I loved our time at the resort, but it was much too short. Just like Walt Disney World, you need more than 1 day in each park. If I could do it over, I would plan a minimum of 3 days to take in both parks and Downtown Disney. Knowing a decent amount about Walt Disney World, I didn't do as much research for our DL trip as I should have. I got Birnbaum's Disneyland Resort guide book, but didn't spend as much time as should have reading it. I also reviewed the Disneyland web site, but again, not enough. I wish now, I had done more research on this park, since it was probably my only shot at being there.
My tip for you today is a list of great Disneyland blogs I've come across since my trip to Disneyland- awesome timing, huh!?!
