    I also posted on the blog about Downtown Disney. I have never been to the Jazz Kitchen, but It seems like a fun place to eat at. I love Downtown Disney and enjoy going down there. It is a fun trip and a fun experience without having to spend a ton of money to get into Disneyland. I agree with you that it gives people the feeling of being in a Disneyland environment without having to spend a bunch of money on a ticket. I think it’s a great alternative for people who cannot afford Disneyland.

    Take it a bit further. Here you have a sanitized version of a New Orleans jazz club in the heart of a tourist district in white bread Orange County. Think about America’s attitudes toward the city of New Orleans as a place of sin, debauchery, blackness, and especially post Katrina violence and poverty much of which more conservative circles in America fear and want to hide under the cultural rug. In downtown Disney, one can experience a New Orleans style evening without confronting the problems associated with or imagined in New Orleans. In other words Disney provides a white washed, consumer driven vision of New Orleans.
