Walt Disney World is one of the most visited amusement parks in the world, and it is easy to see why.

It is the most magical place on earth!

Walt Disney World in Florida Theme parks

Disney World in Florida consists of four theme parks, two water parks, a shopping district, numerous resorts and even golf courses (both mini and traditional).

Preparing for a trip to Disney World can be overwhelming! That is why we have come up with a fully comprehensive Disney World Vacation Planning Guide.

It should not only answer many of the questions you have, but should also help you get started thinking about everything from when to travel to how much to budget for.

Disney World (Map & Park Information)

Disney World Map & Theme Park Information

When you look at the Disney World Map, you can see where the theme parks are in relation to each other along with the Skyliner and Monorail system.

It is pretty spread out, but all contained within the Disney bubble.

If you have never been to Disney World, I can tell you that you can easily spend a week in the Disney bubble and not see everything there is to see.

The main thing you will want to do is make sure that you hit all four of the major theme parks as each one is completely different and offers unique experiences.
