Walt Disney World in Orlando is the largest and busiest theme park in the world. It is so large that it is more properly called a vacation area because, in fact, it is composed of four separate theme parks, two water parks, and a host of other attractions and sites, including Main Street, U.S.A., Downtown Disney, and the Wide World of Sports Complex.

A common mistake many people make about Disney World is misnaming it as Disney Land or Disneyland. There is no Disney Land Orlando. Disneyland is the original Disney theme park located in Anaheim, California. In comparison, the size of Disneyland is 85 acres (0.133 square miles) and attracts about 16 million visitors per year. Disney World in Orlando is 30,080 acres (47.0 square miles) in size and attracts a combined total of 47 million visitors to its four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. It is best to think of Disney World as a planned guest community complete with a public transportation system and its own post office.

Many visitors to Disney World choose to stay in one of the many resort hotels located on the Disney World grounds. These resorts can be categorized into three groups: deluxe hotels, moderate hotels, and value hotels. Here are the number one hotels in each of these categories:
