Here's our Disneyland 7-Day Sample Itinerary
If your only Disney experience so far has been Walt Disney World in Florida, be prepared for a more intimate experience. Disneyland is different from WDW in lots of ways. Mainly, Disneyland is smaller. The parks are smaller (not a bad thing). Downtown Disney and the 3 resorts are all adjacent to the parks. What’s more, you can walk everywhere.
On top of that, there are only 2 theme parks - the original Disneyland (DL) and California Adventures (CA). Because of this, you don’t really need a full week at Disneyland. Honestly, you’d probably run out of stuff to do after about day 5.
At the same time, you could easily spend a week or more in Southern California (SoCal). Also, if you're traveling from the East Coast or Midwest, you want to make the most of your trip. So, to help you plan your Disneyland trip, here is a suggested 7-day Disneyland itinerary:
Here are 3 Sample Itineraries
For a limited time, Universal Studios Orlando is offering an incredible deal! You get 3 Free Park Days with the purchase of 2-Day tickets. And as much as we love Disney, you can pretty much guarantee the House of Mouse will never offer this type of ticket deal. However, this deal is only good for Park-to-Park tickets purchased through June 12, 2019.
To celebrate this deal, we've outlined 3 different sample itineraries for Universal Studios Orlando. With each itinerary, we’re assuming you purchase Park-to-Park tickets which let you visit multiple parks in one day. We're also assuming that you’re staying at an on-site resort.

We love a good burger as much as anyone else (head to Cosmic Ray's in Magic Kingdom for a good burger with an awesome toppings bar). But sometimes you want something other than a burger. Here are some of our favorite Quick Service spots at Disney World.
