    You get a sense of that in the Cars Land research video that Pixar did.

    True enough Terry. But since I'm a Manhattan Transfer fan, that's what you get!

    I did coast to coast in 3 weeks and saw tons so a single state in 3 weeks would be easy.

    With the added bonus of not having the endless drive through Texas. :yawn:

    Jules, I would think that 3 days should be plenty for Disneyland, depending on when you get there. We did it over a 3 day Memorial Day Weekend in 2005 and it was jammed. I can't answer about Universal as I've never done either one.

    The trip itself is only a little over 500 miles and if you drove straight through you could probably do it in 7 to 8 hours, depending on traffic. That's why, even with sightseeing I would think you could easily do it in 3 weeks.

    San Diego to Vancouver would be an incredible drive. You'd definitely have to do some research and have plans to visit somethings along the way. Seattle is a much loved city (I had to go there for work, so didn't really get to see the best of the place). Mario Battali's Father has a Salumi shop there! :D

    California would be the longest portion of that drive, of course. Vancouver is absolutely wonderful! Save a good few days for that city alone.

    Three weeks would definitely be a nice time, but you'll always wish you had longer.

    Regarding LA, it depends on how much you want to do. Do you want to do the traditional things, like Grauman's Chinese theater, etc? Rodeo Drive? Drive along the PCH for a bit, for SURE! It's so cool to see the "famous" beaches of the old movies.

    Can't help you with comparison of Universal there to Orlando. Never been to Universal in California, but I would think going to that one would be great as it is the original. Disneyland is nice if only for the historical perspective. It's a much loved park, but so very different from WDW. Kind of neat to see it all contained in one place. Again, a different perspective.

    You could plan a culinary tour! Or a wine tasting tour. California has fabulous wineries, but so does Washington and Oregon is coming into its own for nice wine too.

    Big Sur, Sacramento, San Francisco... Heck, Santa Monica and Santa Barbara! California alone has enough to do in three weeks to use up all your time!

    But, as I said if you had a good plan worked out for things you really wanted to see and do, with some unscheduled time for impromtu stops you should have one heck of a three week adventure!






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!
