    Exclamation Ranking of Disney American Theme Parks

    My Ranking Of Disney American Theme Parks

    1. Disneyland Park (Do you even have to ask?)
    2. Magic Kingdom
    2. Epcot
    3. Animal Kingdom
    4. Disney’s California Adventure
    4. Disney-MGM Studios

    Disneyland Park will always be my favorite. No park could ever beat it. Well, I take that back – Tokyo Disney Sea might!!!

    The Magic Kingdom and Epcot are tied for second place. Epcot has so much cool stuff, but beating a Magic Kingdom-styled park is tough.

    Animal Kingdom is safely is third place. Not as good as Disneyland Park, the Magic Kingdom, and Epcot, but better than the Studios and DCA.

    DCA and the Studios are tied for last place. I could count on my fingers the attractions from both parks combined that I really like. However, the Studios has better theming than DCA (Paradise Pier, empty San Franciso, etc.)

    Let’s make a comparison chart to determine which Disney American theme park really is the worst. Most would jump to say DCA, but I’ve never been a Studios fan.


    Attractions In Both Parks and Where It's Better

    Muppet Vision 3D - Same
    Disney Animation - DCA
    Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - Same (I think)

    My Favorite Attractions/Restaurants and Where They're Located

    Muppet Vision 3D - Both
    The Great Movie Ride - Studios
    Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! - Studios
    Disney-MGM Studios Backlot Tour - Studios (obviously)
    Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream - Studios
    Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage - Studios
    Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular - DCA
    Golden Dreams - DCA
    It’s Tough to be a Bug! - DCA
    Soarin’ Over Calfornia - DCA
    Monsters Inc.: Mike and Sulley to the Rescue - DCA
    Taste Pilot’s Grill - DCA


    *I apologize in advance to any enthusiasts for not including Rock n' Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror on my "favorites" list. They're just too scary for me!

    Ok, do you agree with my list??? Am I crazy for not automatically putting DCA at the bottom of my list? Is Epcot better than the Magic Kingdom?

    PLEASE TELL ME THAT EVERYONE AGREES THAT DISNEYLAND PARK IS THE BEST PARK?!!!!!

    Re: Ranking of Disney American Theme Parks

    1- Disneyland
    2- Magic Kingdom
    3- Epcot
    4- Animal Kingdom
    5- DCA
    7- Disney/MGM Studios

    I really wasn't impressed with the Studio park and we probably spent only a few hours there before leaving and going to another park. People always complain about DCA but I still think it is better then the Studio park by a bit.

    Re: Ranking of Disney American Theme Parks

    TDLFAN - the official name is now Epcot, not EPCOT Center.
    And how can you say that Animal Kingdom is better than Epcot?
    Tokyo Disneyland is better than Tokyo Disney Sea...I'm surprised to hear someone say that but I'll trust your opinion.

    Glad to see that everyone agrees that Disneyland is the best Disney American theme park!

    1)Disneyland
    2)Magic Kingdom
    3)Epcot
    4)Animal Kingdom*
    5)DCA
    6)Disney-MGM Studios **


    * = AK is great and once they add a couple more rides it might give EP a run for the money on my list.

    ** = If it wasn't for GMR, Rockin', and TOT I would rarely visit it. All the shows you can see one and be done with them. DS just needs a "little" help.

    After considering some of my theme park "ties," I reorganized my list and I agree with you completely!!!

    Re: Ranking of Disney American Theme Parks

    1. Epcot
    2. Animal Kingdom
    3. Disneyland
    4. MGM Studios
    5. Magic Kingdom

    The above is purely subjective and are my personal faves based on how each park fits my interests. Objective things like number of attractions, cleanliness etc. had little or no influence on this list.

    Haven't been to DCA yet, so can't rate it.
