Through his drawing talent, Walt Disney conjured up an empire. One of his most well-known creations, Florida-based theme park Walt Disney World, opened in 1971. Also known as the Magic Kingdom, the park is home to some of Disney’s most beloved characters, including Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy. The giant resort has grown over the years, and now encompasses 47 square miles of land. It includes four theme parks, two water parks and over 20 lodging locations for its visiting guests.
