Visiting the Theme Parks

I visited Disneyland several times while growing up, but after visiting Walt Disney World for the first time in August 1992, I became a true addict. My goal is to become a full-time professional WDW tourist.

If you've got 1 - 3 days go to Disneyland. If you've got 5 - 10 days go to Disney World. More time at Disneyland is boring. Less time at Disney World is frustrating. (I'm not sure there is an upper bound on the amount of time you can spend at Disney World.)

I have separate sections for each park:

Plus some stuff that applies to all parks:

Walt Disney World

General information aboutWalt Disney World can be found at:

Virtual Tours of Walt Disney World can be had:

Some WDW attractions have cool web sites:

Discover WDW Secrets! You can even get behind the scenes tours.

My favorite place at WDW is the Typhoon Lagoon water park.

You can read about other people's vacations at WDW: Stephen R. Banks


General information about Disneyland can be found at:

The Unofficial Disney's California Adventure Home Page

Some Disneyland attractions have cool web sites:

You can hear many of the familiar sounds of Disneyland.

Think you know the sights in Disneyland? Play The Disneyland Game and find out!

Billed as "The Happiest Potties on Earth", visit the Restrooms of Disneyland site.

In case you've never seen one, you can see an actual E ticket (and all the other tickets).

If you're hungry, you can cook up some popular Disneyland recipies.

Discover Disneyland Secrets! Does the infamous, exclusive Club 33 really exist? View a QuickTimeVR image or take an escorted tour (another one is here)! What does it take to become a member?.  More info is here.

For an amusing and atypical view of Disneyland, read Mouse Tales: A Behind-the-Ears Look at Disneyland by David Koenig, Irvine, CA: Bonaventure Press, 1994. ISBN 0-9640605-5-8. This describes behind-the-scenes stories that are amusing and/or shocking.

Old (and gone) Disneyland attractions can be viewed by visiting Yesterland or subscribing to The "E" Ticket magazine (the definitive Disneyland history publication). Another magazine of interest would be Persistence of Vision.
