Ok, this is a bit of an odd request, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of any universities where there's a Disney related module included as part of a film studies course.
Part of the indoctrination/orientation into the Disney way for new castmembers at Walt Disney World is taking "Traditions" at Disney University. It's pretty much a long-ass 5-hour primer that glosses over Disney's life, the company's better known films/products/celebrities, quickie resort and park information, followed by a seminar on proper Disney and work behavior, look, expectations, etc. The actual Disney-related parts isn't much (read: the bigger a Disney fan you are, the more you already know so it's a rehash), but still quite interesting.
The only part I enjoyed in the class was the game, where we broke up into groups, and each group had about a minute to write down as many DAC characters as they knew. Our group won, mainly because my friends gave me the paper and pen and just said, "Go, Albert!". A minute and 40-odd characters later, we got these little plastic Disney figurines as our prize.
Most of the other classes for Disney U are business/marketing/hospitality classes and I don't think I've read about an actual Disney studies class there. If there was one, I'd definitely take it.
