Walt Disney World is probably the number one thing people who travel to Orlando want to see. The spacious resort has four theme parks, two water parks, a dining and shopping district and over 20 on-site, Disney-owned hotels. Starting October 1, Walt Disney World will begin to celebrate its 50th anniversary with "The World's Most Magical Celebration." The festivities will be held around Walt Disney World and include the debut of new attractions, new nighttime fireworks shows, new daytime entertainment and more.
