Walt Disney World
The world’s largest and most-visited family recreational resort, Walt Disney World consists of four different theme parks. Magic Kingdom is patterned after the original Disneyland and features exhibits and rides based on classic Disney characters and films. Epcot (or Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) is devoted to technical innovation and international culture. Epcot is notable for its “futuristic” approach, particularly in architecture. Epcot has become famous for the festivals it hosts annually, including the Flower and Garden and Food and Wine Festivals. Hollywood Studios is a show business-themed park, celebrating the Golden Age (1930s-40s) of Hollywood. The largest theme park in the world is Animal Kingdom. The park is dedicated to animal conservation, of which Walt Disney was a pioneer.
Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure comprise the Universal Orlando Resort. Universal Studios offers rides and exhibits created around current and classic action-type films. From Jaws, Men in Black, Twister and even The Simpsons, old and young alike can relive their favorites and even be a part of the films via innovative 3-and-4D technology. Universal Studios is also a shopping and dining paradise, offering visitors a total vacation adventure.
Islands of Adventure is a world of exploration, with six islands devoted to classic adventure films. Jurassic Park and the Harry Potter-themed island, along with Seuss Landing is especially popular with children. Enjoy the Green Eggs and Ham Cafe and try to keep the kids from returning to the Seuss-themed rides.
