How Disney Inspires People To Travel

Travelers Today       By    Glory Moralidad

Disney's most beloved films had inspired people to travel more, especially when they realized that the animated locations were actually copied from real-life locations, as Travelers Today previously reported. In fact, Disney invites people all over the world to experience their "magic" not only in Disneyland but to these actual destinations itself, albeit unconsciously.

The cartoon-making giant wants people to keep the magic real. Magic may be called as science in the real world, but science says people want to visit these iconic destinations found in the movies because they want to feel what it is like in the films.

It made people wonder: Does Merida from "Brave" felt like as you do when you venture or ride horses in the Scottish glen? How do you think the Mardi Gras from "The Princess and the Frog" was like? Do beignets look like that in real life?

The destination itself wanted us to travel. It's tourism on the part of the establishments and countries featured in the film. The Paradise Falls from the movie "Up" is based from Angel Falls of Venezuela, which is considered as the highest waterfall in the world. Smarter Travel wrote that the falls is one of the country's top tourist attractions, and it would take travelers a half-day trip to go there. But in the words of Ellie, the main protagonist's late wife, "Adventure is out there!"

Disney gets you to travel and join a cause. "Finding Nemo" and "Finding Dory" have spiked consumerism of the fish species, and many people wanted to grab one for themselves. It caused a global problem because these fish were taken from their ecosystem to be placed in aquariums only to just die at the hands of people who don't know how to take care of them.

Alternatively, many activists and organizations call on people to observe the fish in the reef where they belong through different conservation programs, thus jacking up the touristy, coastal spots again. For example, a friendly snorkel in Australia's Great Barrier Reef is one great way to learn about the species, USA Today reported.
