    Hello Disney experts !

    I've been to Disney World quite a few times now (5 times in 7 years of living in this country) but only now my curiosity was awakened for some of the general facts (and fun facts).
    I've done some Internet research but I get conflicting messages for some questions and no answers at all for others.

    Hopefully some die hard fans & experts here can give me some answers.

    1) How many people work inside Disney World (not counting people/companies which supply to Disney but are located off site) ?
    (-I've seen numbers between 44000 and 70somethingthousand)

    2) How big is Disney World (acres, sq miles or else) ?
    (-I've seen numbers between 20000 and 33000)

    3) It seems like Disney has over 3000 employee functions/jobs. Can you name me some of them with the amount of people who have this job ? Like I have heard that they have 3000 painters on staff which sounds quite extreme. If you could name me some "fun facts" like this would be great (I don't really care how many people work eg. at the front desks of the resorts ).


    I am working on a little video of my last Disney trip right now and it would be great if I could incorporate some of those facts before sending it to my family.

    Thanks in advance !!!

    The total amount of land purchased for WDW was 27,400 acres.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    The work force, last I heard, was about 55K.

    And the size of the entire property is approximately 47 sq. miles.
