From Caryl Rivers, author of numerous works on gender, culture and family issues…

“He knew he’d have to go to Disney World eventually. It’s middle-class America’s version of a pilgrimage to Mecca.  Every family that can scrape up the cash must make the long and arduous journey to a shrine peopled with more minor deities than the slopes of Mount Olympus: Mickey, Donald, Huey, Louie, and Dewey. With frayed nerves and tattered wallets the faithful stream through the turnstiles of the Magic Kingdom, intent on giving every child his or her birthright: The opportunity to gawk at a six foot duck in a blue jacket.”
