    People in California are lucky to have Disneyland so close by.

    That's very true. In fact, every time I think of moving somewhere else the two things that keep me here are Disneyland and In N Out. Oh, and family I guess.

    That's why I can't ever move out of CA, too!

    I haven't tried Storyteller's yet; I'll have to head over the next time I'm at the parks. Thanks for the heads-up!!

    the main street music is SO disneyland to me! It is the perfect music- when I am at work and missing disneyland, I find a mainstreet loop to listen to... when I'm stressed at work or because of work I prefer to listen to music without words, like classical.... or mainstreet music lol. It just reminds me of entering the park for the first time that day and being so excited, and of leaving so tired and happy.

    Re: The Positivity Thread

    Thank you for starting this thread! It is a breath of fresh air! From the moment I walk through the entrance gates, I feel myself changing and just becoming more relaxed and happy. Going to Disneyland is a magical experience for me. I love the simple things, like walking down Main Street and enjoying all the beautiful vegetation, particularly the flowers throughout the park. I've often just sat on a bench on Main Street or over by the shooting gallery and have read a book on my Kindle. I don't think any place does a better job with atmosphere than Disney and they totally ace the holidays!!! That is my favorite time of year to visit.

    I agree, the food has improved through the years. I enjoy most of the dining options and there are a few items, like the Black Forest Cupcake at the Village Haus, or the fried chicken at the Plaza Inn that I have to eat on each trip.

    Someone else already mentioned Maynard. He is a gem!! I like to visit the Tiki Room when he's there.

    Disney is also does the best fire works shows. I never tire of seeing them.

    Re: The Positivity Thread

    Great thread idea, Big D.

    I visited the parks on Sunday, and it always makes me happy that most all of the CMs are cheery and upbeat and do little things to make my day extra special. For example, the female CM at the turnstile checking tickets didn't have to refer to me as a princess (after all, I am a 29 year old woman), but she did. And the CM who took our drink order at Carthay didn't have to be so friendly, but she was. Yes, perhaps Disneyland CMs are supposed to be extra nice and do the things that make your day more magical. But the fact that they do it, and the fact that there are so few places you can go and experience something similar is something that makes the Disney parks as wonderful as they are.

    Yes they are but I consider ourselves to be pretty lucky in a similar regard..
    We're only a two hour flight from the park which means without getting up too early, we can be at the turnstiles by 10:00 AM! Early enough to enjoy a whole day at the park!

    I always have to figure two travel days into my plans, when I fly to California from Chicago. My flight takes between four and five hours.

    So I always plan my trips for about a week's time. Positively wonderful.

    Re: The Positivity Thread

    Although I love having the freedom involved with an annual pass, there is also a different type of liberation when you have to make more of an effort to come. I think it makes the time at Disneyland more precious, and makes you more likely to spend more time there, the way Barbaraann will spend a week there at a time. Strangely, I'm a little jealous of that!

    (But not enough to move away )

    Re: The Positivity Thread

    I've been on both sides of the spectrum of having vs. not-having a pass and both have perks. I loved being able to go to the parks whenever I wanted and never took a moment of it for granted. But, I did miss the excited feeling of checking into a hotel room, waking up super early and getting into the parks when they opened. Now that we've moved far away again I miss being at the parks all the time but it is SO exciting to be able to plan a trip back.

    We're not lucky.
    We moved here on purpose BECAUSE of its being here!

    The music - I listen to my Disneyland soundtracks constantly. I also love the 40's on 4 station on Sirius because, for whatever reason, 40's music reminds me of Disneyland and just makes me smile.

    The cast members - I will never forget the genuine "CONGRATULATIONS" and bear hug a CM gave me when she read my shirt - "This girl is going to be a mommy". It made me cry (I was hormonal, but still).

    The snowfall after the Christmas fireworks - Makes me choke up every time.

    The ducks - I just love them.

    The sound that the machine makes when your ticket is scanned - you're actually THERE!

    PS - I absolutely adore this thread!!

    Thank you to Poisonedapples for my awesome signature!

    By the way, if you're a fan of the ducks, this is the time of year when the babies are born, so you can probably find a momma duck with all of her baby ducklings following her around near the Rivers of America this month.
