    Re: More exploitation of Walt?

    About the closest modern comparison I can think of would be Apple selling Macbook/Iphone/IPad covers with Steve Jobs on them... Walt's image is so closely tied to Disneyland that it was only a matter of time before this happened. I made that comment before Buena Vista even opened (actually hate being right about that one)... and here I sit just waiting for the Walt Bobble Head that is bound to happen at some point.

    It wasn't his wish. See the map below--with the same floating-head image of Walt under the word "Disneyland" on the lower right that appears on that scary-looking hat:



    Also, his image was on many souvenir guidebooks.


    That said, I do agree with Wiggins that the current corporate use of the image is hypocritcal.

    Re: More exploitation of Walt?

    I hope the shirt is still in stock. If so, I'll be buying one today.

    'Cause, you know, I like Walt.
    So full of Disney Magic, my eyes are blue.
