An evolving symbol in line with modern values

An evolving symbol in line with modern values

Another major looming question around Disneyland is what it chooses to represent, and how.

Disneyland continues to scrub its depictions of the world, such as supposedly family-friendly fantasies and depictions of indigenous African people that they suggest were cannibals. Another is the Splash Mountain log flume, based on the 1946 film Song Of The South, which had racist depictions of black people.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

There is an increasing eagerness to see Disneyland, not just for the frivolous fun and entertainment, but as art.

Disneyland is more valued than ever for its art. The theme park is also revealing how America interprets the world and itself.

Disneyland and other theme parks are becoming more an obsession for adults than for children.

The internet has allowed new creators to document Disneyland and its history and culture.
