The Honeymoon

The Honeymoon

(p.139) Chapter Five The Honeymoon
Love, Inc.

Laurie Essig

University of California Press

This chapter travels to one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world: Disney World. Over a week, Essig interviewed honeymooners and couples celebrating their anniversary to ask why Disney World is “the most romantic place on earth.” Through these interviews, Essig considers how whiteness, childhood innocence, and Americanness structure the Disney honeymoon and modern love more generally.

Keywords:   honeymoon, Disney World, childhood, innocence, whiteness
