Just got back from Disney World and it has been 20 years since I've been to Disney Land but Disney World is just a bigger more improved version of Land

My dad used to do some annual gig (he's a musician) at Disney world, so my family went every year for awhile. but I was either not born yet or a baby at the time and I totally don't remember at all. totally sucks.

Soo geographical division, all the states near California go for Disneyland, but the rest of the us for disneyworld...... It is because they are near Disneyland...

I love the map of votes for this one. I've been to Disney land at least 5 times. Not once to Disney world.

DW smokes DL. Theres so much more to do at DW, the 8 or 9 theme parks, the water parks, downtown disney, so kickass. Take your kids to disneyworld when theyre old enough to remember.

theme park (that is now owned by 6 Flags) was opening that year & we'd already been to a little more than half the Six Flags parks in the US. My brother wanted rollercoaster after rollercoaster & I just wanted that Disney experience. I was on cloud nine.

I've been to Disneyland once in about '90 or 91. My dad was living in Vegas at the time, so he took a day few days off and took us there. I still remember a lot of details & still have my autograph book. My brother was bored out of his skull most the time. We had a Sea World in our hometown, a new…

I was on the 2nd floor facing the parking lot side of the building. In the slow season when everyone was off work we could still hear all the whooping and hollering from the pool, lol.

I also feel the same way. Having known it so intimately is really special to me. Have you ever visited Disney Land?

There's also a reason Cast Members are trained to ALWAYS be mindful of whether they are on stage or off. ;) People don't pay an arm and a leg for the realities of what it takes to run an operation like that. They pay for the magic ;)

Well, I can't quite recall how it was at the other parks, but at Epcot most the restaurants back up to the backstage areas. There's a reason for that and there's a reason backstage looks pretty similar to the back of any other restaurant in the nation.

Due to special circumstances, I have been backstage at Disney, and trust me. It is not the place where dreams come true. The place is a dump.

I feel lucky that I got to experience Disneyland as a kid, WDW as an adult and as a Cast Member and that in another year or so I'll be able to view WDW as a little kid in a way through my son's eyes.

We camped at the Hershey Camp grounds near the park three years ago. It was a great time. Just as I remembered it as a kid.

We are going this year because a BFF still works there and gets our family in. I'm too excited about seeing the new MK to wait.

As for the initials, I feel the same way. I can't believe I remember them all

Wow! We have a lot in common, Annie! I use to hang out with the "401 Boys" while I lived there, but can't remember my own room number. Lived with a crazy Hispanic girl.

My husband knows that every kid we have has to go to Disney between 5-6 because it's the height of "magical" at that age.

Yeah, I think that was the theme of Spaceship Earth when I was there. It's hard to remember because I only went on it once. I liked Imagination! and Test Track much better.
Also, awesome name. :)

I tell my hubby all the time that if we won the lottery I'd want to go back to work at WDW or IOA (Worked at Spider-Man)!

My girl is 3 and I am super excited to go see all the expansions at MK that just opened. It's killing me that I can't go explore the tunnels and see how they redid it.

I was a CP at MK at Casey's Corner in '00! Lived at Vista Way (and still fear Hot Tubs to this day!)
Worked seasonal until I graduated college in '04. Worked at AK at CMM! I can quote the whole Festival of the Lion King forwards and backwards!

I still point with 2 fingers!

I've been to both. I prefer Disneyland, and not just because it's closer. It's just got a better layout and certain rides that I love which Disneyworld doesn't have. Most importantly though, I hated Florida (awful awful awful weather). CA is infinitely more pleasant.

my understanding is that they change the theme of the spaceship earth ride every few years. I don't remember much from the first time I went on it, but I was there in 2007 and it was SO cool. it was about the evolution of technology over the past few centuries, or something.

AnnieM food and wine festival are three of my favorite things. Seems like Epcot would be worth the visit. If an alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Planets has me headed in that direction, I won't resist stopping in.

I think it opened in either January or February of 2003. It's in the Future World part of Epcot. It's just in front of Test Track if you're coming from the main entrance/Spaceship Earth (aka, the giant golf ball).
