Disneyland guest finds magical surprise on Main Street, USA
When we think of Disney Parks, we think of magic. But, most of us associate that magic with the characters, the nightly shows, the parades, the Cast Members…everything encompassing the Disney bubble. However, as any guest can tell you, sometimes the most magical and memorable moments are brought to you by other guests.
Social media has definitely changed the way visitors experience parks. Trends come and go, and while they’re not all positive, many recommend surprising others and spreading joy, whether that’s hiding painted rocks or gifting your Mickey Mouse balloon at the end of your vacation.

Last December, we shared the story of a guest who made others pass the time during a long, hours-long queue for Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida.
When social media is teeming with stories of fights, malfunctioning rides, and canceled vacations, it’s good to remember that the magic is still alive and well at the Disney parks.

If you have never seen Upside down, the 2015 film stars Amy Poehler (Joy), Bill Hader (Fear), Lewis Black (Anger), Mindy Kaling (Disgust) and Phyllis Smith (Sadness).
The official description for the Disney movies reads as follows:
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her life in the Midwest when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – joy (Amy Poehler), fear (Bill Hader), anger (Lewis Black), disgust (Mindy Kaling) and sadness (Phyllis Smith). Emotions live in Headquarters, the control center in Riley’s mind, where they help guide her in day-to-day life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, trouble ensues at headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s primary and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions clash over how best to navigate a new town, home, and school.

Although it has undergone hundreds of changes over the years, Disneyland is the original Disney park and has a legacy unlike any other theme park. You can walk the same streets walked by Walt Disney and even peek above Pirates of the Caribbean to locate his former secret apartment.
It’s also home to the infamous Club 33: an exclusive dining experience with a year-long waiting list and annual fees estimated at tens of thousands of dollars.
