Disney Entertainment

     The essence of Disney entertainment is ultimateness. More than an amusement park, the Magic Kingdom is a pilgrimage like place, as long as it is able to grant, in its role-assigning power, the facing of ultimateness, the right to believe on purpose, either with or without the help of sensory illusion. Such right coincides, of course, with the ability to receive Walt Disney's most generous gift: the gift of givingness. For, to face ultimateness in what you see, is to give it final validity, to turn it into a law.
    When you see Alice in the parks, for instance, she isn't just a fiction, a "fooling", but the command to be seen as the definitive Alice, the command, that is, to give her ultimate validity.
