Walt Disney World Overview

The largest recreational resort in the entire world, and the most visited as well, Walt Disney World Resort is located near Orlando, Florida, and is generally known simply as Disney World. Initially opened on October 1, 1971 with just the Magic Kingdom theme park, over the years it has added a variety of other attractions, such as the Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Today, the resort contains four theme parks, two water parks, 24 themed hotels, and a variety of all-inclusive amenities as part of the overall structure. And despite many popular misconceptions, Disney World is not actually located in Orlando, but rather sits on its own series of cities.

Walt Disney World is a massive beast. Walt Disney’s original design has been expanded upon over the years until it exists as it does today. There are currently 32 resorts and hotels on the property, ranging from deluxe to moderate, value, Vacation Club villas, and campgrounds. As a result, regardless of your budget, Disney World has something to offer you.

Whether or not you enjoy the park is entirely up to you. While many people describe it as a place of magical vision and weeks’ worth of fun, the other side of the fence see it as nothing more than a constant barrage of crowds and amusement-park rides. However, the one thing that the resort can offer everyone is their own unique slice of pie, whether it is shopping at one of the extensive shopping centers, eating at one of the variety of restaurants, playing golf, tennis, boating, backstage tours, or just soaking at one of the many health clubs.

Disney World is everything about Disney, wrapped up in the one unique experience. It is impossible to take everything in during even a three or four day trip, and many people come back year after year to experience something new and exciting as the park evolves over time.
