Deconstructing Disney

Deconstructing Disney was about the hidden messages in Disney films.
The Disney theme park Epcot has hidden meanings alone. The counties around the lake are all sponsored trade partners of Disney. (ie. Where Disney sells most of there merchandise around the world.).
There are common grounds within Disney animation which include the following things:

- Women are inferior to men
- They are curvy, seductive, weak and happy cooking and cleaning.
- Males are always big and strong
- Always save the women

Although these are all within Disney films there are many other factors. Every Disney film has went through a Disney-fication of the story from an original. However that’s enough about that. The part in which I found to be most interesting was about the Disney town called Celebration.

Celebration is like a Victorian town. It was reconstructed from a vision, which Walt Disney had. This is what a town “should” be like. Well according to Disney. There are several rules you must abide to live in celebration. It almost like a movie set that people live in. They encourage people to talk to each other through the way they have designed the house porches. Gardens are small and the porches are close to each other to encourage this. They also think that if its Disney that there will be no problems however that was quickly dismissed when near enough the first people through the door were complaining about no video stores or petrol station. Also people seem to think it would be the safest place to live.

IS THIS BECAUSE IT IS DISNEY?

DOES DISNEY MAKE PEOPLE THINK SAFTEY OR IS IT BECAUSE OF THE REPUTATION?

People do tend to trust makes that they have heard of. I suppose this is the kind of same thing. Disney is known worldwide it is a make in itself. People will trust it because they know it.

However at the end of the day it is one of many clever ways of advertisement by Disney.
