Agreed. I know a guy who married a girl "right out of high school, so nice and fresh" and they go to DLand every year. Creepy. Does DLand have a rule about adults being accompanied by children? If not, I imagine it is rampant with pedophiles.

They either didn't really get to have much of a childhood or their childhood was unfortunately the highlight of their lives ("My life peaked at age 8! It was all downhill from there... ")
I admit that I get nostalgic from time to time and I'll look up clips from "The Little Mermaid" or "Sleeping Beauty" on Youtube but I don't plan frequent trips to Disney World or have entire rooms of my house dedicated to "Beauty and the Beast" paraphernalia.

A guy I dated was friends with this lesbian couple (he grew up with one of them). The first time I met them, they wouldnt shut the fuck up about their perfect Christmas holiday the year before ... at Disney World.
Or as one of them called it "CHreeeestmas with Meeeeeeckey" (she was Cuban).
I thought it was weird that they would spend Christmas day at Disney World. But of course I didnt say anything as they showed me the pics they had. Most were of the two of them in baggy Disney-themed sweatshirts, pneumatic smiles plastered on their faces, posing with the different characters.

I used to be friends with a girl from a "Disney Family."

I think the problem here is the incredible lack of discernment on this site. There is a huge difference between the person who goes to Disneyland or Disney World once a year, the person who collects Disney memorabilia from the '30s and '40s, the person with a 1/4" scale replica of Disneyland in his back yard (Bobbie Sherman), and the person who hoards everything and anything with a Disney licensed character and has their entire non-work life revolve around all things Disney. It is the difference between a person who has a glass of wine at dinner and a raging alcoholic. The problem is the politically correct yutzes that feel that one is just as valid as the other. As I have posted before, I don't care if collect Hummels if you can talk intelligently about "full bee", "Crown" and TMK4 marks, but people who just acquire stuff to have stuff, have a problem.

I've posted about this before, but I have an annual Disneyland pass, and I go several times per year.
I have to go to Anaheim/Irvine and Orange County in general for work, so I stay on Harbor Blvd. Across from the park. It's very convenient to the 5 or the 405. In the evening I much prefer to wander over to either the Park or Downtown Disney and eat, walk around, catch the fireworks, maybe watch a show (I almost never ride any rides), and kill time rather than sit in my room or in a bar. If that makes me a freak, so be it.
It is a great place to people watch, and I do admire the job they do keeping it fresh and entertaining. I read somewhere that 7 of the top 10 amusement parks in the world are Disney Properties, and that doesn't happen by accident. They know what they're doing.
I really never notice the freaks everyone is talking about in this thread. I'm sure they're there (someone has to be buying all that shit on Main Street), but they aren't very visible. Maybe they come in the daytime? Other than the fact that a staggering number of visitors are just plain HUGE, it's a pretty normal bunch. Amazing well behaved too. I've never seen anything that required Security or the Police.

I keep secret the fact that my husband and I have annual passes and go to Disneyland 3-4 times per year. We also went there on our honeymoon (we're a gay couple btw).
Let me tell you that I was extremely suspicious of adults who liked Disney before I started visiting the park. I found Disney corny, greedy and politically conservative (the fetishizing of hetero love in all of their movies is so over-the-top). Disney wasn't even a big part of my childhood, so I had no nostalgia for it. I visited the park only as a favor to my (then) boyfriend.
I can only describe Disneyland's effect on me as magical. I reverted back to my childhood in the best sense of that phrase. The park presents a totally immersive experience, and it draws power from the myths and fairy tales that inform it. The old dark rides--Pinnochio, Mr. Toad, Snow White and especially Peter Pan--are masterpieces of design and are beautiful and sweet. The Matterhorn and Big Thunder Mountain coasters are campy fun. Pirates of the Carribean is amazing--you ride down a flume into a humid subterranean landscape with half-buried skeletons and really warped- looking animatronic figures fighting on enormous, detailed sets.
I get why people are creeped out by adult Disney fans; I don't understand the appeal of collecting Disney stuff, or dressing in the clothing, or getting tattoos or what have you. But being contemptuous of the parks makes no sense either. They are grand achievements filled with superb detail, eye-popping visuals and, if you look for it, sly wit. And there are fireworks every night.

Love the parks for lots of reasons. There may be more exciting faster rides in other parks, but Disney appeals to me. My favorite roller coasters are Space Mountain (In Disneyland) and California Screamin' because of the music. Each car has it's own speaker and the music is the perfect soundtrack for the ride.
I can't believe more DL queens aren't into the musical aspect of Disney.
I have no stuffed animals, collectibles, memorabilia, etc, but I do have all the CD releases of park music since the 50's. I listen to it and it makes me smile.

My sister and her husband of 30 years as well as their two adult kids are all Disney obsessed. They even drive around with like 20 stuffed animals in the back window of their car.
Family gatherings at their house are quite odd. Especially Christmas when I am expected to know the latest character even though no one in the room is under 25 years old.
Worst of all, one of the kids who just got married did the same thing, met a guy in college and proposed at Disneyland. Oh and they all have annual passes.
Why do they not see this is bizarre?

Personally, I love the jacked up looking Mickeys, the crackhead Minnies and ratchet Ariel murals you see from time to time on sleazy daycare centers in East LA.
If you think civilians who are into Disney are weird, you should meet the people who work for their studio (and actually "believe" in Disney, as opposed to faking it for a paycheck).

Walt Disney was the bastard son of a Spaniard--hence the latino-looking face.
Disney is the most successful Hispanic-created business in the world.
Disney is not illuminati, but they are strange and really hard-ass to work for.

Disney was a Mason, R111, and his early cartoons are full of their beliefs.

As a kid I always thought that Walt Disney looked like Caesar Romero crossed with Xavier Cugat.

Walt was the son of Irish immigrants, not Spaniards. But yes I agree he had a Latino looking face. Walt's mother Flora looked like black Irish.

Many of the Spanish Catholics who came to the southwest early on started Freemasonry Halls.
I don't know what-all is wrong with Freemasonry, but I don't attribute it to Satanism, like with that fuckhead Jimmy Saville.

R114, that is the official American story, but many Spaniards know it to be true.

I remember his television shows about nature and they were exquisitely dull. I vowed never to go camping, fishing, or hiking after watching those bore-fests.
Mutual of Omaha's something or other, but the Pabst Blue ribbon beer commercials were awesome.

Oh and that awful Davy Crockett series, or was it Daniel Boone?

Davy Crockett was a homosexual alpha male. Daniel Boone was just an illiterate thug.

My parents are adults who love Disney - I can remember years in middle school of which I spent a full month at WDW, in four week+-long trips.
Though I can recognize a love of Disney parks and movies as something one acquires before developing critical faculties, anyone could do a lot worse than to take a relaxing vacation at any of the Disney resorts - Fort Wilderness campground in particular.

Oh come on, you loved Charlie the Lonesome Cougar, admit it. And when those crazy raccoons got into the house and spilled all the flour and stuff--well, you know that was a hoot.

Disney was part of my cultural life as a kid in the 60s.
Saw Mary Poppins a couple of times when it came out(we even went on a class trip to see it,) went on the Disney created rides at the NY World's Fair, would go to see the periodically re-released classics and would watch the Wonderful World of Color in b and w every Sunday night.
I do go to Disney World every few year and enjoy it immensely partly out of nostalgia. But I don't need to collect stuff or go there constantly.
In the 70s there was only The Magic Kingdom. It was very secluded so it had a certain magic that cannot be recaptured and there was no cross merchandising with other brands so it was pure Disney. Starbucks is now on Main Street and to my chagrin was always packed. Also the rides created after Thunder Mountain are pure Palisades Park.
My favorite used to be Space Mountain but they perversely ruined it and I have no idea why.
Still staying at Wilderness Lodge is great, Le Cellier has the best fillet mignon and Ohana has a dessert so delicious it is obscene.

which part R127, sexing on a towel in Injun Joe's Cave, swapping with a guy my age (16) at the Contemporary tennis courts at night, or the creepy Saddam lookalike that followed me for the better part of an afternoon at Typhoon Lagoon? he later hit off with some white dude and they headed for the changing/locker room.

If this is your idea of "creepy," OP/R130, then you've got some serious self-loathing issues to work out.

Jeez. It must be nice. When I was in law school I had to go see the finance office whose job was to get the rest of the money due that semester before I could pre-register for fall classes. Without pre-registration you get shut out of the classes you want. They didn't care that my loan money wasn't disbursed yet. As I left the office I saw my fellow student in the same boat and I cried to her "I gave them my rent money. What am I going to do now?" They were merciless and to this day I refuse to give them any donations no matter how much they beg. Fuck 'em.

I used to be snobby like this, until I reached middle age and realized I still loved sci-fi, comic books and video games.
It's just another form of escapism. It might not be your cup of tea but don't judge. Basic fandom isn't inherently creepy.
