I have been to Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom all at Disney World in Florida. I love Disneyland and Disney World like crazy and have a ton of family memories from both, but Disney World will always be special (especially Epcot) because it was the last trip I got to take with my dad.
18. Any other memories about Disneyland you'd like to share?
I could talk about memories at Disneyland for days, but I will share a few somewhat general things. This will probably get really geeky and corny, but whatever. I am a big Walt Disney/Disneyland history buff so I know a lot of the history about it and therefore am very sentimental about the fact that Walt Disney created a place where families can go that has something for everyone. I have a ton of memories at Disneyland and Walt Disney World with my parents. I have been at Disneyland on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve among other times. I know that at times these places get crowded, but I have actually found that it is so nice to visit with people you meet while standing in line or sharing a table or waiting for fireworks or whatever. Also the people who work at Disneyland as cast members are very friendly and interesting to talk to. I really agree with the idea that Disneyland is so much an American culture icon, but at the same time it such a great place to experience things with all sorts of people from all over the world. All these different people of all backgrounds and ages. are put together to experience riding pirate boats and singing "yo ho a pirate's life for me" or singing "it's a small world after all. I know it really sounds nerdy, but Disney has been such a important part of my background, that it has shaped my personality. Because of my time spent in the disney culture with my family I realize how important it is to believe in my dreams and to have hope for tomorrow. It is something that I try to share with people that I know and plan to share with my future children and husband.
