Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World Resort in Florida: make dreams come true!

Every kid (and big kid) dreams of going to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Isn’t it about time you made the dream a reality and got you and the family some Disney Park Tickets? Thought so.

With six magical Parks – including two thrilling Water Parks – two dazzling neighbourhoods of night-time entertainment, and more than 25 unique Disney Resort Hotels to choose from, it's easy to see why Walt Disney World Resort is one of the most beloved holiday destinations in the world.

With Disney theme Park tickets, you’ll have access to every area of Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, including Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Epcot, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
and more. The littlest ones will love splashing away at Ketchakiddee Creek or exploring the gorilla-inhabited jungles of Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail.

For those who can take the thrill, the world-famous Splash Mountain and Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom Park have a reputation for a reason; 5-storey drops and high-speed twists and turns are the name of the game – even the bravest among you will feel the adrenaline rush!

The fun doesn’t stop after dark, either! By night, marvel at Rivers of Light, the immersive nighttime spectacular at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and fall in love with the magic of nature. Or how about heading to Pandora - The World of AVATAR, where the floating mountains and bioluminescent plants bring the world of the Na’vi to life? Of course, no day at Walt Disney World is complete without ooh-ing and aah-ing at the nightly Happily Ever After fireworks show. Fireworks never looked so good.

But Walt Disney World Resort isn’t all rides and log flumes — make sure you get to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to meet your favourite Disney Characters in the flesh, Hurtle up and down on a haunted, elevator-themed ride, or catch Beauty and the Beast live on stage. Star Wars™ fans can enrol in Jedi training, too, and family bonding has never been as fun as it is rafting over waterfalls at Miss Adventure Falls.

When you’re all tired out from rides and adventuring, there’s no better time to head to Sandy White Beach at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park for a well-deserved chill. Kids can play in the Surf Pool, so, parents – this is your time to properly relax.

Basically, Walt Disney World Resort is your oyster, and a magical one at that. There’s no right way to do it. So long as you do it.

Choose from one of our expertly selected Walt Disney World Resort packages and book your Disney Park Tickets today. It goes without saying that all the faff is taken care of, so all you need to do is remember your passport (and have as much fun as possible, of course).
