Every Disney theme park in the world is majestic. Even the ones that absorb online criticism only do so for an unfair reason. The only true comparison for a Disney theme park is another Disney theme park. With all due respect to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, nothing else is on the level of Disney. Period. That’s why the “worst” Disney park is a misnomer. It’s also why the BEST Disney theme park is such a momentous title. Several gates around the world are worthy of the title, but which one deserves it the most? Here is my ranking of the best individual Disney parks in the world.

7. Tokyo Disneyland

Two American parks, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure, aren’t quite there at the moment, but they should be night and day better soon.

In perusing the possibilities, I settled on two theme parks that had multiple gates worthy of selection. Those parks are Tokyo Disney Resort and Walt Disney World. The first three entries on this list all come from these two campuses, and they claim two of the top three spots as well.

It has Japanese versions of American staples like Haunted Mansion, It’s a Small World, Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Splash Mountain. In terms of sheer volume, it’s every bit as good as Disneyland and Magic Kingdom in this regard. It also features some distinctive attractions such as Pooh’s Hunny Hut and Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek.

The Oriental Land Company has done a masterful job in building a park that’s on a par with the greatest theme parks in the world. They’ve managed to carve out their own niche, too. This will become clear later in the article.
