This past year, Facebook users did an awful lot of checking into places where people go to supposedly disconnect. Three national parks—Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone—were among the top ten most checked-into places in the U.S. in 2014, according to the social network’s Year in Review. In 2013, no national parks made the top ten list.

The three parks helped replace several sports stadiums, including Dodger Stadium, AT&T Park, Rangers Ballpark, and Fenway Park, according to Skift. Topping the list were Disney properties such as Walt Disney World and Disneyland. It’s the second year in a row that Disney’s parks have taken the top spot.

See below for the full rankings.
