The Land vs. The World

Captain EO!!
Everyone wonders, which is better, Disneyland or Disney World. The answer is neither, really, but here are some differences we noticed as WDW veterans exploring Disneyland.

Disneyland is more detailed. Everywhere you look, there are tiny little things that make you feel transported. In some ways WDW feels like a knockoff.

WDW you are immersed in Disney, at DL, you're most likely staying off site, not quite the same. On the same token while I met some great castmembers, I felt that a lot weren't as into it as the people in WDW.

The typical guest has a feeling of ownership. They're also super park savvy. In WDW a lot of people are wandering and confused. At DL, they know where they're going and what to do.

Even with longer park hours, the locals stay and stay and stay. At 11:45, the lines for the coasters were still over 20 minutes.

Everything is super close together, and you're able to bypass a ride with a longer wait, and come back without losing a ton of time walking.

The counter service food at DL rocks, and they sell fresh fruit and healthy snacks everywhere!

Both are worth going to over, and over, and over, and over...

And now for the last (really!) pictures from DL.. Tomorrow is a travel day for us, we're going north for the 4th of July, returning here next weekend for 7 nights at our beach. We all hate to leave even for a couple days, but knowing we're returning makes it a little easier.

Toy Story Mania, the only ride we waited in line for really. Devin told Mr
Potato Head he was stupid, and he replied "I heard that you hockey puck!"

Finally there!

Why we go to Disney..
