As part of the park’s anniversary celebration, Disney announced over 11 million people have visited it since it opened, which places it 6th among all Disney Parks for annual attendance.

I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
