This reader comment almost sounds like me and made me laugh too:
"When there's an 'adults only' day, I'll might give it another try. The concentration of screaming kids, the waiting in lines (even with the fast pass), and the general plasticity of the entire place makes it an endurance test."
I just can't help myself though; I love Disneyland.

OK, I haven't been to the park in a while, but, um, where is this?

|As we all know, there are no topiaries near the Twain. It's called lazy writing, and there were a couple more examples too. But I've certainly seen far worse. |

|Not a terrible article, but certainly not the most truthful either. Typical jaded-adult-goes-to-Disney-and-has-a-great-time-despite-himself article that comes out every few months. It would be nice if he double checked his writing, but accuracy of facts doesn't seem to be a high priority in journalism these days, so why not just go with it...|
>>Soarin’ Over California, one of the newer rides in California Adventure, is in some ways tailor-made for grown-ups...<<
Maybe I'm a little off-base here, but isn't Soarin' one of the not-newer (by any standard) attractions at DCA? I could see them calling Carsland new, or Mermaid, or, heck, even TOT, but not Soarin'.
>>Pay attention to footwear. Comfortable shoes and no high heels. Ever.<<
Really?! I know New Yorkers are dumb, but really? Haven't they seen Modern Family?

I took that to mean newer than the classics like Pirates or Space Mountain. Remember there are tons of people who haven't been to a Disney park in 20 years or more.

Besides, we won't let you out of the cult that easy.

Dang, that one sounded like me. Or OC Dean. Or... well, all of us!
