I am a true blue Disneyland fan. We have been going to Disney for every other Christmas now for years, with little mini trips to DL at other times of the year.
California Adventure is a great place as well. I don't understand the poor reviews some posters give the place.
My boys(11,18,and 20) prefer DCA over DL.
It's definately not DL, but it is interesting and exciting in it's own unique way. The rides are different from DL; but fun never the less.
My husband loves the animation studios in DCA, I love the whole Pardise Pier area.
Oh, and who can forget Soaring over California!!!
So to anybody who hasn't been yet, go with an open mind, you probably won't be disappointed :))
