  • Why is Disneyland the best Disney park?

    Okay, I admittedly have only been to Disneyland and DCA out of all of the worldwide Disney parks. I firmly believe that DL must be the best out of all the parks, but I don't have any concrete evidence as to why!

    Why do YOU think DL is the best? Or for those of you who have been lucky to at least make it to Orlando or even France, Japan, or China; is DL really the best? Why? I'm looking especially for logical explanations, not just "because its the first park."

    Thanks!
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

    Churros. The Churros at other parks are usually stale and old. By sheer volume of business, Disney has to keep their churros fresh.

      I don't think Disneyland is the best Disney park, but it's certainly the most magical as it's the original. As far as theming goes, it's far surpassed by Disneyland Paris and Tokyo DisneySea. I think the only things Disneyland does best is entertainment (having both Fantasmic and Remember...Dreams Come True) and the sheer quantity of attractions.

        Makes sense. I guess I can consider this thread closed.

            So true!
            Took mom to Disneyland for the first time in over 20 years this week! Woo!

              Disneyland 1995, after Indy but before everything started going to crap, is the best Disney park in my opinion. There was a good mix of new stuff coming every couple of years plus old classics were still open.

                Some people consider it the best, because it is the original and the only park Walt ever had a physical connection to. All the parks have good and bad points. It's a highly subjective and personal question i guess.

                  I think it depends on what criteria you are talking about.

                  For nostalgia and intimacy I think Disneyland would be the front runner.

                  For state of the art theming, expense, elegance, and detail, Tokyo Disney Sea would win out. I think Disneyland Paris would be a close second.

                  Depends on what you are looking for I guess.

                    Disneyland IS Walt's park. His fingeprints are still all over the place. It has a magic and charm that no other Disney Prk has because it is Walt's Dream.

                      Overall... it is the best for it's charm, nostalgic values, entertainment, and amount of great attractions that all can enjoy... all packed into a tiny bit of space.

                      And though it has a few scars right now they will soon be healed.

                        I know Disneyland will always be my favorite for its nostalgic value. Other Disney parks may be technically "better", and I hope to someday have the chance to visit them and decide if I feel that way, but I'll never be able to have another favorite.

                        So yeah, ask me again in ten to fifteen years from now, when I've actually visited all the parks.

                          IMO it's the best because of that feeling you get when you walk down main street. I get that warm, fuzzy feeling everytime we walk down the street. It's wonderful and it has such a wide range of rides. I love that my little ones can go on rides like Pirates or Small World and enjoy them the same way I can.

                          Also all the yummy treats:

                          churros
                          dole whip
                          everything in pooh's corner
                          popcorn

                            consider it was the first park that was build and the magic is truly there.

                              I like Disneyland because it was Walts original park. It still has Mr. Toad, the cinema, the arcade. I wish we did here at WDW! Not happy though about the Gallery closing.

                              For design, Disneyland Paris is my favorite (of the 3 I've visited). Ours would come in last.

                                Because it's the only Disney park with five steam locomotives?

                                    Disneyland is the best park of all.
                                    It's so good they attempted to put an amusement park in Disneyland's parking lot.
                                    Did they do that at any of the other Disney parks? I don't think so!

                                    :lol:

                                      I have to go with "Walt was personally involved", too. And the people who came up in the WDP/WED/WDI ranks were there building and running the park hands-on everyday, with a clear vision of what Walt wanted them to do. The lands have clear visions and offer fully immersive experiences, without any jarring discordances or improper transitions.

                                      Change is a fact of life and I have no problems with change, as long as it's done with a full understanding of what's around it and how it affects the whole. And you don't deliberately destroy the past just because it's gotten old.

                                      Either freshen it up, or actively preserve it for future generations - either in place, or have it removed for conservation. (If I knew who ordered the Mary Blair TL tile murals destroyed... :mob: )

                                      Some DL CM's Managers and Executives still "get it", and they should be lauded and encouraged.

                                      Some don't, and the damage that they've done to the once cohesive vision behind the park (now parks plural) will still be visible for years.

                                        I LOVE Disneyland - but my two favorite Disney parks are Tokyo Disney Sea and Epcot. Disneyland comes in at a close 3rd.
