Why don’t you just chat with us here instead of going back and forth through freaking Twitter??? Create a profile and we’ll chat.

This is ridiculous.
Well, it was because I was banned from these very forums (which I have mentioned numerous times), hence why I was not able to post here. But...I guess now I can?

Now I know the last time I posted here, I admit, I was very rude. But I promise this time around, I'll behave myself.

Last 4 years!? I’m pretty sure that’s impossible. I may be able to pick 5 if I rack my my brain. But finding 10 things I like in the Chapek era? That would be like everything that’s been done at the parks in the last few years.

Apparently the criteria is the last 4 years but I like your list.

(Edit, I'm not playing by the last 4 years rule) The problem is that he's taking any one thing we might say we dislike and making it a "WDW Magic hates everything" argument. I love the Disney parks, I am very happy with Disneyland/DCA but he or anyone else would be foolish to believe that they have not made missteps at times. Heck, even Paradise Pier, while uneccessary to redo, really doesn't bother me that much. At the same time, he seems to be unfairly giving a pass to everything Disney does. So, 10 things I love about the Disneyland Resort, in no particular order:

  1. Food options are fantastic and a major upgrade from much of the food I endured there as a kid
  2. Paint the Night is amazing
  3. Project Stardust is long overdue given the crowding in the parks.
  4. Buena Vista Street, Cars Land and the rethemed Grizzly Peak areas are home runs
  5. Guardians of the Galaxy is a better ride experience than Tower of Terror
  6. World of Color/Fantasmic
  7. The classic rides (Space, Pirates, Mansion, all of Fantasyland) are still incredible 60+ years later
  8. Rivers of America, though shortened, are more beautiful than before
  9. Enhancements to Thunder, Mansion, Pirates (recent ones), Snow White, Pan & The Matterhorn (excluding the Cars) have been great
  10. Trader Sam's/Tangaroa Terrace
Bonus
  1. World of Disney Store remodel
  2. Naples Remodel
  3. Various other enhancements to Downtown Disney
