Designing Disney’s Theme Parks: The Architecture of Reassurance offers an examination of the influence of Disneyland on both our built environment and our architectural imagination. Tracing the relationship of the Disney parks to their historical ancestors, the publication charts Disneyland’s evolution from one man’s personal dream to a multinational enterprise, a process in which the Disney “magic” moved ever closer to the real world.
