Magic Everywhere! Disney Destinations Explained

What does it mean when I talk about "all Disney destinations"? When I mention Disney, most people think of Walt Disney World first, and maybe Disneyland. However, Disney has many destinations all over the world!

Read more for information about each Disney destination!

Walt Disney World

This is the most popular Disney destination, and the biggest. Walt Disney World includes 4 major theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. There are also 2 water parks (Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach), an enormous Downtown Disney area (including Cirque du Soleil), and over 20 resorts for all levels of budget! Many of my blog posts talk about how to navigate Walt Disney World. For a feel of the magic, watch this video!


The original Disneyland Park located in California is the only park Walt Disney lived to see. Although smaller than Walt Disney World, all of the Disney magic is alive and well! Disneyland Park is now part of Disneyland Resort, which also includes Disney California Adventure Park, a Downtown Disney area, and 3 Disneyland Resort Hotels.

Disney Cruise Line

The Disney Cruise Line officially began offering cruises to the Bahamas in 1998. The line has grown from one cruise ship (the Disney Magic) to four, adding the Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, and (most recently) Disney Fantasy. The Disney Cruise Line now sails out of multiple ports, including Port Canaveral (FL), Los Angeles (CA), Miami (FL), Vancouver (Canada), and Barcelona (Spain). Itineraries now include the Caribbean, as well as Alaska and Europe, with a duration of 3-10 nights. The combination of cruise amenities and Disney magic can't be beat!

Aulani Resort and Spa

What could be better than a tropical Hawaiian vacation with Disney pixie dust? Aulani Resort and Spa offers luxurious accommodations in Hawaii plus the extra flair Disney is known for.

Adventures by Disney

Explore the world with your family while benefiting from Disney's world-class service! Adventures by Disney offers tours on 6 continents, with activities for all ages.

Overseas Disney Parks

Disneyland Paris

 Disney also has multiple theme parks outside the United States. Tokyo Disneyland was the first overseas park, opening in 1983. It was followed by Disneyland Paris (1992, originally called Euro Disney), Tokyo DisneySea (2001, 2nd theme park at Tokyo Disney Resort), Walt Disney Studios Park (2002, 2nd park at Disneyland Paris), and Hong Kong Disneyland (2005).

Disney Beach Resorts

Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort

Disney has two beach resorts on the Atlantic Ocean. One is located at Hilton Head in South Carolina, and the other at Vero Beach in Florida. Both have timeshare accommodations with Disney service!


It is important to remember that while Walt Disney World is a fun and magical place, Disney has spread its magic all over the globe. I hope you will consider experiencing some of the other Disney destinations!
