Walt Disney World covers more than forty square miles.
Its size alone can overwhelm guests. The major parks are the Magic Kingdom,
Epcot, Disney Studios, and Animal Kingdom. California’s Disneyland,
by comparison, could fit in the parking lot of Epcot. There are theme
parks, golf courses, water parks, and more than a dozen hotels on site.
Disney World is the ultimate family vacation.
You need to decide when to go, how to get there, where

There are two excellent references: the official guide

our guides, you are ready to plan your dream vacation.

magic, but visitors all agree: a Disney World vacation is an unforgettable
