[*This article has been edited non-Disneyland Info removed--MMP*] Disneyland It's not surprising that the 1955 breakthrough occurred in Los Angeles.

It's when she's perched at the top of a five-storey watery descent that my daughter and I both have epiphanies. In the nanosecond before descent, she realises just how profoundly angry a little girl can possibly be with her dad and I realise that she will still get that angry despite me bringing her to Disneyland. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Taking our seats on Disneyland's famous Splash ...

Last week, the California Supreme Court decided that the "Indiana Jones" amusement park ride at Disneyland was like a city bus. It therefore held that Disneyland owed the duty of "utmost care" of a common carrier to the passengers on the ride. As I will argue below, the majority opinion in the case is a telling example of bad common law reasoning. The Facts of the Case, the Plaintiff's ...

The description in the Disneyland Paris park map for Big Thunder Mountain tells you that riders will "Hurl through an abandoned gold mine at breathtaking speed aboard a runaway mine train!" making this attraction one of only two within this park to have a blurb ending in an exclamation mark.
