We are planning an extended family trip (my parents and my sisters family) next summer. We have been to Disneyworld and loved it but my Mom would like to go to Disneyland. It is farther (we live in StL, Mo) so driving would be really hard to do. The park is smaller but we could maybe see some of CA. What is driving in the area like? Where is the closest airport (LAX?) Which hotel is best? The Disneyland Hotel was the first right? So I bet it is special! How many days would we want to see everything? For Disneyworld I don't like to have less than 5 to do all the parks and a day for "favorites". And more is ALWAYS better! What makes Disneyland special over Disneyworld? Thanks for helping me think this through! I don't know how to decide really!
