Versus: Disney v Reality

The royalty of Disney lives in beautiful palaces surrounded by magical forces. Every Princess is equipped with captivating beauty, a sunny disposition, a dream that will never die, and the ability to mesmerize any creature with her voice.
We all know the stories of Cinderella and other fairytales that have filled our hearts for years.  Disney land works wonders on children and adults alike, making it one of the most popular theme parks in the world. Disney has sold many games and merchandise over the years that it has managed to creep its stories of valor and love into everyon’s home.  Reality however finds a way to punch you in the face and sodomize your childhood dreams. Okay, it may not be that bad, but the death match is on! In the right corner at $31,743,000,000 Walt Disney Co. and in the left corner at $0.10 we have Reality.

Let’s start with the royalty of both worlds.

The royalty of Disney lives in beautiful palaces surrounded by magical forces. Every Princess is equipped with captivating beauty, a sunny disposition, a dream that will never die, and the ability to mesmerize any creature with her voice.

The Princes of this enchanting world receive an award winning smile, flawless chivalry, and the strength to take down any disaster that has befallen them, oh and they come out of it with flawless hair!

Disney doesn’t just sugar coat their royalty, they took many famous grim tales and created a delicious sundae the whole family could enjoy. We watch these movies as children and the disaster starts. Disney may possibly be unaware of what their famed Princesses do, but many of us know the rebellion waiting to be unleashed we all carry inside of us. I mean even the first Princess was a lover of men and carries a street name for cocaine. So how can we possibly assume that we are giving our children good tools to survive?

Our princesses are beautiful and practically flawless, but they don’t have the power to command legions of forest animals with their singing talent.

Now, enough bagging on the princess collection, everyone does that anyway, and let’s look at Mickey and gang. Mickey is my favorite to look at as a prime example of what not to do, this little mouse has been very sneaky and very destructive.

In the past Mickey was Steamboat Willy, he kicked Oswald the Lucky Rabbit out of Disneyland and took over, quickly taking on the name of Mickey Mouse and taking the chair as Mayor of Toon Town. This probably was his plan from the beginning, where Mickey imagined a glorious cartoon metropolis where he ruled indefinitely. Either way he shows us that he can and will do what he wants to do. He has a great act also, look at how he is the friendly mouse to everyone; he is the neighbor everyone wants.
Donald Duck is riddled with anger, and I wouldn’t put it past him to kill someone. Especially since he is Mickey’s friend, Donald could totally get away with it. Goofy is not only an escaped mental patient he also is a race of dog that is above all others making the classic Goofy and Pluto joke jump off of this text.

Who framed Roger Rabbit presents us with more characters from Mickey’s utopian metropolis and their disaster reigns over our world in a matter of seconds.
What Toon Town reminds me of is a Mafia ran Las Vegas from the 40’s. Mickey is the Godfather of Disney and Minnie is his oblivious girl.

Reality on the other hand presents its danger first, then follows with bad luck, and heartbreak. From a first glance reality seems like it would lose, but it has some tricks up its sleeve.
Reality loves to surprise and when one thing seems like it is going downhill; it quickly throws a curve ball and can bring gifts of unbridled joy. Much like a Disney movie, love and good can and often times does win. Evil however likes to take a shot at things from time to time and comes out victorious. That however makes the good even better and Reality can and will give you what you put in.

Our world may be dangerous, but at least it doesn’t have insane people with magic, rebellious princesses who have no problem bargaining with power hungry witches, and living cars.

There are a lot of similarities if you really examine Disney movies and their reality is very close to ours. Every character learns a lesson and must overcome giant obstacles to get what they want. We however don’t have to worry about Genies or women who can turn into Dragons (with the ability to breathe fire). We also don’t have to deal with Toon Town. So reality wins since it’s presumably a lot safer to live here, oh and because it’s well, reality!
Unless Disney manages to make its way here, then the chaos of Disney’s world wins.
