    Well, obsolescence is the father of nostalgia, and Disneyland is in large part based on nostalgia. How can we miss something if it never goes away? Then there is the "meta-nostalgia" that many of us feel for the way things used to be at Disneyland itself.

    Great post, Werner! just missing some birds on the wire on the photo on the right.

    And just how much Paradise Pier was SO MUCH tackier than anything on Katella, prior to DCA! HAHAHAHA!

    Now Katella has a view of a huget tacky looking roller coaster.

    So true. And I have a closet full of clothes just waiting!

    Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!
