    Amanda F- I am thinking about visiting DL for the Tinkerbell Half in '15, but being a WDW veteran I am not sure where to begin. Does DL have special offers and MYW like WDW? Is the atmosphere so different that I will be disappointed? Thanks!

    Hi there Kim,

    I first fell in love with Walt Disney World, as I grew up on the East Coast.  In recent years, I moved to the West Coast and totally fell in love with Disneyland right away!  Yes, it is smaller and more compact, but the attention to small details is great and it is so convenient to bounce around between the parks, hotels, and Downtown Disney, which makes it super easy to really maximize your time at the resort!  I almost forgot to mention the fact that this is Walt DIsney's original baby!  When I step foot on Main Street USA in Disneyland Park, I am always sure to glance over at Walt's apartment over the Fire Hall and pay a little memory to the man who created all of this magic!  There's something really special about that!

    Plus, The Happiest Place on Earth just got Happier with the expansion of California Adventure last year and many other magical enhancements over in Disneyland Park!  Cars Land is a one of a kind attraction that you can't find anywhere else, and well worth the trip itself!  Disneyland lends itself to a more relaxed vibe and I really think you'll enjoy it!

    Disneyland does of vacation packages similar to the Magic Your Way Packages at Walt Disney World!  To take advantage of these special promotions and deals, check out the Disneyland Special Offers website to get started!

    I am here if you have additional questions, so just feel free to send me anything you think of
