As a child, I used to absolutely hate any child that went to Disneyland and become uncontrollably jealous. Most of the kids in my school were middle-class and could afford the (international) trip and a LOT of kids had it, I had absolutely no chance at a trip due to my family. As an adult, the ads about surprising kids by announcing a trip really bring those old feelings back up, and I struggle with the resentment. It’s petty, but it still hurts.
“I went to Disneyland with my school and I asked my group who wanted go on It’s A Small World and they all agree. They were creeped out and the next day they started to say I ruined Disney for them because we got on It’s A Small World. We did get on other attractions but, they still complained. I started to feel depressed and hate myself for getting on my favorite ride It’s A Small World.”
I’ve been thinking alot about what Cal State I want to transfer to and although the closest one to me is CSU San Bernardino, I have bigger dreams of venturing out to other locations (since I don’t want it to be my only option). Fullerton is one of them, since it’s close to Disneyland and I figured I could do the college program, but I’ve been having doubts on if I’m right for the position and if I can make it that far.
I’ve wanted to do the DCP for a few years now. I graduated HS a year ago but haven’t started college yet. I’m worried that I won’t get accepted, but I’m even more worried that I will get accepted but have an awful experience because of the mental and physical disabilities that I have. I have family members who’ve worked at Disneyland and had awful experiences because of those things.
“The inspiration behind wanting to celebrate my 21st birthday at Disneyland was inspired by Hannah Pixie Snow because she spent her 21st at Disney World (with her then boyfriend, Oliver Sykes). It made me happy because I always felt pressured to go out and get drunk once my 21st birthday came up, but I was never into drinking, so she sort of paved the way into getting creative with celebrating another step into adulthood. “
“i’m a gay boy who fully identifies as male, but i can’t help but wish that i, too, could be a disneyland princess for a day. i’ve been looking at photography of aurora and cinderella at the parks, and the gowns are so beautiful and the wigs are so lovely, i really begrudge the fact that i’ll never be able to get cast in a role like that“
