Disney Resorts and Theme Parks Around the World
Did you know that Disney has 6 Disney resorts and 12 theme parks around the world? The Disney respots are Disneyland Resort Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Shanghai Disney.
We have been planning a trip to Japan and I want to add Tokyo Disney to our itinerary. Which brought me to the question – how many Disney Resorts are there in the world?
I gathered interesting facts and information about each of the 6 locations and 12 theme parks. The resorts, parks, and information are listed here in order of the date each opened.
I reviewed the ticket prices for each and included a basic admissions price as of 2019. Of course, each Disney has multiple options of multi-day and multi-park passes so it is difficult to compare the exact prices.
The admission prices listed here are just for informational purposes because I think it is interesting how much less some locations cost.
Each worldwide Disney location is similar but each has unique aspects that are worth a visit.
