Facebook users love Disneyland

It’s no secret that there are Disney fanatics everywhere.

Especially if you’re on Facebook.  Reminds us of an old joke: “how can you tell if someone loves Disney? — don’t worry, they’ll tell you.”

One feature that Facebook has is the Check In, where you can tell all your friends and family (and strangers) where you are in the world.  And wouldn’t you know it that people are really proud of posting that they’re at any of the world’s Disney parks?

It’s almost gloating.  “Look at me, I’m at Disney and you’re not.  Suck it.”

So, that being said, here are the TOP 25 PLACES IN THE WORLD THAT FACEBOOK USERS HAVE CHECKED IN for 2013, as broken out by country:

  • Argentina: Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires
  • Australia: Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), East Melbourne, Victoria
  • Brazil: Parque Ibirapuera, São Paulo
  • Canada: Rogers Arena, Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Egypt: Sharm el-Sheikh, South Sinai Governorate, Egypt
  • France: Disneyland Paris, Marne La Vallée
  • Germany: Reeperbahn, Hamburg
  • Hong Kong: Hong Kong Disneyland
  • Iceland: Blue Lagoon, Reykjavík, Iceland
  • India: Harmandir Sahib (The Golden Temple)

Should Americans be dismayed that the number one Facebook check-in in the US is at Disneyland instead of someplace more historic or meaningful, when compared to other countries?
