The Orange County Register asks: Is Disneyland better than Walt Disney World?
Written by Robert Niles
It's the go-to, let's-start-a-flame war question that "animates" Disney fans — which is better: Walt Disney World or Disneyland?Tweet
The correct answer is, of course, Tokyo Disney, but the Orange County Register asked me to address that question in its newspaper this morning, to mark the reopening of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland.
Thunder's been down for 14 months, and the result is spectacular, with an "explosive" new animated finale replacing the broken old earthquake scene. So we framed the WDW vs. DL question in the context of refurbishment: Which resort ends up doing the better job when it fixes up its rides?
It's all silliness, of course, but I'd like to thank the Register for inviting me to engage in this level of theme park geekitude on its front page. As a former newspaper reporter, it's refreshing to me to see a paper trying to throw some fun into the mix on a weekend like this.
