This newspaper reporter from Utah flies out to Anaheim. She visits Disneyland and California Adventure for the first time in her life. And guess what? She has fun! She doesn't make note of thematic problems or muddled marketing campaigns. She doesn't complain about bad show or a theme park built on the cheap. She does make the occasional factual error--my favorite is how she tries to refer to DHS by it's old name, but calls it "MGM Grand" instead. But none of that changes her enjoyment of her first trip to this magical place.
My first, long-awaited, much anticipated, wonderful trip to ... Disneyland
(Deseret News, March 2)
With all the threads discussing problems with the parks, problems with theme, bad show, and lots of armchair imagineering, it's sometimes refreshing to see that people can enjoy their trips. I'm not saying that we should ignore or not talk about these problems! This is a Disney-related message board after all. We should be talking about these issues and our ideas for possible improvements. But every now and then, I think we forget how great a place the Disneyland Resort is. Reading this story made me remember how lucky we are to have a place like this to visit.
