Disneyland CA: New Cars Land Opens


A whole new Disney theme park section is devoted to America’s deep love for cars, based on the fun animated car movies and autos in general. Of course, they don’t mention that gas prices are once again sure to be pumped sky high this summer by the greedy oil robber barons. Whatever, it’s all now good carbon-print fun at the happiest place on Earth.

Now rolling at Disneyland’s California Adventure, the new Cars Land ride is attracting thousands of visitors daily. A combination of the old amusement park bumper cars and digital updates, it involves several kinds of rides, including swirling around in cars mounted on huge horizontal tires.

Whatever the appeal, while the kids race around in Cars Land fantasy, at least it will allow Mom and Dad to momentarily forget the stark and expensive reality of driving the highways outside of Disneyland.

Q: I met a great guy on an LA-Mexico cruise. We hit it off immediately, and when when ashore for a sunset beach stroll, it was togetherness for the rest of the cruise. The problem is that I’m in the middle of a divorce, and I told him I was single. He wants to book us for another cruise in September, this time Fort Lauderdale-Bahamas. He says he’s single, too, has a great job and offered to pay my way on the Bahamas cruise. I’m not sure he’s telling the truth either. Should I take a chance and go for the new cruise?

Lovers on beach

A: What do we look like here on www.travel55plus.com, a lonely hearts club? We’re experts in travel, not romance. However, we can tell you that cruises always create an emotional wonderland, a temporary fantasy world that often masks reality. That’s why all the fibs and promises work on new romances at sea. Or at least delay the truth until we must face real life on shore.

Tell the romantic guy the truth. Give him an idea of when you’ll be completely free. Ask him to level with you, too. Then, when there are no spouses or other complications keeping you apart, accept the invitation for the Bahamas cruise. If you feel you can afford to pay your own way on this cruise, tell him so. He’ll respect your indepenence. Then, if you really enjoy each other’s ... er ... company, why not get together again. And again. And again.
