When I was really really young I lived in Florida. I was naive like most children (although not as rude according to my mom and dad). My parents told me that the parks, films, etc, were imaginary but didn't really explain what that meant. I thought it was all real. I was under the impression that rather than Walt Disney building Disneyland, WDW, etc, he discovered them, similar to how Christopher Columbus discovered the New World. I didn't think of the Disney company as park management, but more like a travel agency helping guests make tours of the magical lands. I also thought that Splash Mountain could only be survived by the most experienced adventurers and thus that riders were all either brave, suicidal, or crazy. I also thought that Space Mountain was a Men In Black-style facility for the transportation of aliens on and off of our planet, and that the rides in Fantasyland were where their films were filmed. Presumably all Disney films had rides somewhere in the deep depths of the Magic Kingdom, it's just that the Disney Tour Agency hadn't plotted a guest path to them yet.
