Welcome friends and thanks for stopping by The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we gather with Disney Bloggers to link up and share our #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday vacation picture posts.The theme this week is, History.I chose to share a bit of Disney History with my pictures this week. If you are a Disney fan I'm sure you know this bit of trivia but I thought I'd share it just in case you missed it in all your Disney trivia reading.
The bronze Partners Statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse is located in the hub of the Magic Kingdom and is one of the most popular photo spots in Disney World. I find it almost impossible to walk by day or night and not take a picture of it.
Notice how Walt is pointing down Main Street, USA. Some believe he's pointing to the future and others believe he's pointing to the the Sharing the Magic statue that is usually located in Town Square, depicting Roy O. Disney sitting with Minnie Mouse on a park bench. Both statues were expertly sculpted by veteran Imagineer Blaine Gibson who was also an animator on many classic Disney films.
Next time you're in the Magic Kingdom stop and take a closer look at some of the details. That is after you've taken a few pics.
Upon closer inspection of his tie clasp you'll notice the letters STR. The letters STR represent The Smoke Tree Ranch, a development in Palm Springs, California, where Walt Disney had a vacation home.
Time to link up your Wordless Wednesday...
Did you notice last week how I goofed the theme up last week? I bet you did. I am so sorry. Today is supposed to be the Letter "T" but you can post History too.
I hope you'll have fun anyway choosing between the two.
