Parks and rides

The travelers have spoken. The top amusement parks in the world are an Orlando-dominated mix, according to TripAdvisor's 2014 Travelers' Choice awards. Half the top 10 list is devoted to Floridian attractions, from the splashy, snorkeling fun of dolphin-centric Discovery Cove to the Hogwartsian pleasures of Universal's Islands of Adventure. Just one California park made the list -- Disneyland, of course -- but if you're planning a trip to Brazil, say, or Spain, check out the list.
