Disney World through the Years


Walt Disney World opened on October 1st, 1971 and began it's journey through time entertaining people from all over the world with Magic Kingdom, it's first theme park.  Epcot Center, the second theme park in Walt Disney World, opened it's gates on October 1st, 1982 and was followed by MGM Studios (now Hollywood Studios) on May 1st, 1989 and Animal Kingdom on April 22nd, 1998.

Through the years, Disney World has incorporated two water parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon) and several themed resorts and shopping areas.  It is pretty safe to say that Walt Disney World's property is a city of it's own within Osceola County, Florida.  Disney World has grown to become the most popular and visited theme attraction in the world.

Disney Water Parks

Disney is home to two exciting water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.  Both water parks offer great ways to cool off in the Florida sun.  Each park has a theme to it that make them both very unique.  Blizzard Beach has, naturally, a snowy winter theme that seems to make everything just a little bit cooler.  Typhoon Lagoon is themed after a "Disney legend" of a typhoon that crashed down on a tropical paradise leaving shipwrecks, surf boards, and other ocean worthy equipment strewn about.
