Hello fellow Tuesday readers,
Last weekend, I was in Disneyland! Yes, it was a spur of the moment thing to get away from everything back at home. Life has been extremely stressful so it was nice to be a kid at the happiest place on Earth for a few days. I have an annual pass so I try to go as often as possible. I usually make it out there for 5-6 times per year so I get my money’s worth!
It’s funny how a place can instantly make you happy. It takes me back to when I was a kid experiencing everything for the first time. Everyone at my work doesn’t seem what’s so great about that place and it genuinely is a hard thing to explain. It’s magical, cheesy but true. Most people who don’t get it actually have never even been there before so they think it’s just for kids.
For the most part, I do go for the rides. My favorites are Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, California Screamin, Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Railroad. However, that’s not the only reason. The characters, the music, the theming is always nothing short of spectacular. The workers put 110% of themselves into the place and it’s just a great happy environment to be in. Every time I go, there’s always something new to do.
This past summer, I even took a tour of Disneyland just to cross it off my bucket list. I also love the history of Walt and the creation of Disneyland. I knew a lot of facts and trivia and I actually did learn quite a few more details of putting the place together. I even got to visit Walt’s apartment complex that he used to stay in on Main Street. I get such a rush even speaking about it.
So basically, when I’m older, hopefully in my 80’s or 90’s, I will be yelling to my grandkids to push me around the park still. It keeps me young. It keeps me happy.
And that’s really all you need to know about the place! Have a good rest of the week!
