Here was my verdict on Disneyland..... first of all thanks for everyones comments and advice not to compare DL to WDW. I grew up in my early childhood in CA and had been to DL many times. In 97 I visited again. Yesterday, my wife and I decided to focus on rides and attractions that were not at WDW. After completing those we went back and rode rides found at both parks. I must say the Star Tours upgrade was AWESOME! We had a great time but were missing our kids. I think that was a big part of the "missing magic." All in all it was a great distraction from settling my fathers estate. Indiana Jones ride was fantastic. Pirates - I like DL's better than WDW. How do you like the Wookie Hat from Star Tours?
