Quoted from rotordave:
Disneyland has gone to shit.
It used to be so cool, but now it’s all about the money.
They took out all the classic rides/attractions, and replaced them with shitters. My Mrs is a big Disney fan, and she doesn’t even want to go there any more.
When they took out the Country Bears, and replaced them with that crappy Winnie the poo kids ride, that was the last straw.
When Knotts tickets are $35 and Disney tickets are $129, that tells the story.
And get off my lawn. Lol
Yeah you pretty much nailed it. That Winnie The Pooh ride sucks. I’m always imagining imagineers sitting around painting onto wood cutouts made with a jigsaw, wondering what happened to their lives. The only highlight of the ride is twisting around to look up at what’s left of Country Bear.
I don’t know how much of it is get off my lawn or long lost nostalgia but the whole place seems rotten tHese days. My memories of the 70s are all of fun times there, but as has been pointed out most of the cool stuff is long gone. Sure you still have Pirates and Haunted Mansion, and surely I still enjoy going on those despite the fact I have done them about a thousand times. We won’t even mention the changes made to both of those rides over recent years....
Other than that I dread it every time I have to go there, which is a lot. There’s nothing worse than living right near it and with a bunch of annual pass holders who can’t ever seem to get enough of the place.
That said, I haven’t been to the new a Star Wars land yet. I don’t have a particular burning desire to go there but it will happen sooner than later. And I’m a big Star Wars fan. Those 3 Star Wars movies they made are great!
