Sticks & Stones...
I was thinking back on all the names that Disney's California Adventure has been called over the last six years. We're talking bad ones here, not good ones of course...
I thought I'd list a few of them cause more than likely, in five years most will have been forgotten... left in the trash heap of theme park history:
Disney's Berry Farm
Disney's California Misadventure
DisneyKnott(as in: we can go to Disneyland or Disneynot)
Disney's Parking Lot
Knotts Magic Kingdom
Mickey's Magic Mountain
Six Flaggs Anaheim
And the lists goes on and on...
Then there is the rivalry between the two parks. Both are Disney employees, but there are some, particularly at Disneyland that look down the noses of their brethren across the Esplanade. Almost as if they had designed it and were to blame. The two most common remarks made are calling it "The Spare Park and "The Other Park"...
Five years from now, sticks and stones may brake my bones, but words and names...
They'll be washed away like tears in rain.
