Vote of the week: Which is your favorite Disney land?
Here's the scene: Through the magic of the Internet and holiday wishes, you've just been whisked from your computer and dropped on to the hub in front of the castle at your favorite Disney Magic Kingdom theme park. (Disneyland
, Walt Disney World
, Tokyo Disneyland
, Disneyland Paris
, Hong Kong Disneyland
- take your pick.)
The most popular Disney park, Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, decked out for the Christmas holiday
Where do you go first?
That's the essence of this week's Theme Park Insider vote: What's your favorite of the original Disney "lands"? Now, I'm talking about these lands generically here, I understand that the specific attraction line-up - and the appeal - varies from park to park. Heck, even the names of these lands vary around the world, too. (I'm looking at you, Disneyland Paris.)
But which is the theme that captures your heart and imagination? Which is the land to which you'd want to run first?
Tell us why that land is your favorite, in the comments, please.
Disneyland Paris isn't the only Disneyland to change the names of the lands. Tokyo Disneyland's Frontierland is known as Westernland and Main Street USA is known as World Bazaar.
Tomorrowland! It has three of my favorite attractions -- Space Mountain, Tomorrowland Transit Authority (unless they've changed the name *again*), and of course, the Carousel of Progress.
Robert, you're asking us to chose out favorite child. My favorite Land is the one I'm in at that time.
Tomorrowland because each MK style park has their own interpretation of it!
My favorite is New Orleans Square, which is only at Disneyland and therefore not an option. It has the two best dark rides ever, The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean, both in their original locations. Often duplicated, seldom matched.
Orleans Square/Liberty Square
My favorite land is actually Liberty Square. I just love the feeling that I'm walking through the town square of 1700's America, watching the riverboat go by, etc... Since that wasn't an option, I voted for my second favorite, Frontierland.
Though not in Orlando, New Orleans Square will always take the cake as far as I'm concerned. Liberty Square has never quite made sense as a replacement to me. And sticking Pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland has always rubbed me wrong.
Poll vote as of Friday morning seems to confirm that Disney is correct to be pouring money into a rebuild of Fantasyland at WDW. (At this point, Fantasyland is DL - and that's not 'Disneyland.' It's dead last.)
But "Fantasyland" at Magic Kingdom wasn't one of the original "Disney lands" was it? No, so the fact that Disney is spending money on the revamp of that land in Florida is kind of irrelevant for this poll.
The best themed land at any of the Disney parks? You are asking which is the best themed land in the Disney parks?

Mr. Gallagher your mother is perhaps one of the most remarkable women ever to garce this planet. Young girls should aspire to meet the standard she has set.
Liberty Square is my favorite place on earth, and the Haunted Mansion is my favorite attraction there. Pirates of the Caribbean isn't far away either. Fantasy Land is for babies and mamby pambies!
I voted for Tomorrowland. Of course, I intended that vote for the 1967 verson of Disneyland's Tomorrowland (or perhaps what tomorrow's Tomorrowland could be), NOT the current incarnation.
Discoveryland (Tomorrowland) at Disneyland Paris thank you very much. A strong attraction line-up - Space Mountain, Star Tours and Buzz - coupled with some marvellous architecture. Somewhat dated in parts, but that can add to the charm of it.
Difficult one this. I went for Frontier although only at DLRP... Big Thunder in the middle of the lake (sorry - Rivers of America) with the ride reaching it through an underwater tunnel is possibly one of the best ride experiences in the World! Incredible!
How does POTC in Adventureland not make any sense? Its an 'Adventure' with Pirates... Duh! I'll agree that New Orleans Sq is a fantastically themed part of DL, but the other Pirates - particularly the Parisian version is an excellent substitute, perhaps even improvement on the original. My two cents.
One must vote their biases.
Lol, TH you are hype. But I also voted for Adventureland.
Technically POTC is in Caribbean Plaza -- not actually Adventureland.
there should be an all of the above tab haha
Aw, no New Orleans Square... 'Nawlehns... so I went with Adventureland... I may be biased since I love tropical destinations!
Just love to meander around there!
I chose Frontierland because of Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain. I hope I chose the right area that contains those rides. They are the most elaborate and fun rides at the Magic Kingdom to me.
