WDW Fun Fact #2

Fun Fact #2: Walt Disney World Resort is approximately the size of San Francisco, or two Manhattan islands. At 40 square miles, less than 35% of this land has been developed, with 25% of this land designated for wilderness preserves. 

On the map below, you can see how much undeveloped land exists on the WDW property.

The Walt Disney World Resort is located in Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida. Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake are cities in Orange County. Both cities are municipalities controlled by the Disney Company, and are governed by the Reedy Creek Improvement District. The RCID provides fire protection, emergency medical services, environmental protection, utilities and road maintenance, among other things.
