And I can't understand how anyone can feel sorry for them. They knew dang well what they were moving into.

Hey, I live in a place where I can smell sea lions at the wharf a quarter mile away, and they stink! I'm suing everyone! :D
I know many folks around the DLR who bought their house in the 80's, before Disneyland was open every day and long before they had nightly fireworks.

If you lived in your house for forty years near Disneyland, you can't start complaining now about fireworks.

Disneyland has been open at least 5 days a week since nearly Day One, and has had nightly summer fireworks since the early 60’s. I have no sympathy for anyone who moves near a world famous attraction and then objects to it doing its thing.
(EDIT)
Same goes for moving near an airport or RR track.

I'm sorry you'll need to reroute your flight path because I moved here....

Disneyland wasn't open 365 until the mid 80's. Until then, it was weekends and seasonal.

No, you are quite wrong, unless by “seasonal” you mean 5 days a week. Even in the off season, Disneyland was open Wed.-Sun. pre-80’s. This is a well-known and documented part of DL’s history. DL closed Mon & Tue. and Knott’s closed Wed. & Thur. Not sure where you’re getting your info.

So you're saying Disneyland was closed a few days a week. So not 365? Exactly what I just said.

Exit side of the Revolution. In the old days guests would enter the Revolution here. Today the queue is reversed.

Love how their Labor Day flash sale is still going well after the timer hit zero.

I spent more time than I'd like to admit looking at their pricing and pass options (since it is so confusing). There were conflicting statements on the site vs what checkout actually offered, six flags staff over the phone and chat also were no help. Ended up not getting passes. Reminds me of why I don't bother with them anymore.

I've never understood the difference between pass holder and member. I remember seeing people running around the park with the diamond member pass things around their necks like it was some big exclusive club. I guess they were AP wantabes.

As a former parking lot employee the idea of getting closer parking (aka spending less time in the parking lot) is tempting.

The different levels of memebership make no sense to me. The worst value is the "diamond elite" which only offers minimal improvements over the tier bellow (diamond) for 50% more of a cost each month.

The confusing thing is adding dining or flashpass to a membership. The cart wants you to do it monthly (which costs 2-3x as much as the season dining or season flashpass). The site claims the season dining/flashpass can be added to memberships. Six Flags staff claims it can not be. The membership benefits page says members get a discount on season flashpass and season dining pass, staff claims they do not, despite me directing them to the URL that says otherwise. What a mess.

No idea why Six Flags can't just have different tiers of passes with different benefits. This is confusing.

I think the best value is just getting a season pass and whatever season add ons you want.

Disneyland was closed precisely 2 days a week in the off-season. That is not what is generally regarded as seasonal operation in the theme park industry. Seasonal usually means weekends only in fall and spring, with many parks closed completely in the winter. But, back to the point, anyone who moves next to Disneyland and then complains about noise is being ridiculous--even if they moved there in the 80's, 70's, 60's or late 50's. ANYTIME. :D Move ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD, people! :D

Does anyone remember for Halloween they had a Log Jammer overlay called "Blood Falls" circa 2004? Can't seem to find any information but remember that it had fog, one person jumping out to scare you during the lift, and a lot of red lights.
