am i the only one freaking out here?!?!?!?!
okay, i kind of understand why they did it. and i'm okay with the fact that disney now owns marvel (although i think lots of marvel fans are freaking out). but what i'm NOT okay with.. and what I AM FREAKING OUT ABOUT is the fact that bob iger (whom i love and adore and for all you non entertainment folks, he runs disney) said that the marvel characters "will have" a place at disneyland.
are you trying to tell me that spiderman will be walking around my land of dis holding hands with mickey mouse?
wrap your head around that one.
i can't have it. it makes me sick. i hate the very idea of it. now i wouldn't care if the marvel characters walked around california adventure. and i wouldn't care if the marvel characters had a place at the third theme park that disney will eventually build over in anaheim. but the thought of characters like spiderman, or iron man walking around disneyland makes me want to throw up. seriously. like i get sick to my stomach.
it couldn't be more of a NON fit. disneyland is mickey mouse.. and goofy.. and silly, fun, kid friendly characters. marvel characters are fighters.. and tough.. and just don't seem like the right fit for a place like disneyland. it was odd enough when star wars characters got introduced to the park. and i think that's been okay because it's been minimal and non intrusive.
i'm just worried. i'm worried about how one of my most favorite places on earth is going to change. i'm worried that it won't have the same feeling anymore. because that's why i love disneyland so much. i love the way it feels when i walk through the gates and onto main street. i love seeing the dopey characters that represent nothing more than happiness and smiles. i love feeling like i've just walked into a place where everyone is happy to be there and kids are in complete and total awe with every turn. it truly is a magical place. i just don't want it to change.
