Went to the park last night to ride Thunder on preview night, and as I was walking into the park I took note of the plaque that reads, "Here you leave the world of today..."
It sort of took me back to that time when the magic of the park was left inside the park, including costumes.
I'm sure they might have their reason for doing it, but I think it was so much more effective when everything was left behind the berm, including the costumes.
When you passed through the tunnels, you were experiencing something special on the other side. The real world was behind you.
I think seeing costumes at the grocery store, walking down Harbor Blvd. etc, takes something away from it
And don't get me started on the facial hair. Just can't get used to it.
We'll leave that for another thread though.
