6. Know the Differences Between the Parks
If you've never been to WDW before, you may not realize that it's actually split into four main parks, each with its own set of "lands" to explore. Here's a quick summary of the parks:
1. Magic Kingdom — The one people tend to think of as Disney World. This is where you'll find the iconic Cinderella Castle, as well as many of the most classic rides and lands.
2. Epcot — This is where the giant silver "golf ball" (aka Spaceship Earth) lives. Epcot is split into two main sections: Future World, which focuses on the world of tomorrow, and the World Showcase, which allows you to visit facsimiles of 11 countries around the world.
3. Hollywood Studios — A celebration of film, television, and theater, Hollywood Studios is home to attractions based on Star Wars, Toy Story, Indiana Jones, The Muppets, Disney Junior, and more.
4. Animal Kingdom — Connect with your wild side at Animal Kingdom, where you can encounter exotic creatures, visit the prehistoric past, and even journey into Pandora — The World of Avatar.
