Dear Disneyland, Thank you for providing us with an excellent time on Wednesday. It was a long day, as we were there for opening at 8am and stayed until just before closing at midnight, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. You would think that that would be enough time to see and do everything, but it wasn’t – there was so much we didn’t manage to cover, and it wasn’t because we were standing in hour long lines waiting to get onto rides. Another visit (or two) might be needed.
Dear Disneyland queue area designers, I would like to suggest that you should have a few more shaded areas for the lines for some of the rides. It wasn’t a problem for us, but we could see people standing out in the sweltering sun for ages and it looked very uncomfortable.
Dear Disneyland characters, Do you have some kind of cooling system inside those suits? I hope so, because it must have been very uncomfortable if you don’t.
Dear Newark airport, My friend, who travelled via your terminals on her way to visit me here about 10 days ago, says you could learn a lot from how lines of people are managed at Disneyland. Perhaps you should drop them a line and ask if they could give you a few tips to help you improve your present disorganised chaos.
Dear Mickey Mouse ears, How many different variations of you are there? I think we stopped counting after seeing the first fifty or so – there were sparkly ones, shiny ones, light-up ones, wedding ones, rainbow coloured ones…
Dear ‘Partners’ statue, I have been to Disneyworld in Florida and Disneyland in Paris, but this week was the first time I have been able to see, and appreciate you, properly. Not only that, but I managed to get a photo of you with the castle in the background and without lots of people in front of you.
Have a good Friday.
