    Disneyland for a WDW Traveler

    Hello all,

    So I have been to Walt Disney World 24 times in my 19 years of life.... I am taking my first trip to Disneyland in July.

    So what tips would you give a seasoned WDW traveler for his first trip to Disneyland?

    It's Disneyland, not Disney World. Treat it differently.

    For me, the first time I visited Disneyland was made a special point of doing all the attractions that are NOT at WDW. It was a thrill to finally ride Mr Toad, and New Orleans Square was fantastic. In addition, you HAVE to try out DL's versions of Pirates and Fantasmic - they are both (IMO) better than the WDW versions. And of course, make sure you check out World of Color - stunning!

    I really love Main Street USA in DL - the facades there are fantastic and especially love the Penny Arcade and hanging out at Coke Corner listening to the ragtime pianist.

    World of Color and Fantasmic are both worth catching for night time shows. Fantasmic is different than our DHS and I love the Peter Pan scene.

    Re: Disneyland for a WDW Traveler

    just because you think you've rode the ride a thousand times, it's not the same ride in disneyland, which includes pirates, jungle cruise, splash mt, small world and all the other rides wdw doesn't have. they are different enough to wait in line for, and because disneyland is a place we don't go as often, GO ON THE RIDE!
