Magic Kingdom, it's just so Disney, thats where all the Magic Starts

Islands of Adventure, big coasters and Wizarding World of Harry Potter :)

Magic kingdom

Because it is in my opinion the best Disney park to suit any age there is something there to suit everyone if you were in a group

I love the shops in main st and

I just think you get so much out of this park more so than the others but I love the other disney parks too there brilliant

The universal one is a tough one to choose coz they both have good rides but I have to go with universal studios

The reason being I love the Simpsons ride I think it's one of the best ride in Orlando definitely in my top 5

Plus I just love walking around universal studios and think the setting and building fronts are brilliant

Totally have to agree with Magic Kingdom. It is Disney. I love the other parks too, but hands down the Magic Kingdom puts a smile on my face each time.

I have always loved Epcot! It's so big that even when it's crowded, you can find a quiet place to sit. I love the educational component of the rides & attractions, and I love love love the countries! The shopping, the food, and oh those adult beverages!

IOA, except for Simpsons and E.T, the other side has very few rides we are interested in. Magic Kingdom is a great park if you have little kids, but it's Epcot for me. Also, there are no "adult beverages" in the Magic Kingdom! What's magic about that? It will be funny if when they open Gaston's in the new Fantasyland expansion they don't sertve liquor since I think in the movie it showed them drinking beer.

IOA for sure.

For kids,or adults with a big kid streak, MK is the way to go. But a lot of adults do prefer Epcot as it is a more relaxing day.

Oh goodness me..it's gotta be the Magic Kingdom!

It truly is magical,when you stand on Main St and view the Castle for the first time.It takes your breath away!! I just love the way you can go from the future,in tomorrowland,then the past in Heritage Square..then off to be a cowgirl in Frontierland!

After tht,you can be a pirate in Adventureland,and become a child again in Fantasyland. I wouldn't miss the Dumbo ride or Carousel for the world!!

(I'm getting emotional here people!!) ;+))

I love them all but if I had to chose it would be Epcot for me. It's always been my favourite (even though my absolute favourite ride is at the Disney Studios; Tower of Terror). I love all the countries at Epcot and the last time we went we did all the Kim Possible things with our 9 year old; they're genius.

US I think I prefer the original studios; I love the theming. However, the Harry Potter bit wasn't open when we were there last so once I see that I might change my mind.
