  • Back from first trip in 30 years...

    Anybody interested in opinions from an old Disneyland vet that has gone back for the first time in 30 years? I am learning to download my pics for my real trip report, but in the interim would maybe like to share some thoughts (some good, some bad).

            As a guy who was working in the park 30 years ago, I'd love to "see" your comments and pics, and I can hardly wait for them!

                  I'm guessing you had the interesting experience of visiting a familiar ol' friend... and somewhere completely different, all at the same time. I'm looking forward to your report.

                    OK.... I think I will share a few things that I didn't like first, BECAUSE the Trip Report to come will be filled with one of the best 6 days I have had in my 43 years, and included my daughters (3 1/2 years old) first trip, and lets just say she loved EVERY ride (HM and POtC being her favorites)! Most importantly, the MAGIC lives on... it is alive and well!

                    So.... before this trip my last visit was on May 3rd 1977. This trip We arrived Sunday April 29th 2007!

                    Winnie the Pooh (please give me back the bears), Buzz, Roger Rabbit, Monsters Inc., are garbage people, well in my opinion they are. I mean how much fluorescent paint and black lights does it take to try and make me believe that it is a well done attraction? CHEAPO! Now I know a lot of the Fantasyland rides have this look and feeling too, but they are originals from 1955. I'm sorry, but I was less than impressed. I know Buzz had the competition factor built in, which was fun... but the ride visually is a dud.

                    Tower of Terror.... OVERRATED!

                    Corn Dog Castle Corn Dogs... not just OVERRATED... but also GROSS.

                    Monte Cristo... GOOD... but OVERRATED!

                    Mint Julip..... whatever

                    You know, there are probably a few more things, in fact I know there are. I am thinking about them right now, but I am done with the bad. Get ready, here comes the report and the pics of our GREAT visit to Disneyland and DCA.

                        I'm going to enjoy this. Didn't visit DL at all between 1989 and 2005, so I'll be curious to see if a lot of your reactions to "new" stuff resonate with mine.

                          Sad to say, I pretty much agree.

                              It's "bated breath", and this is where it comes from: http://www.straightdope.com/mailbag/mbated.html
