    i'm going to disney world with my 7 year old this spring break. i live in California and have season passes to Disneyland so i visit regularly. When i use the virtual map are the rides the same in disney world as in disneyland? like toy story mania

    Hi Irene!

    Most of the rides with the same name are similar between Walt Disney World and Disneyland, but not exactly the same.  For example, the following attractions that exist in both locations are better in Disneyland in my opinion:
    • Space Mountain
    • Pirates of the Caribbean
    • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin
    • Autopia
    • it's a small world

    The following attractions are better in Walt Disney World

    • Haunted Mansion
    • Tower of Terror

    Toy Story Midway Mania in Disney's Hollywood Studios is basically the same as it is in Disney's California Adventure, though the queue is different.  That's also true for Soarin' in Epcot.

    I would definitely concentrate on those attractions that only exist at Walt Disney World.  However, I do recommend doing Tower of Terror in Disney's Hollywood Studios; it has a more complete story in Florida than out in California.  I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
