Walt Disney amusement parks

Walter Elias, Disney founder, along with his brother Roy of the  Walt Disney Productions company, was a significant producer, director, and screenwriter, considered an international icon, especially for creating some of the world’s best-known animation characters as the great Mickey Mouse.

Many people don’t know, but Walter Disney was awarded 26 Oscars and nominated a total of 59 times. Disney died on December 15, 1966, but to this day, his spirit is still alive among us in his drawings and especially in his Disney amusement parks.

Curiously, it all began with the idea that he had had since the 40s, to build a park so that his family and employees could have fun in their free time, and from there to the  Disney amusement parks that are around the world today, and of which we are going to talk about below:

  1. Anaheim – California

“To all who visit this happy place, welcome …” With these words, Walt Disney inaugurated Disneyland in July 1955.

This was the first Disney amusement park, located 40 km from Los Angeles in Anaheim. Here, Walter Disney’s dream came true.

This is the happiest place in the world! A place where imagination is the final destination, a park created for the young, the old and the children. There, you cannot miss the incredible parade of the stars with all their favorite Disney characters.

  1. Orlando – Florida

Sixteen years after creating the first Disneyland, Roy O, Walter’s brother, opened Disney World in Orlando, creating a magical world of unprecedented family fun. It has:

– 4 theme parks, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom

– Two Blizzard Beach Typhoon Lagoon water parks

It has 32 hotels, six golf courses, two full-service spas, Disney’s Wedding Pavilion, a Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex, and Downtown Disney.

  1. Tokyo – Japan

In 1983 the company’s third park was inaugurated and the first to be opened outside the United States, Tokyo Disneyland. This park is located in the city of Urayasu and, together with another park that later opened  Tokyo DisneySEA, forms the Tokyo Disney Resort, the only one not managed by the Walt Disney Company.

  1. Paris – France

With  ​​1,943 hectares and 32 km from Paris, the Disneyland Paris Theme Park has more than 50 attractions and shows in its five themed countries. It also combines a magical mix of fairy tale and futuristic architecture that invites you to live a dream vacation. The park is usually open 365 days a year.

  1. Hong kong – China

In 2005, Disneyland opened in Hong Kong. It is the fifth Disney park built in the Magic Kingdom category and the newest. It is located on the lush island of Lantau.

The park is signposted in Chinese and English. Otherwise, it would be challenging to understand the map. The park’s capacity is 34,000 visitors per day, making it the smallest Disney park of all.
