    started a topic Walt Disney World

    Walt Disney World

    Considering Disney is a giant corporation with an insane amount of power and control of mass media and entertainment, based on the use of fairy tales, and that their main park is located near Miamy that was the main setting of first edition Lost, I want to know if you ever used them on your stories.
    From a Chronicle of Darkness perspective, it would make a lot of sense if their administrators were either the Gentry or very powerful Changelings. I think Gentry would make sense, since they are making fairy tales less scary (therefore making people easier to prey) while influencing people into a magical reality that maybe has a direct influence on Arcadia itself.
    Another spin is that the park could be a freehold, it is just plain easy for any changeling to get desire and fear (the ghost themes attractions) there (anger and sorrow would be tricky). And they can probably even walk without their mask and people would just think they are part of the show.

    Bargain time now.

    Main Street USA Court Bargain:

    The fae must make the changelings feel at home. More specifically, of the home they no longer have. So much so that they wish that they had their old life back. Be it the tune from that ear-worm of a Top 100, the school dance when they shared their first kiss, or that one trip to the beach when you laughed as your older brother wiped out when he tried to surf.
    Technically "Wreck It Ralph 2" will have a feeling like this. Sure, it is a shameless ad in movie format to make kids visit the Disney website. But apart from that it will show the many different themed worlds they have: princesses, stormtroopers, etc, away from their main "home" and interacting with each other.

    Like, the idea behind the World Showcase pavilions is that they're, as one YTer put it, "Nations in 5 Seconds". To do a micro-overview (approved by Disney) of each nation. So I think these Courts being microcosms of the nation's myths and fae could still work...in addition to having the trods lead to the nations they represent.

    For Animal Kingdom it could be that way...however.

    The mission statement of AK has always been to celebrate three categories of animals: the animals of today, the animals of the distant past, and the animals of fiction. So it would be something like:

    Animal Court (Africa + Asia) Court

    Dinosaur Court

    Pandora Court

    Beastly Court [Lost Court]

    For Epcot...actually I would say it's more like there's two Freeholds in one park.

    The pavilions are big enough with a broad enough concept to deserve their own Courts. That Future World and World Showcase own concepts are big enough to accommodate these concepts. So...

    Freehold of the Future

    Progress (Spaceship Earth?) Court

    Communications Court

    Energy Court

    Motion Court

    The Land Court

    The Seas Court

    Space Court

    Imagination Court

    Freehold of the World

    Court of the USA

    Court of Japan

    Court of Morocco

    Court of France

    Court of the UK

    Court of Canada

    Court of Mexico

    Court of Norway

    Court of China

    Court of Germany

    Court of Italy

    I'd say the Main Street Court could do that. It would work as a, relatively speaking, neutral court.

    ...technically the wrong park, since old Uncle Walt is "supposed" to be in the Anaheim park.

    ~Unless if the California park and Florida parks are more literal mirrors of each other then we'd thought~
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here's what I can think of for today:

    Fantasyland Court

    Ruler Title: Prince or Princess
    Court Emotion: Wonder
    Bargain:
    Contracts: Bibibity Boppity Buddies, There Are No Strings on You

    Adventureland Court

    Ruler Title: Skipper
    Court Emotion: Excitement
    Bargain:
    Contracts: Dead Men Do Tell Tales, Down the Backside of Water
