Upon our return from Walt Disney World in Florida to California, we decided to undertake a very special challenge: to go from Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Florida to Disneyland, California in one day!

This took some prep and planning, but it's a Disney Bucket List item that anyone can do.  All you really need is a direct flight from Orlando to LAX and Disneyland late hours (by "late" we mean not closing at 8pm).

We started our day at opening (8am) at Magic Kingdom:
The Park Plaque in Magic Kingdom
We took a photo in front of Cinderella's Castle in Magic Kingdom.
Minnie Mouse is giving me a boost in the photo below:
That crane is STILL there
And on our way out at about 11am, we took a photo in front of the Main Street Station:

We also got "I'm Celebrating" buttons from City Hall in Magic Kingdom.
Then we had to catch our flight to Los Angeles!

We arrived at LAX at about 7:45pm.  We got our luggage, caught the shuttle to the parking lot and headed straight to Disneyland! 
We arrived at about 9:15pm, and we went straight to City Hall for our button and then took our photos:

Me and my Owl friend in front of Disneyland's Castle
Main Street Station in Disneyland
We also acquired Fast Passes for Space Mountain in both Magic Kingdom and Disneyland.  In addition to our buttons, those are our souvenirs of a wonderful adventure!
