Visit Disney World, Florida
Walt Disney World Resort – Since the first guests walked down Main Street, U.S.A., on Oct. 1, 1971, Walt Disney World Resort has become an iconic destination for millions of families around the world. Today, it is home to four theme parks, two water parks, five golf courses, 26 owned-and-operated resorts and hundreds of merchandise and dining experiences. Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members represent more than 80 nationalities and speak more than 50 languages. The largest single-site employer in the United States, Walt Disney World is also undergoing a massive expansion project across the resort.
The expansion includes the 2012 opening of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom park, which nearly doubled the size of the original land. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the "crown jewel" of New Fantasyland, opened in 2014. Recently, Disney announced that it will break ground on a 14-acre Star Wars-themed land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2016, and shared new creative details for Pandora – The World of AVATAR, which will be part of the largest expansion in the history of Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Outside the parks, Disney Springs is more than halfway through its transformation into a timeless and vibrant retail, dining and entertainment district that celebrates the turn-of-the century lakeside towns that dotted the Florida landscape.
