Comparing the Size of Disney's Theme Parks

Here are the sizes of the Disney Theme Parks from smallest to largest! Figures are from the current date (2/24/2012)!

  1. The SMALLEST Disney theme park in the world is Disney California Adventure - 55 acres (not counting the Cars Land expansion, which is not open at this time);
  2. Hong Kong Disneyland - approximately 60 acres (55 not counting the new Toy Story PlayLand);
  3. Walt Disney Studios Paris - 62 acres;
  4. Disneyland Park (California) - 85 acres;
  5. Tokyo DisneySea - 122 acres;
  6. Tokyo Disneyland - 126 acres, and Disneyland Paris - 126 acres;
  7. Magic Kingdom - 142 acres;
  8. Disney’s Hollywood Studios - 154 acres;
  9. Epcot - 300 acres;
  10. The BIGGEST Disney theme park in the world is Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park- 500 acres.
Now, let's analyze these very interesting figures:
  • The Walt Disney World Resort contains the four biggest Disney Parks ever built (Shanghai Disneyland's acreage is still unknown at this time, as the park is still under construction);
  • The biggest Disney theme park in the world (Disney's Animal Kingdom) is also the one with the least amount of rides (not counting animal exhibits or shows);
  • The two smallest Disney theme park in the world (Disney California Adventure and Hong Kong Disneyland) are currently the ones receiving the most attention;
  • Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Park Paris have almost exactly the same acreage;
  • Disney's Hollywood Studios is 12 acres bigger than the Magic Kingdom. Surprising, huh?
  • The Magic Kingdom in Florida is 57 acres bigger than the original Disneyland Park in California;
  • Tokyo Disney Sea is exactly in the middle of the list, making it the "average" Disney park (and that's very far from being true in real life, of course!);
  • There's a 158 acres difference between the size of the magic Kingdom and Epcot.
  • Disney California Adventure, Hong Kong Disneyland, Walt Disney Studios Paris, Disneyland Park, and Tokyo DisneySea would ALL fit inside Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at the same time!
