I love, love, love Disneyland, especially now since the
introduction of Fast Passes (remember the days of standing in line for two hours
for Space Mountain?), healthier food options and charging stations in the
lockers. The moniker "Happiest Place on Earth" is 100 percent accurate, but
there are a few things about Disneyland that I find to be not so happy.
What's up with the moving conveyor belts to load and
unload rides? It's a good thing I take Lexapro, otherwise getting in and out of
the some of those rides would send me into an immediate panic attack.
2. They sell out of
the most popular toys
underestimate the popularity of their films and the country's insatiable thirst
for character-driven product because last year they ran out of Elsa and Anna
dolls, and this year there were no Baymax plush stuffies left only two weeks
after the release of "Big Hero 6."
3. No alcohol
Thank God, California Adventure has a "wine ride."
Would it kill the magical powers that be to put a little
moonshine booth in the middle of Frontierland? Or maybe a hurricane stand in
New Orleans Square? (I've heard there is a private club in Disneyland that
serves booze but I'm referring to some hooch for the regular folk.) Thank God, California
Adventure has a "wine ride" (aka a winery/restaurant that sells beer &
4. Poor cell phone
Now that cell phones are a fifth
appendage to most of us, how are we supposed to survive when there is no cell
service in several areas of the park? C'mon now, I need to be able to post to
Instagram at a moment's notice.
Oh man, this is going to be a source of contention
between several of my friends and me, but I cannot stand to see girls traipsing
around Disneyland with full-length princess gowns and Jonbenét Ramsey
makeup. I know that there are little girls that love it, but 1) it's
way pricey, and 2) they look like they are about to make a cameo on "Toddlers and Tiaras" instead of have a raging fun day at Disneyland.
