Credits Rolling on Main Street: Lonnie R. Lindley “Rainbow Paint Co”

Today’s window:

“Rainbow Paint Co.  

Polychromatists

Lonnie R. Lindley

World’s Largest Collection of Color Samples.”

 

Welcome back to Mouse University Online’s Credits on Main Street! First things first, we’ll break down is the window tile, and polychromatists. The definition of polychromatic is having or exhibiting a variety of colors. Rainbow Paint Company again refers to color with the description of the “World’s Largest Collection of Color Samples.” I’m quite sure that the theme of this window must have something to do with paint and color….  More…

Finding the Fourth of July in the Happiest Place on Earth

“Actually, if you could see close in my eyes, the American flag is waving in both of them and up my spine is growing this red, white and blue stripe.” -Walt Disney
 

One of the busiest days at Walt Disney World is the Fourth of July. The American holiday celebrates our country’s independence and history. With a special fireworks show, and characters in patriotic attire, this day is enjoyable for some at the parks. I personally prefer going when the crowd levels are lower.

In fact, you can find the Fourth of July at Walt Disney World year round! Attractions, details, shows. These things all link together Walt’s love of the USA. IMG_2734 More…

Credits Rolling on Main Street: M.T.Lott and Donn Tatum

Welcome to the new blog series Credits Rolling on Main Street!

What does that mean though? There aren’t credits in WDW. Or are there? Well before I explain the meaning behind the title and what this series is about, let’s step back and talk about the Magic Kingdom.

Disney is all about telling the story. Therefore the Magic Kingdom is basically a giant theater. When we talk about Main Street sometime soon, I’ll go over all the details that point towards this idea. In this series, let’s focus on the windows. When strolling down main street, you might notice that most of the windows have writing on them. Cleverly hidden meanings and names, these windows serve as tributes to the men and women who contributed to the parks. Usually it involves a fictional business name such as “Ridgeway & Company” or “Dolls by Miss Joyce.”

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (Part 2: Trivia)

 

IMG_9535                Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is definitely a step up in Walt Disney attractions with new technology and classic story. I’m a strong believer in the idea that to fully appreciate and understand the parks/attractions, you need to first learn about the history and people behind it. If you haven’t read part one of our Mine Train journey, please read about the history behind here.IMG_9842IMG_9539

 

A thing I love about this new area is it doesn’t reveal everything as once. There are trees, rocks, and boulders that give you the effect that you are wandering through the forest. Embedded in the path’s concrete are the prints of forest animals, sticks, stones, and acorns.

Oftentimes, people hate waiting in the queue and will complain. I love Imagineer Pam Rawlin’s description of how they use queues, “Time spent in our queue line is used to immerse our guests in the story.” That’s the thing about Disney parks, the story starts before you even step foot on the attraction.
