Meeting Marvel Characters at Disneyland
I tell people all the time that Walt Disney World and Disneyland are similar but different – one is not better than the other. While they have a lot in common, there are some things that can’t be experienced at both places.
Here’s a list of some of my favorite experiences at Disneyland that aren’t available at Walt Disney World
Walk Between The Theme Parks, Hotels and Downtown Disney
I love how everything at Disneyland is in walking distance – the hotels, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney are all in one area and just a short walk apart.
See my video below.
Carsland can only be found at Disney California Adventure and it is super cool! It literally feels like you have walked right in to Radiator Springs. The big attraction is Radiator Springs Racers and it is a blast. You’ll also find Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree. You can find fun foods and snacks at Flo’s V8 Café and the Cozy Cone Motel.

See Marvel Characters
Due to an old contractual agreement you can’t see most of the big name Marvel heroes at Walt Disney World, but at Disneyland Spiderman, Captain American and Black Panther are among characters you can see at Disney California Adventure
Avengers Campus is an entirely new land dedicated to discovering, recruiting and training the next generation of Super Heroes at the Disneyland Resort inside Disney California Adventure.

Ride The Matterhorn
The Matterhorn was the world’s first steel roller coaster and is a true Disney classic attraction that can only be found at Disneyland. It’s something you just have to ride at least once.
Eat at Cafe Orleans
Café Orleans is one of my favorite Disney restaurants anywhere. This is the home of the Disneyland classic Monte Cristo fried sandwich – this battered turkey, ham and Swiss treat dusted with powdered sugar and served with berry purée is truly a slice of heaven…and be sure to get the pommes frites with it!
Beside the New Orleans inspired menu I love the open-air outside dining area that overlooks New Orleans and the Rivers of America that has incredible views and people watching.
