Transcript of Walt Disney World Cell Analogy

Walt Disney World Cell Analogy
Cell Wall
The cell wall is made of mostly cellulose, and it provides support as it surrounds the outside of the cell. The parking gates surround the entire Walt Disney World property and protect it from anything outside.
Chloroplasts contain chlorophyll which uses sunlight to make food from carbon dioxide and water. Likewise, the Land in Epcot uses the foods grown in their greenhouse to make all of the foods they serve.
Inside the cell is filled with cytoplasm which encompasses the organelles, the cytosol, and the particles suspended in it. This is comparable to the air in the Magic Kingdom. The air on Main Street is special because it smells like vanilla that seems to come from the Nestle Toll House Bakery, but this is not true. The smell (which is actually chemically manufactured) is piped into the street from a window above the store.
The nucleus controls all the functions of the cell and is often referred to as the brain. Similarly, Walt Disney controlled his theme parks and every detail inside them.
Endoplasmic Reticulum
The endoplasmic reticulum also moves proteins and lipids throughout the cell. In the same way, the tunnels beneath the parks allow characters and cast members to travel throughout the parks.
The characters inspire the rides in Walt Disney World which can be likened to ribosomes. Just like rides provide excitement and adrenaline for the guests, ribosomes build proteins for the cell.
The cell membrane is just inside the cell wall; it surrounds the cytoplasm, and is semipermeable as it controls what enters and exits the cell. This is represented by the ticket gates at the theme parks.
Cell Membrane
The nucleolus is inside the nucleus and makes ribosomes. This is represented by Walt Disney’s imaginative brain. He created countless characters including Mickey Mouse (originally named Oswald) who is now the icon of Walt Disney World.
These characters, the movies they are in, and other ideas related to them are locked in the Disney Vault. In the same way, a central vacuole holds all excess materials, including waste and water.
Central Vacuole
The guests pay money to visit Walt Disney World so the parks can keep running. This money is like the energy generated by the mitochondria.
The Golgi apparatus move materials in and out of the cell like the monorail moves people in and out of each park.
