The Barnes article reminded me of all I’ve learned about Disney World and that which I love best about it — the Imagineering. Imagineers are the imaginative engineers who design Disney. Every time I visit Disney World, I just know that no one understands better designing for the masses and for mass appeal than the imagineers of Disney. You can see clearly through all their work how it evolved and was influenced by the styles, sensibilities, and mores of each generation. To represent this, I thought of THE mouse who is so iconic of Disney that my son says that we’re “going to Mickey Mouse” in stead of “we’re going to Disney World.” So I went rooting through my books and various things I’ve collected to show how the form of Mickey Mouse has changed. He’s gone from a scrappy, mischievous little mouse with a smaller head and a pointy noise to a friendlier mouse with a much larger head, eyes, and rounder body.
