    Abstract

    This dissertation deconstructs the Disney™ World Resort Park. The focus of the analysis is on Disney™ theme parks, specifically concerned with the Disney™ park nexus of the 'Magic Kingdom' in 'Disney™ World Florida. Completely deconstructing certain dramaturgical devices through the hyperreal critique using this discourse to really explain how this theatrical and conceptual canon of the parks completely commodifies hegemony and American nostalgia. Dissecting its dramaturgy to see how incorporating a hyperreal immersive experience helps to sell a conservative ideology to parks participants. When delving into the historiography of Disney™ exploring the capital growth from storytelling beginnings to its world dominating present, you see how the exploring the capital growth from storytelling beginnings to its world dominating present, you see how the Disney™ Corporation is a conservative commodity pushing and ,encouraging its hegemonic message. The parks express certain connotations being commodified like dream construction and heterono1mative hegemony tl1ese being exercised through film and advertisement. In addition attempting to identify a consensus for how Disney™ represent their ideology through live action performance.

    In a dichotomise state between dramaturgy and ideology this paper starts to analysis the effect on gender performativity through a concept of cultural industries where through conformist theatre art is worthless. In the deconstruction of the Magic Kingdom performance of 'Dream along with Mickey' this will appropriate gender and the implication of that on art. Thus, concluding that because Disney™ is a commodity of huge proportion that Disney™ don't just perform certain hegemony they construct it.
