Overview of Walt Disney World Theme Parks

Walt Disney World theme park is one of the most beloved tourist destinations in the city, or in the United States as a matter of fact. Walt Disney, the founder of the entire company/brand, proposed building the theme park giant in 1965; his plans came true when the theme park opened its gates in 1971. It has been integral to the Orlando economy ever since. Disney World is far more than your run-of-the-mill theme park- it actually consists of four theme parks and two water parks. Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center, Disney’s Hollywood Studios (formerly known as MGM Studios), and Disney’s Animal Kingdom make up the four main parks; Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are the two water fun parks. Each of the parks are home to famous rides, such as the Indiana Jones spectacular or the Tower of Terror. Other beloved rides include Splash Mountain and Space Mountain. Jump on any of these rides and you are sure to have an amazing time in Disney World. The first and most famous section of Disney World is known as the Magic Kingdom. Cinderella’s castle looms overhead from any corner in the kingdom. This park covers over 107 acres; it is divided into seven fantastic lands. Each of the lands, known as Main Street, U.S.A, Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, Mickey’s Toontown Fair, and Tomorrowland, have a different theme. Tomorrowland, for example, is the home of futuristic rides and shops. One popular part of the Magic Kingdom experience is the Bippidy Bobbidi Boutique, which is a beauty parlor that makes girls over as princesses and boys as pirates or “cool dudes.” This part of Disney World also features many parades which include all the favorite characters including Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Goofy, and more. Fabulous shows are also a part of the Magic Kingdom experience. Shops of every kind line the avenues at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The Buzz Lightyear Shop, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and Geiger’s Counter all offer a wide selection of various themed Disney merchandise. The Magic Kingdom is definitely the place to start any Disney trip.

The next park is Disney’s Hollywood Studios is an amazing backstage adventure. This park focuses on the thrill of Hollywood with things like live action shows, adventurous rides, back lot tours, and other wonderful events that spark the imagination. The park is decorated in the Hollywood glitz style, with Art Deco style and neon signage. Attractions include the Honey I Shrunk the Kids set, which features giant bugs and play-doh containers seen in the movie, the Studio Backlot Tour, which is a special effect extravaganza, and the Great Movie Ride, which features movie recreations. Other great attractions include the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Lights, Motor, Action Extreme Stunt Show, and Journey into Narnia: Prince Caspian. The Journey of the Little Mermaid is a live show that features special effects, including a misty atmosphere which recreates the feeling of being “under the sea.” Being in the movies is one of the best experiences and is what you will get at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Epcot, which covers an expansive 300 acres, has two sections, one of which focuses on technology. The hallmark of being in this park is the view of Spaceship Earth, a large, round sphere that looms in the horizon. Future World has shows, entertainment, attractions, and rides focused on the technological world, while World Showcase is a park that features pavilions that focus on a different country’s culture and cuisine. Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, and the United Kingdom are featured. Other countries featured in World Showcase are Japan, Morocco, and Italy. With the diversity of thirteen countries and much technology to explore, Epcot will enthrall all the visitors who enter.

The last of Disney’s main parks is dedicated to animal conservation, nature education, and fun. The oark houses more than 1,700 animals found over 500 acres of exotic terrain. As the largest animal themed park in the world, it should not surprise you that there is a ton to see and do. The theme park is divided into seven different areas, which include Oasis, Discovery Island, Camp Minnie-Mickey, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia, and Dinoland, U.S.A. This is one park experience no one will easily forget. Disney World has something to fit the needs of everyone. Little ones will love the teacups and the Dumbo ride, while older kids will enjoy the Rockin’ Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror. Those who love shows will find much satisfaction, as will those who crave delicious food. Shopping lovers will also be pleased; you can bring the whole family to this fun world.
