Top 5 Disney Theme Parks
Whatever nationality you are, or the culture that you grew up in, it’s probably safe to assume that you had your fair share of Disney movies growing up. We all are aware of these classic tales of young girls like Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty who find their Prince Charmings eventually. Aside from Disney romance, we have iconic Disney characters that have played important parts in our childhood. These are Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and The Incredibles.
With the popularity of Disney and their impact on our young lives, Disney theme parks have become iconic landmarks for tourists, especially if they are traveling with their families.
The popularity of Disney theme parks have also exploded throughout the years, giving way to trends and phenomena such as Disney-bounding, which is the practice of dressing up as your favorite Disney characters in casual clothes.
This list compiles the 5 best Disney theme parks all around the world.
It seems that the consensus for the best Disney theme park all around the world is Tokyo DisneySea.
Located in Japan’s bustling city of Tokyo, Tokyo DisneySea is superior to all other Disney theme parks for many reasons. One of them is the nostalgia factor that is present in the park. It successfully manages to bring the more “classic” Disney attractions to a more modern and balanced execution. The quality of the rides, attractions, and overall layout is enjoyable for every Disney fan at heart.
Tokyo DisneySea boasts attractions like Mysterious Island, Hotel Miracosta which features Mediterranean designs, and top-notch versions of classic Disney theme park attractions like Indiana Jones Adventure and Radiator Spring Racers. This is what Tokyo DisneySea does best: it provides the best executions of standard Disney attractions.
Moreover, transportation is viewed not as a commodity but as an experience. With Venetian Gondolas roaring on sunset waters, boats, cars, and trains that give an enjoyable but utilitarian experience.
For people who have not been to Tokyo DisneySea, the best Disney theme park for them is probably Disneyland Resort in California. And that’s actually for good reason as Disneyland is iconic and popular because of the nostalgia factor it brings. It is successful in bringing to reality the beauty of our favorite Disney movies, so that we can experience the premise in real life.
Disneyland Resort is home to attractions like Magic Happens Parade, Fantasmic, World of Colors, Mickey’s Mix Magic Fireworks, Disney mascots everywhere, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and so much more. This is the theme park for everyone in the family. It caters to all demographics that are within the Disney fan group.
Additionally, there is the famed Disneyland Resort Hotel that can accommodate you during your multiple day-trip, Disney style.
Tokyo Disneyland is a good balance between Magic Kingdom and the original Disneyland, with a few surprises like Pooh’s Hunny Hunt. Tokyo Disneyland makes it at the top of this list not because of original, one-of-a-kind attractions but because it is great at executing the best qualities that a Disneyland theme park has.
Think of it this way: Tokyo Disneyland takes the best qualities and standards of every Disneyland theme park in the world, and it does those qualities and standards beautifully, without fail.
While the attractions are classic and considered to be the “best” hits, Tokyo Disneyland remains superior because of its wonderful casting, stage design, attention to detail, dining and entertainment.
Magic Kingdom Park is a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando, Florida. The recent renovations of Magic Kingdom has catapulted itself on the top of this list. The refurbishments started in December of 2018, with the Tron construction and closing of Walt Disney World Railroad. The Cinderella Castle was also recently refurbished.
Additional attractions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Festival of Fantasy parade have also recently opened, adding to the overall quality and enjoyment factor of the whole theme park.
Magic Kingdom may pale in comparison to Disneyland. But certainly has its own alluring charm and it makes up for the grand layout of the park.
The City of Love in France boasts its own Disneyland, too. And this one is worth mentioning as one of the best Disney theme parks around the world.
In size, it is rather small as compared to the original Disneyland. But it is still grand enough to house seven Disney-themed hotels, the Disney Village entertainment, and shopping district. The two parks in Disneyland Paris are Parc Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Park.
The beauty of Disneyland Paris lies in the seasonal attractions and entertainments, as well as the fantasy-like execution of rides and activities.
Those were the 5 best Disney theme parks all around the world, ranked according to its attractions, execution, nostalgic factor, and pioneer status. Have you been to one of these Disney theme parks before? Share your Disney experiences with us!
