OBcean Is ‘Officially Over Disneyland’

An OBcean has just posted on facebook: “I’m officially over Disneyland!” Then the person posted a time and expense chart to show their grief. We thought it timely and funny and and not so-funny and reposted it.

I think I’m officially over Disneyland. I’ve gone so many times that I have hit my lifetime limit of waiting in line for minimal amounts of entertainment value. We even went on a very low attendance day and I still left feeling meh about the place.

Here’s the chart:

Who came up with the label OBcean?

A variation of the label has been around at least since the Nineties, when there was a community newspaper called “The OBcian” I believe. It’s use has been constant but with various spellings. In 2014, folks with the OB Planning Board and the OB Rag agreed to use “OBcean” — ‘where OB meets the ocean.’ As for who? Dunno.

I grew up on Disney and they brought us many years of wonderful movies and TV shows. But, the theme parks are not there for the same reason, they are there to make money for Disney. I went a couple of times many years ago and was appalled at the long lines for a few minutes of entertainment and the cost of everything. Instead of taking kids to this kind of stuff, take them outdoors to the state and federal parks. It’s much cheaper and much more rewarding.

Um, the (probably) 1st and last time I had a “Disney experience” was watching the movie Fantasia when I was about 7 in the 1950s! Never been there, and never took my child there. When I think of all the benefit that could be gained somewhere else, anywhere else, w/ the $380 mentioned above, well, its just a nobrainer! Hahaha! :-)
