Disneyland is SO different from Disney World, that there are few things I NEVER miss. READ on about my favorite things at Disneyland.
Hey guys, I am in FULL ON PACKING mode and getting excited for our upcoming family adventure to DISNEYLAND. I get alot of people who say, well I never plan to go there…so not gonna bother reading your posts or watching your videos about it. But I am here to tell you, WHY? Why not swing over to the original? Its an amazing vacation, you can get more done in a shorter time and price is usually about the same or less. Learn about what makes Disneyland unique and my FAVORITE park to visit.
I post about this often, or at least I feel like I do…its because we LOVE it and there is NOTHING like it at Disney World. The entire land is SO immersive and bright and amazing. There is 3 awesome rides with 1 being the TOP ride for Disney’s California Adventure Park. I mean who wouldn’t want to Race with Lightning McQueen or stroll down Route 66 into Radiator Springs. AND who won’t want to walk past Tow Mater as he is strolling to his next meet & greet. And don’t get me started about how it looks at night, OMG!
Again, another AMAZINGLY creative area that has nothing on Disney World. Its the Incredibles, Inside Out, Toy Story and more ALL wrapped into 1 area. There is a coaster, a carousal, fun fair games, NEW rides and everyone’s favorite – Toy Story Mania. But its the view that you get from Mickey’s Fun Wheel, now known as the Pixar Pal-A-Round is breathtaking. Nothing like putting all your favorite Pixar characters in 1 spot.
No, I am not talking about the stage show that is at Hollywood Studios. This is an actual ride. A very crazy, bouncing and intense ride that puts you in the middle of the action. Explore with Indy and watch out for snakes and arrows and gun shuts. Ride a Jeep like vehicle that has 3 different tracks…you just never know what adventure you will be on. NOTE: Keep those kiddies on the inside as mine always feel like they are gonna fall out. Same with your personal belonging, strap those down securely.
So yes, Disney World has Fantasyland, but Disneyland has the original rides which WDW doesn’t have. Rides that bring back my childhood memories. Gotta love Snow White’s Scary Adventure or Mr’s Toads Wild Ride. The original Dumbo. The view from Dumbo is amazing, love shooting up as high as it can go and just enjoying the scenery. Disneyland also has Mickey’s ToonTown and the Nemo Submarine Ride.
Last but not least is the FOOD. Since Disneyland is in California, the food there is completely different. Different flavors, styles and very fresh. They have continued to grow their healthy vibe with lots of Vegan options. And with Downtown Disney being a walk away, you can enjoy all the tastes and offerings from up-in-coming HIT restaurants. No need to get tired of park food at Disneyland, so many choices…so little time. I especially love the Mexican themed restaurant in Disneyland, its a family favorite and we go every trip. We can’t get enough of our Rice & Beans 🙂
This is just a taste of what I love about Disneyland, but I tried to keep it different from Disney World. Do you love Disneyland? Whats your favorite parts?
