    Hello. Which is the most recomended park gong with a girl of 3 years 8 months. Disney from LA or Orlando? Thanks

    Hi Claudia!

    I think you really can't go wrong either way.  Both Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California are wonderful.  Thus you might want to base the decision on airfare from your home to one of the Disney parks.  That said, however, I personally think Disneyland is better for a young child.  That's really because Disneyland is significantly smaller than Walt Disney World.  You can walk from your hotel if you are staying on property to Downtown Disney, Disneyland Park, and Disney California Adventure.  You can easily walk back and forth between the two theme parks.  Disneyland Park is also more intimate in my opinion than the Magic Kingdom.  Walt Disney World in Florida is huge and getting around can be time consuming; Walt Disney World is my favorite resort, because it is huge and offers so much more, especially for adults and older children, ut Disneyland Park is my favorite single park in the United States.

    It is a hard decision.  Good luck and please write back if you have any more questions!
