    Very interesting. Any theories on why Disneyland is instagrammed so much more than Walt Disney World?

    When you search #disneyland on Instagram images from Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland all appear as search results. Even some from Walt Disney World appear from people who just have no idea where they are apparently.

    According to the article the following methodology was used. It isn't clear whether they actually confirmed that every post was actually taken at DLR in Anaheim.

    When searching for #Disneyland, similar hashtags, such as #TheHappiestPlaceOnEarth and #disneylandpark were included. More generic hashtags, such as #Disney or #Anaheim were excluded, since they might relate to other situations.

    This just furthers my theory that Disneyland is becoming a social club where people strictly go for good instagrams. Not that there's technically anything wrong with it, but its annoying when people are selfie-ing their way down Main St and slowing traffic flow.
