There are two aspects that are highly under-appreciated and discussed regarding the parks.
- Engineering: Industrial design, human factors.
- Psychological: emotional connections, information overload.
I am aiming to cover point one more in future posts, but have always had trouble with point two; I'm only an Engineer, not a psychologist. Luckily I've found a new blog that covers point two: PsychoSocial Disney Culture.
The mission statement:
"I mostly follow the current state of Disney but I have a social-science-colored lens through which to view them and compare it to the past. I'm a bit of a biased nostalgic but I try to keep that to a minimum and stick to what I’m educated in."What makes this blog different is the social science bend. In a web full of art analysis and history, this is a much needed breath of fresh air.
