It’s not really a secret that Disney has created some incredible theme parks.
If you’re looking for an amazing theme park experience, Disney World is likely at the top of your list. From the rides to the shows, there’s a LOT going on in Disney World to cultivate the theme park experience.
Take a look at our list of what Disney World does better than many other theme parks!
Disney World basically has a Ph.D. in theming. Hello, you are already fully immersed as soon as you walk into Magic Kingdom and there’s a castle at the end of Main Street, U.S.A.! Except for maybe Universal Studios and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Disney World takes the cake when it comes to theming. Even most of the ride queues are immersive!
If you truly want to feel like you’ve entered another world, Disney World delivers. From the rides to the decor, it’s all about fantasy and magic!
Cast Members are totally different from many other theme park employees. A lot of Cast Members have a passion for the Walt Disney Company, and they tend to be friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. In fact, Disney Cast Member training is known to focus on more than just transactional interactions.
Instead, Disney focuses more on transformational interactions, and they take training further than just teaching employees how to perform tasks. Instead, they teach the major components of the parks, which includes the history of the company and emotional connections.
From security to entering a park to getting in line, Disney World has efficiency down to a science. Sure, you still have to wait in lines at times, but the efficiency of Disney is unmatched.
Disney World is known for its cleanliness. While you might notice overflowing trash cans in many other theme parks, you generally won’t find that in Disney Parks. In fact, trash cans are specifically placed every 30 feet to prevent guests from throwing trash on the ground.
Smell is also a big part of Disney World — but we mean good smells! Disney pumps pleasant smells throughout the parks to help prevent bad smells. And we have to mention our appreciation for the Disney custodial Cast Members who are constantly cleaning to maintain that optimum level of cleanliness!
Disney World is not afraid of innovation, and they are often looking into the future and incorporating new technology, like the MagicBand+. You might also consider other innovations and changes like the Disney Skyliner, the EPCOT transformation, and LOTS more that have majorly impacted Disney World.
Disney is constantly working to improve the parks through attraction refurbishments, renovations, and changes. While it’s not always fun to find your favorite ride under refurbishment, it’s all for the purpose of maintaining a certain standard for Disney World.
Not only do renovations improve aesthetics, they can also maintain safety, and even prevent attractions from sudden closures as a result of regular maintenance.
Okay, this one is kind of unfair because Disney characters are magical, so there’s not really an argument here unless you don’t like Disney characters. But in general, who doesn’t want to meet the iconic Mickey and Minnie Mouse??
Right now, character meet-and-greets are modified in Disney World, but there’s still nothing quite like coming face to face with your fave Disney character.
Rides for Everyone
