    Hello Everyone on MP! First trip to WDW and staying at AK. Been to DL almost 30 times. Wondering if MK is any different than DL other than some of the missing rides (Indiana Jones, etc)? Is it wise to leave MK last since it seems very much the same as DL?

    I'm a born and raised California girl, Reva, and I, too, have spent countless days and nights at Disneyland.  Once you step foot the Magic Kingdom, you'll feel oddly at home, as though someone came in while you were out and rearranged the furniture.  That said, there are plenty of differences between the two parks and I think it'll be fun for you to discover them for yourself.  Additionally, you'll notice that Disney's Hollywood Studios shares some attractions in common with California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort.  Still, I wouldn't discount that park, either, as you'll find plenty of new experiences to be had.  If it were my itinerary to plan, I'd feel safe in allotting each theme park significant touring time.  I think you'll be glad you did!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
