    Very neat. I didn’t realize there were so many Disney places! We don’t have one here in Canada and I’ve never been to any others. We have Canada’s Wonderland, though. It used to be based on Paramount studios stuff, but they were using all those things illegally so the ride names all got changed 🤣🤣
