If you want the essence of Walt Disney, you may want to skip Orlando

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy going to WDW in Orlando. The resorts are huge and there is much to do. However, if you want to feel that REAL magic, the kind where craftsmanship had a soul; California's Disney is the way to go.  They even have a Pinocchio ride!

WDW is all about the big event, but not always the details which is what made Disney stand out from the other theme parks. You can tell by the money and effort WDW will throw into Star wars. Meanwhile the iconic rides like the People mover, that old workhorse, are neglected. Not even bothering to paint something interesting on the walls.
"Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow, please contact Mr. Johnson in the control tower to confirm your Flight to the Moon.

Meanwhile, I hope that Disneyland learns from Walt Disney World what not to do.   Its not all about the quantity.  So far they have been able to  keep the essence of Walt. Hope they can hold out.
