Transcript of Disney the Magic Kingdom

By: Brianna Huntoon the Magic Kingdom or the Evil Empire? Disney the Magic Kingdom Many people wonder as to whether or not Disney is good or bad for children. I believe it's good. There are many ways that Disney helps children, let's start with television. Disney Television Helps Children! To first learn about Disney, let's start with how it first started. Disney Movies! Amusement Parks! No one should say amusement parks are bad for children! They are fun and exciting! So Disney can't be bad with it's amusement parks! ~Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior
~Disney makes shows that they know children and young adults will like. Disney Channel, in 2011, became the number one kids channel, beating Nickelodeon's 16 year run.
-To pick shows that will be on their channels, some children get to watch an episode and they explain things they liked and what they didn't.
- Kids were also asked to say what kind of food Disney is and what kind Nickelodeon was.
Results: Disney=Pizza Nickelodeon=Broccoli Disney is good for children by helping them expand their imaginations, learn to be creative, teaching them important values and school subjects in a fun and exciting way. The Beginning of Disney ~The Walt Disney Company was started by Walt and Roy Disney in 1923 to make short animation.

~Their first animation was Plane Crazy in 1928.

~Their first synchronized-sound cartoon was Steamboat Willie, featuring Mickey Mouse (1928). Walt Disney actually did the voice for Mickey Mouse.

~Disney then began making book fairy tails into movies, the first being Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1938).

~In 1954, Disney began putting shows onto television, and began building amusement parks.

~1955, a Disneyland opened in California.

~In 1971, Walt Disney opened a Disney World in Orlando, Florida, making Orlando.

~Next came a Disneyland in Tokyo (1983), France (1992), and Hong Kong (2005). ~ Disney Junior plays lots of shows that help young children learn important values (like sharing and manners), and learn things they would also learn in school (like patterns and counting). The kids don't feel like they are learning because they think they are just playing with the characters on the t.v! ~On Disney Channel they show shows that appeal more to kids in middle school, and in those shows they make characters make mistakes (like lying), or go through situations (like divorce or bullying), and show kids how to overcome these obstacles. -Disney movies are very popular with children. The most popular being the Disney princesses. Parents mostly like them because they entertain their children, and teach them important lessons. Here are some examples ~People have begun to question the values that the movies are actually teaching children. They say kids are being taught the wrong things and that some of the movies have inappropriate messages hidden in them. My thought on this is that as children we don't notice these things. I didn't noticed the hidden dirty jokes or pictures, etc, in the movies until I got older or someone pointed it out to me. ~Parent's should be ready to teach their children the right and wrongs of any movies to begin with. There are a lot more worse movies out there that some parents allow their kids to watch. Personally the movies never made me think life was how they portrayed it, since I was taught cartoon's weren't real. The most it did was make me want to dress up as a princess for Halloween and buy their toys. Disney's
Make A Wish Foundation ~Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.

~They have given wishes like the children getting to go to Disney parks and meeting the Disney characters! Others like going to other states like Hawaii, or one wanted to go to Texas to meet and hang out with some cowboys.

~These children who get their wishes to come true haven't had the greatest lives, going though lots of surgeries and pain, and I think it's sweet for Disney to do this. People may say this is for good publicity, but the children still get their wish to come true, so it's a win win situation. ~Came out in 1951

~Based on the books Alice in Wonderland, and Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

~About a girl who falls through a rabbit hole and has an adventure in a place called Wonderland

~Teaches children it's okay to be curious ~Came out in 1991

~Is about a women held hostage by a beast who she falls in love with, and later finds out he was a prince under a spell ~Teaches children that beauty comes from within ~Came out in 1964

~About a magical Nanny who helps bring a family closer together

~Teaches children that family is important ~Came out in 1994

~Tricked into thinking he killed his father, a guilt ridden lion cub flees into exile and abandons his identity as the future King

~Teaches children to be responsible ~Came out in 1940

~About a living puppet, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, must prove himself worthy to become a real boy

~Teaches children not to lie and to listen to your conscience ~Came out in 1995

~About a cowboy doll is who gets jealous when a new spaceman figure doll because the more popular toy

~Teaches children the importance of friendship ~Came out in 2012

~Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom

~Teaches children to be yourself Walt Roy Disney's Starting Something New! And it has to do with junk food! ~Disney and the First Lady have worked together to make it so that junk food, candy, and sugary cereal commercials will not being playing on the Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, RadioDisney and Disney-owned online sites

~Food commercials will have to go through strict standards aimed at kids and families

~This is suppose to help parents promote fruit and vegetables to their kids

~This will take place in 2015, and Disney is the first company to do this and they hope other companies will follow in their footsteps "I never experienced all these negative messages your experts talk about! Plus now I think there are things on TV that are a whole lot worse for kids to watch, so Disney has the right idea by infusing morals into their movies." "I think we trust Disney too blindly. I have to talk to the kids a lot about how life really is compared with how it's portrayed by Disney." ~Disney is the second largest entertainment and media company Disney Princess's ~Little girls adore the Disney princesses, and I don't think they are bad for children. They may be really skinny, and make it seem like you have to be beautiful to get a man, but they are well liked. As children grow up, they'll learn that looks and money aren't everything. The princesses also teach good lessons like be yourself, don't be selfish, be kind to others, and live your life to the fullest! This also may sound mean, but I don't think the princesses would be as popular if they were ugly. Disney has the right idea making them beautiful. Marketing ~People say Disney tricks people into buying their products through their movies, shows, and more (mostly for their children).

~Maybe they do, but everyone's happy! Disney gets the money, and the children get toys. What's not to like? Conclusion! ~Maybe it's because I grew up with Disney, but I'll always think Disney is the Magic Kingdom! It helps children expand their imagination, be creative, and teaches them important skills and values for the future! ~It also brings joy to children, though their movies, games, television shows, books, and theme parks!
