…..This is what I remember. On a visit to Disneyland a couple of years ago, I was hunched over in Town Square on Main Street USA, trying to adjust my backpack. I was listening to the music, smelling popcorn, hearing laughter and just becoming immersed in the setting. With my backpack on, I stood up and faced north, looking directly at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. I took a deep breath and then I heard something. I heard someone crying, who was this? I turned to my right and saw a man, about 30 years my senior, crying. He wasn’t hurt, these were tears of joy. He was also looking at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. He said, “There it is…there it is…after all these years of seeing this on television, I never thought I’d be able to see this….” And with that, he took numerous pictures and then took off. He wasn’t talking to me in particular, he was just making a statement to himself. I just shrugged this off and went about my day. It wasn’t until a year or so later that I revisited this scene in my head and then my thoughts started to come together about this man’s statement and how at some point Disneyland will have a big emotional problem. Read more to learn about this theory, shall you?
