  • [Fun] What Kind of Disneyland Nerd Are You?

    Let me preface this by saying that I view nerdism in a positive light. Be proud of your passion!

    That said, I've noticed that a passion for Disneyland can come in a wide array of shapes and sizes, and on my blog I tried to come up with the major categories of Disneyland Nerds. Here's my list, feel free to add your own peculiar nerdism or just tell us all where you fit in!
    • The Ostentatious (nerdicus disneylandicus lotsapinsicus) - The ones with all the pins.
    • The Conservationist (nerdicus disneylandicus yewstabebetterus) - The ones who wish we could turn back the clock to a Disneyland of days gone by.
    • The Know-It-All (nerdicus disneylandicus pedanticus) - You know who you are!
    • The Show-Goer (nerdicus disneylandicus luvaparadicus) - Can you rank your favorite fireworks shows? This could be you.
    • The Character-Hugger (nerdicus disneylandicus meetangreeticus) - Yeah, that's you, the adult waiting in line at the Princess Fantasy Faire.
    • The Efficiency-Expert (nerdicus disneylandicus grabafastpassicus) - Give them a Fastpass or give them death!
    • The Hidden-Mickey-Hunter (nerdicus disneylandicus thatswuntharicus) - A gateway to many forms of nerdism.
    That's what I've come up with. I'm mainly an Efficiency Expert, but certainly have my share of Know-It-All, too!

    So where do you fit in?

    I think I'm a combination of:

    The Conservationist
    The Know It All
    and
    The Efficiency Expert

    Fun thread!

          You missed perhaps The Specific Ride Obsessive and The Ambiance Enthusiast. I am those I think
          when the spooks have a midnight jamboree....

            I'm all of those except for the Character Hugger.

            Don't get me wrong... I'll hug a character if came to it but I ain't waiting in line for nor Princess Fantasy Faire. I'm old school where meeting characters was supposed to be fun and spontaneous.

              I don't know if those qualify as nerdy, but you are on Mice Chat so tell me more, please (I think I might be one, too).

              Thanks!

                The Efficiency-Expert (nerdicus disneylandicus grabafastpassicus). If the Museum of Natural History were to ever have an official exhibit dedicated to the various types of Disneyland goers, I would be on display for this species.

                    I'm just overall obsessed with all things Disneyland!

                      HAHAH. I enjoy Disneyland to the point of admitting being borderline obsessed (ok, who am I kidding - I am obsessed...) but I have a very straightforward approach to everything. I know everyone in charge isn't specifically catering to me. I understand going to Disneyland is optional and an privilege. I try to be understanding - hey, if I don't like something, that doesn't mean someone else won't.

                      I used to go every week and obsessively look for changes, updates. I guess you could say I'm a bit of a progress junkie, too.

                        I'm the Conservationist, The Character Hugger, but must be Winnie the Pooh and his friends. And last but not least the Efficiency Expert.

                          Hmm...The Low-Key Nerd raises a deep philosophical question: If one is a Disneyland nerd, but no one can tell, is one really a Disneyland nerd?

                          I'll have to think about how to categorize this one. Maybe this is the Progressive Disneyland Nerd, as opposed to the Conservationist.

                              I am definitely a Hidden-Mickey-Hunter. I find myself going on the same ride a few times just trying to find them instead of actually enjoying the ride! And ... I have apps for my phone that give me clues, or flat out tell me, so I can hunt them down. (of course not actually during the rides ).
                              If at first you don't succeed: Skydiving is not the sport for you.

                              I'm really sad I don't have a cool list of all the times I've been to Disneyland.
                              Most recently: August 2011 (I got engaged!), October 2010, Summer 2008, October 2007, Summer 2005, December 2004 , Christmas 2003, Summer 1995, 1991 (I was only 5!)
