Is Disneyland Over-rated?

Have you been to Disneyland yet?

Nowadays, finding out that someone you know has never been to Disneyland is not only shocking but also heartbreaking. To know that someone has never walked along Main Street or taken a picture with his or her favorite character is a modern-day tragedy.

But looking back, is that person really missing out on the fatiguing journey that seems to slip our minds at the happiest place on earth?

Arguably the most frustrating aspect of Disneyland is the amount of people there.

Wherever you go it seems as if a massive crowd is always following you. Not to mention that the abundance of people results in hour-long lines for two-minute rides.

Dodging bulky strollers and large groups of people becomes utterly exhausting after 30 minutes and once you factor in the possible weather conditions, especially heat, waiting in line at Disneyland could seem like agonizing torture.

Not only are there far too many people at Disneyland, but there also happens to be the worst people around. Every type of obnoxious person is present. There are the impolite teenagers who bump into you without apologizing, mobs of clueless families unknowingly taking up too much space, spoiled children who throw tantrums in the middle of your pathway, rude employees, and so much more.

Another annoyance apart of the Disneyland experience is how excessively overpriced everything is.

A one-day park hopper ticket is $169, not including food, drinks, and/or merchandise.

The accumulated cost of the aforementioned items are so expensive that, if you were to visit Disneyland and California Adventure for one day, you might have to set aside around $200- $300 to pay for items that you want, not including your ticket.

Since the food is so expensive, it would be safe to assume that you are eating high-quality cuisine, right? Wrong. Along with being ridiculously overpriced, most of the meals at Disneyland are nothing spectacular.

In addition, even the limited selection of entrées that are actually good are remarkably more expensive than their other mediocre meals.

Reading this list may compel you to think negatively of Disneyland. However, there is a reason why people from all around the world pay an absurd amount of money, wait in lines which seem to have no end, and put up with the annoying people there.

 

 

There is something to be said about the whimsical adventure that is being at Disneyland.

The fact that it is superior to University Studios and Six Flags is undeniable.

Although it may be somewhat overrated or glorified, Disneyland will forever be a place where your inner child can flourish. It might not be worth the money, but you can truly see the amount of effort and detail that Disney puts into its amusement parks.
