Disneyland. To me, Magic Kingdom just gives out an 'unfinished' feeling. Not unfinished as what Walt deemed Disneyland, bu unfinished as in it's missing something. Disneyland just feels more full, and I'm not talking about it's small size that makes the park feel more crowded.
Please...don't call me simmer, call me Mike Folf.

Disneyland. I know that Walt wanted more space and all, but to me, the Magic Kingdom just seems too big. Disneyland is small and humble. I can't even begin to say what's wrong with MK's Fantasyland and Adventureland.
Again? Not you but this thread again? Um... Magic Kingdom. I know I'm in the miniority but I don't care. Love MK, was my first Disney park I ever visited and grew up loving it and still love it. Going to Disneyland after a few visits to MK didn't make me switch sides or teams, still forever and ever a MK boy at heart.
I've on;y been to MK twice and it felt incomplete like it was missing something no no t just Toon Town or Critter Country it just felt weird. Disneyland the original Magic Kingdom. So Dl has a smaller castle that is not enough reason to favor MK DL has higher detail nicer CMs and Walt actually walked in it. Magic kingdom still is a good park too but I still and always will prefer Disneyland more magic and intimacy, something that some of the other parks seem to have and missing in MK.
How about you give me an in depth month long fact finding tour for each park. All expenses paid of course and then maybe I will be sure which is better.
I actuallly love Disneyland as my first park. They are two different parks based on the same design but they are so different that I could not compare them. I could bt how does one really choose between steak and prime rib dinners. Similar but not the same.
Magic Kingdom is like a cornball 1970's prefab plastic park without enough rides and with a Brady Bunch Era design sense still baked in. It's plastic, fake, corporate, and bland. It was designed by committee years after Walt's death, and then the committee left it to get even more stale and faded for four decades in the Florida sun. And did I mention there's not enough RIDES in that park?!?
It's an amusement park for gosh sakes, you would think you could add in some more rides after nearly 40 years!
The one thing Magic Kingdom has going for it is the nifty ferry ride across the lagoon to get there. Other than that, it just gets more pathetic and embarassing with each passing year. And it needs to build a dozen good rides just to catch up to Disneyland.
