What is your favorite Disney Park?

Which park is your favorite? Florida? California? Hong Kong? Tokyo? Disney Sea? Paris? If Florida, which park/land is your favorite?

Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea were gorgeous, but I spent a lot of my time confused, lol. I don't speak enough Japanese to fully understand everything there. I'd have to say Florida is my favorite so far and probably Magic Kingdom. I love the fairytale aspect and as a foodie, lol, I loved BoG. To be able to eat, "the grey stuff" was just mindblowing for me.

Not been to the West Coast park - missed out by a day last year. Tokyo is on the horizon since my cousin is now Japan-side, but of the 3 I have visited - Florida, Paris, HK...I haven't been to DLHK since they opened! Need to go back to see what has changed (although I know the queue jumpers, noisy mainlanders and queue spotters won't have changed!)

I know what you mean about WDW though, I think it's extra special when you're adults too. I went when I was a teenager and didn't appreciate it as much as I should have. Lol, you know....I was "too cool" to hang out with my parents then.

I'm a little intimidated by Hong Kong, I don't know the culture or language at all. I'm at least familiar with Japanese and the culture there. You'll have a great time there at Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea! Have you been to Japan before?

I've only been to Orlando, so I would have to say that one! LOL. With my fear of flying, the only hope for me are to drive cross country or take a train to DL. Favorite park in WDW Epcot, followed very close by MK!

I've only been to Florida and DL in California (though I was too young to remember), so I'll put them in the order I would like to visit them!

Tokyo/Disney Sea, Hong Kong, California, Paris

I left Florida out since that's one I go to often. Favorite park there is MK!

Not been to Japan before...it is on my bucket list. HK's Disneyland is an odd place - it's so familiar yet alien! I wonder how the Disneyland Shanghai is going to look....

A lot of you seem to favor MK too! yay I was wondering, what are your thoughts on the Minecart ride? It was still under construction when we visited, but I'm so excited to ride it later this year!! yeah So excited, that I refuse to look at photos/videos of the ride so everything will be a surprise for me, lol.

Tokyo Disneyland will probably give you that same feeling laugh ex: Buzz lightyear speaks to you in Japanese on the Astro Blasters, it looks the same though. Also, they have amazing popcorn! My favorite is the curry one....didn't care for the milk tea flavor Stare

It's always fun to try a familiar thing with an alien twist...!

The mine cart ride is the smoothest coaster I've been on...It was good to be able to finally ride it as I saw the construction the year before and had to wait a whole year before I could get on.

I have been to Florida. As far as parks go, I would have to definitely put MK first followed by AK.

As far as the 7DMT, I think I am in the minority, and did not really love it. It was smooth and the theme and attention to detail was great as Disney always does. I just wanted....more. Maybe it was watching it get built and then all the hype over it, but I got off slightly disappointed. Please don't kill me, everyone!

Only done WDW and Paris. While I loved Florida based on the size and variety (loved F&W festival with the music) Paris is local (overnight night drive) to me and I know my way around better.

I would love to say DHS is my favourite but there is a lot of empty space there, if they fill up what they have shut it would be amazing.

Also I prefer the castle in Paris mickey

I've only been to FL, and Epcot has been my favorite park since I was 4 (yes, I was a strange child laugh )

I may be over-hyping the minecart ride in my mind and may end up leaving the coaster like this whoopdedoo Lol, but I'm hoping I'll just love the atmosphere and fun aspect of it. I've always wanted to go to Paris and of course, if since Disney is there, it's on my wish list. One of these days we'll make it to that side of the world! awesome Also, lol, don't worry, I've liked Epcot from a younger age. I think it's the whole idea of eating around the world in one day. I've yet to do it....but one of these days!!! mickey

I've only been to FL and CA and I preferred Disneyland to WDW, but I'm not sure how much of that was because DL was "new" to us. I loved the park-like feel and the ability to be a pedestrian everywhere on property. Also, the climate for our trip seemed a bit more appealing at DL than at WDW. There are several rides that I love at DL that either don't exist or just aren't the same at WDW--I think I would fly to California just for Alice in Wonderland.

I've only been to the US parks. Disneyland as a very small baby according to my parents but I don't remember a thing! And Disney World, well, five times if I recall.

I'm not really interested in the international parks. I've already visited Hong Kong and Shanghai before they built their Disney parks so there's not really an incentive to go back there. I have to really love a place in order to go back. Never been to Tokyo but I'm not really crazy about Japan. Love Japanese food but I can't see myself going to Japan. The distance and the language barrier worries me and being that I'm Asian-American, I feel there are higher expectations from me to speak Asian languages fluently! As for Paris, well, Disneyland Paris isn't really an interest of mine. The rudeness of the park guests, CMs and the whole in-park environment worries me and I've heard how appalling some parts of the park look, at least, from an aesthetic point of view.

Really want to visit Disneyland out in California. I've never been to California Adventure and from what I've heard, it's not as touristy as Disney World.

As for my favorite park in WDW, it's the Magic Kingdom. The most rides, the most characters and it's the iconic Disney theme park.

Don't worry JW, it's the same with any Asian born overseas...we look the same but don't quite act the same but the same expectation is there for all of us!

BTW, Epcot is probably my fave park - if they can sort out the studio park, then that'll run things close.

I think my favorite would have to be Disneyland. But with the parks at WDW my favorite is AK or Epcot.

I am with you on this.The ride is great but soooooo short.And given as how we never saw a queue time of less than 50 mins the 2 weeks we were there it is FP only for us.

I'm also with both of you. I have expressed my displeasure before, mostly because I think the ride seats are WAAAY too small and WAAAY to uncomfortable. Granted, I'm not a size 2 (I prefer to say I'm all about that bass Wink ) But I'm also not huge and the seats physically hurt me. There is no way my DH and I would both fit in the seat side by side.

Disneyland in Anaheim is my favorite. I love the smaller and more intimate spaces, it makes me feel like I'm a part of the story, not just moving through it. Plus, it's the original so there's a nostalgic draw. I have wonderful memories of taking my oldest daughter when she was a newborn, and I can't even count the number of redesigns of the Disneyland Hotel I've stayed in. I love WDW, but Disneyland in Anaheim is where my heart truly lies.
