WALT DISNEY WORLD ® RESORT, LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLORIDA

Walt Disney World ® is the most visited and largest recreational resort in the world, containing four theme parks; two water parks; twenty-three themed hotels; and numerous shopping, dining, entertainment and recreation venues. Owned and operated by the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts segment of The Walt Disney Company, it is located southwest of Orlando, Florida. The property is often abbreviated Walt Disney World ® or Disney World and is often referred to by locals as simply Disney.


Cinderella's Castle, Walt Disney World

Despite marketing claims and popular misconceptions, Florida's Walt Disney World ® resort is not located within the Orlando city limits, but is in its own cities: Lake Buena Vista, and Bay Lake, just south of the city within southwestern Orange County, with the remainder in adjacent Osceola County. Most of the resort's land is located in the Orange County cities of Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, about 21 miles southwest of Orlando.

The 25,000 acre site is accessible from Central Florida's Interstate 4 via Exits 62B (World Drive), 64B (US 192 West), 65B (Osceola Parkway West), 67B (SR 536 West), and 68 (SR 535 North), and Exit 8 on State Road 429 (Florida), the Western Expressway.
