Acron was a town in eastern Lake County, Florida, established during the late 19th century, near Paisley. It is best known as the town where Flora Call and Elias Disney, the parents of Walt Disney, and Roy O. Disney lived for a short time after they were married in nearby Kismet on New Year's Day, 1888.[1] The location, probably at or near 29°0.1'N 81°31.2'W which is just northeast of Lake Akron, is about forty miles (65 km) due north of what is now the Walt Disney World Resort. Acron is now a ghost town.
