Frommer's Walt Disney World & Orlando '98by Mary Meehan, Rena Bulkin
Walt Disney World drew record numbers of visitors for its heavily promoted 25th Anniversary celebrations in 1997, and that trend promises to carry over through next year. Disney is poised for two exciting openings: Wide World of Sports (complete with baseball fields, tennis facilities, beach volleyball courts, and more) and Animal Kingdom (a theme park that will feature rides, live animal habitats, and animatronic animals ). Increasingly popular is the Disney Institute, opened in 1996, which runs more than 80 hands-on programs from sports programs to culinary classes. And a recent $800-million expansion revamped the Orlando airport s runways, parking, and mass transit. Rewritten this year by a local journalist who covers Disney for the Orlando Sentinel, Frommer s offers expanded coverage of Universal Studios and all-new interior maps.
