Just read a fun trip report and when they got to talking about Magic Kingdom it was just endless slamming and comparisons of how Magic Kingdom anything isn't as good as Disneyland. Magic Kingdom in Disneyland lover's eyes just treat Magic Kingdom as incomparable to Disneyland.
Why does nearly every Disneyland visitor to Magic Kingdom feel the need to yet again tell everyone how Magic Kingdom isn't Disneyland. Does it make Disneyland lovers happy to always rip apart Magic Kingdom? I can't tell anymore.
It's NOT DISNEYLAND. It's Magic Kingdom. It doesn't have to be Disneyland. All it has to be is just Magic Kingdom.
Disneyland lovers who visit MK just slam MK's rides and/or attractions for not being as good as or better than Disneyland. What if all of Magic Kingdom's rides/attractions were suddenly better than Disneyland, would Disneyland be getting slammed forever and a day because it's not as good as MK?
I just don't understand the reasoning behind every Disneyland visitor to Magic Kingdom detailing how this isn't as good as Disneyland's version. It just bothers me, not sure why.
All I can say is that I first visited Magic Kingdom when I was around 11 years old. It was my first Disney Park experience. I revisited Magic Kingdom a few more times before finally visiting Disneyland for my first time just 2 years ago during the 50th Celebration.
Now when I was there I didn't trash the park in my mind, I thought the castle was small compared to Magic Kingdom but then learned why it was built a certain size and what it means to Walt. I just didn't feel the need to trash, slam, bash Disneyland in anyway and forever compare it to Magic Kingdom.
I treat them as 2 parks, different from one to the other. I treat both Space Mountains as 2 fun experiences. I treat both Splash Mountains as 2 fun different experiences. I treat both Tower of Terrors as 2 very fun different experiences. I freakin' love both versions of Pirates at both parks. I love both for what they are, great rides with great differences.
I don't expect much like others, I just expect a good time and I always get it.
I have never ONCE thought this ride/attraction is better than the other. I'm just happy I have 2 different versions of rides/attractions to enjoy inside the United States.
Now you see where I'm coming from and why I just don't understand the need to bash Magic Kingdom's rides/attractions.
I'd also LOVE TO KNOW why Disneyland Visitors/Lovers feel the need to talk down about Magic Kingdom's rides/attractions. What does this kind of talk or views do for the MiceChat community. What is the purpose of a collective Disneyland community slamming Magic Kingdom's flaws and why it isn't as good as Disneyland.
Discuss. Explain. Defend. Inform. Entertain. Talk.
