There's been a lot of talk about what parks have recently opened, what they plan to open, and other big announcements over the last few years. But, for a moment, if we put all that aside and consider the parks as they exist in this moment today, I am curious to know what you consider to be your most "complete" park experience.
For this discussion, I am talking about a single park on a single day. Which park (it could be theme park or amusement park) currently provides the most well-balanced experience for you or your family?
This answer may be different for you depending on your need for thrills, family-friendly attractions, great food, etc., but any answer is valid as long as you make your case.
For me, my current all-around park experience is at Islands of Adventure. Whenever I visit this park, I always feel that I have a full day of rides and attractions to check out. There's a great balance of thrills and chills, some good shows (though I actually miss the extra-cheesy Sinbad show), and lots of different IPs to enjoy. The park is great on hot summer days (with great water attractions), and in colder seasons (Harry potter always feels especially genuine in the winter). And, I have to admit that there is quite a bit of nostalgia every time I head back there, as my first visit was in 2000 as a kid.
The main reason that this park beats out Magic Kingdom, my second-favorite overall park, is that the crowds always feel more manageable, though MK has the benefit of a great end-of-night fireworks show.
So that's my choice, what's yours? There is no wrong answer.
