Top 10 Reasons Why Disneyland is Better Than Disney WorldDisneyland was the Disney park Walt Disney and his team built, and it’s a historical landmark.
It was what Walt Disney envisioned, and made into a magical place for all. But this list will show you why this goes with one of those things where bigger isn’t always better.
The Top Ten
It’s the place Walt Disney and his team built in 1954 and was completed on 1955, and it’s original and a historic landmark.
He and his team built rides there that everybody would enjoy.
Although Disneyland had a horrible opening that nearly killed people, it was the 1st park to open.
Yet the castle is small, it was due to having a rather low budget for a bigger castle (which takes place at Walt Disney World).
It was what Walt Disney envisioned his land to be, and it became important for the world. - Gregory
Many rides and attractions at Disneyland are better than the ones at Disney World.
Pirates of the Caribbean has a better storyline, as well as a better atmosphere and 2 big drops.
Peter Pan’s Flight has better music and is more up to date.
Autopia has better theming, Tomorrowland Speedway is garbage.
It’s a Small World is quieter, so less likely to get stuck in your head.
Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters has better guns, meaning better shooting.
The Haunted Mansion is better because it’s original, has the changing portraits, and the holiday overlay every Halloween and Christmas, making it more spooky, atmospheric and festive.
Grizzly River Run has a vivid theme as well as more spinning and 2 medium drops.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is more immersive and has the dynamite effect at the 3rd lift hill and a cave during the last few drops.
Space Mountain is much more atmospheric, up to date, has better vehicles, double seating, the track is much ...more - Gregory
Ya know that they are probably using cooler In a different meaning
No. It's HOTTER at Disneyland. At least it rains in Florida. I got a HORRIBLE heat rash due to it. It rained when I went to WDW and it helps with heat relief a lot.
It’s not as hot there, so a trip there is easier, while Disney World is in Florida, so it’s blistering there. - Gregory
No, Disneyland is hotter
It’s not only cooler at Disneyland, but also less humid, so it won’t feel all yucky there like at Disney World. - Gregory
Disneyland always gives their rides seasonal overlays, Haunted Mansion Holiday, It's a Small World Christmas, Splash Mountain Holidays, Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark.
They're always up to date while Disney World leaves their rides to rot. - Gregory
The events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas are better and more magical at Disneyland than at Disney World.
Also, there’s more great and better themed food at Disneyland’s than at Disney World’s. - Gregory
Disneyland is NOT cheap. It's very expensive. Everything is overpriced. Admission is $100. A corndog and chips is $8. Starbucks s $5.
At Disneyland, tickets are cheaper than at Disney World.
Although items like a pizza slice will still cost $10, the overall ticket and event price and how much it cost to build is lower than DW. - Gregory
Disney World May have some cool nighttime shows, but they don’t match Disneyland’s.
There’s a better Fantasmic and stuff, and there’s World of Color.
Disney World’s firework shows aren’t that colorful like at Disneyland. - Gregory
Although Disney World and Disneyland both close good rides and attractions down, Disney World has more of them closed down.
At Disney World, they closed down Rocket to the Moon, Mission to Mars, the Skyway, Horizons, Sum of All Thrills, Sounds Dangerous, The Timekeeper, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, The ExtraTERRORetrial Alien Encounter, America Sings, Pleasure Island, Snow White’s Scary Adventures, Lights Motor Action, Maelstrom, Mickey’s Toontown Fair, The American Idol Experience, DisneyQuest, The Great Movie Ride, Ellen’s Energy Adventure, and they’re gonna close Cirque du Soleil: La Nouba on New Year’s Eve.
At Disneyland, they closed down the Rocket to the Moon, Mission to Mars, Videopolis, the Skyway, The PeopleMover, Rocket Rods, Flying Saucers, Carousel of Progress, Innoventions, America Sings, Toy Story Funhouse, Luigi’s Flying Tires, and Tower of Terror.
Disneyland is doing much better than Disney World, though they’re gonna retheme Paradise Pier ...more - Gregory
Yes! - NickXH
That's a lie.
Heck no, no Disney park is the happiest place on Earth, but Disneyland is original and better yet Disney took better care of Disneyland while leaving Disney World trash.
At least some of the rides at Disneyland are better than Disney World's and they are up to date. - Gregory
Disney always keeps Disneyland’s rides and attractions up to date and alive, and gives them seasonal overlays, and always makes them better than Disney World’s versions.
Also, Disney closes more good Rides at Disney World than they do at Disneyland.
Yet there are attractions like Snow White’s Scary Adventures and Toontown Fair, which are still at Disneyland, but removed from Disney World.
Yet they provide more shade for their ride queues than Disney World does. - Gregory
Good! Frozen is so overrated anyway.
There’s no frozen ride at Disneyland like at Disney World, which is called Frozen Ever After.
In fact, there’s less Frozen overall at Disneyland compared to Disney World. - Gregory
I did Disneyland is LESS THAN HALF A DAY. I spent the other half at California Adventure.
You can hit all of Disneyland in a day, but at Disney World, if you do that, you would literally die. Disneyland has the benefit of being smaller, but still has more rides, making it seem close together, and not forcing you to walk a mile from one end of Magic Kingdom to another ( like at Disney World)
Though it had a horrible opening where everyone burned, starved & peed in the parking lots, it opened in 1955 whereas Disney World opened in 1971 though that had a better opening. - Gregory
No they don't.
Disneyland's rides may have long lines, but at least they provide shade in their queues while Disney World's on the other hand doesn’t provide as much.
Yet Toy Story Land at Disney World hardly provides any shade, leaving everyone there unprotected from the Sun and thunderstorms. - Gregory
