Re: Which Disney Park
did someone say Disney?
Which park...question of the century.
It will be packed when you go, so avoiding crowds probably won't be an option. If it is thrill rides that you seek and pop culture references, I would head to Hollywood studios. They have the aetosmith rock n roller coaster, the tower of terror, star tours, which is unbelievably good, and some awesome shows like Indians Jones epic stunt spectacular, lights, motor, action stunt show. There is the American idol experience where people actually audition in a real singing competition and the winner gets a ticket to a real American idol audition.
Toy story mania is an awesome 3d ride where you play old midway type games for fun. Fantasmic is one of the best nighttime shows. Very cool effects.
magic kingdom...this is the most Disney of any park. Here is where all the movies from Disney come to life and here is where all the beloved rides are...classics like pirates of the Caribbean, space mountain, hammed mansion, jungle cruise, splash mountain, big thunder mountain, it's a small world, peter pans flight, buzz lightyear space ranger spin, etc. awesome parade at 3pm and one at night. Great fireworks show as well. By the way, seven dwarfs mine train isn't open yet.
Epcot is definitely not a boring place. They have some good rides such as soarin', test track, which they just revamped, mission: space, all of which are in future land.
Epcot is split into 2 sections, future land and world showcase. Future land opens st 9 and the other at 11. the world showcase is like a high quality world's fair. It showcases Mexico, Norway, Morocco, China, Japan, Germany, Italy, Canada, France, UK, and USA. Norway and Mexico have rides and USA, Canada, France, and China have shows. They all have restaurants that serve their unique cuisines, except USA, unless you count burgers and chicken fingers as our unique cuisine.
There are unique gifts your can purchase at each country and unique adult beverages. By the way, each country has cast members from that actual country, so if your are in Norway, you will meet the tall blond haired, blue eyed people from Norway. Stay for illuminations when the park closes...great show and there are .
Animal kingdom has the Kilimanjaro safari ride where you really do see rhinos, elephants,etc add you rider along in an open air vehicle. Sometime u mentioned expedition Everest, which is a very good coaster. There are two great shows in three lion king and finding Nemo. Both are"musicals"in a sense, but have a very unique flair to them. There is also a"mouse"coaster over in Dino land USA. Hard to describe, but it is a roller coaster in which the car can rotate. They have an awesome 4 pm parade Abbas most people empty out after. One thing that you need to know is that this park elk close early on the winter due to the animals...gets dark early, so animals are off to sleep. Probably won't get the best band for your buck there due to that.
I hope this helps. Have fun!
Even George knew this streak would happen
