Vinyl Leaves Walt Disney World and America Institutional Structures of FeelingWalt Disney World is a pilgrimage site Walt Disney eBook #10003 filled with utopian elements craft and whimsy It's a pedestrian's world where the streets are clean the employees are friendly and the trains run on time All of its elements are themed presented in a consistent architectural decorative horticultural musical even olfactory tone with rides shows restaurants scenery and costumed characters coordinated to tell a consistent set of stories It is beguiling and exasperating a place of ambivalence and ambiguity In Vinyl Leaves Professor Fjellman analyzes each ride and theater sho. As a lay person reading this for fun rather than an academic person chunks of this went over my head but overall this was an interesting entertaining and thoughtful examination of Disney and Disneyworld even if it is 30 years out of date
