    I guess I have to agree with Robert on this one. If I HAD to leave one out I guess it would be AK.

    I'm the same as Robert and John, it would be Animal Kingdom for me, especially if it is really hot.

    The park seems to get so hot and very busy, I think because it is smaller than the others, people congregate in certain places.

    I'm not that keen on Hollywood Studios, but it is growing on me - it's good for people watching, sitting on a bench in the shade, eating an ice cream in Sunset Blvd :D

    We would also leave out Animal Kingdom. My favorite park is Epcot and my wife's is DHS and you can't miss MK on a visit.

    They really need to concentrate on expanding AK IMO.

    I'm with the crowd on this one. I would leave out AK. Yes, it has some really nice attractions/shows/animals, but to me I could give it a pass. I love the shops in DHS, and Fantasmic can't be missed. I could never give up Epcot as it's my favorite and well MK is just Disney. :D Plus MK has HM, my all time favorite ride.

    It would be AK for me too for pretty much the same reasons as everyone stated above, especially if you are going when it's hot!!!

    yep although we enjoyed our visit to tusker house and expedition everest, it was our least favourite too. if you have the ultimate ticket and enough time then go for it but if time is not in your favour then i agree with all above and would miss ak out:yes:

    Bringing back Superstar Television would be huge in my book. The Monsters, Inc roller coaster would also add some additional oomph to the park.

    EPCOT and AK are my favorites, so I'd never leave one of those two out! :eek:

    DHS for me. Nothing much there at all interests me, and I find the park essentially boring. :(

    <table class="wikitable"><tbody><tr><th>Name</th> <th>Attraction Type</th> <th>Description</th> </tr> <tr> <td>Superstar Television</td> <td>Interactive stage show</td> <td>Here, guests could re-enact famous scenes from television history. Using chroma-key technology, the on-stage guests would be shown on TV monitors in the theatre appearing opposite famous celebrities. For example, a female guest would play Ethel Mertz alongside Lucille Ball's Lucy Ricardo in the famous candy factory scene from I Love Lucy. In another example, a guest would appear on the set of The Tonight Show being interviewed by Johnny Carson. It originally opened on May 1, 1989. It closed on September 26, 1998 and was replaced by Disney's Doug Live!. The theatre was renovated to host a new live-action show, the American Idol Experience, inspired by the hit television series of the same name and opened in February 2009.</td></tr></tbody></table>

    I'd have to say Disney's Hollywood Studios as it's my least fave Disney park.

    I can do DHS in 1/2 day (I really only ride Tower of Terror and Rockin Rollercoaster and watch Beauty & The Beast) and then spend the rest of the day at Epcot. Bonus is getting to ride the boat to Epcot. A nice naptime.

    If it's hot, the best parks to be are Epcot (more indoor rides/attractions) and Animal Kingdom (more vegetative canopy...aka shade).

    Interesting you should say this about AK as most say it is the hottest park to be in. However, I'm with you Gwennie :thumbsup:

    I think DHS is the hottest park. I'm broiling by noon there. I don't think there are many shady places around. And even standing in line for RR and TOT, you're in the shade for a while but it's still hot because the fans don't circulate the air all that well.

    I'd skip DHS, in the summer and AK in the winter. I took the parental units to AK in January one time and it was so cold there were hardly any animals out and about! :sorry: Just sayin'...

    The "hot spots" at AK would be standing in line for the Nemo show and EE.

    "Hot spots" at MK is anywhere out in the open LOL! For instance the main pathways through Fantasyland and Tomorrowland and in front of the castle. It gets pretty warm standing and waiting for the 3pm parade, no matter what time of year if you're in the sun.

    "Hot spots" at Epcot are also the main open pathways. But like I said earlier, there are plenty of indoor air-conditioned opportunities around. You don't really have to stand outdoors waiting in line for things. My fave new shady, quiet place to enjoy my margarita outdoors is the handicap ramp up the right side of the temple in MX. Another great quiet shady spot outdoors is in France on the other side of the perfume shop. Nice shady planters to sit on and enjoy your champagne. Two more indoor, air-conditioned, little-used areas are the Art of Adornments exhibit in Morocco and the Anime exhibit in Japan.
