  • I dream of Disneyland...

    Last night I had a dream that I went to DL. Really! I still have the details pretty fresh in my mind.

    It wasn't really a fully detailed trip with me lugging around a camera and what-for, but more of just a one-day visit since I happened to be in the area. I remember walking down Main Street and sitting at one of the benches by the hub (I haven't been to the park in so long that it still hasn't really registered with me yet that Carnation is closed.) For some reason, things seemed a little off with the castle being a bit more to the left than where it usually is and I did see some sort of overlay visible above the treetops, but it wasn't the real 50th overlay but something else, it was a very blueish-silver color. I thought it wasn't the greatest look but it was fine as long as it was temporary.

    There was some sort of ride in the hub for some reason. It was a real off the shelf thrown-together piece of junk that resembled a bit of a high-speed carousel but with various Disney vehicles instead of horses or sleds. It was otherwise very unthemed with lots of industrial-looking steel visible, but the people all around it seemed to enjoy it and be having a good time.

    I then walked across the way to DCA and it was still sometime in the early afternoon when I went in. In real life, I've never been to DCA yet, but I've seen the photos and read the horror stories, and boy was my dream DCA a horror story. I looked around a bit and saw some shops and stuff but didn't really have much of anything to do. I couldn't see ToT for some reason and wandered over by the winery area until for some reason I found myself in a dark room that felt like some kind of hub to the other areas of the park, and people were going to and fro all over the place. If hell had a train station, it would look like this, as the room was pitch black with light-up signs pointing every which way and some person sitting at an information desk that was a good foot above eye level, making it feel like you were talking to God themselves.

    I decided to head towards the direction of the S.S Rustworthy area because I was hungry and remembered the Mickey D's "Burger Invasion." I went in that direction and eventually found a neon Burger Invasion sign but the area around it looked like some kind of Doctor's waiting room with a bunch of people waiting in single file and more people sitting around in chairs reading Time. A CM came up and told me that this was some kind of registration line and that the next room over was the real burger joint. I followed her and found myself in a snazzy looking room with purple walls and neon colors zipping every which way.

    I was not allowed to order a burger, however, because first they wanted to sell me merch. I swear that I am not making this up. This place was not just a food spot, but they managed to PUT A CLOTHING STORE in the gosh-darn burger stand and were now sitting me down on a bench, and putting various Disney gear on me and telling me how much it cost and how I looked so much better wearing thing ridiculous stuff that nobody would want to be seen in outside the park. Around the time they took off my shoes and slipped my feet into some brightly colored "Hidden Mickey" shoes (they had two mouse ear shapes sprouting up from the toes making it look like you had some kind of deformed hoof) I told them that I really didn't want anything after all and please put me in my regular clothes. I was so upset by this whole experience that I did not order a burger.

    Because dreams are weird, by the time I finally left the restaurant/store/merch outlet, it was nighttime. I looked at my map and realized that there weren't any rides, all the attractions were simply observational passerby stuff to look at when not spending money. I was exhausted and now out of money thanks to being sold pins and shirts and mouse-shaped shoes all day at DCA, and I just wanted to go home.

    Ever dream of going to Disneyland? I hope your experience is better than mine!

    This was NOT a dream. Somehow, you were transported into Paul Pressler's and Cynthia Harris' mind. Thank goodness you were able to exit unharmed. Back away from the plush. You're safe. Put down the souvenir pin and come with us.

    When you wish upon a star your dreams come true.
