After something around 40 trips to Walt Disney World, I was finally able to make it to Disneyland this past March. Here is a list somewhat comparing WDW to DL, in my own little style.
Things I liked better at DL
PotC- Blew me out of the water. It was just so much better in more ways than one.
Space Mountain-Repeat above, adding a comment about a great soundtrack.
Fantasyland- Really, an overall better collection of rides, and it doesn't look as cheap
Tiki Room-Given that I would like this. This was my first time seeing the original version of the show. It is absolutely wonderful, though honestly not my favorite
Things I like better at WDW
Tower of Terror- The DL version wasn't as bad as I thought It was going to be, but I still had a strong disliking of it, for a number of reasons
Splash Mountain- Prefer the banjo soundtrack at WDW, though both rides are excellent
Haunted Mansion- Ever so slightly, since their so similar. I like WDW's facade better than DL's
Buzz Lightyear= More references to the TV cartoon ;)
Small World- Officially on the I hate the Disney Characters in the ride bandwagon
Fronteirland- Very Underwhelming compared to the WDW one, which really gives a feel of the rambling old west.
Things exclusive to DL I liked
Matterhorn- Just a classic Roller Coaster
Roger Rabbit- WFRR is my favorite all time movie, and I loved all the inside references to Disney Cartoons in the queue. The Ride was fun to boot
Nemo Subs- Shocked at how much I loved this. I'm a big guy, and I actually like the feeling of being in the Subs. ME liking this shocked me almost as much as American Idol taking a liking from me
Indiana Jones- This should have been the fourth movie. It is a superb representation of the films.
California Screamin-Good Roller Coaster, with a nice soundtrack.
Remember...Dreams Come True- WOW MOST AMAZING THING EVER!
PDJ- Dunno Why, but I loved it.
Mr. Toad- First time ever riding it, Sad its not at WDW anymore.
Finally, I like the CMs in WDW better than the ones in DL. The ones in WDW just seem...happier to the guests. Also, I was shocked at the number of characters I saw over the two days, and even more shocked at who I saw. It was my first time seeing Br'er Bear and Fox as meetable in the parks, and I was floored to see Mickey Mouse as a Walk Around. That would never ever happen in WDW.
