It's a place children go to be themselves. And the place adults go to uncover their inner child. It's where you can eat a five course meal at a Club 33 (if you have a connection), or you can eat a gigantic turkey leg while waiting in line for "Indiana Jones." With summer at its peak, so is Disneyland. The lines are long, crowds wear mouse ears by the masses and it's not exactly cheap admission. But nothing can keep some Lodians away from Disneyland.
Lodi High art teacher Tom Nardinelli has been going to Disneyland since the year it first opened. He says it might be that his grandmother's name was Minnie, but he's in love with all things Disney. He has a massive Disney collection, and he even makes clay Disney sculptures and figurines in his classroom. On trips to Disneyland, he's had numerous memorable experiences, from being locked in a store with stars to gaining access to the exclusive Club 33.
