Anyone notice SDC was 21st in the World Amusement Park rankings this time around. Not US, but the World.

There's a gap between us enthusiasts and the regular folk.  Disney Sea, therefore Disneyland Tokyo are on my must do before I check out list. But, this is Tripadvisor.and it is unscientific. I have found that 41/2 star rated hotels are usually never fails.

You would think the Great Pyramid would crack the top 25 landmark list, it doesn't.

Not only that, but why on earth is Disney Hollywood Studios on that list as far up as it is with the huge mess that it is right now.  Even when it wasn't, I wouldn't have put it above Epcot or DAK and nowhere close to Disneyland or Tivoli, let alone above them. 

I agree with you on this one Swoosh- hokum
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

Some may have based their ranking on past visits before DHS was all torn up or what they may know what it is getting in the Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land. The reasons why it's such a mess. It's home to one of the most popular rides in Midway Mania that will anchor that new Toy Story area.

My son's best friend and his family just got back from Orlando and I asked how tore up it was and they didn't think it was. I asked them if they knew what was coming and the knew a bit about Toy Story but was oblivious on the Star Wars aspect other than the existing Star Tours.

Epcot needs lots of love. I read where they are green lighting a Rat ride for the France pavilion
