Hollywood Studios has the two best thrill rides in all of Disney World (Tower of Terror and Rockin Roller Coaster), but Magic Kingdom has far more iconic and quality rides.
Amusement parks have always been about the rides for me, so Magic Kindfom would be my choice, though the best park in Orlando for roller coasters and thrill rides is Universal Islands of Adventure.
I'd trade them for Disneyland tickets because Disney World blows. (Epcot).
Is this some weird East Coast vs. West Coast thing, because Disney World is like double the size of Disneyland and has pretty much all the same things plus many, many more.
You are given a ticket to Disney World. So are two of your friends. They go without you.
You all get on two trains at the same time, travelling towards each other. You are going 300kph, they are going 250kph.
Which one of you will hit the car on the tracks first?
I doubt many will agree with me, but I'd go to Epcot. It has tons of great restaurants and theme stores, it has Test Track, and it has that disorienting but super cool space ride thingy?
Me too. I saw the magic kingdom, and it was cool as a kid, but the multicultural theme of epcot is infinitely more interesting to the 20 year old me, probably even more so when I turn 21 and can legally drink wine
Don't go to Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach. Those are water parks that have lots of little kids and can be very nasty if you know what I mean.
If you have young children Magic Kingdom is a great choice as all the rides are fairly tame.
I am honestly having a tough time remembering any of the rides at Animal Kingdom besides the Mt. Everest roller coaster and the safari ride.
My two choices would be between Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Hollywood studios has some cool rides like the Aerosmith and Tower of Terror ones. There is also this fairly long movie theater boat ride which is pretty neat. Hollywood studios also has come really cool shows like an Indiana Jones thing and a car action show.
Epcot is easily the most adult of all the parks. It has many different culturally themed areas with specific rides and restaurants to eat at, some live music too. There are some very cool rides and shows here like an awesome spaceship thing. I would go there again just for the restaurants I didn't get to visit.
You also might want to consider Disney Quest. When I went a long time ago it was pretty cool. It is pretty much a giant arcade with some really unique games to play, also there is stuff like Pac-Man and older thing. When I went it was the cost to get in and then all of these things were free so no tokens or shit.
I'd rule out Animal Kingdom and the water parks because they're fairly one dimensional and close earlier than all the other parks. They're not bad, but you wouldn't get as much out of it.
Hollywood Studios is lot of fun (Car stun show, Tower of Terror, Aerosmith coaster, etc.) especially if you go on a night that's playing Fantasmic (the best park closer show of WDW imo). It's also the least Disney of the bunch, so if you don't care, that's a good park.
Magic Kingdom is all about the nostalgia; the castle, the themes, the atmosphere. It's not as good as it was back in the day, but I've heard good things about the Fantasy Land expansion. The fireworks show is always great, but in terms of rides, you need to fast pass them or you're waiting in long lines. Food options aren't bad, but it's more about character meet n greets than delivering great food.
Epcot is my personal favorite park as Soarin' and Test Track are fun (fast pass them if possible), and the walk around the World Showcase is a blast, especially if you engage in my favorite activity 'Drinking Around the World'. It has the better food options of WDW (Japan, La Celier Steak in Canada, German buffet, etc.), and you can keep busy for most of the day. The park closer show is pretty good, but not as good as MK or HS.
