  • I miss going inside Disneyland so much! It’s my HOME and it should be OPEN! Every time I’ve visited DTD since July, I’ve seen an incredible team of CM’s working diligently to ensure everyone is social distancing, wearing masks, and abiding by covid protocols. There is just NO reason it shouldn’t be open! We stand behind you Disneyland! We support your team in all their efforts to make it a safe place for people to get away from the extraordinary pressures we now face, day after day. Disneyland is far more than an “amusement park;” it’s my home away from home, my place to escape and enjoy life, a place where I meet up with friends, chat with CM’s about what’s new, trade pins, smell churros, see the smiling faces of sooooooooooo many happy young children (and the occasional very tired child lol)…it’s my happy place and I MISS IT!


  • I was five, and long before July 1955, I felt like Disneyland was mine. My dad worked at the park in 1954. I remember mom driving that 1949 Chevy car with all four of us in the backseat. I couldn’t wait to see how the Park was progressing. The smell of the orange trees was strong as we started to come near the site. I saw dirt everywhere and big trucks moving around the main street. My dad came out and mom gave him something to eat, and when he walked back in I felt my dad was the luckiest man in the world. When Walt Disney had his show on television, we couldn’t wait to talk about his park at school the next day. Living in Hawaiian Gardens, California I felt I could walk to the park because it was only minutes away. Sadly, I turned 70 years-old and no park. My parents are gone, but we talked about Walt Disney after I met him while standing in line the day the Matterhorn opened. My children were raised going to Disneyland, and my plans were to walk through the most beautiful gates I’ve ever seen in my life on my birthday, June 9, 2020, but God had a different plan for all of us. I pray that some how I’ll get to ride my train to the French Market so I can get that wonderful cup of coffee. I believe we all had to empty our vacation funds just to feed our family. Please, if anyone gets to go to Disneyland when it reopens, take the train and have that cup of coffee. I hope the streets of Disneyland will remember me, Loretta.

  • Just got back from WDW. Looking forward to visiting Downtown Disney.
