"If you have never been to Disney World before, I recommend going to Magic Kingdom first. It represents all Disney has to offer.” – Kenneth, Front Desk

“If you aren’t interested in the parades, it’s one of the best times to get on the popular attractions since most guests will be watching the parade.” - Christine, Sales
If you drink from the fountain behind Cinderella’s castle, you will be aligned with the mural in the background showing the crown on your head.
The presidential seal on the floor of the Hall of Presidents is the only other presidential seal in the world other than the one in the Oval Office in the White House.
In 1976, 50 replicas of the Liberty Bell were made out of the original's cast, and one was donated to each state. Since Philadelphia had the original, it agreed to give its replica to Disney, making Florida the only state with two replica bells. (The other Florida replica is in Melbourne.)

Disney's Blizzard Beach® Water Park
Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is the polar opposite of other water parks…a melted ski resort in the middle of Florida! From bunny slopes to black diamonds, this place is packed with downhill thrills and plenty of ways to cold chill. So come zip down the 120-foot-tall Summit Plummet waterslide, tackle a fast-paced tube run, take on the Teamboat Springs family raft ride or enjoy a leisurely float along a creek. And little ones can have big fun at Tike’s Peak––a special play area full of scaled-down, kid-size slides, rides and water jets.
Go against the tide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. It blows other water parks away! ’Cause after the storm of storms blew through, it left this tropical paradise full of twisting slides, sandy beaches and the largest inland wave pool around in its wake. Come thrill out on the churning, turning Crush ’n’ Gusher water coaster, chill out on the beach or cruise a creek. At least to start out with! You’ll also find slides, rides and bubbling jets for the little ones at Ketchakiddee Creek.
Water Parks subject to closure for refurbishment, as well as seasonal and weather closures.
