Some recent Disney price hikes outpace inflation. But the crowds keep coming for now.
From an early age, the world has been enchanted by the fantasy lands of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Today, the world’s fascination with Disney is perhaps best observed in the countless online polls that periodically track how many Americans visit the parks each year.
This Disney Parks Blog poll, conducted in July, has garnered some remarkable results. The poll asked readers of the Disney Parks Blog to select “Best Disney Resort” when asked which resort they enjoyed most that year. The survey had respondents from more than 8,500 voting households.
Below is a running tally of the survey’s top ten resorts based on results from the first 50 states.
The results show that The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort ranks as the No. 1 resort in America. The Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort has consistently made the top ten since the survey began in January 2010, with Walt Disney World in Orlando topping the list each year. The Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort, however, took an unexpected tumble in this year’s top ten.
The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort is among three Walt Disney World resorts that consistently rank in the top ten. Those three resorts — the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Epcot/Disney California Adventure Resort Complex — have combined to have made more than 30 trips each to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando since 2010.
The survey shows that Walt Disney World has received the most votes for No. 1–2.5 million. The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort ranks as the No. 1 resort in the United States. Orlando ranks first worldwide, with Disney World in Orlando receiving more votes for the No. 1 ranking than any other resort worldwide.
The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort remains the No. 1 resort in the United States and remains one of only three Walt Disney World resorts to rank in the top ten. In all, the survey results show that Orlando’s Walt Disney World Resort has enjoyed the second-highest growth rate of any resort in America.
