VekomaRulz Posted June 3, 2017 Share Posted June 3, 2017 I prefer Disney Land over Disney World. There are only 2 parks but those 2 parks have more rides combined than the 4 parks at Disney World and there are a lot of great rides that are either no longer at Disney World or were never at Disney World. Most of the time, when both parks have the same rides, I found the Disney Land version of the ride to be much better such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain. Disney Land also has a night parade and fireworks viewing is much better with the projections not just on the castle but also on the Matterhorn and It's A Small World compared to everyone crowding in front of the castle in Disney World. I agree the on site hotels at Disney Land are expensive, we stayed at a Residence Inn a couple of miles from the parks for around $130 a night last year. We were considering staying 1 night at the Disney Land hotel but at around $500, that wasn't happening. I also like the old style Fast Pass system at Disney Land better. It's nice not having to plan 30 or 60 days ahead where I am going to be at the park to ride in the Fast Pass window and having to book dining reservations at Disney World 180 days out for the more popular restaurants can be annoying. Also there is no tier for Fast Pass at Disney Land. It's frustrating that at a park like Hollywood Studios with only 5 rides, you can only get 1 Fast Pass for either Rock N Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania and The Great Movie ride or only 1 of the 2 rides in Pandora at Animal Kingdom. Not everything on Fast Pass also helps lines move much faster at Disney Land. Using Pirates as an example, at Disney World, the line can be 30 - 45 minutes because Fast Pass now takes so much of the available rides. At Disney Land there was a long line that never stopped moving and it took less than 10 minutes. Even less popular rides like Journey Into Imagination can now get 25 - 40 minute waits in the middle of the day when before they were on Fast Pass, they were usually walk ons on all but the busiest days. At Disney Land, with the less popular rides standby only, they still get shorter waits compared to the same rides at Disney World. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
