  • Any parks you don't visit?

    A comment in another thread got me thinking about this. Are there any of the four parks that you just don't generally visit or, if you skip them, it doesn't bother you?

    While the Studios is our least favourite park, we always ensure we do all four every trip.

    I don't skip any park. However, there always ends up being at least one park that I spend less time in. In years past that park has been Epcot that than changed somewhat with the slow but thorough gutting of Hollywood Studios and my taking the Undiscovered Future World tour. My coming trip I imagine that I'll avoid Hollywood Studios almost entirely due to Star Wars and will probably spend significantly less time in Epcot due to the demolition and construction that will be going on.

      We’ve never skipped an entire park, although we have skipped World Showcase a few times. I could easily skip Epcot altogether though since there’s really only Soarin’ that I care about going on. I use to have to ride Spaceship Earth but anymore it really doesn’t matter to me. I’m so glad it’s going to be refurbed.

        I skip Animal Kingdom. We went the first two years it opened and I haven't been there since.

          We spend the least amount of time in Hollywood Studios. Most of our time is between Epcot and Animal Kingdom.
          That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

            Never been to Animal Kingdom. No interest.

            I don't like to see animals taken from their natural habitat. I'm weird that way.

                For awhile we've only been able to fit in three day trips so we skip one park. The last time we did all the parks in a trip was 2012. The last few years we skipped AK starting when Pandora was first added. This year we skipped Epcot so we could finally do Pandora and miss all the refurbishment going on in Epcot.

                  We don't skip any of the parks but we do spend the least amount of time in AK - only one day. The rest of the parks get multiple visits per trip

                    We have only been twice and thus have not skipped a park. Since it will be a while before we get back I doubt we will skip any the next time either. There will be new things for us to see in most of the parks and I wouldn't want to miss any of that.

                      I try to visit all the parks on my trips, but a few times I didn't visit the AK as it was quite far from whatever resort I was staying at. It's a long bus ride. Especially from the MK and DS resorts. Although I'm in the DS area this time I will be going.

                        Even on a very short visit, we do not skip a park, even Studios, which is my least favorite. Thank goodness for hoppers those two short trips. Our trips are usually 11 to 12 days so we try to spend at least 3 days per park, and then choose where we want to return for a 4th time.

                          I’d give anything to be able to spend 10+ days in a row! We almost always travel during school breaks so at most it’s 5-6 days. Hopefully in 2 years when DS graduates we can take extended trips 😁

                        That sounds so much like us. If we stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge then we spend more time at Animal Kingdom, but if we are at a resort far away from it, we might not.

                          On our long trips, we visit all of the parks. We usually do two days at MK and Epcot, one day at AK, and one day at HS. On our weekend trips, we switch up which 2 parks to visit. This December, my kids have chosen to visit HS and Epcot on our short trip. In April we will visit MK and AK.

                            It's interesting how quite a few people skip Animal Kingdom. I guess that helps explain why Disney expanded it with Pandora to encourage more visitors.

                              It has been in my top two since it opened. I enjoy everything about it ( except the carnival games 😄 ). Everyone has different interests I suppose.
