Disneyland vs. Disney World – A Comparison of These Two Spectacular Resorts

star wars

1. The Entertainment Each resort offers worlds of entertainment, from musicals to illuminations. And while you’ll only find the night-time show Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular at Disney World, the equally-out-of-this-world Star Wars VR experience can be found at both Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District and Disney World’s Disney Springs. These resorts aren’t as far, far away from each other as you might ...

Gaston

2. The Characters A bigger resort means a bigger variety of characters. At Disney World, meet Gaston (you won’t miss him – he’s roughly the size of a barge), The Muppets, characters from Inside Out and more across all the parks. But don’t be filled with sadness that Disneyland doesn’t have as many – be filled with joy that the Adventure Park is ...

3. The Food Disney World has way more mouths to feed than Disneyland (and that includes the inhabitants of its Animal Kingdom)! But then you can’t beat the delicious grub at Disneyland, from New Orleans Square’s authentic and inspired dishes to local California cuisine at Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure Park. Either way, neither resort will see you turn into ...

Happily Ever After

10. The Size It’s no mystery that Disney World is much bigger than Disneyland. In fact, it’s enormous. Perhaps the biggest clue is that it hosts twice as many parks as the California resort does. But even more mind-blowing is that it’s about as big as San Francisco, and twice the size of Manhattan! So you definitely can’t get away with calling it ...

Hollywood Studios

9. The Lands Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are the equivalents to California’s Disneyland Park and Adventure Park. You’ll find all the familiar lands at Magic Kingdom except for New Orleans Square, Critter Country and Mickey’s Toontown. For Disney’s Hollywood Studios, 2018 will see the arrival of Toy Story Land, but its California-counterpart will also soon host Pixar Pier, so ...

Animal Kingdom Sign

8. The Parks Disney World isn’t just home to Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios – it’s where you’ll also find Epcot and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. This isn’t to say Disneyland is any less magical, but facts are facts. And while Disney World is bigger, at least your Disneyland bucket list won’t go to infinity and beyond and take ...

Water slide

7. The Water Parks It’s not just under the sea where wetter is better, as Disney World has its own water parks, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. That said, Disneyland is of course located in California, with the gorgeous Southern California beaches not too far away. And the resort’s hotels even have water slides ...

Peter Pan's Flight

6. The Rides You’ll find many classic Disneyland rides at Disney World, such as Peter Pan’s Flight and Star Tours. But while each resort also boasts attractions that the other doesn’t, those which are seemingly-identical differ in some way too, even by name, like Disney World’s Toy Story Mania and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. You could say each resort ...

AVATAR at Animal Kingdom

5. The Wildlife Disney’s Animal Kingdom doesn’t just feature animals from our planet, it’s also home to otherworldly ecosystem The World of Avatar, where you can take to Pandora’s skies on Avatar Flight of Passage and explore its rainforests on the Na’vi River Journey. Sadly, Disneyland doesn’t sport such attractions, but remember that the Florida heat is better-suited to wildlife ...

disney world _ disneyland _ differences between

It’s fair to say that no two Disney resorts are the same. There are of course countless similarities, particularly between the California and Orlando resorts, Disneyland and Disney World, but these two are also so astronomically different to one another that they may as well be light years apart. So here are ten comparisons of the happiest place on earth and ...
