The big difference is the scale. Disneyland (in California) was the first theme park Walt Disney built. Originally consisting of one theme park and one hotel, though after Walt's death it was expanded into a resort with a second theme park, more hotels and some other attractions. Disney world (in Florida) was a much bigger project, this time Walt Disney ...

Those are both official Disney sites, but the tickets are for two different Disney Resorts, Disneyland, which is located in Anaheim, California, and Disney World, which is located in Orlando, Florida. There are many options for tickets in both complexes, but typically tickets either allow access to one park per day (the cheaper option), or are "park-hopper" ...

Those are two different official Disney sites and are for purchasing tickets for two very different parks: Disneyland is in Anaheim, California and opened in 1955. Walt Disney World is in Orlando, Florida and opened in 1971.

The difference is that Disneyland is in California and Disney World is in Florida. Please see Disneyland and Disney World I suppose the idea was that they would not be confused.

No. Not if you're the least bit serious about it (sure, you can run through). I did Euro Disneyland shortly after it was opened (there was only one park at that time, and it was about half the size) when it was mostly devoid of visitors and the parking lot looked like the backside of the moon. It was a rainy, cold day, there were maybe three dozen people ...

I couldn't find the information on the official website, however I found a blog post specifying all the rules on the dining plans. Specifically it says on dining plans: Can I get the Dining Plan for more or fewer days than my hotel stay? No. The Dining Plan can only be arranged for the exact number of NIGHTS of your hotel package. The only way ...

It depends very much on your attitude and how thorough you need to be. Yes, you can decently cover both parks on lower crowd days provided you're willing to forgo some attractions if necessary. Be sure to get familiar with the FastPass system. If you stay at a Disney hotel, you get Extra Magic Hours where they let hotel guests in ~2 hours before regular ...

DISCLAIMER: Read OP carefully. Also, SE does not require every answer to be all-inclusive. Reading your question carefully, I’m not sure you’re asking about the easy stuff like location, scale or features. You seem to be asking a lot about the etymology: the word crafting.* Historically there are reasons** many country/state names end in “land”: Ireland, ...

According to Wikipedia, the Reedy Creek Improvement District provides water for WDW, and they do not add fluoride, but there is roughly 0.10 ppm of fluoride found in the water. There are also reports that the water at WDW tastes horrible, so you may want to consider bottled water aside from the issue of fluoride. As a general rule, when traveling, if you ...

You might be out of the period when you can request a chargeback, but you can still contact your credit card provider and require them to honour their obligations under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act if the cost was more than £100, as there is no time limit on that.

Metro Los Angeles runs bus service to Disneyland in Anaheim from downtown Los Angeles. You can take Bus 460 from 5th/Grand to Disneyland. For detailed schedule and stops, you can refer to the timetable for 460.

From what I saw the prices are not all that different. At Orlando $97, CA $85. Keep in mind that Orlando has four different (main) parks: Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, and Epcot. There are also water parks on site that also have separate entrance fees. Entrance into each varies in prices so the $97 is just an estimate. Passes that ...

I have found this post about it. It is in French but I'll translate the general idea behind it : http://www.disneylandparis.fr/faq/restaurants/alimentation-boissons-exterieur/ So it isn't allowed to bring with you large bags full of food to organize a group picnic inside the park. They don't explicitly say that it is allowed to bring some water or ...

Vacationeer Travels on BBB includes Business started: 08/17/2011 in UT and No complaints filed with BBB. Dean Gibbons on LinkedIn. Seven 5* and one 4* (no other) reviews on yelp. Trip Advisor includes: We have used park savers twice now, once in 2014 and again in 2015 we had no problems either time. I would not hesitate to use them again on our next trip ...

You can't nearly cover all the good rides in 1 park (for anyone on any given day) in 2 days, so doing all of that in 1 day, would be a stretch. However, it does depend on your attitude, and what you're trying to get out of the experience. You will get phenomenal Disney thrills within 1 day and 2 parks, but of course, be prepared to give up a few solid ...

So can I buy the dining plan for 15 days and use it across 20 days? No. The Disney Dining Plan is a lengh-of-stay option so unless you split your reservation, on or off property, you will get 20 night of credits. But, it's still pretty easy to use them. If you have breakfast at your resort every day, that's half the credits right there. Or use a Snack ...

Disneyland Resort in Anaheim contains two theme parks (they're located next to each other on the same property): Disneyland Park and California Adventure, plus a couple of hotels and an unticketed shopping area called Downtown Disney. Disneyland Park is the classic, iconic Disneyland, while California Adventure is a newer California-themed area. When you ...

I've found out that the WDW water provider is Reedy Creek Improvement District and it doesn't seem to fluoridate but there is roughly 0.10 ppm of naturally occurring/residual fluoride in the water. Thanks to all that tried to help.

Speaking as someone who has purchased tickets from that site, they are genuine. You print out your own and then present them on the gate where the QR code will get scanned. My only advice would be to order them about a week before you need them. Their customer support team was very responsive to queries, but we felt like we were cutting it fine only ...

Assuming you are referring to these shuttles http://www.mtr.com.hk/en/customer/services/complom_free_bus.html the answer is probably yes. I use them frequently and there is no kind of ticket or access control that I'm aware off. You just hop on at the hotel (or the station) and get off wherever you want. You don't need any MTR ticket or any sort of proof ...

Hong Kong Disneyland has the FASTPASS system, though only at three attractions. You can obtain a pass, then come back at the specified time and enter through a special queue for a "minimal wait in line." There is no additional charge for this. There is the option of a VIP "Disney Spectacular Tour." This is quite expensive indeed: HKD$5,688 for three hours ...

The Réseau Express Régional (RER) commuter express rail network (Line A) stops within walking distance of the park. Board the RER in Paris at Charles-de-Gaulle–Étoile, Châtelet–Les Halles, Nation or any other stop. Get off at Line A’s last stop, Marne-la-Vallée–Chessy, 45 minutes from central Paris. Make sure you take the right branch (Eurodisney is ...

Yes you can buy in advance. And if I were you, I would book in advance. The waiting queue can be sometime annoying there. And as you'll encounter waiting queues at the rides in most of the cases, if you can avoid one at the ticket counter, this is already good time saved :) You can also buy tickets directly tickets but the price won't be discounted. You can ...

FASTPASS and Disneyland Paris works the same way as Disneyland. There are FASTPASS Distribution machines near the entrance to FP attractions. You insert your park pass to obtain the FP 'ticket'. Discounts are not in any way part of FPs at any Disney park. :( No, not generally. There are various super FP that are given to VIP's or as compensation for guest ...

You most defiantly can! BUT it depends on the time of year (We went mid September) and on what you are willing to miss. I went with my partner, we got there an hour before opening and as soon as the gates opened we immediately ran to the most popular ride at the time (Finding Nemo) which meant we got on it straight away. After that we got on every other ...

You'll miss out on some stuff, and the overall experience, but it can be done. It's harder on a first visit because you won't have time to get your bearings. A few more suggestions to speed through the parks: Don't eat at peak times. We term this a two-lunch strategy, having something at about 11 and again at 3. Just when the queues for food get long, ...

Simply going by the number of attractions (rides, shows, etc...), Disneyland has 54 while California Adventure has 34. These range from fast roller coasters to train rides. However, there is no way you're going to be able to do everything, or even get close, in one day. I'd recommend that you review the list of attractions and decide what interests you ...
