The Lefts and Rights of Passage

http://www.disneysfolly.comMore from this Domain

Which direction are we inclined to go when visiting Disney theme parks? Are people more inclined to go to the left or the right in Magic Kingdom, Epcot, etc.? In this case, going to the left would follow the natural clockwise progression of a circle whereas going to the right would run counter-clockwise but would appeal to the vast majority’s handedness.

Roy E. Disney Sails Away

http://www.disneysfolly.comMore from this Domain

Unfortunately, today we lost our friend Roy E. Disney to cancer. It won't be the lead news story nor will it rank high among the tabloid-friendly deaths that have plagued the entertainment industry this year. But the impact of his death will be felt by a lot of people, because the impact of his LIFE was felt by so many people, most of whom never realized who he was or why he was so important.

Exploring the Magic on Your Desktop

http://www.disneysfolly.comMore from this Domain

While Disney has a presence in this market, the theme parks are almost entirely absent from the software and gaming media. That is, except for the Walt Disney World Explorer CD-ROM which arrived in the mid-‘90s.

Music To Our Ears: Los Lobos Goes Disney

http://www.disneysfolly.comMore from this Domain

Don't call Los Lobos Goes Disney a children's record. While some of these songs are essentially targeted towards children, the reality is that the original songs were universally beloved by adults and children alike. That said, this album goes a long way towards deconstructing why that is.

An Island of New Discoveries

http://www.disneysfolly.comMore from this Domain

Disney's Folly once mused that Disney was going to bring a Lost-themed attraction to the former Discovery Island location. With the show off the air now, I doubt that Disney would ever come close to developing the island based on a syndication-unfriendly niche show. But that doesn't mean there aren't a multitude of valid, profitable ideas out there to take over Discovery Island.
