Disneyland/Disney World folklore (W18)


Our presentation sought to look into rich Disneyland and Disney World folklore that has been shared with families and friends. To do so, we interviewed not only Dartmouth students, but also a few non-Dartmouth Disney fans. We chose candidates who visited the park more five or more times to learn more about authentic Disney folklore. Through our research, we were able to discover unique legends, games, and superstitions related to the two parks. Our research revealed that a diverse variety of groups have a deep and meaningful engagement with the parks.
