You know that ferry that you ride to get from the parking lot to the Magic Kingdom and how they mention it’s similar to the Staten Island ferry? Yeah, well, we got the real thing here but with fewer costumed water skiers riding your wake but more Coast Guard patrols.
You’ll hear more languages on one block of New York than you will on 3 trips of “It’s A Small World.” And you’ll learn how to say “I’m walkin’ here!” in all of them!
While we don’t have a Swiss Family Robinson Tree House, we do have some pretty impressive cardboard housing in many of our alleyways.
Epcot may have the International Pavilion, but we have Chinatown, Little Italy, Koreatown, Spanish Harlem, Germantown, the Lower East Side and Regular Harlem.
You like the birds of the Tiki-Tiki Room? Then come meet our pigeons!
If you enjoy the Haunted Mansion, just wait until you see Penn Station at 2am!
Times Square is basically the same as the Magic Kingdom, only our costumed characters smell of Red Bull and gin. Coincidentally, tazing is allowed here.
Liked California Soarin’? Just try Fleein’ Red Hook.
If you like souvenirs then check out NYC’s sidewalk vendors. It’s like exiting every building through the gift shop!
Sure, Disney’s got the Country Bear Jamboree, but we’ve got rats the side of country bears. Please don’t try to get them to autograph anything.
New York has less pixie dust but more urine odors.
Disney has shows and special places to meet and greet the characters but New York’s got characters all over the place that put on quite a show.
Do you like Tower of Terror? Then ride any one of our many city elevators. All the safety inspectors are on the take, so it’s only a matter of time before one of them gives way.
Remember, Disneyland has free shows throughout the park where you can just walk in and enjoy. But try to walk into one of the Disney plays on Broadway without paying and you will be beaten with a flashlight.
Fireworks? No, actually that was just gun fire.
We hope you find this brief guide helpful in bringing you to the realization that New York City and DisneyWorld are alike in many ways, beyond being prime terrorist targets. Enjoy your stay!
