    What does Disneyishness mean to you?

    In a recent thread, Datameister coined the term Disneyishness, which I thought was an interesting idea and fun term. I had actually been thinking about a post related to this for a while, but the term fit so well with what I had been thinking, I thought I'd borrow it. Basically, the term means what are those hard to pinpoint things that define a Dinsey theme park for you. So what does Disneyishness mean to you?
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    Haha, I'm honored that you'd create a thread based on my coined term. I'll have to try to think of a concise way to explain what it means to me, and I'll eagerly await other responses in the mean time.

    It's cool... UCLA... I expected it!

    For anyone wondering Data and I are friends who constantly joke about a variety of issues.

    Sounds like before the ride with churro and after the ride without.

    They're missing Disney-ousity!

    That should be spelled "Disneyosity"--without the u. There aren't any English words that end with "ousity."

    Like I said, I make up good words all the time.
