It would have been impossible not to compare, right?
Pirates of the Carribbean: Disneyland~we thought Disneyland was longer, better themed, and more charming.
Thunder Mountain: Disney World~maybe because it was a new experience?
Splash Mountain: Disney World~we thought the animation was a little better and we liked the seating.
Haunted Mansion: We liked the Disneyland attraction, but we preferred the Disney World queue.
Peter Pan: Disney World~the animation was nicer.
Space Mountain~Disneyland~we missed the music and the atmosphere of Space in California.
Tower of Terror: Disney World~there was more to the attraction than California Adventure.
Rapids at Animal Kingdom: Disneyland, or California Adventure~this really was no comparison. The attraction at Animal Kingdom was so short!
Midway Mania: Toss up!
Disney World Vs: Disneyland
We loved them both, but we have to say Disneyland. We liked that it was all in one place and that you were immersed in Disney from the moment you walked in the door. At Disney World, it was so spread apart that you could always tell you were in Florida, which broke the show a bit for me.
Favorite Parks at Disney World:
Momma J: World of Harry Potter, then Animal Kingdom
Big T: Animal Kingdom and Epcot
Little T: Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios

I’ve never been to Disney World, but I can’t imagine it being better than Disneyland. Afterall, I grew up at Disneyland and it will always have a special place in my heart. 🙂 I do hope to get a chance to compare the two one day though! 😉
While Thunder at DL is good, I think we agreed that Thunder at WDW was even better! But we liked Splash and ToT better at DL – the times we rode it (only once for Splash 3 years ago, and twice for ToT, so our memories are a little fuzzy), it felt like the drops felt more exciting on the west coast, and the horizontal movement on ToT that everyone loves felt like it was interrupting the anticipation of the drop for us. Kali River Rapids is definitely too short! But yes, no matter how much more there is to see and do and eat at WDW, Disneyland still has my heart!! <333 So fun! Loved following along on your trip!!
