  • [Question] What do you think was some of Disney's best work?

    For what do you think Disney has produced some of its best work in regards to the following categories? For which do you think Disney has provided its best work and is the greatest around the world?

    For each category rate your favorite attraction, restaurant, etc. in first, second, and third. There can be runner ups if you want . Your favorites do not even have to be limited to the DLR but tell what you think is the best from any of Disney's properties around the world. Even if you have not been to Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disney Resort, or Hong Kong Disneyland, you can give your opinion based on photos/videos/overall impressions. The categories are:

    Disneyland's version of POTC is, to me, the epitome of greatness.

                    The film "Mary Poppins" is the best film to come from the Disney studio, and Disneyland is still their best theme park overall. For E-ticket attraction I would pick Haunted Mansion, though Pirates is also right up there. For D-ticket, Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland, C-ticket, Adventure thru Inner Space, B-ticket Alice in Wonderland.

                              I'll amend what I put earlier, and put as the best attractions:

                              1st: Horizons
                              2nd: World of Motion
                              3rd: Disneyland's Pirates of the Carribean.

                                Thanks OP, fun topic
                                Here is my top 3 for each category and my reasons. I may have a bit of a Disneyland Resort bias because that is the only resort I have been to, however, I am considering POV videos I have seen from other parks.

                                Theme Park:
                                1st: Disneyland
                                (Because Walter Elias Disney said so :P)
                                2nd: Magic Kingdom
                                (It's like Disneyland's big brother)
                                3rd: Tokyo Disney Sea
                                (Looks inspiring, and beautiful - water theme is amazing!)

                                Land:
                                1st: Main Street USA
                                (The land that welcomes you warmly, but also says goodbye and come back soon.. No trip of mine would be complete without absorbing how amazing MS is before journeying on)
                                2nd: World Showcase
                                (Not really a land... but it still kinda is haha, would definitely be fun globetrotting)
                                3rd: A Bug's Land
                                (Because DCA is not complete without it...)

                                Resort:
                                1st: WDW
                                (Because the place has so much to offer)
                                2nd: DLR
                                (The homely place for me, and everything is close and easily accessible)
                                3rd: TDR
                                (Has the 'umph" to surpass HKD, and PDL for me)

                                Hotel:
                                1st: MiraCosta [TDS]
                                (Not only is this place amazingly themed, but it's IN the park!)
                                2rd: Polynesian [WDW]
                                (Wow.. what a place!!)
                                3nd: Grand Californian [DCA]
                                (Not really IN the park, but close enough.. the wilderness theme is also amazing!)

                                Restaurant:
                                1st: Blue Bayou
                                (Too cool, to be able to eat delicious southern food in the tranquil bayou atmosphere)
                                2nd: San Angel Inn
                                (Eating Mexican cuisine under the stars, by Aztec temples, whaaaaaaat!?)

                                (No particular reason, I just personally always go here for lunch)

                                (To go to seas around the world.... Disney style
                                yes, I am a landlubber haha)

                                1st: "Remember... Dreams Come True" [50th Anniv.]
                                (Because it's the best montage, and symbolizes Disney's greatness)
                                2nd: Fantasmic [DL]
                                (Never got tired of watching this show by the riverside, over looking the lights shimmering across the Rivers of America)

                                (Emotion powerhouse representing all parts of life associated with color, beautiful show)
