Disney Without Music

February 13, 2013

I just thought of this - I’m at Disney World and there is music almost everywhere.

Imagine it without it.

It’s a barron wasteland of screaming children, machines, and people in costumes.

The music makes it all work.  There are fewer and fewer characters milling about.  Disney found what they feel is a better (and more calculated) way of delighting thousands of children who want to meet Mickey (full disclosure: I am one of those children who wants to meet Mickey).  But there’s still music.  There has to be music.  What’s a parade without music?  Or every single Disney movie ever?
