Epcot, cos it's like two parks in one

Epcot would be my favorite park. It's a tough choice because they are all wonderful to be at. It would be a tough choice between the remaining continental US parks, but Disney studios would follow up last.

Like Mindflipper I have been to all of the FL parks, Disneyland California and Disneyland Paris. Growing up in Florida I would have to vote for the Magic Kingdom as I think it is the park we always HAVE to go to. If we spend one day it's at MK. If we buy any type of pass at least one day has to be devoted to the MK.

DL Paris was amazing. For any Space Mountain fan you have to get there one day just to try it. By far better than Cali's and FL's. I only had about 6 hours at the Paris park (as we were on a planned out trip) but I wished I had at least another day just to explore the differences. This comes in 2nd for me.

EPCOT is awesome and will always be a sentimental Top 3 for me even though they don't have a lot for kids and that's important to me now while my kids are young. This comes in 3rd for me.

DL California is really cool and has several things that MK doesn't but I felt it was overcrowded because of the space. Plus I was disappointed in the castle as opposed to FL's. It would come in 4th for me.

My favorite keeps changing. For example, when I worked at the MK my favorite park to hang out at was the Studios, but then they closed the Hunchback show and left the ABC theater empty and it lost its charm for me. After I returned to Ohio my favorite reverted to the MK, and even now it's usually the park we visit first every trip (check into room, head for MK). But now I think I'd give the edge to Epcot; there's just so much to do there that I like and not all that much I don't like.

I voted for DisneySea because it really is an awesome experience with incredible theming and music throughout the entire park.

I find myself thinking, while walking through Disneyland, that Walt himself actually walked through those very spots that we enjoy today. That is a really cool thing to me.

And EPCOT is a pretty amazing place as well. Such totally different experiences between Future World and World Showcase!

I really hope to get to Disneyland Hong Kong someday to see what that park is really like. :mickey:

My favorites, of the Parks I've been to, are Disneyland Paris, Epcot, then DHS. Being a SoCal resident my whole life, Disneyland will always be special, but I can really see Walt's vision when he was able to acquire more land in Florida. He may have not literally walked in the Parks there, but, the entire resort, I get a sense of him. And Paris, it's just flat out beautiful.

Epcot, hands down. I have not been to Disneyland or any of the overseas parks, so I can only chose from the parks at WDW, but there is no doubt in my mind, Epcot by far.

Epcot has always been my favorite and still is for the nighttime show, Illuminations RoE, and because the music is my favorite of all the parks.

However, on our last trip, my favorite park was DHS. I have always liked DHS because it is smaller than the other parks. But this time, I just fell in love with the atmosphere, music, lighting, etc. And, learning that I absolutely love ToT didn't hurt either! :lol:

Epcot since I like spending an entire day there, wandering all throughout World Showcase and seeing Illuminations.

EPCOT, simply for Mission: Space, and the fact that I could lose myself in World Showcase everyday of a trip and I would not be disappointed.

I still gotta say its EPCOT! Spend one whole day in Future World, and then the whole next day in the World Showcase!

EPCOT is definitely at least a two day park. Maybe even three if the lines are long!

Oh yeah definitely! It's a vacation all in it's own lol. It's even got those hidden secret places that amatures don't know about. One thing I like to do that I really don't see people do, is watch the jumping fountains near the Imagination pavilion! It's so cool to see. I like looking for the over looked things like that as well.

I haven't been to Dl yet but I can't imagine I'd like anything better than Cinderella's Castle!!!
