I don’t think my girlfriend knew what she was doing when she bought me a SoCal Annual Pass to the land on August 28th 2011… since then we have been 25-ish times and we recently upgraded our passes to the Deluxe (not quite premium yet - someday). 
I am not going to say that I had a terrible childhood, because I didn’t.  I’m not going to say that I was raised not knowing what love was because that would be a lie.  However, I am an only child and the product of a broken home - so I grew up faster than others my age.  I never really had the opportunity to be a wild child, a dreamer, or a brat - my parents (all four of them) were quick to correct “undesirable” behavior. Even now I’m a person who can’t go bowling or miniature golfing and have fun with it - I get far too self conscious and I just can’t let go and have fun.  It saddens me that I don’t have the ability to be goofy or care-free. 
Disneyland as an adult has given me back some of my childhood that I didn’t realize I had been missing.  We visit the park and it is magical each and every time - somehow it just doesn’t get old.  I’m that girl bumping into things because I’m in awe of everything around me.  The Disney parks are the only place that I can really revel in those childlike moments of wonder.  I giggle, and skip and pull my sweetheart to the next attraction, I cry like a baby during the fireworks…Thanks to Disney I’m starting to see a care-free side of myself developing, and it is scary but oh-so beautiful.
[content sigh]
So named “The Happiest Place on Earth” truly one of the most magical  places I have ever been.
p.s. yes - we will be in attendance for the “One More Disney Day”, we will not be there for the full 24, but I’m taking a half day on the 29th so we can head up from San Diego.  The waiting is brutal!
