In a category of its own, Walt Disney World Orlando lives up to its self-proclaimed title as “The happiest place on earth.” A magical empire that has expanded to cover 43 square-miles of Central Florida, Disney pioneered the modern theme park, with immersive attractions tied in to silver-screen favorites and thrills for all ages. With upwards of 52 million visitors annually and well over a hundred attractions offered throughout the four theme parks, Walt Disney World still has several can’t-miss attractions. From a thrilling trip on the world’s most expensive roller coaster to the park’s original slow rides that forever capture the spirit of Disney, there’s no restraint on the magic of these attractions. —Zachary Laks
