    Default Disneyland or Disney world?

    Anyone been to both Disneyland and Disney World? We have been to Disneyland and are wanting to do a second trip but are unsure whether to do Disneyland again or make the extra trip for Disney World for a change? Any advice? Kids will be 8.5 and 2.5 years old at the time, looking at Dec/Jan next year.

    Having been to both and I would say Disneyland as there are a lot more options with other parks you can go to. Cape Canaveral is also not to far away if your kids are interested in space

    It also comes down to budget as you could very easily spend a lot more money going to the east coast VS the west coast.

    Accomodation wise renting a house rather then staying in a hotel is also a better option in Orlando

    My sister lives in the east coast in ny and took her dd to Disneyland in April and wishes they went to Disney world instead as a lot of people mainly from Aust don't want to travel that extra 5.5hrs on a ✈️ etc to get there.

    You'd also need to allow a few days to see the entire park as they are so massive along with the lines to the rides

    The fast track passes are huge in costs and the lines are just as long

    If you go. Off season is best

    Disney world is the better ( and bigger) park ( well it's technically now 5 parks in one!) plus as you have already been to Disneyland I'd do Orlando as you can also do universal studios as well ( which is also better than the one in LA)

    Definitely Disney World, Universal Pictures and Sea World are close by too.

    Thanks everyone. I'm surprised that disney world is proving so popular! I am keen to try it for a change but DH is worried about the extra flight time with a 2.5 year old. Which is fair enough. I have been thinking about a disney cruise too from there too. Just a short 4 night one.

    Also when we did Disneyland we split up a fair but eg DD and I did a ride while DH went in a single rider line on another. Sometimes at the two different parks. Is that too hard at disney world? Parks further apart? Too hard to go between the different parks on the same day?
