Would Walt Want This?

June 3rd, 2011

The other Sunday, I was listening to one of my favorite Internet radio stations, Magical Mouse Radio. (Cheap plug, I know.)  They had their monthly Be Our Guest podcast where people call in and ask various questions regarding “The World”. During their last show, one caller asked if certain rides and attractions is what Walt Disney would want himself. That got me thinking. Why stop there. Let’s examine the city like place as a whole and see if any of it is what he envisioned back in 1971. I’m an optimist, so let’s look at the things Walt would approve of first. Walt seemed like a family oriented person. For this reason, attractions like It’s a Small World and of course the Carousel of Progress would have  been  to his liking. Also, the Enchanted Tikki Room would have pleased the founder  of the happiest place on Earth very much. However, as with anything, there’s always a bad with the good. Unfortunately, there are some things that Walt would not have approved of. A glaring example of that would be the mass hysteria that occurs after every “Wishes” fireworks display. After every showing of that fireworks display, everyone seems to scatter like rats attempting to either go to another attraction or they scramble to the exits all at once. I don’t feel that Mr. Disney would have wanted that massive exiting taking place. I’m not exactly sure how, but I feel that Walt would have constructed a civil way for everyone to exit out of his theme park. Another large example would be EPCOT as a whole. When it was built, EPCOT stood for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. His vision of EPCOT was to focus on the future. That vision has been held up in many ways. Innoventions is a great example of what he wanted. Checking out all of the gadgets and devices of tomorrow is something I feel Walt would have  loved to look at and appreciate. However, my question is, where do the different lands fit into his vision? I understand the concept of community is interwoven into the park. Where is the futurism in the lands though? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great to learn about different cultures and how they live. I just don’t feel that portion of the park is something that would have been approved by the founder of “The World”. What do you all think? What other aspects of any of the parks would Walt agree or not agree with? Discuss and I’ll write about it in a future post. As always, have a magical day. :)
