I've been thinking a lot about posting a thread like this, and I finally decided to do it.
I love Disneyland. It's been a part of my 53-year plus life, forever. Plus, there's my nearly eight-year employment history.
I live two hours away. I did have a premium annual pass, but I had to let it lapse for personal financial reasons.
There's always been what I could call a "hassle factor" to one degree or another just getting to the front gates, from where you park your car. And with the old lot, getting a sun-baked car, or leaving the park at night.
But the more I've been reading about the crowding, the parking issues and the like...sometimes I feel like the "hassle factor" outweighs the overall diminished product I see once I get through the gates.
I would like your thoughts on this. And I can't control how a thread can go...but I'd rather not see any one group of DLR lovers getting "bashed".
No matter how close to the park we live or how many times we visit or what kind of ticket we use, we still love Disneyland, I think in spite of Disney and Team Disney Anaheim.
But it has become a lot more of a "hassle", from what I can see.
