    Love the panel! My ? is about reentry to the parks. When we went to Disneyland in '07 after the first "card swipe" if you wanted to come back later you got a UV stamp that allowed you back in. Is this the same at WDW? Also how similar is MK to di

    They used to do a hand stamp at WDW when you exited the park, but I have not seen this done on any of my half dozen trips to Disney World this year. When you leave, you just leave. If you return, you swipe your card again.

    You question go cut off, but I think you were going to ask about the similarities and differences between Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida.  It's funny, in many ways they are very similar and in others they are totally different. I've been to WDW dozens of times, but when I visited Disneyland I was disoriented at first -- the parks are laid out very differently. But then I loved checking out the rides that were new to me (oooh, the Matterhorn) and comparing/contrasting the "repeats." For example, I LOVE Splash Mountain at WDW. I was excited to ride the Disneyland version, assuming that it would be the same. I was shocked at how different the two experiences were (and wow I sure do prefer the Florida version of that one). I had a similar reaction to the Haunted Mansion. On the other hand, Soarin' in California is nearly identical to Soarin' in Florida. I think you'll have a great time exploring the similarities and differences of the parks.
