You can spend one day at each of the four Disney parks, or you can stay for ten days and buy “park hopper” Disney World tickets to move freely between parks for the entire duration of your stay. There are various options for your Disney vacation, but the first step to planning your trip is deciding upon a budget and examining what each Disneyworld park has to offer!
For starters, you’ll want to buy tickets for the Magic Kingdom which is comprised of several distinct lands: Main Street USA, Mickey’s Toon Town Fair, Adventureland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland, Fantasyland and Liberty Square. Magic Kingdom was the first of the Disney parks that opened in 1971.
You’ll know it by Cinderella’s breathtaking castle, which makes for an ideal tourist photo spot. Adventureland takes you from pirate ships on the Caribbean seas to jungle cruises down the Amazon.
Frontierland takes you back to the Wild West, into saloons and on train rides. Liberty Square brings you the famous Haunted Mansion and Hall of Presidents attractions. Toon Town Fair has attractions for young children, as does Fantasyland, which is set up like a medieval carnival fair mostly geared toward children who love Peter Pan, Dumbo and Snow White. Tomorrowland is an intergalactic convention center with some rides geared toward thrill-seekers.
“The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood, not the place on the map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine a place where illusion and reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was-and always will be,” said entertainment executive Michael Eisner. Disney MGM Studios has recently been renamed Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Your Hollywood Studios tickets will be worth the money for the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, the Backlot Tour and Great Movie Ride, but there are six themed areas to explore. You can experience rides and shows themed around Star Wars, Indiana Jones, the Muppets, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Beauty and the Beast and more. For rollercoaster and thrill ride enthusiasts, don’t miss the Tower of Terror or Aerosmith’s Rock N Rollercoaster!
The Disney Animal Kingdom is the newest park, which opened in 1998. This 500-acre conservation park houses many animals that meander freely behind well-covered boundaries.
You can see wallabies, antelope, monkeys, hippos, giraffes, lions and many other animal species on your safari. Kids will especially love DinoLand. The DINOSAUR adventure ride, Bug’s Life 3-D show, Kilimanjaro Safari and Kali River Rapids are especially memorable.
Entrepreneur Michael Eisner describes, “Welcome to a kingdom of animals… real, ancient and imagined: a kingdom ruled by lions, dinosaurs and dragons; a kingdom of balance, harmony and survival; a kingdom we enter to share in the wonder, gaze at the beauty, thrill at the drama, and learn.”
Disneyland California is a stark contrast from Disney World Orlando. California’s park was the original design, so you’d miss out on Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot, which is Disney’s futuristic world showcase park. Epcot, characterized by the “big golf ball” ride, is a must-see for anyone looking into Disney World tickets!
You can visit pavilions from eleven different countries, each with rides, entertaining shows, gifts, food, costumes and culture. Epcot is a celebration of human advancement and culture that can’t be missed! Older guests often say they could spend the entire week at Epcot alone, as there is much to see, eat and do!
