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?

The look is definitely you! Sounds like you had a fun day. I'm sure we would be distracted by missing our kids too. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 10:56AM

Looks great! - islandgirl58  452.9 #18 1:38PM
I'm glad to hear you found some of the magic! There are some rides I prefer at DL and others I prefer at WDW. Of course there's Indiana Jones too! Both destinations have things to offer. But, if given the choice between a long weekend at DL and a week at WDW, 4 out of 5 times I'm picking WDW! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 5:04PM

Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed some aspects of DL! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 6:44PM
Sounds like you had fun. I hope settling your dad's estate wasn't as unpleasant as settling my Dad's was. - ally  509.0 #17 8:28PM
