I went to Disney World once, when I was eighteen. That was enough.

Adults obsessed with Disney make me sad. I can't even laugh at them (too much). I just pity them.

I found it interesting how they all act and dress really childish, but they all look 5+ years old than their ages.

I used to have a boss when I worked at a V.A Hospital who was a 58 yrs old single white female. She never took sick days and twice a year she would take a 3 day vacation and she would go to Disney World. Her entire life was work and Disney

When she retired, she actually had something like 312 vacation/sick days available (our time carried over year to year and it had been her only job ever). They had to pay her almost an entire year's salary when she quit. She hated anyone who called out sick

I've had two friends and a bf who were/are Disney people. I couldn't really have a conversation with them because they were basically children. All of them lived in this child like bubble that protected them from the real world. My bf was also into Scobby Doo and the Muppets and only ate kid foods especially desserts. He was obsessed with them. He would give toys as gifts to everyone. I really did love him but I couldn't take it any longer and broke up with him. It was madding!

The only person I know who frequents Disney parks and buys merch is the person who was formerly my best friend in elementary. She grew up to be one of those T loons, a wannabe animator (she draws eye-bleedingly terrible ‘Furry/anthro’ art), and a general mental case constantly in therapy for everything under the sun but her actual problems (which are clearly denial of homosexuality and ASD, from one who knows). And yes, xe is fat as well, though to be fair xe does have a legit chromosomal disorder that causes obesity.

Still remember how she would brag on the playground about her tri-annual trips to Disney, in front of all of us poorer kids who couldn’t really care less and though it lame.

It has been 214 days since Disneyland closed, and Stacey Major is struggling.

“I haven’t been to Disneyland in seven months,” said Major, a 32-year-old high school teacher. “This has been my longest stretch since 2012.”

She’s not alone. When the coronavirus pandemic forced the park to close in March, it left thousands of its fervent fans — annual passholders who spend $400 to $1,500 a year to visit the park on a weekly basis — without a beloved escape from reality.

“Being a single mom and a teacher means I have a lot of adult responsibilities,” said Major, who visits Disneyland at least once a month and even toured the park in a wheelchair when she was eight months pregnant. “I am a very Type A personality and can’t relax. For me, Disneyland is a stress release. It’s very freeing for me to be there for a day. I can watch parades and be with my friends and not feel any pressure.”

For Disneyland enthusiasts, the thrill is gone. The park is closed. The magic is missing. How to keep going when the “Happiest Place on Earth” is closed?

“I’ve been watching videos of Disneyland parades on YouTube and crying,” Major said.

You can even get married at Disneyland. (Scattering cremated ashes, a misdemeanor, is not allowed in the park, although it is rumored to be a popular covert activity.)

“Disneyland is a community,” said Cameron Keaggy, a 30-year-old Apple salesman who visited the Anaheim theme park 123 times last year. “The people are what makes it magical. Everyone loves Disneyland for different reasons — nostalgia and magic. At Disneyland, you are transported into a story. You become a part of the story.”

Before the park closed, Keaggy visited Disneyland three or four times a month. During quarantine, Keaggy has kept himself busy by making “Star Wars” videos (he is certified to represent the Storm Troopers as a member of the volunteer 501st Legion), hosting Disneyland trivia nights on Zoom, and transforming his backyard into a Jungle Cruise-meets-Adventureland hangout (think fire pit and bamboo fencing).

“Since we have to be home, why not bring some of the Disney magic here?” Keaggy asked.

Creating Disney magic extends to Disneybounding, a subtle costume trend of dressing like a Disney character using clothes from the closet. (Disneyland does not allow guests 14 and older to wear costumes.)

For Gabourel, Disneyland is where she socializes with friends and decompresses after a stressful day at work.

“Normally, I would go at least once a week or twice a week,” she said. “On my way home from work, I’d often stop at the park and meet a friend. I miss the days of riding one ride, getting some popcorn and a churro, and leaving after the fireworks. Just being there makes me feel safe and happy. I attribute that to the cast members.”

Disappointment about canceled trips goes beyond feeling sad. For many, travel — and anticipating travel — is self-care.

Vacation anticipation is a real thing. It helps your brain. And now it’s gone. Fall fashions are a go.

Gabourel said Disney employees, among the most cherished talent pool in the service industry, contribute to the park’s enchantment. “They are the magic makers,” she said as she fondly recalled the time a cast member performing as Jack Skellington gave her an Honorary Citizen of Disney badge.

Disney porn - where to get the best deals. Hop on and get off.

“It’s something they hand out when people are representing Disney in a positive way,” she explained. “It is so heartwarming to be seen as part of the Disney community. The relationships that you make with other people are amazing. It’s a beautiful community.”

Because cast members are “on the front lines,” Gabourel said she understands why the park is closed. “I would prefer that people are safe,” she said. “I was worried about them.”

“I put together a Disney playlist and found all of the parades and fireworks shows that I could think of on YouTube,” he said. “I used the Disney food blog and made eggs benedict and ham and hash browns just like at the Carnation Cafe. For a snack, I made banyan beef skewers and churro bites and Monte Cristo sandwiches from the Blue Bayou. We found Mickey ice cream bars at Target. We would wear our Mickey Mouse ears, and our daughter would wear her costumes.” Despite pressure from company officials as well as politicians and the tourism industry, no one knows when visitors will be able to return to Disneyland.

Even so, fans know that the magic of Disneyland can continue as long as, to quote Walt Disney, “there is imagination left in the world.”

“It’s an adjustment, but we all have to make adjustments right now,” Simpson said. “I can’t wait to get on the Indiana Jones Adventure ride again, but until things return to normal, I’ll just have to keep the magic of Disneyland alive at home.”

I enjoy going to Disneyland, mostly because it brings back fond memories of vacations from my childhood. My siblings and I still take our parents on big family trips to the park from time to time. That said, I am not going into withdrawals because I haven’t been able to go in almost two years. I definitely think it’s strange how some of these Disney adults cry and seem seriously upset about not being able to go and use their fucking annual pass everyday. They need menta help.

There is not much magic left at Disney where they laid 28,000 cast members off yet restored COVID-related pay cuts for executives.

How strange.

I can’t say I have withdrawals but I have missed going to the parks. It’s an escape into fantasy for a few hours and brings back memories of my childhood visits.

I feel sorry for all of the laid off employees, it’s especially difficult during the holidays.

For the people who go every week after work, wouldn’t the parking add up? This girl says she goes just to go on one ride, grab a churro and then leave. Wouldn’t she still have to pay $60 for parking? So it makes daily short trips not worth it.

I was talking to a guy on a dating website and he seemed ok, but it was taking him a really long time to actually go on a date. One weekend I went out of town and he seemed really disappointed. He said his big plan for our first date was to invite me to Disney (we lived in Florida) for the whole weekend with his 2 kids. I thought he was joking and I laughed and said that would be my worst nightmare. He wasn't joking and got his feelings really hurt. What kind of a weirdo would want to do that on a FIRST DATE?

What's even sadder is going to foreign countries and spending several days ... at a Disneyland in that foreign country. I know somebody who does this with their family. Went to Tokyo and spent several days at Tokyo Disneyland.

For these die-hard Disney fans, it's not enough to spend one day at Disneyland in Anaheim.

Tokyo Disney is worth going. So is Paris Disney. It’s fun to compare all the Disnies and see what makes them different. My dream is to go to Shanghai Disney.

I can't imagine loving them so much that that's literally the only place you want to vacation.

I mean, you could have a great trip to Europe or Asia for what you'd spend for a family of four at Disney World.

Disney is great nostalgia for me. As a child Disney was a great escape from unhappy parents.

But what I have trouble with is the adults without children who insist on meet and greets with other adults dressed as cartoon characters. I truly find this disturbed. Okay a tourist picture with Mickey Mouse. Maybe. But to wait on a long line to meet Donald Duck or the 7 Dwarfs seems totally looneytoons.

If these weirdos are so obsessed, why hasn't even one of them hopped a plane to Florida to visit Disney World, which has been open for months?

Because they're charging through the nose for the privilege and the Disneyland season passes don't work in Orlando.

I live in LA and I know a few people who in the Great Before went to Disney at LEAST every month. It's fun and enjoyable once or twice a year, but doesn't the magic wear off if you go constantly?

I do not mind people who are into disneyland. For me it is for children, but whatever.

I do think you might have a serious mental illness if you are mad that disneyland is shut down to save lives because we are in a serious fucking PANDEMIC. Can't they just pop in a disney movie and order merch online. Disney stuff is everywhere.

I never thought about it before, but now upon reflection, R10's comment about "Incest Survivor's" is right on the money- at least from the people I've met through my 12 step groups. Talk about trying to regain your innocence! Also this mantra, we oft- repeat in AA about addictions and why people seek them out in the first place, " Individuals, who just can't deal with life on life terms- and turn to addiction to deal with past traumas."

Often true I've found, no matter how cliche.

I know a family with a looooooot of money. Likely billions. They are Disney fanatics amd they have a house in Orlando just for the DisneyWorld trips. The house is Disney-themed, with shit like an “Under the Sea” dining room with murals and starfish-adorned cutlery and valances shaped by ocean waves and shit. They have parties with Disney music piped in every room and costumes for guests to wear.. I can’t even tell you the crazy shit. It’s what these obsessed people would do if they had unlimited funds. It’s kind of creative, but also slightly disturbing.

I have a friend who is a member of Club 33, which not being a Disney fan, knew nothing about. It costs 100K to get into and 20K annually with a 14 year wait list. It was fine. It absolutely wasn't worth anything near this amount, but his love of Disney is strong and they had the money. They go a couple times a week and will just go to the park to dine while watching the parade. I don;t get it, but to each their own.
