We started 2017 in a magical way, by spending a full week at Walt Disney World resort
During our vacation we stayed at the Art of Animation resort. One of the newest value resort, which brings the magic of Disney movies to life with its great décor of Finding Nemo, Lion King, Ariel and Cars.
We started our family adventure with a breakfast with Mickey at the Chef Mickey restaurant at the Disney's Contemporary Resort. From there we entered the wonders of Magic Kingdom. It was a long and amazing day, full of rides like the mine train, Ariel s Grotto, flying Dumbo, meeting the princesses and amazing shows like the Disney parade
Our second day we went on an adventure at Animal kingdom, by far my favorite resort. The tree of life is a wonder to see, and the resort has plenty to offer with it s safari, plenty of amazing shows like Finding Nemo and Lion King, and amazing rides like Mount Everest
Our third day was at Epcot, where we were surprise by how much fun we had at the park, as our kids are still young. Our daughter Arielle loved space launch. The walk around the world was pretty fun, giving our kids a little taste of the world. Had an amazing character s experience at the Garden Grill
Our 4th day was at the Hollywood studios, where we explored the wonders of Disney movies, like watching a live Indiana Jones scenes, riding Toys story ride, and seeing lots of Star Wars live characters
This was our first Disney resort family vacation, and we had such a magic fun time. I can see future Disney resort vacation for our family
The Walt Disney World Resort is an entertainment complex in Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, Florida, near Orlando and Kissimmee, Florida. The resort is the flagship destination of Disney's worldwide corporate enterprise. Opened on October 1, 1971, Walt Disney World is the most visited vacation resort in the world, with an attendance of over 52 million people annually.
The resort is owned and operated by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, a division of The Walt Disney Company. It was initially operated by Walt Disney World Company. The property covers 27,258 acres (43 sq mi; 110 km2), housing twenty-seven themed resort hotels, nine non–Disney hotels, four theme parks, two water parks, several golf courses, a camping resort, and other entertainment venues. Magic Kingdom was the first theme park to open in the complex, in 1971, followed by Epcot in 1982, Disney's Hollywood Studios in 1989, and the most recent, Disney's Animal Kingdom in 1998. Designed to supplement Disneyland in Anaheim, California, which had opened in 1955, the complex was developed by Walt Disney in the 1960s. "The Florida Project", as it was known, was intended to present a distinct vision with its own diverse set of rides.
Walt Disney's original plans also called for the inclusion of an "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow" (EPCOT), a planned community intended to serve as a test bed for new city living innovations. After extensive lobbying, the Government of Florida created the Reedy Creek Improvement District, a special government district that essentially gave The Walt Disney Company the standard powers and autonomy of an incorporated city. Walt Disney died on December 15, 1966, before construction began. Without Disney spearheading the construction, the company created a resort similar to Disneyland, abandoning experimental concepts for a planned community.
