Orlando, Florida

Disney World

Disney World opened in 1971. Disneyland in California already existed at that time, but it had hardly any visitors from the eastern parts of the United States where 75 percent of the country's population live. So Walt Disney decided to build another park in Orlando, Florida with four theme parks:

  • The Magic Kingdom
  • EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow)
  • Disney-MGM Studios
  • Disneys Animal Kingdom

Cinderella Castle
