He began to scout locations on the east coast to create a sister park for Disneyland, except that this new park would offer more than just one day’s worth of activities. That is how Walt Disney World was created.
After choosing land just outside of Orlando, Florida and purchasing more than 30,000 acres under bogus corporate names, Walt Disney passed away in 1966 from cancer. From that point on, Disney’s brother, Roy, over saw the development of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and the park opened to the public October 1, 1971.
Today, the Walt Disney World resort consists of four theme parks; the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Epcot is where visitors go to drink and dine around the world. Animal Kingdom houses an array of exotic animals. Hollywood Studios is home to the famous Tower of Terror ride and the Magic Kingdom is home to everyone’s favorite characters, princesses and rides. Splash Mountain, It’s a Small World, Peter Pan, the Haunted Mansion and the Carousel encompasses the park, which is currently expanding to create a larger Fantasyland, which will feature all the princess’ castles.
Disney World and all its parks are open every day of the year, including holidays. Hours vary based on season and after hours events in the park.
