    Last time I was there, when came nightfall I just rode Pirates of the Caribbean over and over again whilst eating candy burgers until closing. I still kind of have an obsession with the general idea of pirates and being a pirate. It's good fun.

    Yep, you're right. But I think you would enjoy it if you went at a time when the crowds are low.

    I've never been to Cedar Point. Is that the gargantuan park in the Midwest?

    Yeah, me too. It's nice to visit once in a blue moon. I imagine going there often (which is entirely possible when living in Orlando.) would take away some of the appreciation of it.

    I understand and feel the "magic". I don't know how they achieve it, and I don't want to know because that might ruin it. I suppose the parks can be appear sensorish, but I'm not a fan of thrill rides, so the appeal to me is much more along the lines of the imagination titillation you talk about. That, and the way the atmosphere seems to change the minute you walk in the gate. It fascinates me.

    I also like the visual aspect & atmosphere of Disneyland. The creative detail in that place is amazing. I like the rides, as they tend to be whimsical. I am not a thrill-ride person for the most part, so I much prefer it to a place like Six Flags. I also like to people-watch. Big crowds and lines bug me too, but you just have to know when to go to avoid some of that (off season, middle of the week, late afternoon & evening) and then just accept it as a part of the deal.

    I didn't like Disneyworld when I went, but then I was 15 and didn't like much of anything at that age. I was also comparing it to the Disneyland of my childhood and it wasn't going to compare to a place that already held so many happy memories.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Love the fireworks so much.

    Go in early to mid- November on a weekday. It's cool (you need a light jacket even) and there are no lines to wait in.

    I can appreciate this except that I can't tell if you're just being a spendthrift or if you truly feel that way.

    See, this was my question. Why is it not an intuitive experience? Walt Disney himself was an ENTP after all.

    That's one of the best rides ever. It's EXCITING to get on that ride!

I had one older brother who was always getting on my case because I didn't like these sorts of things, I'd have rather read a book or played by myself in the backyard. There's a comformity aspect to it that grates on me and the idea that my imagination and idea of fun needs to come into line with someone's else vision.
    It sounds to me like people might have wanted your company. Granted, I don't know your past situation, and this is off topic now, but is it possible that they just wanted to connect with you and have you join them and they did not understand or know how to do that?

    I would rather go somewhere with more thrill rides and shorter lines. Six flags is sometimes okay, but the Magical Kingdom is usually fairly boring.

    Isn't obvious ?

    I don't know Disney's type but I will believe you that he was an ENTP.


    This this is very simple to answer. The type of original creator has almost nothing with kinds of experiances this park offers. Ok, he strated the whole thing but it is not him who set all the details plus this park exists for a long time now and if I am not mistaking Walt Disney is dead for sometime now. So somebody else takes care of what is going on there. (if Disney was ever in charge of it)
    I simply lack information since this is not in my field of interest.

    The reason why it is not an intuitive experiance (for the most part) is because there you are "forced" on doing things. Even if that simply means watching colurs of costumes. Enjoying a ride on a rovercoster is sensory experiance as well. Eating an ice creme is also sensory experiance.
    Taking a ride in something is also sensory experiance. Plus since entire thing is just for fun the entire thing is also an F experiance.

    Which means that in general NFs are much more likely to enjoy it then NTs.
    Also don't forget that E/I and J/P play a role here as well.

    The reason why this is not really an intuitive experiance is because there is no much connections to be made. Since everything is "simple" and it is ready for you to use it. There is simply no deeper point(s) to it.

    However there is one catch which can make an entire thing more intuitive.
    There were situations when I ended up in SF entertainment area so I ended up bored. So in this situations I am trying to figure out how entire system actually works as a way to entertain myself.


    By this I mean that I will wonder how big thier electricity bill is. I will try to figure out if park gets water from one source ot multiple sources. Or is that water circling for the most part. I will speculate about the income of entire park in combination how much staff they actually need for making the entire thing work. What are professions of that staff and what are their raitos.
    Or could look at a rollercoaster and how it moves in his tracks and try to guess which place is the most likely place(s) for any accident to happen. Is there any available space for park explasion. Can arrangement of features in the park be better. It is not impossible that I will go around the place and search for fire alarm swiches just to know how many of them are there.


    In situation where you have typical SF way of fun, like this kinds of parks, disco, movies.... I will behave on this way if I have a choice. In the case I am watching a movie I will overanayize a movie in a search for logical gaps.

    The Things I have said here are said form experiance in the case someone wonders.. I simply can't stop analysing and if I am forced to I will probably end up bored or I will simply put more focus on my inner world to "entertain me" until this is over.

    Lmao. Funny you should say that, off subject now. Took the youngest to see Transformers 2 the other night. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER let me pay to see a huge budget film where i notice the same clip twice. Instead lose 2 seconds of the film, where is the logic in that!!!!!
    Next time you watch it, see if you can spot it.

    I won a weeklong trip to Disneyland when I was 8 - my Mom took me and my 2 sisters (Dad stayed at home to work). We had free passes, hotel etc., and only ended up spending 3 of 7 days there because we were bored and didn't enjoy the line-ups from hell (in April!). I also got food poisoning from one of their burgers, which my Mom then decided I was faking (complete with forcing me to eat because of the "faking" - puked on her shoes for that). Spent the rest of the week at the beach, rescuing ladybugs from the sea. I remember LA and Disneyland as very hot, and very concrete-y (like, literally, lots of concrete). I also remember a limo driver not understanding where Canada was.

    I've never been to either one. Nowhere. Not in the US and not in Europe. I think the closest I got to was a WB theme park or something similar and some amusement parks.

    I love the idea of Disneyland, as I much love many ideas of many places, Costco included, but have always built up such expectation that once I finally get there, I am only reminded of all the people, the waiting, the heat, the noise, the frenetic constant motion that in ways is delightful, but incredibly exhausting. I am a sensory addict, by the way.

    Yes, sadly.
