    We live in California and have been to DL MK several times. We will be visiting DW FL with limitied time. Is it better to concentrate on the other disney parks like Hollywood as DW MK in FL seem very similar to DL MK in CA?

    It's really a matter of personal preference, but you are correct in that the Magic Kingdom is quite similar to Disneyland; you'll find that many of the attractions overlap.  That said, there are differences between the two parks, including attractions that are exclusive to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom (ie., The Hall of Presidents).  You might also be curious to experience some of the attractions the two parks have in common but have a different feel at the Magic Kingdom than they do at Disneyland (ie. The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean).  I grew up in California and spent a lot of time at Disneyland and I find it fun to compare the differences I notice between the two parks.

    Depending upon just how limited your visit is, you may decide your time is best spent exploring the parks that are unique to Walt Disney World, namely Epcot and Animal Kingdom.  While Disney's Hollywood Studios, too, is unique to WDW, many of its attractions have been duplicated at Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim.

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
