Walt Disney World
- Type: Amusement Parks
- Time to Spend: More than Full Day
|About these ratings|
Excessive, exhausting and expensive, Walt Disney World is above all else enchanting. There's no other place that offers quite the same brand of child-like wonder and family fun. Even Disneyland in California can't compete, according to some. But don't take our word for it: "No matter the age, Walt Disney World is magical! They've done a wonderful job at making it a new experience every year by adding new features and updating old ones," gushed one TripAdvisor user.
Of course there are a few caveats. Disney World is immense and spread out across nearly 30,000 acres in four theme parks, two water parks, several golf courses and eateries plus a downtown district and more. And tickets are expensive; regardless of whether you're visiting for just a day (adults can enjoy the Magic Kingdom for $99; kids ages 3 to 9 for $93) or several days (a two-day package for one adult costs $188). Most suggest you break Disney World up over the course of several days; otherwise the expense may not be worth it. One TripAdvisor reviewer also offered this piece of advice: "Make sure you map out your way before going, it will save you a lot of time and you will get to see more attractions."
Located in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Walt Disney World's prices vary by the number of days you're staying, the number of parks you're visiting and whether you're also staying overnight in one of the resort villas, hotels or campgrounds. Additionally, each park has different opening and closing hours. Visit the official website for further details.
