    Re: Need help planning first visit to DLR...

    Southern California is more than just amusement parks.

    I, personally, can't imagine going to Knott's Berry Farm or Six Flags Magic Mountain on a vacation. They're relatively generic.

We love Disney. We've been to every Disney theme park except for DLR in California.
    If you want to get an idea of what you can do in a day you might look at purchasing RideMax software, it has taught me a lot about getting the most out of the park. And given the state of the US Dollar on the exchange market it probably so cheap that they have to give you money.

    Depends on where you are coming from.

    Knott's still has some of that old Knott's charm. It's not completely overridden by roller coasters... yet. There is a lot of history there. The mine train ride and the log ride are both classic and well worth the short trip from Disneyland, especially if you are staying two weeks.

    I would recommend going to Magic Mountain (or Cedar Point) if you love roller coasters as they are the two big roller coaster parks in the US. There are Internet clubs that do nothing but visit roller coaster parks like Theme Park Review. Obviously you wouldn't go to either of those parks if an unthemed (or sparsely themed at Magic Mountain) coaster environment isn't your thing.

    There are a lot of places and things to see in Southern California and it all depends on what you are looking for.

    PS:I HATE THE BEACH
    That's a little better -- still way too much Disneyland but whatever floats your boat...

    And the beach thing -- forgive me but whenever people ask about visiting the DLR I almost always insist they visit the beach. They might hate it but having lived here all my life, to me the beach is just as sacred as Disneyland is. The only difference is Disneyland is inland by about 10- 15 miles.

    Um...

    Knott's has and always will have a soft spot in my heart. It is the place along with Disneyland that you take your aunt, uncle and cousins from Idaho to whenever they come for a visit.

    Re: Need help planning first visit to DLR...

    The longest I have been to DLR is for 5 days, we took everything very leisurely, took breaks in the afternoon, we would just sit and people watch, and ride our favorite rides over and over. I would definately do it again, especially if I had kids or a larger group going. Enjoy your time, take in all the details and if you can do some of the tours. Then when you get home let us know how it went!
