Americans grow up on Disney and whether you’re six or 60, the magic never stops—and who wants it to? By sheer size, the 40-square-mile resort can be mind-boggling, so let’s simplify it.
First there are four major theme parks: Magic Kingdom
, the traditional family park where Mickey and Minnie Mouse reign; Epcot
, where the Future World (science and technology attractions) meets the World Showcase (pavilions featuring the culture, foods and people of 11 countries); Disney’s Hollywood Studios
, a park centered around America’s film and entertainment industry; and Disney’s Animal Kingdom
, where guests learn about the animals of Asia and Africa through fun interactive shows and attractions.
But that’s just the beginning. Disney also has two water parks, 35 themed hotels, five golf courses, countless dining adventures and annual festivals; it’s home to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and has its own Downtown and Boardwalk. Oh and let’s not forget bass fishing in Disney’s lakes, driving a real NASCAR racecar and firework displays galore!
