My goddaughter, who is not even two yet, is going to Disneyland for her birthday. When my aunt and uncle adopted her, it was agreed that she would not go until she was three. Then, a few months ago, she fell in love with Minnie, and we figured, "Well, 3 years old should be okay." Now I hear my uncle, her father is going to take her for her 2nd birthday next month. My aunt, who knows how I feel about this, said, "But we're only gonna take her to Fantasyland and Toontown..." Here is my problem:
1. She is entirely too young, that simple. I (though biased, but not the only person who thinks so) agree that for her age and previous circumstances (she's adopted from China, just so you know, lots going on there), but she is not at all ready for such a censory overload. (I know I'm asking for it with this, but this is how I feel)
2. "it's only fantasyland and toontown"???? Isn't that the bulk of it the first time you go as a kid???
3. She has not even seen Disney movies very much. It's taken her a while to get into 2-D animation, so in that, she's a little behind (Not my fault, I swear). The only Disney movie (full-length animated feature, not just DVD compilations, etc.) she has seen was half of Dumbo and that was with me!!!
Sorry, I just had to vent where I thought appropriate...
