    Hi Maritza,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World? As a long-time Disney fan, I hear that question a lot. I love hearing that your conundrum is choosing between those two destinations. Either way, you'll enjoy the Disney difference. Personally, I love both Disneyland Resort AND Walt Disney World, and the lists of reasons I love each of them are long yet varied. I've really enjoyed vacationing at both Disney destinations in the January/February time of year. I'd generally say that the weather-wise comparison is comparable and ranges from "shorts and T-shirt" weather to "need a light jacket" weather to "downright chilly" weather. Of course, weather being unpredictable as it is, there are times when I have visited Walt Disney World and wished I had packed a warmer coat. If you were seeking to compare the two locales in say, August, it'd be a different story and less comparable.

    Personally, the question I'd encourage you to ask is not how the weather differs, but how the experience differs. For me, Disneyland Resort feels like a more intimate and everything-is-nearby experience where I can walk to each theme park, restaurant, and entertainment venue. I love its history, originality, and closeness. Walt Disney World, for me, feels like a more expansive and everywhere-is-a-wonder experience where I can spend days in each theme park and also explore the water parks, Disney Springs, Disney's BoardWalk, and the Resorts.

    As for travel packages for each destination, I can encourage you to check out the Offers & Discounts at Disneyland Resort and the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts at Walt Disney World.

    Maritza, once you choose your destination, please do come back with questions so we can help with more planning!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
