We all know that Walt modeled Main Street after a turn of the century town because it was nostalgic for those who were visiting in the 1950s. It's also fairly evident that the other lands were based upon the pop culture interests of the era, with inspiration drawn from the popularity of Davey Crockett, Zorro, tiki culture, Disney animation, the atomic age, etc.. The subsequent castle parks followed a formula that had been proven to work. If Disneyland hadn't been built until today, do you think Walt would have chosen the same lands for his park? Is there something inherently timeless about these choices, or have we simply trained ourselves to think of the original 5 lands as timeless? Either way, what lands would you choose if the park were built today and we'd never known the other lands?
No announcement yet.
What if Disneyland were built today?
