Reasons to Go to Disneyland as an Adult | 7 Fun Facts

Since I was a kid, I had dreamt of going to Disneyland. And never have I ever wanted to go to any other place but the original theme park in Anaheim! I had my reasons to go to Disneyland. For starters, I was a massive fan of all the toons – the original oldies like Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse et al. Then, there were TV shows which showed the adventure and theme park in the best light possible! As a kid, the USA seemed like a distant dream. Once I grew up, I knew it was definitely going to happen.
