Attention to detail for that escapist in all of us.



It's a great place to be with your family and have fun.

Sure the place has changed. It's called evolution. If they didn't change it people would just find a different reason to bitch.
This little smile is why Disneyland rules.

Cheers.

Matt,
The house is coming along great! Love what you did with the bar. Can't wait to come over and ride the Jungle Cruise.
Reminds me of Disneyland!

I have an idea Matt. Think of that sound a rolly coaster car makes as it is going UP the first climb.

I like all kinds of stuff about Disneyland but I think especially, I like the water--the water rides, the waterfalls, the synthetic rivers and streams. I like the chlorination of the water, I like everything about the water there. It looks good, it sounds good.

The submarine ride is not what it was (the "Finding Nemo" redo just doesn't work for me, sorry to say--watching 2D animation through 3D water doesn't make any sense to me!) but I like the elements that remain from the old ride.

I wish they hadn't changed some things, but hey, a lot of the stuff is the same, or maintained to be close to the same as the way it was, and that's why I go there.

I noticed that Cammo's thread on Why Disneyland Sucks got kind of heated. I will admit I started this thread just to have a positive outlet for Disney (and to mess with Cam a little). I hear what's being said about the bad....I just don't have the energy at the moment to focus on a negative thread. It just gets depressing.
Cheers.

What is superb about Disneyland;

- The caves at Pirate Island. (Where else in Southern California can you play with Captain Jack Sparrow in a cave??? Kids are going to remember it for a lifetime.)

- The Mint Julip Bar, at the back of New Orleans. Good espresso.

- The sounds of a voodoo lady doing juju magic and a raucus party happening across the street, right above the bathroom beside the Mint Julip Bar.

- The Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room, d'accord.

- The Space Mountain update. It's perfect. Nice job.

- ANY live music there.

- The holiday version of It's a Small World.

- Finding something you never saw before.

- The Evil Queen over the Snow White Ride, who looks out the window sometimes.

- The lights in the Haunted Mansion - look up at the second story facing New Orleans Square - you'll see mysterious shapes and lights sometimes.

- The honorable Mr. Toad, Esq. (Read "The Wind in the Willows" to your kids sometimes, it's fun.)

- The plantings.

- The tiny little glimpses of flags and masts you can see from the top of the treehouse. They were put there years ago, everyone seems to have forgotten them.

- Smiles from strangers.

- Cutting in front of a 2 hour line with a Fastpass in your mitt.

- That chick who plays Ariel.

- A Fantasia Grand Gibson ice cream shared on Main Street.

- And much much more.

Okay, in all fairness I'll be forced to put something in the why it sucks thread.
