Re: how much do you love disneyland on a scale of 1-10
I'm not sure if I could toss out one number in generalization. Like Aashee, there are some aspects of the experience I would give a 10 to (excape from reality, even if for a bit), and some parts that would score a 1 or 2 (prices of food, crowds). But I have to admit, that since becoming a part of this site, Disney has become an even bigger part of my life in general.
If Disneyland ever shut down I would not know what to do with my life.
That seriously would be a life changing event for me as well. I think there is a strong likelihood that Disneyland might not be around in say.. 300 years. Like, just looking at what social things were around 300 years ago, probably Harvard is one of the few things that are actually still around and in existence essentially in their same form. Most things aren't and who knows what the world will be like 300 years from now. But then again, maybe I'm wrong, and maybe 300 years from now not only will we have all the Disney parks we have now, plus one in like India and one in Africa somewhere, but we'll also have a Disney park on the Moon and Mars!
But anyway.. to the question... I give Disneyland an 11! As far as like institutions and just man-made physical places in the world that you can go ... I have yet to visit and even read about or see any place that comes anywhere close to being as great and wonderful and special and unique and truly magical as Disneyland.
Words any Disney fan and especially Disney employee should live by:
"Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money."
"Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world."
"I do not like to repeat successes, I like to go on to other things."
"We did it, Disneyland, in the knowledge that most of the people I talked to thought it would be a financial disaster - closed and forgotten within the first year."
"It's kind of fun to do the impossible."
"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."
