Cinderella’s Castle, found in Walt Disney World in Florida and Tokyo Disneyland, is an iconic architectural structure of the Disney company known around the world. It’s based on a fairy tale castle of fiction, so why not theorize on how to hypothetically overtake it in a fictional war?
That’s just what Sergeant Jonathan Kirk Davis of the US Marine Corps did on Quora. In a military campaign dubbed “Operation It’s a Small War After All,” he explains in detail how to overtake the Magic Kingdom — using modern warfare technology because “fortifications defending the Magic Kingdom and housing its troops was built with modern technology and therefore should be also considered a target for modern warfare.”
Sgt. Davis continues:
Two infantry companies would then lead the charge, one through Tomorrowland, and one through Main Street, USA — while being cautious of any futuristic traps or attacks in underground tunnels. Once those areas are fortified, the attack comes not from the front of Cinderella’s Castle, but from behind. Sgt. Davis states:
Once the castle’s defenses are occupied in Fantasyland, the companies stationed in Main Street, USA charge from the front, eventually taking control of the structure.
As fun and good-humored this all sounds, I’d like to add a bit of advice to Sgt. Davis’ military strategy: simply wait to attack after midnight, when all of Cinderella’s defense vehicles have turned back into pumpkins.
