In the U.S., you get the choice of visiting Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida.
The Disneyland resort covers about 500 acres and consists of two theme parks: Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park .
Walt Disney World is much larger: almost 25,000 acres – or around 40 square miles
While you could see all the main attractions at Disneyland in a day or two, you would need close to a week to see everything at Walt Disney World.
Tickets at both resorts are expensive. You can expect to pay more than $100 for a one-day, single-park ticket .
If you have the choice, go during off-peak times, avoiding popular holidays and school breaks. Fewer crowds mean you'll spend less time in line and be able to experience more of the park .
There are more than a dozen rides that you'll find at both resorts, including the two classics Pirates of the Caribbean and It's a Small World.
Both parks have an abundance of food options, whether from sidewalk snack carts, food courts, or upscale eateries.
