    I've never went to Disney that we didn't also go to Sea World. I have never been to any of the other parks listed so I voted for Sea World.

    Of your options listed, I'd vote for IOA, I love roller coasters and the Hulk is up there on my top 10 for coasters I've ridden. However, after a 1/2 day at IOA and the other 1/2 at Universal, I don't care when - if ever I get back. I was really turned off when I could see the outside of the park from the lift hill of one of the dragon coasters, not to mention the garbage dumpsters. And there was gum and other "splotches" stuck to the ground everywhere - and -gasp - spilled popcorn in one of the queue lines! No magic to speak of, I knew I was still in Kansas Toto- okay, Florida, but you get the picture.

    what are these "non-disney" parks of which you speak of?




    I have been to Universal 2 time and hated it both times, been to IoA 1 time and hated it cause of the coster, been to sea world 2 time hated it cause I dont care about sea animals, and been to Busch Gardens a few times and hated it cause of there costers...

    so that just leaves Disney. I dont like any other park in all of Florida (never been to out of Fl parks)(never been out of FL besides NY and Colorado)
    Faith is my name, disney is my...obsession

    Since Pluto is no longer a planet. I think Mickey should be the new one.

    Lemme get this straight, you hate an entire theme park because you see it has a coaster in it? Have you even stopped to check out the rest of the park and what it has to offer? Did you know that all those parks have something for everyone, including those that don't like coasters? Yeah, it might not be that well known or the most popular thing ever in the park, but they are there, and they are quite enjoyable. Have you ever stopped by Jurassic Park's Camp Jurassic play area? Even though it's a kid's play area, it's still a neat area to go explore no matter how old you are and really take in the whole JP theming. There's also an entire island dedicated to kid friendly rides and attractions, and it's all based off the works of Dr. Seuss. There are other attractions and stuff to see that you can enjoy without having to strap onto a coaster, so don't say you hate an entire theme park without giving the entire theme park a chance.

    I had to do the entire IoA park cause we went for my cousin's b-day and we did everything she wanted to do. at U.S I went with school in groups so I had to do everything my group wanted to do. Sea World we went for my brother one year and did whatever he wanted to do. and Busch Gardens I go with my dad/stepmom/and grandparents so I had to do everything they wanted to do.
    so I have done the entire parks for all those parks.

    the ONLY place where I have a say in what we do is when we go to WDW.
    not even at home do I have a say in anything.

    so I do the entire park of every park when we go. and still dont like it.

    It's a tough choice between Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure because they are both amazing!

    Off of this list, SeaWorld. I also think Discovery Cove should be added to the list. I went for the first time earlier this month because I am working with the park and had a blast! It is so different from any other park I have been to. I loved the aviary and the dolphin swim, I learned so much and it was so cool to really interact with the animals! Has anyone else been lately?

    Re: What Non - Disney park do you like best?

    One of my favorite non-Disney parks was not listed on the poll,so I didn't do the poll.I do like all of the other parks listed,but I chose not to vote.However,if this park I am about to mention would have been on the poll,I would have voted for............Dollywood,in Pigeon Forge Tenn.
    If yall have not been to Dollywood,yall don't know what yall are missing.I won't even try to describe it.Let's put it this way;even if it's your first time there,it feels like home.For those that read this, that has been to Dollywood,yall know what I am talking about.Yes I said YALL several times! Yes I'm from the south,yes I'm from somewhere just a little north of Disney,yeah I'm a southern boy!Born and raised!Here in my state,we had a peanut farmer for our president back in the 70's.So there.Can yall guess where I'm from?Right! About 200 miles south of Dollywood!

    I would pick Islands, but the others are all fun and offer different options. However, I felt like I was cheating on a great love when I went to the Universal parks. At least you can do both in one day, and get back to the Magic.

    Re: What Non - Disney park do you like best?

    I think Universal is pretty good, but the only reason we travel to Florida is to go to WDW. We end up going to other parks because we figure that we might as well go while we're out there. I am looking forward to seeing what happens at IOA with the Harry Potter stuff.
