    I prefer not to think when I'm on vacation.

    ummm...my brain is always on. I suppose I go so I can think about other things besides the daily stresses of life, but the brain is still working...

    When I get stressed, I end up at Disneyland. It does make me forget what a crappy day I've had. So in effect, I guess it does turn my brain off. All I need to worry about is having fun!

    Turn on and watch the kids' imagination fire up at the sights, ideas, and obvious wonder of what DL is. My son and daughter just love the place. Doesn't hurt that their Dad is a Disney nut.

    I go there to escape my real life, which sucks.

    Whether that turns my brain on or off is up to debate

    I go to Disneyland to think of threads I will be able to post about it when I return to a computer.

    International, you seem quite angry. If you don't enjoy Pragmatic's threads, perhaps you'd enjoy other MiceChat threads?

    I go to Disneyland to be educated, mentally and artistically challenged, and entertained. I go to study the architecture; learn a little about landscaping, examine ancient technology. Going merely for "the rides" is the least of my interest, and often, when I had my AP, I wouldn't ride anything.

    While escape from the "real" world is part of the enjoyment, that "escape" is accomplished when I do the above; when I explore the deeper meaning in the Park, when I learn a little more about theme and story telling and archetypes. When I study the detailing that most pass right by.

    Disneyland is such a rich canvas that I really do feel bad for the folks that have no interest in the Park, other than to get FastPasses to be able to get on as many E tickets as possible. Those folks may find that Knott's or Magic Mountain is more enjoyable.

    I turn off the part of the my brain that thinks about all the chores I have to do. As an at home mom I find I often have to tell my kids to wait until after I'm done with chores to play with them. At DL I can forget about dinner, dishes, laundry, paperwork that's piled up, etc. We focus on having fun together. It's our monthly mini vacation.

    How do you figure International is angry? He didn't say he goes to DL to look for negative things to say, maybe he walks around looking for things to bring to the discussion? It seems like you might be reading a little much into this post.

    I go to relax and spend quality time with my kids without life's usual interruptions. I don't turn my brain off, I refocus it on what is most important at that time. My family.
    "He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side; if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion" --John Stuart Mill

    Disneyland is a great place to get away from, well, life suckiness.

    This is what I would have said if I were as eloquent as you, Thanks

    >>Do you go to Disneyland to turn-off or turn-on your brain?<<

    Both. To turn off my rational, analytical brain and day-to-day concerns and ego, but to turn on and stimulate my emotions, underultilized senses and imagination. Also to get a lite physical workout. I like to lap the park, soaking in the atmosphere while walking.

    Interesting question, PI.

    As a frequent purveyor of sarcasm, I think I can discern more than a bit of it in International's post.
