It seems like a rhetorical question for many who have already been, but it is actually a very common doubt, in this post we will explain everything so that you never have doubts about it again. Thewhere is disney!
On this post
Disney is “located” in 6 different complexes around the WORLD! Strange? Continue reading and you will know where each of the complexes is located. Disney parks around the world!.
There is a lot of confusion among people, especially between Disneyland and Disney World.
But, one thing at a time, we will explain everything here in this post! Come on ?
I believe that most people who would like to know where Disney is, are referring to Walt Disney World which is located in “Orlando” in the United States.
This is undoubtedly the Disney destination most sought after by tourists!
Simply because it has become a tourist hub for gigantic theme parks and is home not only to disney, but to several other parks.
Besides, it is undoubtedly one of the most famous tourist sites among Brazilians! Believe me, if you go to disney you will see the amount of Brazilians who will be visiting (or living) there.
Where is Disney
But there is only the Walt Disney World and Disneyland? No! In fact, there are 6 Disney complexes totaling 12 theme parks around the world.
- Walt Disney World – Florida (United States)
- Disneyland – California (United States)
- Disneyland – Paris (France)
- Tokyo Disney – Japan
- DisneyLand – Hong Kong (China)
- Shanghai Disney – Shanghai (China)
We speak complex because they are more than just a park, in some cases there are even 4 parks and dozens of hotels. YES, dozens of hotels.
Below we give a brief explanation of each of these Disney complexes and define where each one is located.
Where is Disney in the United States
Walt Disney World – Florida
But Walt Disney World isn't just that classic park with Cinderella's castle. In this resort you will find 4 theme parks, 2 water parks and MANY hotels, in addition to Disney springs!
There you find the Magic Kingdom, the famous park with that wonderful classic Cinderella castle, and 3 more disney theme parks also stay there, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal kingdom.
Each one with its details and peculiarities, all are wonderful in my opinion.
Well, notice that in the paragraph above I put orlando in quotation marks, that's because Walt Disney World is not exactly in Orlando, but in Lake Buena Vista.
But don't worry, it's a twenty-minute drive, very fast, and as everything there is connected by wonderful roads, your trips will always be very smooth.
People often refer to Walt Disney World as orlando disney, the proximity and why Orlando ended up becoming a symbol of an all-encompassing city.
And as we said above, in addition to the parks they have a LOT of hotels inside disney, we've listed the hotels you'll find in Orlando below.
- Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Disney's Beach Club Resort
- Disnandy?s BoardWalk Inn
- Disney's Contemporary Resort
- Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
- Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- Disney's Yacht Club Resort
- Disney's Caribbean beach resort
- Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
- Disney's Port Orleans Resort French Quarter
- Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside
- Disney's All-Star Movies Resort
- Disney's All-Star Music Resort
- Disney's All-Star Sports Resort
- Disney's Art of Animation Resort
- Disney's Pop Century Resort
- Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort
- Disney's Old Key West Resort
- Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
- The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- Copper Creek Villas and Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- Disney Riviera Resort
- Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
We've visited a few and stayed there too.
The Disney hotels of Orlando are an entertainment in themselves, so much so that in several of them you can find activities to spend the whole day immersed in the Disney climate and with lots of cool things to do.
Disneyland – California
Also in the United States we can find the DisneyLand Resort which consists of 2 more Disney theme parks. That is, only in the United States are found 6 theme parks so far!
Disneyland is located in California, specifically in Anaheim.
It's a much smaller Disney park compared to the gigantic Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. But what he doesn't have in size, he has importance for us disney maniacs!!
But why is California Disneyland so special?
Simply because it is the only one of all the parks that was conceived and built under the direct supervision of none other than Walter Elias Disney, or Walt Disney.
It is currently the second most visited theme park in the world (behind only Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom).
Even DisneyLand and Magic Kingdom are often compared by many because they are very similar and share “equal” attractions, they are never identical, but many are extremely similar.
Unlike Orlando, there you will find only 1 Disney park, California Adventure and not 3.
But who knows in the future we will have more Disney parks for us to visit!
There are still 4 more Disney Resorts, they are:
Where is Disney in Japan?
Tokyo Disney – Japan
We've already talked a little bit about Tokyo Disneyland here on the Blog. It can be a little confusing for those who see some photos, because the castle in this park is IDENTICAL to the one in Orlando, as you could see in some of the photos above.
In fact, there are 2 theme parks, Disneyland Tokyo and Disney Sea!
We know a few people who have visited Disney Sea and they all told us that it has the potential to be the best Disney park in the world!
We haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet, but practically every week we stop to study and watch videos of this wonderful place.
And in fact, it has everything to be one of the most incredible “Disneys”, despite the great culture shock.
Where is Disney in Europe
Disneyland – Paris (France)
- Disneyland Paris (Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney Studios Park)
We already talked a little bit about DisneyLand which is in Paris, France here on the blog!
It's a really cool park too, although obviously some attractions are in French.
But that doesn't take away from the magic of the park and it's an excellent stop for travelers from Europe, after all, Disney never hurts!
The beautiful Sleeping Beauty castle is one of the great attractions of this park.
It is just over thirty kilometers from Paris and there you will also find the main attractions present in the parks of the United States and leave nothing to be desired. It is an excellent choice for travelers from Europe.
Where is Disney in China
There are 2 as mentioned above, they are:
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (Hong Kong Disneyland)
If this castle looks tiny, it's because it really is!
Just like Disneyland in California, it's Cinderella's castle and it's quite small compared to Disney's around the world.
In terms of attractions you will find attractions very close to other disney around the world.
This is another one of the trips that is at the top of our list and we hope to be able to do a video review of it very soon.
Shanghai Disney Resort (Shanghai Disneyland)
Unlike Hong Kong Disney which has the smallest castle, Shanghai Disney has the biggest castle ever!
It's cool, in China you find both the smallest and the largest castle in the world!
It also has several attractions repeated just like the others. But don't let that put you off as it makes Disney Disney around the world.
As in the Magic Kingdom, you will find attractions more aimed at children, with the exception of the Tron roller coaster, which will also open soon at Walt Disney World as well.
Disneyland Shanghai has a Starbucks (completely empty), maps in English, an English app and signage with English translations.
You won't even find a restaurant that doesn't have pictures on the menu.
Although most cast members do not speak English, it is relatively easy to visit.
We will talk about these others Disney resorts here on the Blog.
We are planning a really cool guide on each of them. Despite not being as “famous” as the Disney parks from the United States, they are guaranteed fun for everyone and they all have very good features!
Many attractions are unique to some of these parks so without a doubt it is worth visiting each one of them.
