  • Most Magical things at the Disney Parks?

    A majority of the time, if you ask that question, people will respond with the parade and/or the fireworks.

    Let's pretend. There are no parades or fireworks at either of two parks in California.

    So what other magical things, keep you coming back to Disneyland?

    For you cynics out there - remember there are times when theme parks do not show either parades or fireworks, and the visitors still come.

    So share your magical moments here.

    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

      We just really enjoy the "escape". My life is quite hectic and DL (with all the sounds, smells and especially the lighting) is an awesome place to hide...

        Definitely the "escape" for me too. Like I have a huge portfolio tomorrow, but I'm going to work solid from now until 7:45 pm, then I'm going to head out to walk down Main Street, see the fireworks, and come back home to do some more work.

          Probably walking down Main Street, then getting something to eat. :0
          Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

            I really like this topic, especially the way you phrased your questions. Here's what initially came to my mind:

            Magical moments at Disneyland usually cannot be forced or pre-planned. Instead, they usually occur serendipitously. I can remember an amazing moment as I stood on the third level of the Mark Twain one late afternoon and caught a glimpse of a breathtaking sunset. Or another time when I saw a mother cry after her developmentally disabled son was picked by Merlin to be the next Sword in the Stone sorcerer. And every time I visit the park, countless children hug their favorite character with great love.

            Disneyland is a celebration of childhood innocence. I make countless returns to the park because if I look close enough, I can glimpse an ideal childhood that exists only in fanstasy books, and I can reflect back upon my own past with wonderous nostolgia. That, IMO, is magical.

              Cute CMs, baby!
              And the characters!
              And the taffy!
              And the rides????
              Good morning, son
              In twenty years from now
              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
              And I can tell you 'bout today
              And how I picked you up and everything changed
              It was pain
              Sunny days and rain
              I knew you'd feel the same things...

                I experienced the most magical sight *EVER* of any Disney park at Disneyland. It was the beginning of the DL 30th anniversary all nighter party on July 17th, 1985. Right at midnight, a colorful rainbow was lit up into the nightime sky behind Sleeping Beauty Castle as Tinkerbell flew over it sprinkling golden pixie dust! it was BREATHTAKING! Any one else here attended this event???

                  I can only pick just one?

                  I would have to say it's just the...the vibe I get as soon as I walk through that turnstile, under the DRR tracks and see Main Street for the first time. I always feel as if I never left, even if months have gone by. Not to jump on a cliche, but I always DO feel like I'm coming home when I go to Disneyand. I think the most magical thing is that I just can't stop smiling until my face hurts when I get there. For me that's better than fireworks any day!

                    For me it is just the feelig of being in the park I too feel like I am home when I am at DL... it is a place where the outside world cant get to you and all of your troubles are gone as soo as you walk under thoes tracks... Here you leave the world of today and evnter the world of yeaterday tomarrow and fantasy... it is the best things that could be written above there...

                      The lighting in Frontierland. I love those "lanterns", the way they flicker. I like the way light is used as a "character" in each particular setting in which its used.

                        There's something about walking down Main Street at dusk, going into the Emporium (or grabbing an ice cream) and coming back out to see all the lights turned on. Ahhhhh.

                          THE Most Magical thing? More than ANY ride or attration, event or scenery...

                          Look Down.

                          Seeing the looks on Kids faces as they see it. Whatever they are looking at. Waiting in anticipation for a ride. Watching a parade, Seeing thier favorite character. Winding up thier day with the Fireworks. Just enjoying a moment of being there. it is in thier faces i see the true magic of Disneyland

                          THEY are the true heart of Disneyland.

                              I agree! I'm sure I'm not the only one here who gets chills when I read the plaque above the tunnels:

                              Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.

                              What are the pumping into the Anaheim air, anyway?
