When I first visited Disneyland as a fresh off the boat expat some two decades ago, I was already an adult. I grew up in a country and a culture where Disney was not part of our childhood. Thus I was star struck at the first sight of Disneyland and Main Street. It was like I stepped onto the pages of a fairy tale land, and I loved it! Loved it!
And that is the reason why I convinced my travel team to select Magic Kingdom as the one park we visit in Disneyworld. I wanted to revisit Main Street again. I wanted to see it through the eyes of the kids I was travel companions. Although I did not elicit the response I was hoping for, I kept in mind that they are born here and are subjected to all the Disney characters since they were little and are not easily impressed like most kids are here.
Anyway, I loved it still. Although I believe I might have to see Disneyland again just to complete my scientific comparison of which I love more, because upon seeing Main Street at Disneyworld it paled in comparison to its counterpart in California, in my opinion.
This is Main Street through my lens:
