Our family loves Disney World and we have traveled there several times. I even have another blog just on Disney, called Exploring the Mouse. For some time now I have wanted to do a series on this blog on Disney World. I hope you join me for this series on Walt Disney World.
For my first post, I decided to give you an overview of Walt Disney World. So What exactly is Walt Disney World? Walt Disney World is located near Orlando, Florida and is comprised of almost 30,000 acres. It has 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, 4 golf courses, several hotels (resorts), a shopping /entertainment area, and so much more.
Here is some basic information about Walt Disney World:
The 4 Theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort are:
- The Magic Kingdom - most people think this park is Disney World, but it is not. Disney World includes everything in the 30, 000 acres. This park is the original park that opened in 1971.
- Epcot - The second park to open in 1982.
- Hollywood Studios - This is the third park to open in 1989.
- Animal Kingdom - The newest park to open in 1998.
I hope you will join me for my series on the Wonderful World of Disney.
