Oh... such a difficult one. I have been to WDW plenty of times, yet only once to DL. But, I voted for DL. There is something very original about it. And, it seems to be the place where the best attractions and parades originate, ie Soarin. And, come on, no Stitch in Tomorrowland!!! And, POTC will always be better at DL. And HM is cool. And, well, Indy is an attraction, not a show!!! And the Aladdin performance is AMAZING. Yes, I agree, it has WAY less to offer than WDW, but there is so much history that, as a Disney fan, I appreciate it. Of course, being without WS is an issue....

I don't know. Its just so different. So original.

I have to say DL because it's the only Disney park I've been to. But living that close to a park would be great. whenever you're down or sad, just stop by the park and all you're worries are gone! :wink:

I wouldn't like any disney park to be anywhere close to me, the fact that the parks are so far away (massachusetts) we get to visit once every year or two, this keeps it fresh and exciting and gives us something to look forward to, not to mention if they were too convienient to get to it could do some serious damage to your wallet.

I had to go with WDW. I would want to be west or south of it. I'd be close to some of the best fishing in the world and Busch Gardens.

Why it's a great park. We love coasters.

WDW...for all the reasons listed. It's my second home. And I LOVE Florida.

The further away the better. thus i'm not tempted to go as often and it doesn't become average to me.

WDW for me. 4 parks and so much to do. :mickey: :mickey:
1980, 2000, 2005 and 2008 all had plenty of magic. Hoping for a bit more in 2010.

I voted WDW for size and more to do and of course climate, I live 1 hour and 15 minutes away from DLRP and would rather take a 10 hour flight to FL anyday :lol: I'd love to live less than 20 miles away :wink: I'm working on other half :D

WDW!!! There is always so much to see and do there that we pack it all in when we go (which is only once in a blue moon). However, there are always so many things we skip over "for next time", because we just simply can't do it all. If we lived close by, we could go whenever we want!! That would simply be awesome. But, living in Michigan, I'd have to say, I would not want to endure an entire summer of southern heat and humidity.

I said WDW just because I live about 45 minutes from DLR / Knott's Berry Farm, an hour away from Six Flags Magic Mountain and a half hour from Universal Studios Hollywood. I want to try something new for a change!

I did grow up about 45 miles from WDW, it was great. We had first FL resident passes and then annual passes and would go almost every week. It rocked!!
