interesting...never heard of someone putting Disney World and Mickey Mouse in such a religious context, however. But everyone sees the world differently through their eyes.

Spirit of Disney World taken at faith value
By Rabbi Jonathan R. Katz
Congregation Achduth Vesholom
More than 25 years ago at Disney World, I had a friend snap a picture of me swearing on a pretend Bible that, if blessed with children, I would never take them to “The Mouse.”

There are many religious/moral/ethical themes that can be found in most Disney ventures, including WDW. There is even a book written about "The Gospel of Disney". Walt Disney came from a very conservative Christian family and his works showed that side even though Uncle Walt was not what you would call a religious man from what I have read about him. I am glad the good rabbi came to the realization that Disney is indeed good and gave his child the opportunity to witness and enjoy the Disney magic.
