    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.”

    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.

    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.
