It takes a special kind of person to truly understand and fully love Disneyland. It's such a special place, in all its aspects. The charm and beauty is unmatched, even by other Disney parks. I think that the very design of Disneyland is based on generating positive feelings. Walt’s opening speech so perfectly depicts what Disneyland is.
For most of us, time moves too quickly, and that's what is so great about Disneyland. Like Walt said, "Here age relives fond memories of the past". When we enter those gates, we all can turn back time. In a world that is so fleeting, Disneyland gives us the ability to reconnect with our past and relive that same joy and happiness that made us fall in love with Disneyland when we were children. I believe, that single fact is what separates those who love Disneyland, and those who can never understand it. Most adults lack the ability to remember what it was like to be young and innocent. So many people I talk to about Disneyland miss the point of Walt's dream entirely. To Quote my brother, "If some one ever starts off with, 'well the rides...' you know they will never be able to really love Disneyland". People’s lack of attention span leads them to be blinded by flashy shows of loops and twist and end up losing out on the greatest joy and thrill of all, being a child at heart! There is nothing greater than getting yelled at by a cast member for running down Main Street, or laughing so loud you draw the attention of everyone near you. It is said that youth is wasted on the young, but Walt managed to even the playing field, but only for those who are young at heart!Originally Posted by Walt
