Theme Parks

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom park is the park that most people think of when they hear somebody say “Walt Disney World”. It is the park with the castle, the most visitors, and the most attractions.


If you like exploration – whether that be visiting other countries or space or even the sea – Epcot should be on your agenda. In Epcot you can meet with your favorite princesses, explore the World Showcase, and dine at some of the best restaurants in all of the Walt Disney World Resort.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

From Star Wars to Toy Story Land and beyond, you’ll find something for just about everybody here. Whether you’re a fan of thrills or you just love that old Hollywood vibe, the recent additions and future plans make this park a popular choice for many families.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Don’t let the name of this park confuse you. Animal Kingdom is more than just a theme park with animals. It’s a collection of exotic destinations and places out of this world (like Pandora – The World of Avatar). Here you can find exciting coasters, innovative thrill rides, and yes, lots and lots of animals.

Water Parks

Blizzard Beach

Home of one of the best thrill rides in all the parks at Walt Disney World (Summit Plummet), Blizzard Beach brings the fantasy of snow in sunny Florida and a world class water park together in a family-friendly destination for anybody looking for a place to cool off and relax during their Disney World vacation.

Typhoon Lagoon

If palm trees are more your speed, you’ll find plenty of tropical ambiance at Typhoon Lagoon. Home to very unique water coaster called Crush ‘n’ Gusher and one of the largest wave pools in the world, Typhoon Lagoon is a fantastic option for anybody considering a water park during their visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

Shopping District

Disney Springs

With tons of shops, restaurants, and entertainment offerings, Disney Springs is the perfect place to spend a few hours or even an entire day. Beyond shopping, Disney Springs is also where you’ll find fun things to do like bowling at Splitsville, taking in a movie at the AMC 24, or immersing yourself in basketball at the NBA Experience.
