Walt Disney World® Resort

Family fun at Walt Disney World® Resort.Family fun at Walt Disney World® Resort.

An enormous resort in Orlando, Walt Disney World® Resort consists of four themeparks and four waterparks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disney's Blizzard Beach and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon.

Because there is so much to do there, we recommend money-saving ticket packages combining access to several parks (2-, 7-, 14 and 21-day tickets are available). You can also add options to see shows and enjoy a meet-and-greet with Disney characters or even have a meal with them. Or combine Walt Disney World® Resort tickets with tickets for Universal Orlando Resort, Seaworld, LEGOLAND Florida and more. 

Read our tips for making the most of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort.
