When you're saving up for the vacation of your dreams and seeing how much you spend on a trip to Disney, you'll no doubt want every penny to go towards the best possible experience for your family. And without a doubt, knowing how to choose the best Disney World park for your family is one of the factors that can affect your trip the most!
On this post
One of the wonderful things about Disney in Orlando is that there are so many amazing theme parks for you to enjoy on your trip.
For the most part, all parks offer something for every age group, but some parks may be better enjoyed by specific ages and styles.
So the best way to be honest about this list is to say the best Disney World park in some specific scenarios and at the end we will give our verdict on the best park in general and objective.
Before we start the list of the best Disney theme parks, we need to clarify one thing: this is not a definitive guide, there will always be exceptions!
the best park in Disney World for your kids, parents or friends is the one they want to visit.
We have already seen it happen with many of our customers where our analysis showed that a particular park was not the best one due to other better options for it, however in some there are external factors such as nostalgia.
This particular client had gone to Orlando as a child and had great memories and a particular park. In this case, the park, despite not being the best for his current profile, had an element that made it perhaps the best choice for his trip.
So one thing I would like to recommend is, in addition to following our list here, be sure to watch videos on youtube and research about the parks to get a better idea of what is there so you can also make a conscious choice.
And of course, if you have kids or are traveling in a group, get everyone involved in the decisions! As we usually say, those who plan travel twice!
Show them attraction videos from our YouTube channel. Also, consider what they are currently interested in. Like, do they like Star Wars? The best Disney World park for them might be Disney's Hollywood Studios, especially now with the new area Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
If they can't stop watching “Frozen” for example, head to EPCOT to see Anna and Elsa in their “Frozen 2” themed outfits! And so on..
And of course, if you need professional help to help you put together your screenplay, do not hesitate to contact us!
For adults, it is often more “difficult” to define profiles than for children. Consider their interests and what will bring them the most joy on vacation. to meet characters and taking a ride on attractions is not for all adults, as well as extreme attractions like rollercoaster or simulators.
Anyway, on to the list.

Disney World's Best Park
Well we finally got to the final verdict in a generic and comprehensive way.
In our humble opinion the Best Disney World Park It is:
Previously also listed as the best for those going to disney with kids, the park leaves nothing to be desired for those traveling only in a group of adults.
There are several attractions for the whole family and among them some that are very fun even for those who are fans of extreme attractions such as:
It is the most democratic park in this sense because it appeals to all audiences and in our opinion it is the park that most demonstrates the magic of Disney, from its entrance on Main Street USA where you can already see Cinderella's castle to its incredible attractions that please the whole family.
Therefore, we believe that the Magic Kingdom, which should be on all itineraries, especially those who are going to Orlando for first time.
