    "An Invitation to Disneyland"

    Come, one and all, and enjoy the spectacle!
    Of fun, enchantment, and parades electrical
    Give a "howdy" to Mickey and Minnie Mouse
    Ascend the heights of Tarzan's Treehouse
    There's lots of familiar Characters to greet
    Many can be seen strolling up Main Street
    Take a ride on a Mountain called "Splash"
    And...remember to bring plenty of cash!

    "Group of Friends at Disneyland" (Nov. 14, 2006)

    I was running though Mainstreet in quite a fury
    I wasn't looking and suddenly my vision got blurry.

    I got off my butt and wiped my hands,
    I had smashed into a red glowing popcorn stand.

    The cast memeber told me to watch were I was going
    but I had little time because it began snowing.

    I didn't want to be late and get left behind
    I hate being alone riding through a collapsing mine.

    A lady blocked my path talking to her friend from Vancouver
    The crowd was huge so I had to perform an evasive manuver.

    I escaped to our meeting place with out a hitch
    But found they had a change of heart, and a ride switch.

    From the entrance of Big Thunder Mountain we again raced.
    With an odd number of people, the last was going to be displaced.

    I crossed Main Street with little to no fuss at all
    but saw a fellow friend caught in a crowd, and reduced to a crawl.

    Sure of victory I walked to Space
    only to find him there before me, laughing in my face.

    The five others we were with had already got in line.
    To the second rocket of the train I had been assigned.

    I heard them ahead of me joyously screaming with fright.
    I shielded my eyes and heard them get blinded by the photo light.

    After we stumbled out into the cold night air.
    They decided to wander the park without a care.

    I told them to meet me in ten minutes by Indy
    I put on my jacket as it was getting quite windy.

    I grabbed a snack but the line was a little long.
    I barely made it on time so nothing was wrong.

    Once I arrived my cousin nearly did a flip.
    She saw me holding a pineapple whip.

    I ate what I wanted and the others almost had a hissy fit
    seeing as how she took the rest and had nearly killed it.

    After we made it out of the temple of the forbidden eye.
    We decided it was time for us to say goodbye.

    Together we walked down the center of a decorated Main Street.
    We were stumbling and laughing because of our aching feet.

    We gathered in front of the Giant christmas tree.
    We had our picture taken and went out with glee.

    Together we boarded the tram to take us to our car.
    Some of us fell asleep even though it wasn't that far.

    We exited the tram and dragged ourselves to our car's floor.
    Once at the top I increased my pace, my goal, the van's front-right door.

    It seems the others had not been aware
    but my friend was watching me to my despair.

    He passed me with ease and began to run.
    Before he could beat me, I screamed Shotgun.

    I Smiled as I heard loud laughter from some nearby park staff.
    He beat me at everything to day, but I was going to have the last laugh.
    My campus elevator smells like burned hair and won't drop faster than the pull of gravity, no matter how much I scream.

    "The Memories"

    The memories I love aren't even mine,
    the ones I cherish are back in time.

    My Mom standing with original Mousketeers,
    pigtails, yellow hoodie, and mouseears.

    The smile she had stays on my mind,
    when I think of Disneyland in rewind.

    The rides and attractions I'll never get to see,
    those dreams of mine that will never be.

    The thought of going to Disneyland,
    where you might possibly bump into "The Man".

    The man who thought this whole theme,
    of fantasy, future, and wonderful dreams.

    The little thoughts and memories,
    and the reason millions of people smile and beam.

    Doesn't rhyme, so it can't win, but if you want to read it anyway... :)

    Well, this doesn't rhyme, so it doesn't qualify as a contest entry, but I hope you don't mind if I post it up here anyway, because there are so few places to share one's Disneyland-related poetry, and I got real excited when I saw this thread .

    If I do come up with a rhyming one, I'll post it here.

    This was written 4 years ago, when I was just starting to get back into going to DL.

    BTW, no offense to any Anaheim residents with the mention of the "disturbingly average" Harbor Boulevard. I just mean in comparison to DL. There's Denny's, IHOP, and McDonalds on Harbor - stuff from the "real world", stuff that's also in my hometown - and I was referring to the feeling of seeing those kind of things right after being in the park.

    A daub of equine excrament
    Not yet swept up
    Adds a pungant aire
    Of magic realism
    To the molded mellowness
    Of Main Street

    **************************************

    Striding o'er the chain of the overcrowded queue
    And off
    To peer into pleasure portals
    (With all the other mortals)
    Foraging instant gratification

    **************************************

    Real, live crows
    Perched obliviously atop
    Flat cartoon hills

    **************************************

    Actual, genuine tears
    Rushing down the flumes of your cheek
    To drip into a perpetual frontier river
    (Populated
    With more real, live birds,
    Who came for the magic of
    Tourists with popcorn)
    To Jackson Pollack into
    That preplanned "frontier river"
    As you
    Sit there
    In a chair
    There
    For no apparent reason

    **************************************

    Your Hotel Clerk
    Jolly and jumpy as a nearly caught leprechaun,
    Saying, "I'll let you think it over"
    As he
    Adjourns
    To your bathroom
    Chatting,
    By Tinkerbell-tiny cell phone,
    With his gatekeeper girlfriend
    Whom, he says, can secure you
    More powerful passports
    If you only meet her at Denny's
    And greet her with the code words:
    "Que Pasa?"

    *****************************************

    Hopping
    A jesterishly jarring
    Roller coaster car
    Before traversing the terrors
    Of leaping -
    Unharnessed -
    From the back of a carousel seahorse

    *****************************************

    Across
    The disturbingly average Harbor Blvd.
    A smooth, firm IHOP table
    Supports your dreaming head
    Quite well...
    The vaccum surrounding you
    Interrupted only by vaccuming
    Accompanied by
    A shockingly sincere
    "Oh, sorry to wake you!"
    "Well," you think,
    "The magic can cross the street!"

    This I Know

    My first trip to Disneyland
    Was when I was young,
    My friends had all spoke of it
    I knew it was fun.


    We drove through this gate
    With the words overhead,
    DISNEYLAND in huge letters
    Was all that it said


    We rode on a train
    And had lunch in a skull.
    We saw all the characters
    I knew them quite well.


    As we drove out of the parking lot
    I looked back through tears.
    I knew Iíd be back someday
    Even if it took years.


    Many years later
    I walked through those gates.
    Holding my hand was my daughter
    She barely could wait.


    We walked through a castle
    Spun around in tea cups.
    We rode ever ride we could think of
    It never felt like enough.


    As we walked out to the parking lot
    Our daughter asleep in Dadís arms,
    I knew Iíd be back someday
    To share more of itís charms.


    Now it seems like a lifetime
    Since I first walked through.
    Now I have taken my grandkids
    Five, four, and two.


    We rode those same teacups
    But the skull is no more.
    We saw scary pirates
    And heard ghosts behind doors.


    Since the first time I went there
    And I saw DISNEYLAND.
    Nothing has really changed
    It was all in his plan.


    The park is still growing
    But the love is still there.
    The characters are still smiling
    We know Walt still cares.


    So years down the road
    With Great Grandkids in tow.
    It will still be the Happiest Place on Earth
    This I know.

    TODAY


    Today is the day that thousands will cheer
    as they pass through the gates to the place we hold dear.

    Down the street of our town past the fire brigade
    Perhaps a few will look up where respects should be paid
    To the light in the window that burns to this day.


    They'll drive into a cave dark as night
    with a choice to be made do you head left or head right?


    They'll sail a great ship or get spooked by a queen
    While a trip in a teacup might leave them quite green.


    Today is the day as it is everyday
    In the house that Walt built
    where we all come to play.
    "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect."
