When you’re talking about Disney World, it’s important to know that each theme park is unique and completely different on many levels. One of the ways that I’ve seen folks differentiate the parks is by the actual number of rides.

  • Is it the right way to judge a park’s enjoyment and excitement?
  • Do you want to ride the most rides in a day?
  • Quality over Quantity?
