    i'm glad i have a good friend who works as director level imagineer and can get me in anytime i want, becuz i would NEVER pay $1k for a pass.

    oh and for true disney geeks, i have had dinner at club 33, 2x. it was ok, the atmosphere & elevator ride up were way better than the food. I have not been there since it was raped , i mean refurbished by the decorator, my friend says it doesn't have the vintage feel anymore. oh well, fuk you walt, seems the clients that pay $10k for a membership at 33 want "bellagio classy" not "talking animatronic moose heads"

    and PS: there are plenty of "stupid people who love to get in your way" in Europe....most are tourists from the US

    Gay guy told to ‘cover up’ at Disneyland for wearing short shorts

    A gay man is upset he was turned away on a Disneyland ‘Gay Day’ for wearing short shorts – despite women getting through in similar outfits.

    I guess none of the NBA players from the 70s would get in either.

    Still seems like a bargain if you live in the area. I remember going when you paid ala carte (tickets for each ride) and the park was a tenth the size.

    Disney copied the Neuschwanstein castle in Germany, that's most of the charm and in my opinion the attraction. I could carless about the rides and crappy food. Better food in Paris. Vegas sucks and most who visit there are from out of this country, go figure.
    P.S. I loved this real live castle when I visited and toured the grounds. I didn't notice crying babies, strollers and obnoxious travelers.

    and neuschwanstein is every bit a fake imposter as the disney creations. it's a late 19th c faux replication of blended historical castle types. a romantic fairy tale created by a mad bavarian obsessed with wagner.

    You are right about the castle, but King Ludwig II of Bavaria was reputedly gay and probably not mad.

    When the king’s ministers caught wind that Ludwig was planning to dismiss his entire cabinet and replace them, they acted first. They plotted to depose him constitutionally, on grounds of mental illness, subsequently issuing a statement that he was unable to rule. However, this was accomplished without any medical examination, so the king’s diagnosis of insanity remains suspect. Among the list of bizarre behaviors described in this “medical report” was the fact that his young groomsmen were often ordered to strip naked and dance for the king’s entertainment. Poor taste, perhaps, but not insanity. Three of the four psychiatrists who signed the damning medical report had never met the king, and none had ever examined him.

    yeah but in the 19th c people did consider being gay a mental illness. And still do in Kansas.

    imagine being king and having naked groomsmen dance for you. now there's a ride they need to put in disneyland
