And theres a clock shop on Main Street. It's impractical not to have clocks around the park.
Oh, I agree. Seems perfectly legitimate, and I love them, they are all very nice. -- It just seems funny, that quote. I must have been asked at least a dozen times by someone, while at the park, "do you have the time?"
"We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together."
It is a funny saying, however I think it is meant that time or a calendar has no meaning more than the actually clocks and watches (i.e. the current time of day.) It's meaning is more like Walt's opening speech about leaving the of today behind. You're in period time of the future, past, turn of the century, etc. and not in the now when it comes to the backdrop.
Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

First off, time is relative, but it is a constant. It continues no matter what decade or place you are in, because, we as human beings live in a world that rotates and revolves around the sun, causing time of day and seasons. What was meant by that statement was that even though the hours of the day may pass every sixty minutes, those changing numbers will have no effect in the long run, because the time Disneyland runs by is a constant and is unchanging. Walt never said that there would be no day or night at Disneyland. He simply said that clocks would have no meaning. They don't really. The main reason we have clocks, other than to tell the specific time of day or night, is to measure the days, years, and decades of history. The clocks at Disneyland will mean nothing other than to determine a particular time of day. An exact point in time (in which one land is set) will not be altered by the hours of a day.
