    Because all my family and friends would think I'm crazy to complain about this, I figured this was the perfect place. But recently I've watched a movie (forgot the name) and read a book where they mentioned the Cinderella castle in Disneyland and it irked me, since I know it's Cinderella castle in Disneyworld and Sleeping Beauty's castle in Disneyland. Is that my Disney nerd coming out or what? End of rant.:surrender:

    RANT AWAY!!! RANT AWAY!!

    I also get "irked" when they refer to the park in Florida as "Disneyland" or vice versa. I get downright stabby when I politely correct them saying, "Disney World" and they reply "Oh, who cares, it's all the same!"

    NO IT'S NOT!!!

    I could hug you all right now! Thank you so much for understanding! And I, too, hate when they use Disneyworld and Disneyland interchangebly, like there's no difference.

    Perfectly reasonable rant. :D :yes:

    Slightly off-topic, but my personal favourite is "Aren't you bored with going to Disney?" :rolleyes:

    At least I don't get asked, 'really? again?' since we joined the DVC a few years ago. Now people assume that we're Disney obsessed (which we are) and they seem to understand when we plan a new trip. They may not "get it" but they 'get it'. If that makes sense.

    I could understand the confusion if all you said was "I'm going to Disney", but when you specifically state which Disney then there should be NO confusion. They are totally separate and distinct. Disneyland is the Fatherland/Motherland. And that doesn't include California Adventure.

    To continue a theme, I also grit my teeth when people say, "When we are done here (AK, EPCOT, DHS) can we go back to Disney?" :mental: THEY ARE ALL DISNEY!!

    Or, oh! oh! When they confuse US/IOA for DISNEY!!! :eek: Unconscionable! :lol:

    Embrace your inner Disnerd and feel no shame!! I will add to that that until this past year I was, sadly, one of those people who said Cinderella's Castle instead of Cinderella Castle. Ever since I learned the proper name I've been really agitated with anyone who says it wrong, lol!
