I have been asked by some friends to plan a trip to the US for their family Sept 2013. They have 2 sons 11 and 13 and of course they want to see Disneyland and Universal Studios. The husband has expressed a wish to see, if possible, Kennedy Space Center which of course is on the other side of the country!. Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between the Calif and Florida Disney and Universal? Is one better than the other? We'd be coming from Australia so the Calif. would be closer but I'd really like to help the husband out so he can see what he wants. Any info would be much appreciated.

1. Re: Disneyland

Im not sure anyone can help you really decide which one may be better.

They are different though, there are many original rides ect at Disneyland since its the Original Park and has a special feel to it all its own imo.

Disneyland however, is located in Anaheim which is about a 45 min drive South of the LA area, so not in LA.

Universal Studios is a working studio in Hollywood, and is not a working one in Florida.

Its really up to you since you can combine Disneyworld, Universal Studios and the Kennedy Space Center all in one area which is obviously more convenient for you.
