Walt Disney World Resort is a resort and theme-park tourist destination located near Orlando, Florida. Built after California's Disneyland proved successful, the Walt Disney World resort covers approximately 27,5000 acres devoted to Walt Disney's vision of a destination that would provide a complete vacation opportunity for visiting families.

Resorts

From a handful of hotels and a campground when it opened in 1971, Walt Disney World has grown to 25 resorts and a campground featuring architecture designed to reflect differing themes.
