Published: November 5, 2012 at 10:23 PMSingapore is a really cool place, not just for its theme park. It's got an incredible mix of cultures, incredible food readily available, and it's extremely clean. English is spoken by most, so it's a really good place for Americans who never learned another language to move to.

Published: November 6, 2012 at 8:02 AMDom speaks the truth. Tokyo Disney Sea is the place to be for all of us who may have to seek exile abroad after this election.
Mr Niles is correct, go out there and vote, it is your civic duty. However, don't just vote to vote...or because one person is "cool" or you like the other person's religion better. Be an informed voter. Do the research. Ask others what they think. Don't live in an isolation chamber, if you have a certain political point of view find out what the other side believes...and why.
Voting is not just a right...it is a RESPONSIBILITY.
Published: November 6, 2012 at 8:05 AMIn the absence of the parks I want to visit in Merry Olde, I voted for Europa.
And I voted in "real life" at 6am today.
Published: November 6, 2012 at 8:49 AMVote early and vote often, as they say in Chicago.
I'm actually moving to Abu Dhabi on Friday so I'm going to have to do a write in vote for Ferrari World. Having already been there I know it's not a great choice, but at least they have the fastest coaster in the world.
But from the list of choices I'd choose Tokyo Disney Sea as Robert has made it look so attractive.
Published: November 6, 2012 at 9:17 AMI voted for USS because I wouldn't have to kidnap a child to ride P-Fliers there! Oh and it has better overall theming to enjoy - any park that can make Shrek 4D look good gets my vote. ;)

FWIW, I have emerged from my isolation chamber and will cast my uninformed vote for Mickey Mouse shortly. Just gotta get done at Motor Vehicles first.... Ugh! Who would have thought it would be such a hassle to register a vehicle that uses a common trackless ride system??!!
PS Robert, I am rereading your book on my iPhone while I wait... The story about the Grandma leaping onto the Tom Sawyer raft is still my favorite!
Published: November 6, 2012 at 10:07 AMI'm disappointed that you catered to the moving out sentiment instead of reigning them in. If you don't like the election results, why not take a Disney cruise?
Published: November 6, 2012 at 10:58 AMEuropa Park, partly because it seems to have the best balance of theming vs thrill of those selections and partly because there are a number of other parks in the region I would like to visit (yes, I know this is bending the rules). Tokyo Disney would be great, but it just doesn't have enough thrill factor for my personal tastes, and Universal Studios Singapore seems to have a very limited number of attractions and would probably get boring after a while (especially since there are no other easily accessible parks nearby).
Of course, if I were to actually leave the continent I'd probably move to the United Kingdom and have Alton Towers and Thorpe Park nearby.
Published: November 6, 2012 at 7:52 PMWhere's Universal Studios Japan on the ballot?! In other words the only park in the world that still has Back to the Future the Ride. Osaka, Japan it is for me.
Published: November 8, 2012 at 1:26 AMDisneyland Paris! There really is lots of options for this.
Published: November 9, 2012 at 3:31 PMI'd put in a vote for USJ too. Although I loved Tokyo Disney Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth was too short when it got exciting. And it rained both times I went there. The last time it rained so hard that I was too cold and miserable to ride anything. Now that USJ will be getting Harry Potter attractions and butter beer, it is definitely a must stop for me next time. I only wish they got rid of the boring Music Coaster and put in a Hulk Coaster instead.
