Disneyland Details │ Nine Simple Details of The Disneyland Park

After going to Disneyland last week, a specific point is confirmed for me: just like in writing, it's the details that make the magic.

The rides of course are the main attraction. But the details are all chosen for a reason. Even the flowers. It all tells a story; it’s all intentional. 

This place is the “happiest place on earth” not just because of the Indiana Jones Ride, or the Matterhorn ride, but because the details in the queue up to the ride are perfect. The colors of paint, the music, or sound effects piped in on hidden speakers; it's the signage, the props, the way they can create real-looking rock from cement.

Their details use all five senses and maybe, even, the sixth sense. This is exactly what a great writer should do as well. 

Anything is possible if you believe. Walt Disney believed in this concept, created what he wanted to see, and watched his creations come alive for the happiness of all those who visit the parks today.

Here are just a few details I noted on this last trip. There's about, oh, a million more details photos I could've taken, but I chose these nine. Much of the park still feels vintage while many areas are brand new and feel new. 

Some areas of the park make me feel exactly like I did when I was there as a child in the ‘70s and ‘80s. It’s a nice blend of both. 

Until next time, my vintage friends...
