    I welcome this addition to the continuing scholarship on Disney. From 1990 to 2016, I taught a university sociology course, “Disney and American Culture,” that consisted of a week-and-a-half on campus with lectures, discussions, reading, and videos, and then a week in Walt Disney World for field work. It was interesting to see WDW change over the years and see my students’ attitudes change over the years as well. I think my course may have been one of the first such courses, and I always wished that there were a way to coordinate among all the professors who taught Disney courses. We have much to share with one another.

    Well THIS is cool! If only SOMEONE had thought of doing something like this before, and maybe, say, wrote TWO books based on it….and taught the course at, oh let’s say, a SoCal University…….it’s “Beyond” me…..

    I’m in NorCal and would be interested in taking this class. Would it be available as an online class?

    Ohio University, Athens has had one for like 5 years. Check it out. Do some research.

    Wow! Sounds like a great class!!!
    You may want to check out the one and only college founded by the man himself, Walt Disney!
    Right there in SoCal, California Institute of the Arts, teaching some of the best animators, Imagineers, and other talented artists since 1961.
    Be sure to check out their list of alumni!

    Will watch for his book to come out

  8. Would love an article that talks about other courses being taught/previously taught on Disney… Ohio University has a Storytelling in Theme Parks course that is phenomenal!

  9. I would love to take this class! Is this for anyone or you have to be a student? And how do we find out more information about this class?

    Ohio University has had this class for 5 years led by 2 phenomenal Disney loving professors. The class focuses on Storytelling and its role in Theme Parks. While the class focuses mostly on Disney, the course also touches on other Theme parks. The class then participates in the WDI Design Competition, of which many students have made it to the semi-finals and have landed internships with WDI. Would love to see an article focused on that class!
