Hi everyone! I wanted to introduce myself. I'm not new to MouseWait, but I am from the "West Side" so to speak. I live just a few minutes away from Disneyland, I practically grew up at the park. But I will be making my VERY FIRST trip to Disney World next month and I can't wait! I've dreamed about visiting Walt Disney World ever since I was a little girl. My parents could never afford it when I was a kid, but now that I'm grown I finally have the time an the money to take a trip of this magnitude. Included is a picture my boyfriend took of Sleeping Beauty Castle here at Disneyland. I look forward to finally being able to stand in front of Cinderella's castle and seeing it for the first time in person.
Hi and welcome to the FLip side , you are so going to love wdw , I totally get what you are saying that's how I feel about DL , I'm planning a trip there at the end of the yr, beautiful pic btw:) - tracsant  910.9 #2 7:23PM
Hi and welcome to our side!! Your first trip will be magical!! - ccmom  184.1 #40 7:51PM
Welcome to the Florida side !!!!! Your going to love WDW !!! There is so much to see & do !!!! The resorts are awesome also !!!! Enjoy the magic !!!!!!! - skcanfield  467.8 #12 8:06PM
Hello and welcome! You're gonna love WDW! - disneycm  528.2 #10 8:15PM
Hi welcome. It must be exciting to finally get to see WDW. Your going to have a blast. How many days are you going for and where are you going to stay? - 5disneylovers  771.2 #5 8:17PM
As Tracy said, welcome to the FLip side! I grew up going to DL too (I live in Seattle) and took my first trip to WDW as an adult. While there are many similarities, DL & WDW are very different! Try not to get too hung up on the differences and enjoy WDW for what it is. No amount of research can fully prepare you for your first visit (I was a travel agent & Disney destination specialist on my first visit, and I was totally unprepared!) Try not to feel overwhelmed and have fun! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  798.3 #3 8:25PM
You may never look at Disneyland the same way. I grew up out there as a child too. Moved back East and started going to WDW. Visited Disneyland last summer and was disappointed. So very small in comparison. Still its Disney. - Experiment869  152.5 #49 8:44PM
Welcome! WDW is just so much bigger and spaced out. A lot of your favorite rides will have small differences in WDW. There are pleanty of new attractions as well. Have a great time. Dont forget your Photpass + its worth every penny. I made a book on shutterfly when we came home from WDW. - pinkmonkeys  513.4 #335 8:59PM
Welcome you are going to love it here and in DW. A first visit is so exciting. There are so many food choices that are amazing. Do you have the dinning plan - mmddgp  372.9 #18 9:11PM
Yes do make your dining reservations as soon as you reach your 180 day...it's much harder to get the popular restaurants in Wdw...dl is so much easier... - islandgirl58  251.6 #25 9:51PM
Welcome!! I never went to WDW as a child, as we could never afford it, and we lived too far away. Now that I am grown with children of my own, we have relocated to the South and just took our kids to WDW for their first trip this past April. It was amazing to do something my own parents could not do! Hope you love it!! - ncjal  201.0 #33 10:05PM
Welcome! Have a great time at WDW and we are here to help you with any planning advice you want! - Andrea84  625.4 #7 10:14PM
Hi and Welcome!!! You will be in heaven, there is so much to see that is new. I go to DL ever year, so I love it, too. But WDW is just massive! - ally  506.0 #11 10:20PM
Welcome to the FLip side!! - mrsincredible  766.9 #6 10:35PM
Thanks everyone so much for the warm welcome. - NotNKansasAnymor  204.9 #1782 12:39AM
Hello & welcome! (Sorry, I came in late!) We hope you have a wonderful first trip to WDW! :) Oh, and I agree that the Photopass + is a must! - LilyBellesMom  15.4 #177 12:52AM
Hello and welcome! I'm from the 'west' side too. You will love WDW! There's nothing like the first time! - goofygal  6065.6 #11 10:26AM
Beautiful picture! - mgnbr  3.1 #1343 11:52PM
I was a dlander most of my life but moved to mid-west and became hooked on WDW. It made the first trip back to dland feel like it was miniature. Besides the immense size of WDW and 4 parks, be prepared for the differences Haunted Mansion is Brick and pirates is not the same, I miss not having the blue buyou at WDW. Embrace WDW don't spend your time comparing. Restaurants you may consider Be our Guest for Lunch be there before it opens at 10:30(we got in line at 10:15 and were probably 120 back), Boma at Animal Kingdom has different but good food, Chef Mickeys at Contemporaty is wild and crazy fun. Beaches and Cream at Beach Club is a fun soda fountain feel. Have Fun - Betsyboo  17.2 #163 11:49AM
