Much of the attention goes to the Partners Statue featuring Walt and Mickey in the Magic Kingdom, but the Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse park bench is worth the time to find. Find? Well, the bench moves around throughout the year. Most of the time the bench is located by the flagpole just inside the park entrance, but on this day it was over by the Fire Department to make room for Limited Time Magic’s Long Lost Characters Week.
I was walking around Epcot’s Spaceship Earth and my attention was drawn to the stainless steel panels at the base near the queue entrance. I walked over and held my camera above my head with the lens resting in the seem created by the two panels and fired away. The original shot was OK, but the lines gave me an idea for a modified version. I started first firing up the Tron Legacy soundtrack in iTunes and went for it. This first version, Enter the Grid, reminds me of some of the merchandise that was sold in the parks to promote to movie.
Then few minutes later it hit me…. What would it look like inside the grid?……..
I look forward to Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival each year. The park explodes with color and character based topiaries. You can find these topiaries scattered around the World year round, but the best time to view them all in one place is at the annual festival.
