Great thread. The first photo I took when we visited last year was this one...it seemed everyone had a stroller (or a mobility scooter):

Disneyland was intended for everyone ... not just kids.


"As Walt Disney sat at a bench, at an amusement park, watching his daughters play, he noticed how ragged and filthy the small amusement park was. He also observed people's reactions to different rides, and noticed how children's parents had nothing to do. They would be anxious to go home, while their children were still having fun, and playing.

This is where Walt was conjuring, and planning a new type of amusement park; one that would be clean, and would have attractions for parents and children together. This was Walt Disney's idea, which eventually turned to be Disneyland."

Not exactly how I read it but surely 1 interpretation. My reply was meant to be lighthearted either way.

My reply was intended to be read as Disneyland is for children of all ages. Sometimes the children at Disneyland are adults who never learned the common courtesy of not slamming a stroller into the person in front of them.

I did not say that you should only go to Disneyland if you are under 18 years of age.

Why would anyone hate a British furniture retailer?
