  • Area Guide: Things To See, Places To Go!

 

The Magic Kingdom Park

  • The Magic Kingdom Park is what springs to mind for most people when you mention Disney. The park does get busy so get there early and you'll see so much more. Stop by the new Fantasy land and ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Dumbo or any of the amazing attractions located in this land. Take a thrill ride across the galaxy on' Space Mountain', explore the ghostly happenings at the Haunted Mansion, or prepare to get wet with Brer Rabbit and friends on 'Splash Mountain'. Do try and catch one of the wonderful parades featuring some of your favorite Disney characters, and don't come home before you've seen the fireworks high above Cinderella Castle. It's a long day but an absolute must!

 

Disney's Animal Kingdom
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is an adventure involving the very real, the imaginary and the extinct! Ride 'Kilimanjaro Safaris' where the animals are almost close enough to touch. Come face to face with a magnificent troop of gorillas, or travel back in time on 'Dinosaur'. Asia is the newest area of the park where you can cool off on 'Kali River Rapids'. Animal Kingdom is a great combination of the magic and fun of Disney and all that mother nature has to offer. Make sure you get there early when the animals are at their most active and don't miss the 'Lion King Stage Show' and the highly amusing 'It's Tough To Be A Bug'.

 

Disney Hollywood Studios
  • Take a journey through 'tinsel town', courtesy of the Disney Hollywood Studios. Battle imperial star-fighters on Star Tours, then it's on to the exciting Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, Jim Henson's Muppet 3D movie, and superb live shows like the Lights, Camera, Action Stunt show. Try and make time for the afternoon parade featuring characters from the latest animated Disney blockbusters. The highlight for many guests is 'Fantasmic!' as Mickey Mouse battles the evil fantasy villains with a barrage of fireworks, water and lasers and don't miss the Rock N Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.

 

Epcot
  • The Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow is a showcase for cutting edge technology along with an eclectic mix of international entertainment and cuisine. In Future World you get an enthralling look at how our modern world has developed along the very latest developments in science and technology, and it's all dine in a fun and often interactive setting. Make sure you see 'Honey I Shrunk The Audience'- Disney's 3D magic is not to be missed! World Showcase, on the other hand, features the traditions and cultures of people from around the world. Eat and drink your way around the globe in a day and don't miss 'Illuminations: Reflections of Earth' every night around the World Showcase lagoon - it's truly a breathtaking event.

 

Disney Springs
  • The complex includes four distinct areas: Marketplace, The Landing, Town Centre, and West Side. Buses and water taxis operated by Disney Transport provide transportation between Disney Springs and other areas of Walt Disney World.

    Marketplace

    The Marketplace houses many shops and restaurants reminiscent of the American Craftsman-style of the 1930s. The first restaurant in the Earl of Sandwich chain is located here. T-Rex Cafe is a dinosaur-themed restaurant operated by Landry's Restaurants, which features animatronic dinosaurs. Landry's Restaurants also operates Rainforest Cafe at this location.

    The Landing

    The Landing depicts the fictional town's transportation hub and marina. The Landing features nautical-themed restaurants and shops, including Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar—an aviation-themed dive bar based on the character from the Indiana Jones films—and The Boathouse, which serves as the port for the amphibious automobiles that offer cruises of Lake Buena Vista.

    Town Centre

The Town Centre area also features the namesake "springs", which is artificial. The area debuted in 2016, having been built on former surface parking lots, and features many well-known retailers. Retailers to have opened in the first phase of Town Centre include Anthropologie, Sephora, L'Occitane en Provence, Pandora, UGG, Johnston & Murphy, ZARA and Kate Spade and Trophy Room among many others.

    West Side

    West Side depicts the town's exposition centre. The complex has now been renamed AMC Disney Springs 24 and features a 20 cinema complex to catch the latest films, live music at the House of Blues, and numerous excellent eateries like Wolfgang Puck Café and Bongos Cuban Care. The amazing Cirque Du Soleil, a mix of street theatre and circus artistry, is hard to describe and it's not the cheapest ticket in town - even though it's worth every penny.



 

Disney water parks are great fun and suitable for all ages, Makes sure you have some good sun block and keep re-applying it throughout the day. In the blazing heat of the summer 3-4 hours without any shade is plenty so don't overdo it.
  • Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is a highly unusual ski resort where the snow has melted and turned the place into a mecca for water rides and slides - look out for the one and only 'Summit Plummet' and hang onto that swimsuit.
  • Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is home to the biggest surf wave ever to hit Florida and is a tropical paradise full of slick flumes and giant slides like the 'Humunga Kowabunga'. Makes sure you take time to snorkel 'Sharks Reef'.

Gatorland
