* '''Walt Disney World Resort''': The largest and most popular of the resorts opened in 1971, located near UsefulNotes/{{Orlando}}, UsefulNotes/{{Florida}}. Includes four parks: Magic Kingdom (based largely on the original Disneyland), Epcot (devoted to science, technology, and cultures of the world; opened in 1982 as EPCOT Center), Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly Disney-[[Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer MGM]] Studios [with a third name to be announced in the future] and focusing on movie/moviemaking-related attractions, 1989) and Animal Kingdom (combo of theme park and wildlife park, 1998), as well as two (formerly three[[note]]The original, ''River Country'' opened in 1976, but eventually became very outdated compared to its sister parks and closed permanently in 2001[[/note]]) water parks: Typhoon Lagoon (1989) and Blizzard Beach (1995). Fans constantly debate which of the four parks is the best, whether they were better in the old days, and so on. Disney World also includes many hotels, an all-purpose sports complex, golf courses, and a few shopping/dining/entertainment complexes like Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney among other past names).\\

* '''Tokyo Disney Resort''': Opened in 1983 and is the first (and only) franchise Disney resort, owned and operated by the Oriental Land Company rather than by Disney itself. Some additions such as Pooh's Honey Hunt and the Tokyo [=DisneySea=] park have become some of Disney Imagineering's most lavishly praised creations.
* '''Disneyland Paris''' (formerly known as Euro Disney Resort and later Disneyland Resort Paris): Opened in 1992, and going for an even more elaborate look (as well as DarkerAndEdgier for some attractions). Includes two theme parks, the original one is now known as Disneyland Park and a second opened in 2002, known as Walt Disney Studios Park. It bombed spectacularly at first, though it eventually gained some legs. As of late, though, Disneyland Park's ticket sales have been cannibalized by Walt Disney Studios Park. After opening, the park was [[AmericansHateTingle hated by the French people]], who opposed the poor (by French standards, anyway) working conditions there and viewed it as an example of [[EaglelandOsmosis American cultural imperialism]]. Despite the initial hostility, today the resort has some of the largest attendance numbers of any European tourist destination (but still loses money by the boatload due to shady financial montages that plague it since its debuts).
* '''Hong Kong Disneyland Resort''': Opened in 2005, its park is very close in design to the original Disneyland, though it's much smaller and only has a few of the iconic Disney attractions. Nonetheless, it's gained notoriety for, in essence, having the exact ''opposite'' problems that Euro-Disney did. However, Disney embarked on a large expansion project that brought unique attractions to the park, some being new twists on old favorites. The expansion includes Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Carts, which is a twist on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The story goes that miners discovered gold in the mountain on 1888, complete with friendly bears. Now it's your turn to take a ride through the mine.... The expansion also includes a WesternAnimation/ToyStory themed land, which is themed to look like Andy's toys in the grass of his backyard, and a LighterAndSofter twist on Ride/TheHauntedMansion, set inside a Victorian-era mansion in the jungle belonging to AdventurerArchaeologist Lord Henry Mystic and his pet monkey, Albert. Lord Mystic's just gotten back from another archaeological expedition and brought back an [[ArtifactOfDoom enchanted music box]]. Then one day, Albert opens the music box and the artifacts in the mansion come to life...

** Snow globes were HUGE sellers for Disney World in the late 1990s/early 2000s. So much so that the Magic Kingdom's centerpiece for the 100 Years of Magic celebration (honoring Walt Disney's 100th birthday) in 2001 was the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Share_A_Dream_Come_True_Parade "Share a Dream Come True" parade]], whose floats were nothing but giant snow globe set-pieces with popular Disney characters inside. This ended up happening at the worst possible time: the September 11th attacks took place a month before the parade debuted, which not only slowed tourism but also led airlines to make restrictions on what items flyers could take on planes, with snow globes being one of the first banned souvenirs. This effectively killed off the booming Disney World snow globe business, and the parade limped on for five years before it was reconfigured into the "Disney Dreams Come True" parade, which was the same parade as before but minus the snow globe tops on the floats.
