The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.
I was not a big Disney fan until about 10 years ago when I took my kids to the DLR for the first time. I had never been and didn't really care if I ever went. I had a really bad Disney World experience as a kid and it sort of soured me on the whole idea of going back to any Disney park.
But alas, once I saw the park through the eyes of my children my whole outlook changed.
That was a rather interesting article, but as for a lot of the reasons he didn't like Disney isn't all that new. For instance, we all agree the water is a little pricey ($2.75 for Dasani?), and I really wish they would just release the classic movies with 2-discs and not every 5 years to commerate an anniversary. But other than that, I'm glad he had fun.
It is nice that he enjoys it because his kids enjoyed it also. He wasn't looking for everything wrong in the park.
"And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, " This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???
