What Disneyland says about you
It’s no secret I’m a Disney fan. I like Disney. A lot. Okay moving on. I’ve realized that you can tell a lot about someone based on their favorite Disney ride, or favorite part of Disneyland.
For example, Kellen loves Haunted Mansion. It’s thrilling in a spooky way, even for adults. It’s vintage, so we know it’s stood the test of time, and you can go on it 3 billion times and never get sick of the music. I think he likes it because he appreciates vintage music, the setting, and decorations.
For me, I would say Adventureland is my favorite part of Disneyland. It makes me think of safaris, exploring, traveling, tropical places, and heat. As a kid, I loved summer because I would imagine I was on a safari in my backyard, or in Egypt climbing pyramids, or Indiana Jone’s friend running through old streets dodging ninjas (the story changed daily). Now when I go to Disneyland I feel like it’s my imagination from childhood coming to life.
Here’s my own little guide to each land in the park. So pick your favorite part of Disneyland and see what it might say about you.
If this is your favorite, then you may be someone who is: Superstitious, a dreamer, silly, young at heart, or a romantic.
If this is your favorite, then you may be someone who is: A technology wizard, innovative, or a planner.
If this is your favorite, then you may be someone who: seeks excitement, loves traveling, has a big imagination, is really awesome (oh wait…how did I slip that in there?).
New Orlean’s square (Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean)
If this is your favorite, then you may be someone who: is a history buff, values vintage ideas, is traditional, logical, or rational.
If this is your favorite, then you may be someone who: is traditional, appreciates nature, is into hunting/camping.
I love going to Disneyland because it’s such a creative environment. The gears in my head start turning and stories just begin developing. So from now on I’m telling people it is a necessity that I go to Disneyland—for work, of course.
What is your favorite ride or part of Disneyland?
