A Disneyland pro goes to WDW for the first time – PREP050

Today, I have a different kind of first-timer trip report because this one comes from a Disneyland pro who just returned from her Disney World trip with her family.

I also have a quick tip of the day about scheduling a wake-up call in your Disney World resort room.

This is perfect timing! As a Sacramento native, (now transplanted in Kentucky), I grew up with a few trips to Disneyland and later California Adventure under my belt. With this site’s help, I’ve been planning since March for our 1st WDW trip in October and our 5yo daughter’s 1st Disney anything.
