People Watching

Disneyland is a great place to people watch as you might imagine!

I see sun seekers, baring lots of skin in the hot sunny weather.  I see sun avoiders, arms and legs and faces covered from the sun’s rays.  I see T-shirts with odd juxtaposition:  a toddler wearing a shirt that says “Stay Away From Gangs”; “Too Bad Ladies, I’m Taken” faded and stretched over a prominent beer belly.  Lots of sports fans wearing their teams’ colors and logos.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears are everywhere, of course.  The best pair I saw were on the bride and groom—hers were white satiny ears with a shoulder-length veil attached; his were black with a top hat positioned between the ears.

I watched one guest check in.  She was pushing a huge stroller and the accompanying luggage cart was completely loaded.  How much stuff did she need?  Turns out the stroller contained quadruplets—two boys and two girls—and the cart was loaded mostly with portable cribs and packages of diapers.  What a brave woman!

The animated Disney cast members are fun to watch, too.  Goofy, Cinderella and one of the Disney princesses were walking around the hotel grounds, smiling and waving to guests.  It brings a smile to my face to see the youngsters’ faces light up when the Disney characters approach them.  

There is a magic to this place…


  1. I love people watching too! And you are right, Disneyland is a great place to do so! One of my favorite places to do so is at sports games; find myself watching people more than the game :)
