Disneyland to San Diego

Time to catch up on a few thoughts before I visit family in San Diego:

  • From Vegas to Disneyland I actually saw highway signs using the metric system. I also saw that there was a set apart solid white line lane just for vehicles with trailers.
  • In the Disneyland parking lot we saw a posted speed limit sign of 14 mph . . . 14?
  • Disneyland has now built a gigantic five story parking garage, it’s fantastic.
  • Maybe it’s just one of those things we don’t understand since we are not parents, but we have a hard time understanding why so many parents bring their stroller strapped kids. It seems that if the child has to be pushed around in a stroller that child not only can’t participate in all the attractions because of physical limitations but they also can’t conceptually appreciate the experience. Not to mention, it must be a bear pushing that stroller and dodging other park guests.
  • We heard one mother say to her child who was about to roam the park all on her own, “If you get lost or need help, just ask anyone with a Disney shirt for help.” I recommended to her that a park name tag might be a little more beneficial.
  • The happiest person in the entire park had to be WifeGeeding.
  • We were very fortunate that not only was the weather PERFECT but the crowd was actually pretty small. How small, only about a 20-30 minute wait for Indiana Jones and Space Mountain which we road multiple times.
  • The castle in Disneyworld is much larger than the one in Disneyland.

    The 14 mph speed limit is pretty common in the amusement and theme park industry. The idea is that an uncommon speed limit number is more noticeable than a more common number like 10 or 15.

    On the metric signs, back in the 70’s Carter signed a law committing the US to use metric on all the signs. I believe the only state to change them all was Alabama – imagine that!

    Then, what happened? After it didn’t catch on, they spent the money to change them all back!! Genius.
