We love every single Disney World park — they’re all amazing!
Still, sometimes we like to think about which park is the very best, and it’s a tough decision! So, we pit Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios against one another in a variety of categories — and our readers picked a winner. This is the BATTLE OF THE PARKS!
We reached out to our followers on Instagram to see which Disney park would win in a variety of categories. Of course, we added up the results to figure out which is the ULTIMATE DISNEY PARK — but first, let’s see what YOU said!
In the Entertainment Category, it was a pretty close race between Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, ultimately Magic Kingdom pulled ahead with 13,264 votes compared to the 10,158 for Hollywood Studios. EPCOT and Animal Kingdom were left in the dust!
We had a runaway champ in the Food Category. EPCOT SWEPT with a whopping 25,543 votes! For reference, Magic Kingdom came in second with only 3,721 votes. If you’ve eaten literally anything at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie, you probs agree with this.
As for the attractions, no surprise here…but Magic Kingdom came up as our Number 1 in the Rides Category! The collection of classics like Peter Pan’s Flight, Space Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean won our readers over with 17,627 votes!
Entrance Loop Music
Our next category is a pretty polarizing one. We asked which park is the best in the Entrance Loop Music Category! Once again, Magic Kingdom went for gold with 18,700 votes.
Places to Relax and People Watch
With a stellar score of 13,089 votes, EPCOT won the Places to Relax and People Watch Category. Animal Kingdom came second with 7,074 votes, Magic Kingdom got third place with 6,903 votes, and Hollywood Studios slid in the last place with 3,090 votes.
Our final question was in the Shopping Category: Who is best? Ultimately, Magic Kingdom won ANOTHER section with 17,425 votes. Animal Kingdom was dead, dead last in this one with only 1,510 votes. Wow! Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom couldn’t win a single category!
You’ve probably guessed already but Magic Kingdom has won our readers’ hearts as the best park in Disney World overall. Totaled up, Animal Kingdom came in last place with 20,541 votes, Hollywood Studios took third with 32,692 votes, EPCOT (despite tanking in the Rides Category!) placed second with 55,302 votes, and Magic Kingdom WON our Battle of the Parks with a WHOPPING 77,640 votes!
Wowza! You guys love you some Magic Kingdom! It makes sense since it’s the flagship park of WDW 😉. If you’d like to vote in future polls and MORE head on over to Instagram and give us a follow at @disneyfoodblog. We’ll see you over there!
