    Does Disney really want their brand associated with such a negative word?

    Or -- now hear me out, this might be stupid but I just want to put it out there -- they could build a parking lot just south of the main gate!

    Re: Is There A Point Where the "Hassle" of Visiting the DLR Makes You Not Want To Go?

    Is there any way of discussing this without pointing fingers at one certain group of Disneyland lovers or another? I was hoping so.

    Maybe some fingers need to be pointed to Disney management and tda for decisions that have been made to improve their bottom line, but reduce the quality of the guest experience.

Much worse than waiting for the tram on the way in. On more than one occassion, we've waited for upwards of four or five trams. It may only be 15 or 20 minutes, but when you are that tired, it's a frigging eternity.

    And 45 minute lines are not my thing either, so generally we try to hit the park when it is not crowded.

    OH...FYI for anyone who is interested, I'll keep saying this until I am blue in the face. The gate off of Magic Way (Heading into DTD) RARELY has a large line. Last Saturday at 10 AM we were the ONLY car going in that way to Mickey and Friends.

    Just sayin.

    That's my point, but again I didn't want to make the discussion solely about that. But MC'ers will take this thread in whichever direction they will.

    I refuse to wait for 3 or 4 trams. I'll walk back to the car no matter how far I parked. D & F structure, Pumbaa, Gardenwalk doesn't matter, I'd rather walk than wait.

    Not all of us are the amazing physical specimen and hunk of man that you are though, Chad.

    I agree with you there, You can tell when your getting old, when your feet and your back hurt by lunchtime, when you get to the tram that hard seat feels so good with the wind blowing in your face, Then upon reaching your vehicle you hear a sweet symphony. I love sitting rolling down the windows and going ahhhhh. Getting old sucks.

    I'm in my mid-50's. woefully overweight, I have emphysema and I still walk both ways every visit. Aashee may be extraordibnarily fit (you have to be in order to tote that oversized ego around), but you don't need to be. It's not that far...

    PS Just kidding Chad, please don't hit me. Not like last time.
