    I vote Disney World. There are soo many parks that are easily accessible. Universal Studios is nearby and the citywalk is fun. I’ve never been to California so I can’t say anything about disneyland.

    I went in August soo it was HHH! it was also right after a major hurricane, so everything was a mess, but I had a blast!

    I’m also an East Coast girl so i’m a little biased i guess! 😉

    Disney World is the better of the two.  There are four parks in Orlando (not including water parks) and you can probably expect to spend at least one day at each park.  If you stay on property at Disney World, you are completely immersed in the magic Wink which can be great.  You can go off property to see Orlando but once you are on property it is unlikely to go off property.  There is so much to do and see there.

    Disneyland on the other hand, because it is not enclosed like Disneyworld you lose a little of the magic.  It is a lot more  low key but the parks are just as fun.  There are two parks so 2 days would probably be enough to do everything. 

    Also, I’m not sure when you are planning to visit the parks, but Disneyworld will run a special during their off season (humid and monsoon time) where you get free meals.  This was the best thing ever, not only did we enjoy the parks but we were always eating (and yes we were able to use the meal vouchers at Cinderella’s castle!).  But it really isn’t too much more in costs to add additional nights (at least in my experience).

    If you want to see the surrounding areas in addition to the parks, Disneyland would be your best bet.  Just a warning, you really can’t go to Disneyland after visiting Disneyworld.  There is just no comparison.

    Well I’ve never been to the one in California, but I can vouch for Orlando.  FI and I have been going there at least once a year for the past 7 years.  We love it so much – We’re honeymooning there!  lol

    Disney World, just because it’s the only one I have ventured to, though that will change if I marry my boyfriend as I’ll be living closer to Disney Land. Hmm … Disney World is huge, and is a lot of fun, and there are hidden gems everywhere!

    I voted Florida, but that’s bc you’ve already been to Disneyland. See something new! That free meal thing sounds good too! Food is so expensive! But I really don’t think you will regret either place 🙂

    Disney geek alert!! Embarassed

    I’m giving Florida the nod here. That said, you can’t go wrong with either one – really! Disneyland is great since it’s smaller, more compact, easier to navigate and has a lot going on around it. Great hotels if you don’t want to pay the premium for Disney properties and it’s the “original”. California Adventure is really coming into it’s own with the World of Color nighttime show and I had one of the best meals of my life at Napa Rose at the Grand Californian Hotel. I’m totally looking forward to Cars Land when it opens in 2012 too! My cutie-patutie nephew LUVS Lighting McQueen, so I’m hoping we can make it a family trip with my sister.

    On the other hand Disneyworld is an immersive, don’t bug me, forget about the rest of the world kind of place and when I’m on vacation, that’s what I want. If you do decide to go for Florida, I highly recommend you stay at a Disney hotel (even if it’s a Value resort it’s worth it) and do your homework before you go. There are many, many great planning communites on the web. I like intercot.com and allears.net Now matter where you go, don’t try and see it/do it all – you won’t. That’s okay, chances are you’re gonna love it and come back.

    When are you planning on going? Dear Fiance and I are going for a happy birthday/holy crap I graduated/lets plan this damn wedding trip August 14th thru the 20th. Hot, schmot – the only time I LIKE heat and humidity is when I’m in the World. Maybe we’ll see you there!

    DisneyWorld is my favorite place ON EARTH. We got engaged there (at Epcot) and I’ve just always loved it. There’s a vibe of total happy. Go there for sure.

    @Masala: Oh, awesome! Where did you get engaged? My Fiance popped the question at Magic Kingdom right after the fireworks last summer.

    @Ms. Pink Scrubs: The fireworks at Disney are so awesome! We got engaged in Epcot’s Italy. There was suddenly no one else around and I was looking out over the lake, and when I turned around he was on one knee. 🙂
