With miles of fun, old and new characters to meet, places to eat and tons to do, there is never going to be a more perfect time than right now, to make your dreams come true with a Walt Disney World vacation.
Thinking about going to Walt Disney World? Great! First let me tell you a little bit about Walt Disney World.
Wanting to make Disneyland bigger and better, Walt Disney set out to find the perfect place to build his dream. He found it in Bay Lake, Florida. He secretly began buying land in large acreages cheaply until word got out that it was Disney buying the land for a new theme park. Once the secret was out, the price of land boomed. Walt Disney died on December 15th, 1966 before construction began on WDW. His brother Roy took the reins to make his brother’s dream come true.
Walt Disney World opened on October 1, 1971. Magic Kingdom was the only park along with The Contemporary and Polynesian resort. Several of the original rides are still opened today at WDW.
From cast members, to the resorts, pools, attractions, numerous dining, and Disney’s own transpiration, Disney World takes into a world full of magic, wonder, and fun.
Disney property covers over 27,000 acres so there is plenty of more growth for parks, resorts, restaurants, golf course and just plain ole fun. Disney offers over 25 themed resorts, 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, and 4 golf courses (2 are themed miniature golf courses).

EPCOT opened on October 1, 1982. EPCOT sits on 300 acres and is located off Interstate 4 on the Walt Disney World Resort property. EPCOT is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.
Walt Disney himself said that: “EPCOT will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing, and testing, and demonstrating new materials and new systems. And EPCOT will always be a showcase to the world of the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise.”
EPCOT has two main themed areas, Future World and World Showcase. In Future World you can blast off through space, glide over the world, and drive a car you design. Future World is the host to several different pavilions which offer unique attractions, shopping, and dining for just that area. EPCOT World Showcase is where you can experience, dine, shop, and interact with 11 countries and the people who live there.
