Orlando wouldn’t be Orlando without its famous theme park attraction, Disney World. Amazing how each and every person in the world regardless of age knows Mickey Mouse and the rest of the Disney characters. Walt Disney has touched the hearts of many people all around the world and an Orlando vacation would be incomplete without visiting Disney World which covers an immense area of over 30,000 acres.
