Vote up the most convincing evidence that Disneyland boasts the superior brand of magic.

In the United States, there are two places Disney fans consider to be the holy land: Disney World in Orlando, FL, and Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. While both amusement parks are fantastic, in the battle of Disneyland versus Disney World, Disneyland unarguably comes out on top.

To be fair, both parks feature everyone's favorite characters and exciting rides (with many rides appearing in both locations), as well as amazing secrets that make visiting feel even cooler. And in June 2020, both parks announced they would be transforming their respective Splash Mountains into the more inclusive theme of The Princess and the Frog.
