Have you been reading Micechat for years?
What have others freaked out over and you didn't, and
what have you freaked out over that others haven't.
(The reaction to Disneyland's price increase made me think of these questions.)
1. I lost it when the Big Thunder BBQ opened and the prices were much, much higher that what I thought were reasonable. I started threads on numerous Disney fan sites and wrote letters to different Disney leaders. (Some of the prices there did come down a tiny bit.)
1. When the waterfalls were removed from the Disneyland Hotel, many were hurt that part of their childhood was being aborted. I thought these falls with their smooth cement were boring and even depressing, and I was a bit insensitive when I stated so. Still sorry!
2. The Mickey & Friends parking lot. Just yesterday I admired the plants that hang off of the east side ledges. I think it's clean, attractive and well-designed for a parking lot and (unless there is a rare, unusually bad CM or two) impressively well run.
3. The additions to Small World. Though the Toy Story additions (especially Woody) look out of place to me,
I really like the country appropriate & Mary Blair-style Disney characters that have been added
with subtle music from their movies woven into the Sherman Bros. classic.
I still wish this ride would be sped up about 20-30%. If you want to take it all, just ride it twice.
4. The thought of poorer parents and their kids not being able get in reminds me of MLK describing the tears in his daughters eyes as she asked why they couldn't go to a segregated amusement park. (See his best thing ever written "Letter From Letter Birmingham Jail".) But, perhaps because I'm truly awful & increasingly callous about America's economic disparity, the economics of Disney Park prices really doesn't bother me as much as maybe it should. Maybe because I truly love Knott's and I think that anyone can afford that if they skimp and save,
a couple of Knott's Season Passes, with years in between of beach trips and extensive use of a library card seem great to me. So this might be a serious flaw of mine, but I rarely get annoyed when Disney raises theme park prices, but once I'm in the park I don't feel like I should be gouged for snacks and food. For some reason THAT really annoys me. (Nine dollar beers at the Renaissance Fair this year really p----d me off. No one in our large group had any, and the bells the servers ring when they are tipped seemed unusually silent this year.)
