Hey everyone its been a while since I posted but I just went to WDW and went to the big 4 parks over there (MK, AK, Epcot, MGM) and what can I say....
We'll first off I live in CA about an 1 and a half from Disneyland so yes I've been there ALLOT but I love ever visit. Not this time after flying to Florida I got a day of rest then went to Epcot.
Epcot was the lest crowded of the 4 parks besides Test Track and Mission Space I really didn't see that many lines for rides. So the first ride I went on was Test Track and it was fun but hell its no real roller coaster. Then I got a fast pass for mission space and then went on Nemo. Nemo was ok...to say the most. Then on to Mission Space which felt real but there was really no trill level so it was ok too. Then I went on all these other rides Soring (which line is just as big as the line at DCA) and some other rides, besides Soring there were no REAL stand out rides. On to the countries where I say all the movies and went on the rides and say the America show (my favorite show of the Park) But for the money it cost to get my 5 day pass the park was really not worth the money Hell DCA is more fun than that park.
Next I went to MGM and IT WAS CROWDED so I got to go on Rock it Roller Coaster which was fun to say the lest but I was not going to wait another 30-40 mins (thats using fastpass) to go on it again. I wanted to go on TOT since I knew it was better than the one at DCA BUT the fast pass was broken so guess what I never got to go on it (hell if Im waiting an hour for a ride I can go on in DCA) I saw the Indy show which was Very good, I also enjoyed the Beauty and the Beast and little Mermaid shows. Star Tours was just like the one in DL (not saying thats a bad thing) The Tour was a waste of time nothing compared to a Universal Tour. The Car Stunt show WAS GREAT. But once again for the price no the park is no worth it and not even as good as DCA (I'll tell you why I keep saying this at the End, there is a reason for this)
Next I Went to MK (I went to MGM until 4 PM then moved to MK) I got to ride like 4 things. I went on Splash Mountain which is just as fun as the one at DL. Next Big Thunder which was fun but the line is always too big the one at DL lets you get on with a Fast pass in less than 20 mins, while twice while I was on my trip I had to wait over 30 mins (with fast pass) on Big Thunder. Space Mountain has it right it took me like 10 mins to get on the ride and it was fun and VERY different from the one at DL but I liked that. The Jungle Cruise was fun and I liked the temple I wish they add that to the one at DL. Mickey's Philharmagic was GREAT and had no wait (I did that show 4 times on my trip) The Hall of Presidents was good too (I know people think its boring but I went on it twice, guess I just like History)
So then on Wednesday I went back to MK and did almost everything and it was fun but I was pissed off when I had a fast pass for Splash Mountain and the line was ALL the way back to the Splash mountain store (yes it was the fast pass lane) So I had to skip that (even through I already went on it)
Next to AK which was the HOTTEST of the parks and very crowded, over all I was disappointed. Dinosaurs the ride was fun and with no line it made it even better. The Safari ride sucked, I'm sorry but it did for one its WAY too short and 2 you don't even see that many animals. In San Diego there a Wild Animal Park NOW thats a real ride that lets you see the animals. The shows at AK were good but nothing that great. The water ride's fast pass ran out and the line was too long to go on it. Lastly the Everest was fun but I just wanted more thrill I guess but I went on it twice (since I had nothing else to do) But DCA is a better park than this one once again.
On Friday I went to MK again and went on the rest of the rides I couldn't go on before.
So let me firstly say if you leave close to Disneyland GO TO IT, don't go to MK. Why??? MK is nothing to DL, Disneyland has MORE rides (Indy, Subs, Matterhorn, Roger Rabbit, Star Tours, Alice in Wonderland and Pinocchio) Which makes a big difference. Plus Disneyland lines and Fastpass lines are shorter, Not to mention the fact that Pirates is much better at DL than MK, plus DL now has a the new Pirates Lair so yeah everything MK has so does DL but DL has MORE!
Lastly back to the whole DCA is better than the 3 other parks why is this such a big deal??? I have since the parks opening said DCA was a horrible park and nothing to DL but guess what AK, MGM and Epcot are in the same boat but even lower. All 3 parks have less rides than DCA and just as many shows (except DCA has no night time show <yet>) So overall I would never redo that trip and I'll just go to DL and DCA if I want to go on some rides and not wait in "that" many lines. Now I don't get how people can say WDW is better than the Disney Resort just because its smaller, its not the size its how you use it.
