Who hasn’t dreamed of being a fairy tale super hero or princess, having super powers or being able to fly, at least once in their life? I think we’ve all had these fantasies, that only come true in fiction and in Disney World. This marvellous place is full of incredible surprises that astonish both adults and children alike.
Disney World is located in Orlando, in the state of Florida. Every year, all year round, this park receives millions of visitors, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.
Below are five reasons that you should not miss a visit to this magnificent place.
There are attractions for people of all ages:
Many people think that this huge theme park is only for children. Although, in the majority of the advertisements that we see for the park, there are lots of cartoon characters, you should also know that Disney World has various theme parks that are popular with adults.
Although it true that one of the most popular is the Magic Kingdom, where you can become part of the marvellous world of the Disney classics, the resort also includes parks like Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, that are also favourites with people of all ages. In these parks you will enjoy technology, learn more about programmes and films made in Hollywood and will get closer to the incredible animal world.
Guaranteed fun in the water parks:
As well as having the fantastic theme parks I mentioned above, Disney World guarantees complete joy if you visit at least one of its two waterparks.
The first of the parks opened in 1989, and in 2008, it became the most visited park of its type in the world. It consists of the biggest wave pool in the world, where you will find the scene of a tropical paradise wiped out by a typhoon, earning it the name: Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. With slides, surfing, a lazy river and many other attractions, you will love this marvellous place.
The second waterpark in Disney World is called Disney’s Blizzard Beach and it has one of the world’s highest waterslides. In this park you can try out the rapids with big drops, a trip in a chairlift to the top of Mount Gushmore (an artificial mountain over 60 metres high), or just relax in the rivers running through the park.
As well as all these attractions that can be enjoyed during the day, the waterparks often organise night activities like concerts or musical performances attended by many young people.
Hotels and luxury villas:
Another reason to visit Disney World is its fabulous hotels and villas that allow you to plan your holidays without leaving the park.
From luxury hotels to campsites under the stars, the park offers many options for all preferences. You can also book a package holiday on the park’s website, allowing you to enjoy more while spending less. Each property has a different theme depending on the park in which it is located.
The most original presents:
If you go to Disney World, you will want to take home souvenirs of your great adventure. Well, this is another reason that will make you want to visit.
With every step you will find endless offers to buy cheerful souvenirs to keep as a happy memory.
You will be able to buy cuddly toys, clothes, swimsuits and, why not, those iconic Mickey Mouse ears, in every possible form, from one of the parks many shops. All the shops are well signposted, so that you can easily find what you are looking for. You can also buy personalised gifts and take home toys of your favourite characters.
When we think of place that attracts many visitors, we often postpone our visit thinking of the long queues for the attractions or the access for the disabled or the elderly. Well, you should know that there are a number of services implemented in Disney World to ensure that no one is prevented from doing anything they want.
The resort offers various baby care centres, both fast food and gourmet food, vehicle rental for the elderly and disabled, telephone charging stations, wheelchair rental, devices that can be used by overseas visitors so that they can enjoy some of the shows in their own language, among many other services aimed at helping the clients enjoy their experience to the full.
