  • What to do???

    Hello everyone! I need help!!!! :confused: What to do about the 50th celebration at DL. I have reservations to be there on July 17th to witness the big day. But now I am torn between that and WDW. You see, we went to Florida in August/Sept for WDW and the Disney Cruise but all plans were messed up because of the hurricane. My best friend lives in Orlando so the cost is the same to us. My 19 yr old stepdaughter (now living with us) has never been to Florida. Any suggestions from anyone??? I'm affraid to go to Florida in case they do something with the draw bridge on the 17th. That's why I booked it, amongst other reasons. What would you do???


    Thanks so much to eveyone that has responded. I pretty much new my decision but I want to make everyone happy. I'm a Disney A-holic!! we go to DL about 6 times a year and WDW at least once. I too want to be there just to say I was there. I already know it will be packed! But I don't care. I recently was told about this website and find it very interesting to read through. Take care and thanks again for all the comments !

      Disneyland will only have one 50th celebration and WDW isnt going any where so i say go to DL and catch the Celebration on the 17th.

        I think it depends on how well you know both parks. There's an incredible amount of theming, riding, and seeing in WDW that doesn't exist at DLR. If you haven't seen it before, then you really should consider Florida. On the other hand, if you've already seen the World, so to speak, you might as well save yourself from long travel and go to DLR.

        There is such a thing as too much trivial Disney knowledge, and I think planning your vacation on the possibility of a drawbridge going up and down really isn't worth it, no matter how rarely it happens. I'd certainly not want to miss out on all the stuff in WDW for it.

        edited to add: Unelss it's a suprise trip, talk to your stepdaughter as well if you haven't. She may be averse to the long trip to Florida or she may prefer it because she hasn't seen it before. DL on a weekend is going to be cramped and filled with strollers and kidlets, especially on The Big Weekend. Florida might be more relaxed.

            Well, WDW has an anniversary coming up too. Why don't you wait until they've completed Everest? I figure it's Disneyland's 50th and that only happens once. That's where you'll find me anyways.

                I go to WDW every year but haven't been back to DL in 5 years. I used to go to DL at least 4-5 times a year but the park got so run down and the cms seemed to loose there magic (no offense to anyone I wouldn't have been happy working there back then either). There were no new E-tickets are even lesser attractions to get excited about so I just stopped going. But now it looks like DL will look brand new for it's 50th and I'm really excited about going back. WDW will always be there but DL means so much to me that I want to able I want to be there on july 17th just so I can say I was there.

                      Disneyland for sure.

                      We are planning on coming to DL for the 17th from Canada. We have visited the parks when they have been crowded but can any share what they did on past July 17ths. I expect DL to be PACKED! and I am not sure what normally happens every year, let alone for this special event?

                              If you really have no problems with the possibility of crowds... go for it!

                              This is interesting, though... and it's something I hadn't even thought of... we're planning our (first!) trip to DL in July... I wasn't even thinking how it would be very close to the actual anniversary... Do you think it's a good idea for our very first DL experience to be on what could possibly be the most crowded time for DL EVER?!

                                I've been in the parks when they were maxxed out capacity-wise, but even then it's still fun. Oh, and I voted for DL.

                                  Disneyland for sure!!! Disneyland will only have one 50th birthday and this will be a first time for everyone to see how we celebrate. WDW isnt going anywhere and you could always go there next time. but go to DL and experience how Disney celebrates its 50th birthday. just go to DL!!! plus you wouldnt want to be in florida around that time cuz it will be really hot and humid and cali weather will be much better.
