I had a strange experience a few months back. POTC had just undergone it's big changes and as I got off the ride, a little sadly, I realized I didn't need to come back to Disneyland. And I haven't.
I've been mulling this over for awhile now (I had the Premium pass for a number of years and often would visit three or four times a month) and this is what I've come up with: Disneyland was a place of nostaligia. As all of my childhood homes have disappeared (military brat and such), DL was the one place that had remained mostly the same.
One by one, all of the rides I connected with as a child have disappeared or changed (the Skyway, Swiss Family Robinson's Treehouse, the Sleeping Beauty Walkthru, changes to Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, Pirates, etc.) No matter how much "better" the improvements may or may not have been, they made it "different" and slowly distanced me from my nostalgia.
I know that I am in the minority and the general public loves what is going on, but is there anyone out there who has had a similar experience? A moment when the changes got to be too much? What happened? What was your tipping point?
