I’m not talking about having a grown-up time at Disney World, I’m referring to the “other” Disney for adults…Las Vegas! Some of my family is there today and boy do I wish I could be there, too. Hope they’re having a great time and winning big money.
When I compare the two destinations, they are more similar than you think; lots of fabulous hotels, restaurants and bright lights. You are also transported into a fantasy world at each location. Disney World is a fairy-tale fantasy and Las Vegas is a “get rich” fantasy. With just one hit of the reels, all of your dreams can come true. Both places have you throwing money around like you were printing it. The only difference is that in Disney World you are getting “something” for your money, but in Vegas, you’re really just throwing it away.
I love both destinations equally, although, Vegas may edge out Disney due to better shopping and people watching. Lots of characters in Vegas, and not the kind in furry costumes.
The “family” theme was big in Vegas for a while and was not one of my favorite times to be there. Too many strollers, and little kids, not to mention that god-awful theme park at MGM. Thank goodness Vegas went back to its roots as “Sin City”; so much more fun.
I was in Vegas in May and in Disney World in October, so I’m set for a few months before I’m ready for my next fix.
Do you visit both destinations? Which one do you like best?
