I’m still on a vacation high and I can’t believe I’m back home. I’m already planning my next trip! So while I’m day dreaming about Disney World, I’m going to share some things that happened on my trip. Disney World is a whole different ballgame compared to Disneyland (I’ll compare them in a different post) but I enjoyed it so much! Seriously, how can you miss a place so much!? I’m going to be sharing my hits and misses and overall travel diary of this trip!

Here’s some misses: (I wanted to start here because I don’t want this end in a downer)

Cast Members

There was a HUGE difference from the way CMs acted here compared to Disneyland. I saw a lot of them texting on stage or just looking really bored and weren’t helpful. They weren’t necessarily rude (shout out to the CMs working the Wishes party, they were the best) but they just didn’t seem to embody the magic that was around them.

Transportation

I’ve going to say this once, just because it’s bigger, doesn’t mean it’s better. Although overall transportation wasn’t horrible, but we experienced delays. It took us an hour to get from Magic Kingdom to our hotel one of the days. We tried going to Disney Springs one night and the bus kept getting delayed. But I will say that I LOVE that they have an automatic announcement on buses, Disneyland doesn’t have that and you can barely understand the driver.

Here’s some hits:

Entertainment

The queue for their royal hall is so beautiful and meeting Cinderella was so wonderful! Peter Pan was very Peter Pan-ish and fun. They also had Elena of Avalor out, which was my favorite thing. Festival of Fantasy is such a beautiful parade. I already miss Wishes. I watched the Welcome Show which is such a great way to start the day. Entertainment was great all around.

Food

I always heard people say food at Disneyland is better than at WDW. Although, Disneyland does have more variety, WDW did not disappoint. The Mexican food at Epcot was so delicious and we ate the Grey Stuff at Be Our Guest was so good! I didn’t eat as much treats as I would’ve liked, but it was all good.

Magic

I love the castle. I love the details in Animal Kingdom. I love everything! It embodies everything magical that is Disney. Every turn there was something that made me so happy to be there. Theming on point y’all.

————————————————————————————

I seriously fell in love with Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom was seriously a gem. Right now I’m trying to decide if I do a longer trip back or to go to Tokyo Disneyland. Give me some tips! Catch some more pictures on my personal Instagram or over at my Disney Instagram!

  • It sounds like you had a wonderful trip! I’ll be curious to see what your thoughts comparing the two are since you’re the queen of Disneyland basically. You said you’re already planning your next trip, so what Disney location will it be? 😉

  • I’m going to try to be fair to Disney World and not show my bias haha I was originally going to do Disney World again and stay longer and in a nicer hotel BUT if I’m going to drop some money I decided it be somewhere new, so Tokyo Disneyland here I come (;

  • I have not been to Disney World since high school. We performed there for my dance school. I do remember the transportation taking a long time when we went as well.

  • JEALOUS! I haven’t been to Disney World since I was ten and I am dying to go back. I am a Disneyland AP so I’m there all the time, but there’s just so much more to do at WDW. I have to say, I am shocked to hear about CMs acting that way! I really feel like 99% of the CMs at Disneyland truly love their jobs, and it shows.

  • Yeah it was so frustrating and there were tons of others waiting with us so I don’t get how they couldn’t send a bus over.

  • No way! I’m an AP here too! I’m probably at Disneyland 2-3 times a week, which made me really protective over it because there were tons bad mouthing it. I actually feel like (at least for Magic Kingdom) it didn’t offer anything different than Disneyland, it’s just more spread out. I was so surprised about the CMs! I’m so used to them being happy and going out of their way for guests!

  • One day I will go to Disneyworld. One day…

  • Aww I’m bummed that the CMs weren’t that great for you. I’ve never seen any of that at WDW but I’m sure they do it. *Sigh* I’m glad to hear you tried the grey stuff at Be Our Guest. It was delicious, right? I love it.

  • Yeah it was crazy! I had a friend who worked at both Disneyland and WDW and she said that there is a difference because at Disneyland they focus more on doing the Disney difference where at WDW they don’t. I LOVED the grey stuff! It was so good! I would try to get a reservation again when I go back!

  • Aw I hope you get to come soon!

  • I’m just catching up on this now as I was away when you came back! That’s too bad about the CM’s – I’ve almost always encountered great ones with amazing service at WDW. I did hear within the past year or two they cut down their initial training from 3 days to 1 day, so maybe that has something to do with it. I’m so glad to hear you loved Animal Kingdom, that park has such a special place in my heart!
