I haven't been to Disneyland since 2001, when it was undergoing serious growing pains, yet still maintained some of its 1950s charm. It had yet to become bloated by the various cancerous influences of movies like "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Cars"
Even as a kid, I rarely went to Disneyland with my family - and as a teenager and young adult would only visit if a friend had free passes. It's difficult for me to relate to the adult fascination with all things Disney - and it's even more difficult for me to see Disneyland as "The Happiest Place On Earth" - to deep thinkers, Disneyland has always epitomized the plastic commercialized version of "happy" (unless you're one of the millions who've dropped acid or attended the park whilst drunk)
Plus it's hard to believe people will shell out $92 for a single one day pass. And it's rarely mentioned, but the surrounding neighborhoods adjacent to Disneyland are poor, crumbling eyesores...filled with gangs and gang violence. It's not 1959 anymore. PS - I can't speak to the neotonous glories of DisneyWorld, etc
