When I was 4, we moved to Southern California near Disneyland. I remember hosting many family members as guests at our house, and every time they came, we went to Disneyland. I don't recall loving it or not. I do enjoy watching the home movies of it, even though there's no sound!
Now, my family lives in the same town as an amusement park, albeit not one as big as Disney. We buy the kids season passes that pay for themselves after 2 visits. It's a great deal. And now that they are teens, and don't want parent stalkers, I can sit on the beach and enjoy myself while they spin on rides.
