Notice a theme here?
Aside from a few Fantasyland rides, it seems to me that Disneyland overwhelmingly represents a male paradise. And yet, women seem to enjoy the park just as much as men.
Obviously, Walt and his Imagineers were predominantly men, and the very fabric of the park and its attractions suggests that their mindsets, the very way they viewed the world and remembered their childhoods, influenced the park greatly.
Not that any of the above attractions/themes might not resonate with certain women, and conversely might be of no interest to some men. But still, it does seem that much, if not most, of the park and its themes are geared to the male segment of society.
So, what is it about the park that attracts women?
(And I apologize if this sounds sexist--it's not meant to be. It's just something I've noticed over the years, and wondered about).
