When you walk through a shopping mall, sit in your season ticket holder section of the ball park, dine at your neighborhood Dave & Busters, what are people wearing? I haven’t gotten all the numbers together for the statistical model yet, probably Bayes Theorem, but when I do, it may astound. Northern California is teeming with Disney merchandise and not just the classic oversized Eeyore t-shirt on a woman who is down on her luck. This is DISNEYLAND apparel. It seems to largely consist of those annoying images of the date 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006…they have been doing it for a while, with the primary characters strewn about the letters like they were vines or something. You’ve got Goofy wrapped around the “2” in some kind of figure-eight, Mickey and Minnie are helter-skelter on the “0 0” and Pluto and/or Donald are twisted around the last digit like Sonny Bono and the tree.
I am sure this is more prevalent in Southern California, but what about other states; other countries even? In my travels, California wears the %*#$ out of Disneyland apparel and I love it! But what about Florida? They have the huge complex, but it doesn’t seem like the apparel circulates about the state there as much? Could it be because a lot of people going to Disney World are coming from other states and countries? Are they buying their merch and then parading it through the streets of no-name, Utah?
I guess what I am asking is, do people in other states wear Disneyland apparel, and if so, take a picture!
