Notes on the Geography of Germany: Rothenberg ob der Tauber: Photo 22
Would the lure of the place be as strong if its inauthenticity were understood? Answer: probably yes. After all, Disneyland is a popular place, and few object to its recreation of distant places. Hagen in fact reports a conversation with a Disney World designer who was asked how Disney had represented Germany. The reply was that the place "we primarily thought of was Rothenburg ob der Tauber... Everything was somehow inspired by Rothenburg" (2006, pp. 293-4). So Disney's Germany is a copy of a copy.
