastermind behind the beloved cartoons — bought 47 square miles of swampy Central Florida land. Today, the enormous plot is home to no fewer than seven amusement parks and countless resorts and hotels. On Disney’s property, known as Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll find Orlando’s original Disney park, The Magic Kingdom. You’ll also find Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom, all Disney parks with their own unique themes and entertainment offerings. You can enjoy two water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Shopping, dining, and leisure activities are also scattered across the property, at the likes of Disney Springs and ESPN Wide World of Sports.
