Disney Just a Mashing Together of Familiar Fantasy Worlds

Potential Benefit:

Looking at a drawing of the original Disneyland concept, I was struck by how the park was little more than places and moments in history drilled down to their most iconic elements and in close proximity. This got me thinking of a few things:

- How do we learn to romanticize certain times and places? Why do these particular scenes resonate so much with children? If it is because of seeing the Disney films early on, could any place/time be seen as magical by kids if presented in the right way at an early age?

- If we find these settings so attractive, why not make more regular places mimic this same dynamic - even if fairly fanciful. In some ways casinos/vegas do this - could this concept be extended further to enhance everyday places?
