Disney's Buena Vista

Buena Vista means "pleasant view" in Spanish. It has been frequently used as a name for divisions of The Walt Disney Company.

Lake Buena Vista is a city in Orange County, Florida, United States. It is mostly known for being home to the Walt Disney World Resort. It is one of two Florida municipalities controlled by The Walt Disney Company.

Lake Buena Vista is part of the Orlando–Kissimmee Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Buena Vista is also a brand name frequently used for divisions of The Walt Disney Company, whose primary studios and offices are located on Buena Vista Street in Burbank, California.

It was originally created by Walt Disney in 1953 after the release of Peter Pan to distribute his film and television productions, thus ending a 20-year affiliation with RKO Pictures. Disney semi-retired the name in May 2007, although this name is, to the present day, used for most home video and DVD distribution.
