Walt Disney World® Resort

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando? If the answer is “theme parks,” you’re not wrong … but between water parks, world-class resorts and the dining, entertainment and shopping mecca that is Disney Springs, theme parks only tell half of Disney’s story.

Walt Disney World Resort’s crown jewel is the Magic Kingdom Park, which offers some of Disney’s most iconic attractions, magical encounters with beloved Disney characters, and special seasonal events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. At Disney’s Epcot, explore Earth’s past, present and future and enjoy annual celebrations like fall’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and spring’s Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

Mother Nature takes center stage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, which will transport you to some of the most remote locations on the planet without leaving Orlando. Then, it’s time for lights, camera and plenty of action at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney's stunning salute to movies.

Speaking of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, for the first time ever, there’s a place where you can live your very own Star Wars™ story. A place where you can fly the galaxy’s most legendary ship, the Millennium Falcon. A place where you’ll find yourself caught in a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. With a whole new land, you can finally live your adventure in a galaxy far, far away. Welcome to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, now open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.

And the thrills still aren’t done! Disney also has two water parks in Orlando, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, which are themed around a melting ski resort and a storm-tossed tropical paradise, respectively.

You’ll discover unique dining and shopping throughout Disney’s theme parks and water parks, but Disney Springs takes both to a rarefied level. Not only does it feature the highest concentration of celebrity chefs in Orlando, but admission and parking are always free!

Disclaimer: Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and its experiences are subject to capacity. StarWars: Rise of the Resistance is not available at opening and will open later in the year.
