I’m guessing that because Main St. USA doesn’t have land at the end is why it didn’t get any votes, but maybe that’s my fault for not posing the question as favourite area, rather than land. As for the winner, I can see why people like it, but I disagree – a land that holds both Pirates of the Caribbean and Blue Lagoon is a sure thing in anyone’s book – well, it is in mine at least.

Fantasyland is very pretty but it’s a little bit too sugary sweet for my liking. I much prefer the more rugged landscapes of Adventureland and Frontierland. On a summer’s day nothing looks better than the sun reflecting off of the lake in Adventureland with the backdrop of Captain Hook’s ship and Skull Rock, with Pirates of the Caribbean looking in the background. I think the only think that comes close for me is looking straight down Main St USA and seeing the Castle at the end, which could rival Adventureland, depending on my mood. So maybe my phrasing of nothing looks better should have a caveat for the Castle.

Discoveryland has some amazing visuals, like the X-Wing and Jabba The Hutt’s Sail Barge near Star Tours, Space Mountain 2, Videopolis and even Orbitron can be quite the spectacle. However, I get a cold feeling when I’m in Discoveryland – it just doesn’t seem as welcoming.

Disneyland Park is absolutely beautiful and these rankings are only varying degrees of great, there’s no bad in Disneyland Park.
