    Have you looked up the words in one or more of the dictionaries here OneLook: General dictionary sites

    The words differ in meaning more than in 'strength'.

    Thanks
    I would rather be "disappointed" and "let down" than be "disillusioned". For me, disillusioned means a total destruction or abandonment of an idea, belief, or principle. With time, I can get over a feeling of disappointment or being let down; I might never recover from being disillusioned about something.
