ATTRACTIONS — USA:
Disney World in Orlando


Encompassing an area bigger than the island of Manhattan, the Walt Disney World Resort includes four theme parks, each of them utterly unique.

Magic Kingdom Park prides itself on its enchanting entertainment, classic attracts, beloved Disney characters, parades and fireworks – all in all it is called “a place where fairytale dreams can come true.”

Epcot Park, on the other hand, is known for attractions and entertainment dedicated to technological innovation and the culture and cuisine of 11 nations.

Hollywood Studios Park, in turn, offers a world of big screen thrills, music, animation and live shows that resemble the style of Broadway.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park is the world's largest animal-themed park full of attractions, adventure and fantastic animals.

In addition, there are two water parks: Blizzard Beach, featuring one of the world's tallest and fastest waterslides, as well as slides and rides for the whole family, and Typhoon Lagoon, which includes attractions for the whole family—from fast waterslides to a children's area with pint-sized raft rides. Here, you can catch 6-foot waves in the Surf Pool and snorkel Shark Reef—with real sharks!
