Favorite Park?

Probably been asked many many times before, but let's see what sorta responses we get.

What's your favorite WDW park, and why?

PS: Yes, we'll throw in Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon as "parks", and no..DTD isn't one lol.

Oh...and no ties. "I like X and Y so much...I can't decide!"... yuck

Epcot - because I can visit other countries without taking out my passport.

Going to say Epcot. The history behind the park is fascinating, since it was originally meant to be a Utopian experiment of sorts. And I love how the World's Fair atmosphere is felt all over the park, with the merging cultures and technologies.

Magic Kingdom. It brings back such wonderful memories of my childhood. I feel like the little kid in me gets to break free when we are there. It brings us closer as a family, so much love and laughter.

Wow...I guess I'm different because I didn't grow up with Disney...I was there at 8, 18, and 26. I love MK the most because of the heavy Disney'ness there lol. But very close 2nd has to be DHS. The rides and movie ambiance is hard to beat and my fiancee totally agrees.

It has been a number of years but I am most excited for Epcot because I like the idea of traveling the world and drinking delicious drinks.

Also I love figment. I need to replace my stuffed figment that I got a child.

Oh man this is tough! Magic Kingdom has the most classic Disney, Epcot has all the good food, Hollywood Studios has the best rides, and Animal Kingdom is just so different then the other three! If I HAD to pick, though, I'd go with MK because it just feels the most Disney to me...plus it has some great rides on top of it. Epcot would be in a very close second, with HS in 3rd, AK in 4th. I've never been to the water parks, so can't speak on that.

For me it's a tie between Magic Kingdom and Epcot. MK is best when I want to be 10 years old again. Epcot is best when I've had enough of being 10 years old again.

Right now, our Disney destination wedding is going to be summer 2014. Something tells me if I plan a value/moderate WDW trip NEXT summer (2013), she won't be happy lol.

(As much as I'd absolutely LOVE another Disney vacation..a la Pop, CSR, or Orleans)...

MK is pure Disney fun for me, but latly HS has been giving it a run for it's money. Though Epcot has the world, this park makes me feel like I've truly transported else where, to another time or place. Super fun rides and themes. It is just totally unique to me.

As much as I love MK and people watching. I will have to go with Epcot, love a nice cold beer, sit on the benches around the lake and talk to people. When that beer is empty I move to the next "country", grab another and hit another bench. Once I run out of countries. I start all over. Beer Beer Beer lol Seems like the crowds are older since there arent as many rides and less little ones underfoot.

Tough choice between EPCOT (World Showcase side) and AK.

How about I go with EPCOT (WS), while staying at AKV with a Savannah view? muchlove

Food/drink options aside, HS all the way!! When we have park hoppers this is the park we end up at most often every vacation. Although we have gone to MK just purely for dole whip floats on occasion too!

I totally get that awesome

I'd say my favorite is the MK, with Epcot a close second. I love the tingly feeling I get when I see the tip of the castle while riding the buses into MK. I love and believe in the magic and enjoy that most of the people around me when I'm watching Wishes are having the best time of their lives. As evident by the tears I see on adult faces. I grew up with Disneyland and having been there over 100 times it never gets old. That first walk down main street. The balloon vendors, the smell of food and the background music just make my whole being as happy as I can be...it's my happy place. I enjoy being there, planning trips and especially talking about it with others.
I've been told that my enthusiasm for Disney has made others want to go to WDW. Several of my co-workers, those hardened, street smart, sometimes angry guys and girls have told me. What do you see in a place for kids? When they are reluctantly staking their families and I give them adult tips on how to enjoy the parks, they come back with "it was the best time ever, I had more fun than my kids. I want to go on an adults only trip with you."
I'm sure all you fellow Disney addicts can relate when I say...it's just the best place to be...it's a world made for those of us who love the feeling we get when we're there. It's truly magical and not something we can recreate at home. It's fantasy and fun and cupcakes wink
As Crazycatperson said "it's the place I want to be to feel like a 10 year old again" at 10 I believed in pirates, princesses and the good moral story of love and friendship being the most important thing in my whole world. My imagination was challenged and rewarded. No matter how many times I go back it's not the same every time which makes me want to visit often. It's my birthday, Christmas, fourth of July and my wedding day all rolled into one.

Yes, I do agree! My spouse's reason for wanting to go (in addition to knowing how much I love it and therefore it must be great) is just that he's never been there and wants to "feel what it's like." There's many places people want to go or see, but Disney has an actual feeling attached to it.

Pssssst! That's the "Magic". Shhhhhh!
