Disneyland – Different But the Same


This week I have had the honor of attending a special conference for Disney agencies at Disneyland in California. One of the natural things that we all do is to compare. Of course, we compare Walt Disney World to Disneyland. It’s different, but the same. How is that for wishy washy?

Many of the rides have a sense a familiarity about them. Pirates of the Caribbean. Tower of Terror. Small World….and the list goes one. But things are different on these rides.. Pirates was longer, started in the front of the building, rather than going deep into the cavern. Tower of Terror totally threw me – no ride out into the window, the drops started right away! Small World was longer and some of the scenes had more embellishments. Different but the same.

Personally, I am in really enjoying Disneyland. One of the reasons is the size. You can walk everywhere. No busses needed. The first two nights we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. It had a cool 60’s Vegas like vibe to it. The Walt touches were everywhere. But here is what blew my mind….you leave your room at Frontier Tower, walk to Downtown Disney and you are in the park in less than 10 minutes! WOW. Oh, it gets even better. Now, we moved to the Grand Californian Resort and it is literally in California Adventure Park! From the time we left the lobby to the time we scanned our cards into the park, it was under 3 minutes!  All this gives us more time to explore the parks and enjoy our time here. I have read about this, but quite frankly didn’t really sink in until I experienced it. Totally cool!

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
