Social media is the place to be if you’re interested in keeping up with the latest in what’s trending. From Facebook to Twitter to TikTok and everything in between, it’s a common platform for all ages to speak their minds, share photos and videos, and scroll for entertainment.

We’ve seen recent viral videos from Disney Parks such as the Port Neches-Groves Indians Marching Band and its controversial chant. Or how about the guy that jumped off Big Thunder Mountain Railroad for his phone! Of course, the sweet moments are our favorite viral videos such as a Disney character using sign language to greet a child.

But with Disney’s most recent price hikes, upcharge of the former FastPass service, and the rough reputation of the current Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, we honestly weren’t sure how TikTok viewers would rank Disney in the midst of the seemingly uncertain time.

As searches for “travel TikTok videos” have ballooned by over 350 percent over the past year, Next Vacay decided to do a new study to figure out what younger Millennials and Gen Z travelers believe were the top travel destinations. Forbes shared the top five picks.

The five TikTok destination picks span all over the world including 5) Grand Canyon, Arizona; 4) Taj Mahal, Agra, India; 3) Eiffel Tower, Paris, France; 2) Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE; and yes, you guessed it 1) Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Florida!

Walt Disney World has over 8.6 views on TikTok which lands it in the number one position for the most popular tourist destination according to TikTok travelers.

We’re thrilled to hear Disney’s magic is still alive and well among its Millennial and Gen Z travelers. With Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary celebration currently underway, now is the perfect time to get planning your next Disney vacation to “the happiest place on Earth.”

Happy planning, Disney fans!

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
