Walt Disney World® Resort

Discover why this fantasy land of theme parks, hotels and entertainment venues is the number one holiday destination on the planet.

Walt Disney World® Resort Florida is enormous. Just 21 miles (34 kilometers) from Orlando, the 30,000-acre (12,141-hectare) resort features four theme parks, two water parks, over 22 Resort hotels, and dozens of entertainment and shopping venues - so a little preplanning is recommended. 

Visitors who arrive at Orlando International Airport begin their Disney experience aboard Disney's Magical Express® Service, which is complimentary motor-coach transportation that whisks guests and baggage to their chosen Disney Resort Hotel.

Walt Disney World® Resort includes four theme parks, two water parks, and the Downtown Disney® Area.

Wonder, fantasy, and pixie dust are everywhere at the Magic Kingdom® Park. By day explore favorites such as Space Mountain® and Pirates of the Caribbean®. As night falls, your family will gasp in delight as Cinderella Castle lights up with Wishes™, a fireworks spectacular. 

Epcot® is a celebration of international culture and technical achievement. Visit 11 nations, lead a mission to Mars and dive into one of the world’s largest aquariums, and fly to new heights on Soarin'™, all in one day.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios® brings all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Drop in the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™, take 4-D aim and ride the Toy Story Mania!® Attraction and catch the beat of Rock'n'Roller Coaster® Starring Aerosmith.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park is the largest of its kind in the world. Experience a high-speed train trek through the Himalayan unknown on Expedition Everest™. Explore over 100 acres of African Savannah on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Journey to the ocean floor with Finding Nemo - The Musical, inspired by Disney-Pixar's "Finding Nemo".

Go against the tide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, the Water Park that blows other water parks away. ‘Come thrill out on a twisting, turning, water coaster, chill out on the beach, visit a shark reef. Ketchakiddee Creek has slides, rides and bubbling jets for the little ones. 

Plunge into the snow-capped mountain world of Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. Experience “black diamond” –intensity thrills like the 120–foot-tall Summit Plummet water slide. Kids will love the “bunny slope”  area made just for them. Plus, the whole gang will enjoy the fun of family fluming together.

Downtown Disney® Area offers a world of dining, shopping and entertainment possibilities across three sections. Don’t miss La Nouba™, a Cirque du Soleil acrobatic spectacular exclusive to Downtown Disney® Area.

Be sure to pack your golf clubs, as the Resort offers 3 PGA Tour caliber golf courses and a 9 hole walking course. In addition, there are two full-service spas. The complimentary monorail, coaches and water taxis make it easy to take advantage of all of the fun.
