Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World was opened on October 1st 1971 and soon developed into the largest entertainment complex in the world. Here in 1963 Walt Disney had found a site on which he could realise his concept of a clean and perfect holiday landscape: a great expanse of open country not too far away from the holiday centres on the coast of Florida, good communications and a climate which made all-year-round operation possible.
One of the top 10 tourist destinations in the US, the 28000-acre Walt Disney World is composed of the following facilities and attractions:
Magic Kingdom Park
Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon
More than a dozen resort hotels
Disney Wide World of Sports complex
A number of golf courses
Several shopping and entertainment zones like Downtown Disney or Disney Village Marketplace.
Walk Disney World is located outside of Orlando in Lake Buena Vista but most people will make travel arrangements, usually flights, to Orlando.
