Walt Disney World® area
Vacation Travel Guide

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 motorcoach 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 Disney Springs® 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 Once Upon A Time™, a fireworks spectacular.

Epcot® is a celebration of international culture and technical achievement. Visit 11 nations, lead a mission to Mars, 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 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 (4o hectares) of African Savannah on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Journey to the ocean floor with Finding Nemo – The Musical, inspired by Disney-Pixar’s Finding Nemo movie.

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 and 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 (36.5) tall Summit Plummet water slide. Kids will love the “bunny slope”–level areas just for them. Plus, the whole gang will enjoy the fun of family fluming together.

Disney Springs® 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 the Disney Springs® Area.

Be sure to pack your golf clubs as the Resort offers three 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.
