6. STAR Moment

6.1.1. I can remember taking my first trip to Disney with my family.

6.1.2. As I entered into a world of imagination and "anything goes", the park was so aesthetically pleasing.

6.1.3. Many graphics caught my attention, but the greatest one was the story that the image I was seeing was telling me. While in Tomorrowland, I saw a poster for the ride "Space Mountain". Hearing the name, it didn't spark my attention because it didn't mention Mickey and space doesn't interest me very much either. Visually seeing the poster, it presented a graphic that looked like it was moving. It made you want to venture inside the mountain to see what it looked like on the inside. The astronaut displayed in his space craft looked like he was coming towards you! He looked like he was going so fast he was going to come off the page. It was this STAR MOMENT, that made me realize how much influence a visual graphic can have on the mind.
