Visit the website http://yesterland.com/. This website documents old rides and attractions that no longer exist at Disneyland as well as at other Disney parks. Browse around for a bit. Then do the following:
- Select a ride or attraction on Yesterland that used to be at Disneyland but is no longer there. Specifically, select one that you think couldn’t exist today because of changing societal opinions, beliefs, or perceptions– one that would offend people or confuse people or frighten people.
- Write a post of at least 500 words in which you do the following:
- Briefly describe the attraction. Tell us when it was active and when it was removed or shut down. Include a link to the yesterland page for the attraction.
- Discuss why you think this attraction couldn’t or shouldn’t exist at the park today. This will require you to rhetorically analyze the attraction and make an argument about how it would be perceived differently by a modern audience.
In your argument, you must use at least one outside source that can help inform your reader about
the relevant historical/cultural/social context– either context from the time of the attraction that made the attraction acceptable then, or information about modern times that helps your reader understand what would make the attraction unacceptable nowadays. (The website may have an opinion about why the attraction was closed down, but I’m more interested in what you have to say– please come up with your own argument here and avoid using Yesterland as your required outside source!)
