Disney World Snubbed on a ‘Best Theme Parks’ List

Disney World sure isn’t the only theme park in the United States, but we’re kind of partial to thinking it’s pretty great — we are Disney Food Blog, after all.

And although Florida isn’t the only spot in the United States where thrill-seekers can go to test their limits — it looks like another Orlando theme park has been voted the best in the country according to an online poll. So, let’s find out which park took the top spot!

According to News 6, SeaWorld Orlando has been named the Best Theme Park in the United States based on a new USA Today online popularity poll.

A panel of experts and USA Today editors chose the initial list of nominees and readers then voted on which parks deserved to be in the top ten. So take the ratings with a grain of salt since not every theme park was included.

Not only was SeaWorld Orlando voted number one, but its new rollercoaster, Ice Breaker, received the most votes for Best New Attraction as well. SeaWorld executives shared, “Our goal is to provide fun and inspirational experiences for families and friends through our parks’ up-close animal encounters, thrilling attractions and innovative educational entertainment, designed to insure guests of all ages celebrate, connect with and care for the natural world around them.”

So, how did Disney parks do in this poll? Well, not too great. Neither Disney World nor Disneyland were included in the top ten, which you can see here:

  • SeaWorld Orlando – Orlando, FL
  • Silver Dollar City – Branson, MO
  • Kings Island – Mason, OH
  • Busch Gardens Williamsburg – Williamsburg, VA
  • Busch Gardens Tampa Bay – Tampa, FL
  • Cedar Point – Sandusky, OH
  • Dollywood – Pigeon Forge, TN
  • Six Flags Magic Mountain – Valencia, CA
  • Holiday World – Santa Claus, IN
  • Hersheypark – Hershey, PA

Disney World didn’t make the cut this time.

You may noticed that Universal is also missing from this top 10 list. For the latest theme park news and more, be sure to stay tuned to DFB!
