Disneyland and Culture
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The overwhelming success of Disneyland, the world's first permanent, commercially viable theme park, sparked the creation of a number of other parks throughout the world, from Florida to Japan, France, and Hong Kong. Disneyland's impact is not confined merely to the theme park arena. These essays explore the far-reaching ideology unleashed by Disneyland. Topics include Disney's role in the creation of children's architecture; Frontierland as an allegorical map of the American West; the ""cultural invasion of France"" in Disneyland Paris; the politics of nostalgia; and ""hyperurbanity"" in the town of Celebration, Florida.
