Situated in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, this is the largest of all Disney Parks with a staggering four theme parks, two water parks, a giant mall, 21 resort hotels, golf courses and much more. Walt Disney Resort simply cannot be done as a day trip; it is a standalone vacation.
Opened in October 1971, Walt Disney Resort started with Magic Kingdom, and soon expanded with Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, plus the water parks Disney Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon.
Walt Disney Resort’s land parks
At the centre of Magic Kingdom is Cinderella’s Castle (main photo) with six themed lands surrounding it in true Disneyland style from Tomorrowland to Adventureland. Fans of Beauty and the Beast will be delighted to visit the Enchanted Forest in Fantasyland featuring Beast’s castle and Belle’s cottage.
Disney Hollywood Studios focuses on the movies, and houses six themed areas. They include Pixar Place (above) dedicated to Pixar greats such as Toy Story, and Hollywood Boulevard, inspired by the streets of LA. Hollywood Boulevard even has an exact replica of the Chinese Theatre in LA, and inside you can journey through classic films in The Great Movie Ride.
