    Personally, I go to Disneyland in California about 2-3 times per month, Universal Studios once a month, Knott's Berry Farm once a year, and once a year make a trip to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida. I would like to visit Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH.

    My favorite is Epcot in Orlando.

    I'd like to go to Cedar Point one of these days as well.

    Disneyland in California has some of the best people watching in the world. Probably second only to www.peopleofwalmart.com

    Local parks in our area like Silver Dollar City, Worlds of Fun or 6 Flags. Getting ready to go to Disney Hong Kong next week and we went to Disney Paris a couple month ago.
    My Coke Rewards typically runs great deals on passes to the secondary parks like 6 Flags. Usually in the Spring but they get cheaper through the Summer. The best deal they run is the 6 Flags season passes. They cost a lot of points but one of the better deals on MCR's.

    I'm on my way to Kennywood on July 1... one of the only parks that is part of the National Historic Record, I understand. Cedar Point was just too far to do in a single day. :(

    For me one of the best things about Disney that is has changed so much from when I was young. Not only the parks physically, but my perception of the storytelling, my understanding of how the rides and attractions operate, and of course the people watching.

    Although a lot of it is kid-oriented, there is plenty for adults and most of the nighttime entertainment still brings a smile to my face even after I've seen it dozens upon dozens of times.

    I can be a productive member of society and still like cartoons. :rolleyes:

    Disney Hollywood Studios and Boardwalk are both basically for adults. There may be some kid stuff, but Boardwalk after dark is strictly adult. Hollywood studios may seem like it is for kids, but most is actually for adults.

    It's been over 20 years since my last visit, but back then I thought that Epcot was reasonably interesting for adults. Not enough to make me want to go back at current ticket prices, though.

    My favorite parks are state and national parks. :)
