The world has sure changed since I was born. I am older than some of you, and perhaps a bit younger than a few. I can't walk down the street in my city of Chicago without seeing people talking on their cell phones. I was crossing the street one day, and the driver stopped his car over the crosswalk. I motioned for him to backup, so I could cross safely. He wasn't paying attention to me because he was using his phone. Most likely sending a text. The majority of people seem to be permanently attached to their phones. Hey some houses don't even have land lines anymore, because each member of the family has their own cell phone. The world seems to revolve around it.
All this talk about Magic Bands, and Fastpass Plus, got me to thinking. Could you, or could I, for that matter spend a day at Disneyland, and/or Disney World without a cell phone. Cell phones are great for what they do. It used to be that a phone was just for making phone calls. Nowadays, phones/cellphones in particular, do so much more. They are a costly part of most people's monthly budgets.
I recently bought an iPhone, and I marvel at what it does. However, I turn it off on occasion, and I don't always have it with me. I use the alarm on it, to wake me up from time to time. I check my mail on it. I have even put this new My Disney Experience App on it for my up and coming trip to Disney World. It contains a lot of vital information that I may need while vacationing at Disney World.
Now back to my question.
Could I spend a day at Disneyland/WDW without my cellphone?
I think I could, especially at Disneyland. I usually turn my phone off when I am traveling. Disneyland has been mentioned as a place where you can escape the outside world. I, for one, would love to spend a day at Disneyland without the interruption of the cell phone explosion.
