One of my favorite kinds of blogs from the amazing writers at the Oh My Disney is called “graphing our emotions,” in which they imagine our emotional reactions to different Disney movies.  (I’ve linked their post to Pirates of the Caribbean for you.)

Being a teacher, I enjoy seeing information presented in a variety of ways, as the use of graphic organizers is a common yet effective tool in my classroom.  They help us to see information in a different way and to develop connections in new ways.  (Sorry, getting off the teacher soapbox.)

Anyway, it all got me to thinking about one of my favorite kind of graphic organizer—the Venn diagram–and how we could use one to spark discussion of our beloved Disney here on the blog.  So, I have a trial run of a game for you.  Below, I have a Venn diagram with 2 different Walt Disney World locations listed.  Your job is to identify the best similarity you can identify between the two (without stating obvious things, like–they are both in Walt Disney World, both are a source of revenue, both have a common letter in their name….)

We will look at the answers that come in, and in my best teacher way, will award a WDW Radio Mystery Ticket to the individual(s) with the most clever or unique similarity between the two.

So, here we go: what do these Walt Disney World locations have in common?
