  • Found my first trip report.. Aww, I was so mean to DCA..

    I found this on another board that I posted when I had gotten back.

    August 30th, 2006

    I had the most amazing time! I thought it was amazing.. I have to say.. I was REALLY impressed with Disneyland. I was almost in awe the entire time. Every single ride, I would come out impressed with how much better it was than MK. The only exceptions I thought were Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (the Magic Kingdom version was much better) and Winnie the Pooh (Magic Kingdom's version is better).

    Also, I thought California Adventure was the SUCK. Maybe visiting it after Disneyland shows how much more flawed it is but really.. it's just pointless, unimaginative, and I felt awful for whoever paid money to enter its gates before the addition of Tower of Terror, Aladdin, Monsters Inc, etc. It deserved all the criticism it received. It was a bad idea (a California-themed "Disney" park made on the cheap in California) and made with worse execution.

    Still, I absolutely loved the Disneyland Resort. I loved the proximity of the two parks and Downtown Disney. We are all WDW veterans and we all felt everything at Disneyland just seemed newer. My friend said it seemed like a new park. It honestly makes me not want to go back to WDW. Unfortunately, in Miami, FL, thats only a few hours drive. Disneyland was about a 7-hour flight.

    Still, I want a t-shirt that says "Everything is better at Disneyland".


    I have to say reading back.. and after visiting again in December.. I definitely feel I was really harsh on DCA. It does have some charm to it and I guess I definitely had my expectations in line when I visited it again. It's like.. Disneyland's retarded little brother.
