Why do Southern Californians like Disneyland so much ?

I moved from Chicago to LA right before the pandemic. One thing I found out is that a lot of people in Southern California like Disneyland despite living here

    I’ve been living here much longer than you so I can tell you you’re inaccurate in your statement. The fact that you had to ask this anonymously shows me that you’re you’re wrong, jabroni.

    I don't really understand the crux of your question.  Why would people who live near something hate it?  Is that why you chose to live in LA?  Because it has Disneyland, which you hate?

    I mean, I am not a big fan of Disneyland by any stretch and would be fine never going there again, but I would think that it would be a place most people would enjoy going and in living near it perhaps even get an annual pass.

    What do you mean despite living there? What does where a person lives have to do with liking Disney?

    "despite living here" ..... That means you think people who live in an area shouldn't like the things around them?  That seems like an odd notion.  Typically the opposite is true.

    What's not to like? And why should Californians particularly dislike it? Don't Chicagoans like the Navy Pier, the amazing Field Museum and the Aquarium?

    I don't want to know anybody who doesn't like or even love Disneyland.

    Im from LA county and have many friends who many don’t know each other. I can tell you that that from my experience majority of the people like it. There’s only two girls that I personally know that have told me they hate Disneyland and my brother is also one of them. My brother is the laidback stoner type.

    Let me tell you why I like Disneyland. As a proud Southern California,  Disneyland is part of our culture. Now I can disagree with many of Disneyland and California leftist views but the state as-well as the company did not started this way. I’m hoping that in the future we can have a balance view. 

    I love social studies and I enjoy going to Disneyland seeing demographics of different age of people enjoying themselves. Whether they’re single or couples, young or old, and people of different races. Disneyland always has a variety of things to offer. Also walking through Fantasy castle, it brings nostalgic memories when I was a kid watching Disney movies. There’s also the nostalgia feeling of walking through the American frontier theme in the park. I love history, world traveling and Disney offers that. 

    As a cinema fan I admire Star Wars. I don’t consider myself part of the Star Wars fan cult lol but I’m intrigued of the Jedi vs Sith struggle as-well as their music soundtrack. I’m also a huge fan of Pixar. I have a collection of all Pixar movies long before I even like Disneyland. There was a time when I wasn’t  into Disneyland. I was more into Six Flags because I like the rides but when I went to Disneyland back in 2008 I found out that Disneyland was more than just Disney princesses and Mickey toon town. 

    Disneyland also has Marvel studios. I grew up preferring Dc Comics over Marvel but the Marvel universe did an excellent job in creating the Avengers films, Disneyland has that. 

    Last and not least I also admire a strong company. I find it interesting how a child theme company with a Mickey Mouse icon can be as powerful as owning theme parks, ESPN and other sports networks, different movie studios, news channels, National Geographic and other come up artists. Too bad many in the Disney board are part of the “Woke cult”. I don't think Disney executives are some satanic people but I’m sure some are. 

    Disneyland may not have the thrilling rollercoasters of Six flags but their rides are unique in their own way that makes them stand out. They also have some good snacks. 

    That’s why I like Disneyland.

    People who grew up here often associate it with childhood and like to try to relive those moments as adults.

    Some people like fantasy more than others I suppose.  Is it so surprising that Californians might like it slightly more?  The thing is that there are so many people in the LA area that there are bound to be plenty that don't like it as well.  There are all kinds of people out there.
