I was at WDW for the press event to kick off of the HCOE & thought it would be neat to be at DL for the last day. Finally decided it was doable. Just made plane ressie for trip 9/30-10/5. It's my first trip to DL & to California! Any tips from the experts???? :cool1: :cheer2: :banana:

Defintely ride all the classics: Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates, Space Mountain, etc.
Tour the hotels. DL Hotel had some really beautiful areas, as does Grand Californian.
Downtown Disney is really fun & can easily be a day in and of itself. Shop, eat, go see a movie, watch performers that are out and etc.
I would also make sure to see Fantasmic! Its a great show and even if you've seen it at WDW, its a different experience here with the rivers of america and different elements to the show.
And most of all...have fun! :banana:

I love, love, love Disneyland. :woohoo: I know you're going to have a fantastic time! Having been to DLR 12 times and MK twice, just know that the attractions will be slightly different at the 2 theme parks. For instance, don't expect to see an exact duplicate of Pirates of the Caribbean. Main Street, also, is set up a bit differently. It was fun experiencing the similiarities and differences at both parks!

Enjoy your time there! :tink:
