The difference between Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure  
When you first enter Disneyland, you pass by the floral Mickey Mouse at the main entrance, and pass under a bridge. It doesn't matter which direction you go, the bridge is there, and on the arch of the bridge you pass under there is a plaque. The plaque has a quote from Walt Disney - it reads:

"Here you leave today and enter the words of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy"

This is a great summary of Disneyland. It's a place to escape from the world as we know it, and enter into a land of dreams.

Disney's California Adventure is all about the world of today. It's about a specific place of today, namely, CA, but it's about today's world.

That, in a nutshell, sums up the biggest difference between the two parks. They were approached with different ideals in mind, and so the environment around you has a different feel to it. It's hard to put your finger on it at first, but that's pretty much why.

And now you know.

And knowing is half the battle.
