Theme Parks and Generations - Lemanic - 09-10-2020

So, this might be a stretch, but Theme Parks often reflect the values of yesterlife i.e the values of a saeculum ago.

What we are seeing now is that Theme Parks now, especially WDW and USW, are incorporating the "Classic Shopping Mall of the 1945 to 1965 format" experience. As malls are are going obsolete now, the format are trying to find a way home and has slowly realized that its future lies in the theme parks. The fact that every ride and section have its own store is a big reflection of this. And it will extrapolate exponentially once "The Mall" isn't the norm anymore.

The future is dire for bohemians though. After this, the thought of a "Woodstock Land" at WDW won't be far off.
