    Wow, this is a tough call, AJ. I love both parks so much, but for many different reasons. It’s like apples and oranges! I really can’t imagine picking a favorite. It’s choosing between air and water….you die without either one! lol

  2. Mark says

    Well, your question was if you just had one day to spend at Disney, which park would you choose? Easy, Animal Kingdom. Always our favorite and now even better. In 2019, I’m guessing the answer will be whatever they rename Hollywood Studio’s to. Love EPCOT, was there today, for the festivals and Soarin, there’s a big drop off after that. MK is such a hassle to get in and out of.

    I would have declared it another tie for Night-Time Entertainment – they both feel of similar quality to me. That wouldn’t change the result as presented in the video, but for my family the answer is always Epcot – we were there just yesterday for the end of Food and Wine. I also agree with Mark, the hassle of getting to MK does give it some negative points. It makes for a cool prelude for your first time there, but as an AP holder, I just wish I could walk in like I can at Epcot.

    EPCOT v MK? Hands down EPCOT. You can literally drink yourself around the world. MK, practically booze free.

  5. Rebecca B says

    For me, this would be all about who I’m with. Small Kids? MK or AK. Elementary aged kids, Epcot or HS (possibly MK, depending on how old/what they’re into. My nephew is all about star wars and all he wants is HS). A group of adults? Epcot all the way. Epcot is and always has been my favorite park, but deciding on a park for a one-day visit is really tricky. Right now, my family is super into Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom so, if we only had one day, it would be MK for us, but it changes over time.

    Magic Kingdom wins for me. The attractions are classics, the food at Jungle Skipper Canteen is fantastic, those fruit topped waffles at Sleepy Hollow are meant for sharing, dining in the main room with the snow gently falling at the Beast’s castle is an experience not to be missed. And then you have the Festival of Fantasy parade and the Happily Ever After fireworks and castle light show. Where else can you see the Main Street band, the Dapper Dans, or the piano players Jim or Mark outside of Casey’s Corner? And Dole Whips. You can’t forget the dole whips.

    Epcot is the superior park, despite it’s lack of attractions. If Epcot added a few more good attractions, it would wipe the floor with Magic Kingdom, especially since the food is vastly superior in Epcot compared to MK.

    Magic Kingdom is basically an inferior version of Disneyland. But at the same time, it is the face of Disney World, and it’s the best park for kids. But for me, Epcot is superior. I’d also take Hollywood Studios over MK as well. And with the addition of the new Toy Story land and Star Wars Land, it’s quite possible that Hollywood Studios could end up being the best park, at least when it comes to attractions. Animal Kingdom I haven’t been to in a while. Have to give it another chance.
