Numbers 1-3 are very close to me. I like Disneyland and Magic Kingdom for mostly similar reasons but then each has certain things I like better than the other. Hollywood Studios has the highest concentration of my favorite attractions, coupled with a nice and walkable size, great shows, and my favorite nighttime spectacular (Fantasmic). Hollywood Studios is actually probably my personal favorite park but I acknowledge it is weaker when judged by "objective" (lol) criteria.

Likely, the Tokyo, Shanghai, and Paris Disney parks would rank on this list but I have never been to them. It has also been so long I can't remember Universal Hollywood, Knots, or any of the Six Flags I have been to. It also pains me to place EPCOT so low because I love it, but again, I acknowledge its faults. I've also said my piece on IOA on another thread haha.

1.) Disneyland
2.) Epcot
3.) Disney’s California Adventure
4.) Islands of Adventure
5.) Magic Kingdom
6.) Animal Kingdom
7.) Disneyland Paris
8.) Disney’s Hollywood Studios
9.) Universal Studios Hollywood
10.) Universal Studios Orlando
11.) Dollywood
12.) Busch Gardens Williamsburg
13.) SeaWorld San Diego
14.) SeaWorld Orlando
