Yeah...what @flynnibus said. Silly weekend got in the way...By castle walkthrough they meant the sleeping beauty attraction that is a walk through set of diaramas. It’s a dl classic that went away after 9/11 but was restored and brought back a few years ago. You have to kinda know about it because the entrance is pretty low key on the back of the castle.
On the monorails... you don’t really notice it from outside... but the dl ones are significantly smaller on the inside. That in part is why there is no standing... there simply isn’t the headroom in the curved roof compared to the wdw design . The open floor design of the wdw monorails is a modern reversion of the design which made them more stroller and ecv friendly (it took out a bench)
Enjoyable TR as always!
I feel just a little more prepared for our first trip coming up in June, so thanks for that
We're doing a mini Griswold road trip from Grand Canyon to Disneyland aka "Wally World"
Just no Aunt Edna
Awesome TR! Makes me want to go back to DLR and The GC. I did the Storybook Canal ride for the sole purpose of looking for the Disney Cats ! Not sure my DH will go as we moved to Florida in June from Mass to be closer to WDW and the cruise port. Maybe we will catch up with you in May for DVC MM.Happy New Year @lostpro9het and @imahistorygeek
Thank you very much for the great trip report, loved following along. Enjoy WDW for New Years Eve!
Great report. Have a great time in WDW!
Great TR! Thanks so much!
Ha! I laughed so loud at this.
Thank you all, I appreciate it!Having grown up with DL, it was really fun to read your take from a first timer perspective. Thanks for the great trip report. I really enjoyed reading it!
Thank you, ma’am, Happy New Year to you too!What a fun TR @lostpro9het and @imahistorygeek .
I've never been to DL, so I enjoyed reading your insights and particularly appreciated all the various photos. It was kinda like a travelogue, and it held my interest.
So glad your family had a wonderful experience out there in CA, and thank you for sharing it here with your fellow WDWMagic members. Oh, Happy New Year to you, by the way!
Thank you, sir! DL will happen for ya. You’re too big a fan not to.Just wanted to say that I greatly enjoyed your TR! I’m sure it was such an awesome experience to visit the original and know that Walt used to walk all around the park. Also enjoyed your DL vs. WDW comparisons and opinions on which place did better at certain things and attractions. Hopefully someday I’ll get to “the Land”.
Btw, Happy New Year to you and the family! Hope y’all are surviving those hellacious crowds.
