    A new passion for Disneyland

    Earlier this month I had the great privilege to travel to Orange county CA and stayed about 14 min from DL. Needless to say I went to DL and DCA for a few days. I wasn't even to the gate yet when I started crying, I couldn't believe that I was going to be in Disneyland in a second! Walt's dream come true! It was my dream come true to be able to go! I got in and everything was on a small scale but I didn't care, it was BEAUTIFUL!!! I could have just cried and cried tears of joy! I spent 3 wonderful days going to Disneyland and DCA. I can't wait to go back! I started my first DL visit with a wave from a conductor pulling into the train station and ended my final visit with a wave from a conductor pulling into the train station with the same train! It was a perfect way to end my trip. I can't wait to be able to get back!

    I really enjoyed reading your trip report, and you sounded like you had a great time!!! I hope someday i'll be able to visit DLR! I just hope Disney's California Adventure is Ok.... I don't like some of the stuff they're doing to it... Lucky got to see the letters!!!

    Re: A new passion for Disneyland

    I would love to visit DL someday, for now I get my fix by reading DL trip reports and listening to DL podcasts and watching The Big D podcast. It has some great DL/CA videos. I love watching the videos of the rides I have never seen like Alice in Wonderland, Indy Jones, they have a Monsters Inc ride and some train, it was so cute. Glad you had a good time. Welcome back
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    Re: A new passion for Disneyland

    Disneyland will always be better in my mind even though I am lucky enough to be at WDW daily. I'm not sick of WDW, but at Disneyland you have the "walt walked here" kinda mentality where it's a lot more special than Disney World. Yes it's smaller, but you see the little pieces and much more of the magic!

    Re: A new passion for Disneyland

    As a Disney fan, I have to get to DL at least once in my life. I can understand the "Walt walked here" mentality. It must be a different kind of feeling walking down Main St. USA knowing Walt envisioned and supervised it.

    Even though Disneyland is smaller, I think it's a great park and it has it's charm. Also, it's so easy to go back and forth between DL and DCA. We just went for spring break and had a blast, we will definitely go back someday.
