Visitors consistantly marvel at the incredible size of the Walt Disney. How large is the World Resort? The property is approximately 40 square miles - the land features Disney's world-class entertainment and recreation center which incorporates four theme parks, two water adventure parks, 34 resort hotels, 81 holes of golf on five courses, Disney's Wedding Pavilion, Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex and Downtown Disney's entertainment-shopping-dining complex.

Located just 20 miles southwest of Orlando, Walt Disney in Lake Buena Vista FL. The majority of Disney property is located within Orange County Florida, with a portion in Osceola County.

Warm temperatures and sunny skies have made the Walt Disney Theme Parks and the Orlando area one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Here in Orlando, the opening of Disney in October of 1971 has stimulated the Orlando economy creating over 60,000 jobs just within the Walt Disney World Resorts sparking the demand for other tourist related venues including restaurants, hotels and other minor attractions.

DISNEY HOTELS

Over the years, Walt Disney Resorts has grown to include a large selection of hotels that have a price to fit most budgets. To compete with the barrage of modestly priced hotel rooms that can be found on International Drive and in Kissimmee, Disney has created a whole selection of value and moderate resorts. Following Disney's style, the resorts are uniquely constructed and consist of themed pools and play areas. As the prices increase, so do the amenities - ranging from modest food courts to world class restaurants. Still available are the Deluxe Resorts such as the classic Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and the ever-popular Contemporary Inn Resort.
