Walt Disney World Map
So you are busy planning that magical vacation at Walt Disney World Orlando, FL. Your family is going to have wonderful memories - that is unless you find yourself going in circles because you are lost.
When you think of Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom pops into one's mind but few envision 27,000 acres that incorporate the theme parks. Walt Disney World in Orlando FL is twice the size of Manhattan - wow! Magic Kingdom was the first them built back in 1971. In 1982 the Epcot theme was added which is twice as big as the Magic Kingdom, taking Walt Disney World from magic to educational.
Then in 1989 it took on an element of glam and glitz with the addition of MGM Studios. And the last theme to be added was the Animal Kingdom sending a message of harmony among living creatures. It's a small world after all.
The trouble is finding your way around 27,000 acres without a Walt Disney World resort map. It can leave you frustrated and downright crabby. After all the kids are whining, you are tired of walking in circles not finding what you are looking for and your wasting valuable vacation time. Anyone would be crabby.
The great news is that you can find a free Walt Disney World map for every theme park online. You can download them or view them on your screen and you can even plan your days at each resort in advance because you can see where everything is.
The Walt Disney World resort maps outline each theme park in detail right down to where you can find the washrooms. Your hotel will also have free handout maps that are nice and glossy, and you can give one to each member in your family so that there is no fighting over the maps.
It's a good idea to get a map of each theme park separately so that things are legible. Many of the ones handed out by the park and resorts are divided into four sections and then folded into a compact brochure. That way you have all the theme parks with you at one time.
But still doing this doesn't always provide as much detail as you might like to see, in which case you'll want to find one of those bigger placemat style maps. You've probably seen them in the restaurant. They're very handy - nice light paper makes them very foldable, but replace them every day - you will easily wreck them.
If you are planning on spending some time off the Disney grounds then you'll want to extent the Walt Disney World map out into areas of Orlando FL depending on where you want to visit. There are all kinds of maps available online.
So whether you are looking for a Walt Disney World resort map, a map for the Magical Kingdom or a road map of Orlando FL you can either find them online and print them, or you can pick them up when you arrive.
