Later on he bought over 160 acres of land near Santa Ana Freeway and Harbor Boulevard so he could build Magic Kingdom. While Magic Kingdom is over 160 acres Epcot is over 135 acres. Epcot was finished being built and opened in 1982, by May 1, 1989 Hollywood Studios was opened. Before Epcot and Hollywood Studios were opened Walt Disney Died in 1966. Walt Disney World opened in honor of him on October 1, 1971.
