The world famous Walt Disney World Resort which comprises 4 theme parks plus 2 water parks is located in Orlando which well deserve being referred to as the theme park capital of the world. In addition to Walt Disney World Resort, there are numerous theme parks such as Universal Studios, Dinosaur World, The Holyland Experience, and many more.
