Not Visiting Disney?

Disney is modernizing?

The article linked above is from a “gentleman” who no longer will visit any of the Disney parks because the corporation is no longer following the vision that Walt Disney had of it when it opened in the 50s. From what I gather, the 50s was a time that was very much into white privilege. The writer of the above article seems to be living in the 50s still, if he thinks that the Disney parks should remain the same way that Walt envisioned it.

We wouldn’t have many of the rides that we do today, if we kept it in the 50s. Many of the safety measures wouldn’t be in use. The park certainly wouldn’t be inclusive.

I was very happy to see that the Disney corporation was coming into the modern world. Maybe, eventually, the author of that article will join us. Until then, with his attitude, I don’t think anyone will miss him. Disney will go on financially without him.

Ruby Bridges on Disney Plus

When I read the book that Ruby Bridges wrote, Through my Eyes, this movie was mentioned. I decided that since I had Disney Plus, I might as well see what it is all about. A few things in the movie are different from the way the author told her story.

The movie was based on the book that the psychiatrist wrote. I believe he did a great job with both the book and the movie.

I would not think that this would be a children’s movie, but there’s really nothing in there that a child couldn’t see. It is definitely worth watching especially to learn about the integration of school in the 60’s.
