Vista-United Telecommunications was the telecommunications company created to service all Disney resorts in Florida and Disney-planned communities such as Celebration, Florida and the Disney Vacation Clubs in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and Vero Beach, Florida.

Disney created Vista-United as an Limited Liability Company. The company was created to manage the new telephone and data communications for Walt Disney World. Vista-United was the first company to use underground cabling, the first to use fiber optic cable to provide service to customers, and the first company in Florida to activate 9-1-1 emergency dialing. [1]

Vista-United was, in fact, an independent telephone company for Walt Disney World, however the company was created through a partnership between Vista Communications, Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company and United Telephone Company of Florida, which later became a part of Sprint. [2]

In 2001 telephone company Smart City Telecom purchased Vista-United and created an agreement with Disney to ensure telecommunications service for the resort over a long period of time.[3] [4]
