Imagineers and Crocodile Tears

I’m fascinated with former long-time Disney artist Kevin Kidney’s flickr photos — in particular this “before and after” gallery art of a boy at Disneyland. Notice that the corporate p.c. police deleted the boy’s pop gun and replaced his spear with a souvenir flag.

On a similar note, read this Re-Imagineering post on Disneyland’s troubling refurbishments for the “it’s a small world” ride. Not only are they messing up Mary Blair’s brilliant designs, they’re planning to completely change the original uplifting message of the entire ride! That makes my blood boil.
