    Great list Walt Jr. Kinda says it all. However I do like DCA better than MGM Studios, but I guess since people are already in Florida they spend a day there too.

      Actually, you'll notice Hong Kong Disneyland at Number 18 and Disney Studios Paris is no where to be found.

      That means all three parks conceived by Paul Pressler and Co. are the duds.

          Actually... Disney Studios Paris doesn't even crack the top 25.


          Considering DCA has beat Universal Hollywood, Sea World, Six Flags AND Knott's, let's not use this thread to bash DCA, especially when the title of this thread is incorrect.

          EDIT: merlin jones beat me to it.

            It is amazing to see Tokyo Disney Sea's attendance almost equal to Tokyo Disneyland. Disney Sea was built around the same time as DCA. I wonder if executives who made the decisions to cut DCA's budget still got their annual bonuses that year?

              What I find interesting is the fact that Disney owns the top 8 spots. Wonder how 2nd/3rd/4th gate parks (i.e. DCA, Epcot, etc.) would fair on the list if they had to stand somewhere else on their own?
              Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

                How is the title incorrect?

                  Not too much of a surprise I guess. Sorta sad though.

                    It's correct now. "U.S." is a recent addition to the title.

                    See earlier posts.

                      You aren't trying to suggest that numbers are showing that Disney has made serious mistakes about what the public wants, are you?

                        It beat out IOA and USH! Another way to spin it is it's Number 2 in California. Knott's and Magic Mtn are not even on that list

                          This isn't a suprise to me.

                          But mostly all Disney parks are in the Top 10.

                            Heh, for DCA to currently be #13 in attendance worldwide doesn't seem that bad. Is being ranked at #13 unlucky, who knows? Still, for a U.S. Disney park to not attract even 6 million guests is pathetic. Improvement is needed. If you look at the numbers, DCA is close to being #11. So hopefully, it'll be on the top ten list(not Dave's) soon...
                            Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

                              If you notice, the list goes 9, 10, 11, 11, 13. There is no #12.
