Road Trip Planning: Disney Inspired

Recently uncovered gem from the Limestone Archives!

A Tale Of Two Main Streets; The towns that inspired Disney are searching for a little magic of their own. (NY TIMES)

“While not quite a search for the meaning of Rosebud, this is a visit to see what, if anything, remains in these two towns of the spirit that moved two of the Magic Kingdom’s creators: Walt Disney, who lived in Marceline from 1905 to 1910, moving there when he was 5, and later mythologized his hometown on Disneyland’s Main Street, and Harper Goff, an art director from Fort Collins, whose early renderings for the Disney park evoked his birthplace.”

Designing Disney’s Theme Parks: The Architecture of Reassurance by Karal Ann Marling is one of my favorite books.
