Disneyland

Was surprisingly fun today.

I went with a friend born and raised here in LA.

What my cynical mind thought Disneyland was:

  • Crowded;
  • Intense;
  • Loud;
  • Childish;
  • Overpriced;
  • Overrated…

What it delivered:

  • Warmth;
  • Fun;
  • Surprise;
  • Nostalgia;
  • Love…

Yes, it was crowded. But I was with an insider. We were able to find new paths and fast lanes and used our time really well while still found time sitting down to enjoy ice-cream cones…

It was worth it.

Here is the pro tip:

  • No expectations.
  • Be open and ready for the journey.

Which also works for my journey back home.

 

Yours truly,
