Disney for the Kids at Heart Walt Disney once said, “ Too many people grow up. That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don’t remember what it’s like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well, I won’t do that.” Walt wanted to create an empire that would help adults remember what it was like to be kids. So, is Disney really just for kids?

    I’ve only been to Disney World once in my life and I don’t remember a thing. I think it is cool to understand how this kingdom was built by the great Walt Disney. It’s amazing how Walt Disney started with little support with pursuing a degree in arts. Then ending up building Disneyland and building Disney World even after he had passed away. As a kid I had always love Mickey Mouse and reading this booking seeing that he was the cartoon to character that started this.…

    There would be one entrance on Main Street USA, leading up to Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. From there, visitors could travel to different lands such as Frontierland, Tomorrowland, Adventureland, or Fantasyland, where Disney characters would entertain them. This uncommon show sparked the imagination of both children and parents. With that concept in mind, Walt Disney sought to recreate the world of his father, with Main Street USA as the 1890s-style central artery of the park, paying homage to turn-of-the-century America. And to realize this best, Disney had the buildings designed on a 5/8th scale.…

    Of course, they translate the message or make other minor adjustments—but the focus is one global copy thrust. Some do it to cut the cost of developing different ads for each country.

In addition, when walking down Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom, guests may smell the aroma of cookies in the bakery or popcorn. Carson also comments on the park 's visual appeal by stating "Disney ensures that what visitors see of that land is what they would want to see on an actual vacation there" (232).
