A friend who raised two gifties took her children to Disneyland religiously when they were young and she thought we should go now while DD would think she's meeting the real Mickey so I was getting all psyched up but it certainly misfired. I should have handled it better but DD doesn't seem all that heartbroken over it so all is good.

I love Disneyland. To me, it's pop culture installation art at its grandest. So we'll get there eventually, just not right away like I thought.
