Southern California's pecking order

Here's a little nugget which prompted a strong laugh from me this week.

My kids' elementary school is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, and the school is holding a fund-raising event next weekend to mark the occasion. Of course, the kids are all being asked to sell tickets and the school's holding a contest for the most sold.

First prize, to the student who sells the most tickets, is two tickets to Disneyland. Nice.

Second prize? Two tickets to Knott's Berry Farm.

Looks like the pecking order is set, dun'it?

I am not suprised, Disney does have the name and reputation. Also, isn't it more expensive than Knotts? Either way, I would take either of them!

I think it also shows the age attraction of the parks. Elementary school children prefer Disney to Knott's, but Middle Schoolers would prefer Knott's. Now if you go up to High Schoolers, my money would be on Magic Mountain to top the list. Then, as you get older, you crave the magic of your youth and return to your roots at Disneyland.

I think that is funny......but true. Kids love D-Land!

My school is currently holding a fund raiser of sorts for leukimia and top prize is two park hoppers to DL. No second prize though.

How about some tickets to Magic Mountain...after all, it now does officially cost more to go there than Disneyland.
