...that can't be found anymore?
Maybe everything was over before I was born, the day Walt died. Perhaps the Walt Disney Company was him. I don't know.
All I know is that I see Yesterland, and it's hard not to think it was better in every way.
True. We have many wonderful attractions today. Indiana Jones is great - no way something like it could have been done while Walt was alive.
But, to be honest, most of the things the Disney company has done suck. Hong Kong Disney - a park with no attractions. California Adventure, a park in search of a theme, decent attractions, and people. Disneyland Paris Studios, or whatever it is called - does it have any attractions at all?
Frankly, when I look at Disneyland, I'm really looking forward to the classics. The Haunted Mansion, the Pirates, It's a Small World (yep, I do). The Matterhorn. Stuff like that. As I said before, not everything that has been done afterwards is bad (Fantasyland is something I love, as Star Tours, or Splash Mountain). But the magic is slowly dying.
Take Tomorrowland. They should call it graveyardland. Nothing to see here, folks - at least nothing worthwhile, except for that old classic, Space Mountain. Sure, Buzz is nice, but it has nothing to do with the future. Innoventions is a cheap shopping mall without cash registers. HISTA is painful to even think about. Star Tours has been running without any improvements for.. what? 20 years or so?
I shudder to find out that I go to Disneyland not because of what it is now, but what it used to be and represent. I see what Disney has become, and I now realise I dislike it. I dislike the way they treat their employees, the low wages they pay, the crummy movies they produce, and their attitude.
But wow, how I still love Disneyland.
