Disneyworld or Disneyland? - Need advice please

Wednesday, February 19, 2003 8:03 AM
Hey all,
after several weeks in "no-CoasterBuzz hell" due to my ancient work versions of IE and Netscape, I am back where I belong duing my lunch hour.

I wanted to ask some advice from all of you on some trip plans I'm mulling over..... We're trying to decide on whether to head to SoCal or Florida.

Participants:
Me = Coaster nut extraordinaire
Wife = Likes coasters, just not obsessed like me
Daughter = 3 yrs old, has been on one small kiddie coaster and loved it
Son = 1 year old

Requirements:
Disneyland or Disneyworld. My daughter is a Disney Princess fanatic, so the Magic Kingdom is a must. Is there much of a difference between the two (SoCal vs. FL)?

Possibilities:
I'd like to satisfy my coaster jones, so I think I can talk the missus into IOA if we go the FL route, or to KBF if in SoCal. I already tried the SFMM angle to get on X, but the distance, time, etc. shot that down

So my questions are which way would you go and why?

Later,
EV

Sorry, Moosh!

Instead of just hitting "ENTER", I accidentally hit TAB and "ENTER" after my first line, which was just "Hey all". Please read the edit.

No worries, EV. I thought it was odd that your post was blank.

One thing you forgot: How many days is the trip?

Excluding travel (flying) days (one there, one back), we're looking at a three or four day window

Well, since you only have 3-4 days I would say Disneyland since theres a lot more to do at Disneyworld and you should save Disneyworld for a much longer vacation. The only bad side of going to Disneyland is that the river might be closed and so you'll see a large long wall in the park. It's a good thing though that the Matterhorn has finally opened.

I'd suggest a 2-3 day stay at the Disney Resort in Anaheim, with a 1-day side trip to Knotts and Adventure City.

Go to Tokyo Disney Resort. Their Magic Kingdom blows away both American ones, and Disney Sea is 1000 times better than any other non-Kingdom Disney park! Seriously, look into it! :)

Peabody,
while it is one of my goals to visit Japan sometime in my life, that amount of coin to visit Disney just isn't gonna happen. Especially not when I can go from Chicago to Orlando or L.A. for 79 bucks each way on Southwest!

LMAO Jeff. I was tempted to post in reply "Disneyland has more food that tastes better."

Gotta love that he used Microsoft Works to create the "press release"...I can't even read it in Word. Yep, that's the way to get investors!

(/eyes roll out of my skull, onto the desk then fall to the floor)

Also, having a post rating the favorite part of the female anatomy is also quite the way to impress investors, too ( http://scoasters.hyperboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&num=1045188266 )

Come on, there could be "companys" (sic) that might! (Yeah, the "press release" opened up on my machine as all "Y"s!)

Echovictor: Sorry to take this thread off topic, but it's just too humorous! The decision is a tough one...I'm not sure what I would do!

Come on Redman, are you high? ( ;) ;) ) Most charitable organizations have polls about genitals for all their potential clients/investors!

Peabody,

Well, I did have to take a toke or two to completely understand the grammar on the site.


The coaster preservation dividson of Super Coasters!

The rides will not open under 32 degress(for safely), instead, the park will ofter behind-the-scenes tour.

We are an club that is crazy about saving rollercoasters and other rides.

1. Theese forums are for use under the rules set by the host and Super Coasters!

Moosh, He IS serious. I applaud the enthusiasm....but, of course, when your 15 or 16 you know everything and you're always right (remember when it was like that?)....unfortunatly you then soon get smacked in the face with a big slab of reality.

My previous advice (in the thread he started about his "club") was to try volunteer with established, real preservation efforts, like the ACE one. There you could actually help make a difference, instead of wasting time on pipe dreams. Time that could be MUCH better spent studying for freshman English class!

EV: Have you been to IOA before? How bout Knotts, etc. That would influence my decision.
