Disney World… A World in Itself

4 Nov

Since Disney World opened its doors in the 1970s the park has grown to become a center of our society’s culture. This 35 billion dollar empire attracts millions of visitors each year and consists of vacation resorts, theme parks, water parks and thirty nine hotels.

Disney world alone amounts for most of the jobs  in Orlando, and did you know it is the largest single-site employer in the United States? People travel from all over the world to visit Disney and get lost in its fantasy. It is amazing to see what Disney World has become and it is exciting to see what this ever growing “land of fun” will come up with next.

    Wow, I did not know that Disney World is the largest single-site employer in the US, that’s insane. I’d like to learn more about the Disney program that UMass conducts. I’m sure students who participate in that learn a lot about the corporation and how business works at the different parks and hotels. Maybe they would have some useful information for us.
