After multiple failed attempts to take my family I have been tempted to pull one of my favorite Jack Handy deep thoughts...One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said. "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.
Seeing how it just keeps getting more expensive each year I have also considered taking a jar with a picture of my family on it and putting it on the counter in a 7 Eleven, but I don't think it would draw as many sympathy donations as the leukemia and kidney transplant containers it would have to compete against.
My favorite part of Disneyland is Adventure land. I love The jungle ride, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Haunted Mansion. I just hope they don't ruin the jungle ride by making a movie based on it, as has been the trend with it's neighboring attractions. The best part of Disneyland is watching little kids reactions. Disneyland is kind of like the Truman show because it's staged and make believe and you know there is a horrible dirty, real world awaiting you when you leave, but I still love it.
PS-If you happen to be a Disney rep and appreciate the plug I just gave your theme park, feel free to comp me some tickets.
