    I went to Disneyworld many times and I enjoyed it!
    I don't necessarily believe in the message and just enjoy myself..
    I've never been to Disneyland but to my understanding, it's a lot smaller..

    Disney parks, at essence giant marketing campaigns, are exactly what Baudrillard was talking about. Nothing but hyperreality, candy for the brain without nutritive content. Forgive me if I would rather have the main course of exploring Planet Earth.

    I think you're taking it a little too seriously. It's supposed to be fluffy entertainment....

    That's the point. Why be suckered into paying for fake, fluffy entertainment when there's an entire world of real entertainment, knowledge and experiences waiting outside your doorstep? It seemed more philanthropic in the '50s when it opened, given the high cost of travel at the time, but nowadays, travel has gotten to the point where a trip halfway around the world would cost just as much as a week at Walt Disney World. Why pay to live some corporate board's fantasy when I can create my own experiences in exotic locales worldwide?

    The other problem I have is that the Disney parks have nothing distinct about them. Sure, the characters are unique, but what's the difference in seeing a man dressed as Donald Duck at the park, and actually watching or reading Donald Duck's adventures on TV or in a comic book? The latter is real, because the character is fictional, and the fantasy of their actions exists in someone's head. The representation is one thing; the story itself is the real part. The character at the park is simply a man dressed in a costume that does nothing consistent with the reality of the character as developed in the stories.

    If I seem to take these things seriously, it most likely is the paternal instinct talking. I would not want my children to restrict themselves to the processed experience of a Disney park; I would want them to discover their own adventures and create their own fantasies in many real places all over the world.

    Who says going to D-land once is restricting yourself? It's not like once you go there you can never go anywhere else.

    And maybe a week a Disneyworld is very expensive (IDK, really), but if you live in CA, then $50 for a day is a lot cheaper than any plane ticket + hotel cost to go somewhere else. When I was a teen I had a year pass for $100, and it was just a place to hangout, like an arcade or mall or whatever teens do.

    I have never been there but Disneyland looks like SF way of having fun. Which means that I would probably be bored there for the most part.

    I also find the experience to be boring, but I am fascinated by watching those who don't.

    I see, very well said.

    Such parks are awful. I hate spectacles.
