The happiest place on earth suffered a snakebite recently as Kobe Bryant and family dominated Southern California’s iconic Disneyland.
And from the looks of it, retirement suits the Black Mamba quite well.
Now we didn’t have the pleasure of slurping from clam chowder bowls or visiting Star Tours at the same time as the former Lakers star. But these days you can enjoy the sight of an NBA retiree from the comfort of your own home thanks to social media.
Those in attendance couldn’t help but upload one post after another as Bryant attempted to walk the grounds like a normal human.
As you may have guessed, the amusement park experience is a tad different when you’re Bryant.
As you see from the various posts, Fans have absolutely no chill.
If you were wondering what the crowd looked like outside Big Thunder on Sunday, this YouTube video illustrates the amateur paparazzi gaggle that ensued.

He even stopped for pictures with nearby Minnie Mouse fans.

As you can see, Los Angeles still holds affection for a man who is just a couple weeks removed from an unforgettable career dénouement.
And for the rest of us, we might be able to appreciate the theme park experience a bit more today.
Yes, the lines are a pain. But imagine enjoying any part of the day when the entire park is watching your every move.
