Disney Park and Resort Sizes

When Walt first had his idea for a Disney park, it was going to have been an 8 acre venture across the street from the Disney Studios called Mickey Mouse Park. Little did he know what that gem of an idea would turn into. Here, I have listed the sizes of all the current Disney parks and resorts worldwide. It's fascinating to compare them.

DISNEYLAND RESORT - 510 acres (Walt originally bought 160 acres)
Disneyland - 85 acres
Disney's California Adventure - 55 acres (will expand to 67 acres with Carsland)
Downtown Disney - 20 acres

WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT - 25,000 acres (Walt originally bought 27,400 acres, but pieces have been sold off)
Magic Kingdom - 107 acres
Epcot - 305 acres
