So, as a Florida resident who has visited the Orlando Disney resort on countless occassions, I've always been curious to plan a trip to the Disneyland resort in California to see "the park that Walt built". A few questions always spring to mind when I daydream about this potential trip...
1. What rides that are in both Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in California are considered different enough experiences that they would be a must do in Disneyland, even if I've already ridden their counterpart in Orlando. I know Pirates of the Caribbean is the obvious one, but what others? For example, is Splash Mountain in Disneyland THAT much different from the Florida version that on a tight schedule I'd want to ride it to compare the two?
2. What airport should I fly into? Assuming avoiding LAX is a good idea. I would think if you were just going to visit Disneyland, you could fly to a nearby airport, take a cab to the resort and not have to drive anywhere. Thoughts?
3. Which hotel to stay in? On site or offsite? And is it really that much of a difference in California since the actual area is really not as huge as the Orlando parks.
4. How many days? Could you do it all (Disneyland and California Adventure) in 2-3 days? Or would it be better to have four. Again, this would assume I'm making my one and only trip to Disneyland California to check it off my bucket list, so obviously I'd want to take it all in and experience as much as I can.
5. Aside from attractions, what are some of the spots that really speak to Walt Disney the man...sort of the spots you can stand and reflect and know that Walt had his hands on this particular area/attraction/building,etc...
Those are the main questions that spring to mind...this would be a dream trip for me, howevever it's probably not in the near future.Tweet
