Walt Disney World Resort in Florida

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

An enormous resort in Orlando, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida consists of 6 magical Disney Parks; Magic Kingdom Park, Disney® Hollywood Studios (home to 2019's big new attraction Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge), Disney® Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Epcot, Disney® Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney® Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.

Because there is so much to do there, we recommend money-saving ticket packages combining access to several parks (7-, 14 and 21-day tickets are available; the 14-day ticket is currently the best value option for families where you pay for just 7 days but have double the fun over 14 days). Take advantage of FastPass+, plus Memory Maker, which is included in all Disney Ultimate Tickets* (worth $199 on the gate), making this a fantastic money saving option.

Read our tips for making the most of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort and check out our recent visit to California's newest Disney attraction Star Wars Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, for a taste of what is to come to Florida in August 2019.

Best for: The whole family!

But this brand new attraction offers much more than just thrilling interactive rides; you can build your own lightsaber, design a droid, dine in Oga's Cantina or inside a working hangar bay for a feast that is out of this world, you can even drink the blue or green milk that Luke Skywalker famously drank in the films. And then you can shop to kit yourself out depending on where you pledge you allegiance.
Best for young children: Toy Story Land, Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy and Jedi Training: Trials of the Temples.
Best for older children and teens: Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Star Tours - The Adventure Continues and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith.
