This day in Disney History- March 27th, 1961- Snow White Grotto opens in Fantasyland at Disneyland Park.  Unique just for Disneyland, it was designed by imagineer John Hench. When in first production, each statue of the dwarfs were accidently made the same height. Hench solved this by the use of forced perspective by placing Snow White at the top of the waterfall to make her proportioned to the seven dwarfs and her animal friends.  In 1983, the voice of Snow White, Adriana Castelotti, recorded the song "I'm Wishing" for the background music for the re-grand opening of Fantasyland. Today, this place acts as a very scenic area and a hidden gem of the park. Also, all of the coins that are thrown into the wishing well are donated to benefit children's charities.

This place has always had a special place in my heart, it's very calm and peaceful. I made a wish a few years ago and 10 months later it came true ;) - MrsGrumpy2002  209.2 #1885 10:26AM

The white, marble figurines depicting Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs arrived anonymously from Italy as a gift for Walt Disney. They were sculpted from Italian marble. - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 11:37AM
