Hello, Disney Friends! Last week, I went to a non-Disney theme park that is around two hours from where I live. No, actually, I meant an amusement park… There is a difference, of course! Most of the time I was thinking of Disney. I was constantly comparing everything there to Walt Disney World and how Disney would make everything so much better! So, here we go! This is how a Disney fan who visits the Disney Parks nearly ever year sees a non-Disney amusement park…
You show the worker your ticket, and as you do, you think how at Disney, it is exciting to scan your MagicBand. You wish you were about to enter a Disney Park and not a crappy amusement park.
You absolutely have to use a map because you have no idea where everything is, but at Disney, you don’t need a map at all because you know your way around like it is the back of your hand.
You take a picture by the sign at the park, but you wish Cinderella’s Castle was in the background.
Every time you go on a ride, you are constantly comparing everything to Disney and how Disney does everything a million times better. On some rides, they seem like they are trying to copy Disney, but they really just did a crappy job on it.
Also, the workers… They aren’t friendly like the Cast Members. They won’t go out of your way to help you. They aren’t always smiling. They won’t engage in conversation with you. At Disney, you are callled a guest, while at a non-Disney amusement park, you aren’t called a guest. Therefore, they won’t treat you like one. Disney and Chick-fil-A workers (even though it is not a theme/amusement park) are the only people who know how to treat you well.
The food is crap but still expensive. The food just reminds you of some food you get at the fair. You miss Disney food.
You really wish that “FastPasses” were free here, but you absolutely won’t pay money to skip the lines.
At the end of the day, you feel sick to your stomach because you rode a lot of rollercoasters, and you have an awful headache, too. You aren’t itching to go back, but instead, you are itching to go back to the most magical place on earth.
Walt Disney World (or Disneyland) is so much more than a theme park. Once you spend a day at a non-Disney amusement park, it just makes you want to go back to Disney even more. Don’t get me wrong me because it is fun to go to other amusement parks other than Disney. However, all I can say is that there is no other amusement/theme park that is as good as Disney because truly, Disney does it the very best.
Have a magical day!
