The Spaceship Earth sphere is the symbol of Epcot.
Mickey's Sorceror's Hat is the symbol of Disney-MGM Studios.
The Tree of Life is the symbol of Disney's Animal Kingdom. Owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company, Walt Disney World Resort is home to four theme parks, two water parks, more than twenty resort hotels, six golf courses, and various shopping and entertainment areas covering a total of 47 square miles (122km2) in Orange and Osceola Counties, Florida, USA .
Most of the Walt Disney Company's Central Florida land, and all of the public areas, are located in the Cities of Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, which are both contained in the Reedy Creek Improvement District. These governmental entities, controlled by the Walt Disney Company, are located southwest of Orlando and a few miles northwest of Kissimmee.
The Walt Disney World Resort opened on October 1, 1971. It is the largest theme park resort in the world, although Dubai Land, twice its size, is planned to open in 2006.
