Today we wrap up the 2020 Theme Park Insider Awards with the announcement of our readers' collective choice for Best Theme Park last year. Our winner returns to the top spot after a bit of an absence and is followed on our top 10 parks list by four other former winners of our Best Theme Park honor.
Islands of Adventure had a big year with the debut of Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, our winner this year for Best New Roller Coaster. It also features our Best Table Service Restaurant winner, Mythos Restaurant, and three of our top 10 attractions overall.
Attendance might have been down at Walt Disney's original theme park in 2019, but the park looked better than ever thanks to its Project Stardust renovations, and the smaller crowds just made the park's classic attractions all the more enjoyable.
A two-time winner of our Best Park honor, Efteling remains our readers' pick as the best theme park in Europe, with additions to its Fairytale Forest and a new 4D film from Academy Award winners Aardman in 2019.
A six-time winner for Best Park, Tokyo DisneySea continues to wow visitors with its beauty, detail and line-up of amazing attractions, including a new, plussed version of Disney's Soarin' this year.
Last year's winner in this category returns to the top five after its first full year of operation in 2019. According to our readers, the world's largest indoor theme park is also its best.
Disney's newest theme park continues to impress our readers, with its new take on Pirates of the Caribbean dominating our attraction ratings until Rise of the Resistance opened.
The debut Jurassic World highlighted 2019 at Universal's Hollywood park, which continues to impress with its Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Waterworld stunt show, and the iconic Studio Tour.
This Walt Disney World park celebrated its 30th birthday this year by wrapping a years-long reconstruction. And, oh yeah, a little thing called "Rise of the Resistance" helped, too.
Disneyland's second gate holds its own with several top-rated attractions, including Radiator Springs Racers and Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, which will be part of the new Avengers Campus that opens this summer.
