FEARS ARE THE TOPIC OF THE DAY IN FRIDAY THE 13TH “WHAT SCARES YOU?” SURVEY
56 PERCENT OF U.S. ADULTS ADMIT THEY’VE FEARED MONSTERS!
-- Despite Fears, Disneyland Resort in California Welcomes Monsters --
Fears are the topic of the day every Friday the 13th and today is no exception. As part of the upcoming opening of its newest attraction, “Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!,” Disneyland Resort in southern California announced today results from its national “What Scares You?” survey conducted by Harris Interactive. When Disneyland asked some of today’s hottest celebrities “What Scares You?” they were surprised to learn that “Harry Potter” himself, Daniel Radcliffe, fears clowns while Jennifer Love Hewitt and Serena Williams are still afraid of monsters under their bed! The survey revealed that 56 percent of American adults* admit they fear, or have feared monsters. The Disneyland “What Scares You?” survey polled more than 4,000 adults (aged 18+) and 1,600 youth (aged 8 to 17) across the United States to gauge their biggest fears. A Monster’s Haven Disneyland’s “What Scares You?” survey found that 55 percent of youth and 43 percent of adults remember thinking that monsters were in or around their house. Where exactly? Many kids and teens thought monsters were in their closet (25 percent) or under their bed (21 percent), compared to adults who feared monsters were in their closet (20 percent) and/or under their bed (20 percent).
