When Walt Disney World first opened in 1971, there were only three resorts on the property. Do you know which are the three original resorts?
When I found out there were only three resorts open in 1971, I naturally assumed it was the three monorail resorts near the Magic Kingdom. However, those are not the three original resorts. The original WDW resorts are The Polynesian Village Resort, The Contemporary Resort, and Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
As you may have heard, The Polynesian which has since has a name change, will be getting some renovations, as well as, reverting to its opening day name of The Polynesian Village Resort. The Contemporary Resort features a modern A-frame design with a monorail going through the center and is still, over 30 years later, a very contemporary resort. Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground provides a more rustic experience. Guests can stay in cabins or go camping.
