Good morning! This day in Disney history, April 9th, 1961. At Disneyland, Walt Disney himself dedicates the Snow White Wishing Well & Grotto - adjacent to Sleeping Beauty Castle. According to legend, crates from Italy containing the marble statues arrived anonymously one day at the Disney Studios. Walt selected Imagineer John Hench to come up w/ a solution on how to display the statues in Disneyland. The anonymous sculptor had based the look &proportions of the statues on a set of licensed Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs soaps. All of the figures in the soap set were roughly the same size meaning that Snow White was as tall (or as short!) as the Dwarfs. John Hench’s solution to this scale problem was the use of forced perspective. Placing Snow White @ the top, the dwarves in a vertical arrangement, & having an under-scaled deer sculpted to stand next to Snow White. In addition, the waterfall begins @ Snow White’s feet & grows wider as it falls, enhancing the illusion of height. The statues of the Seven Dwarfs were placed closer to the wide bottom of the waterfall reinforcing the illusion that the Dwarfs were smaller than Snow White. John Hench designed the Snow White Grotto Wishing Well after the well in the film where Snow White sings the song “I’m Wishing” & first encounters the prince. Walt decided that the money collected from the well would be donated to Variety Clubs International, “who will use the money for their charitable work among the needy.” Do you love this attraction? Why is it special for YOU?

I love this area! I love when princesses come over here to meet everyone. It's a perfect place for princesses, sweethearts, quiet time, romance, and Disney magic. (Also a great picture spot!). This is a hidden treasure in the park. I love learning more about it! Thank you for another great Disney History, SMK! You're awesome!! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #136 7:24AM
💏 Very romantic indeed! Thank you MyPark! So glad you enjoy these! - Duchess_SMK  6163.0 #16 10:13AM
Having only heard part of the story and thinking the sculptor was hired to do the pieces, I wondered why, if it wasn't deliberate like so many other forced perspective projects, they didn't just sculpt another. I enjoy viewing the details of these sculptures and noticed recently these are the poses and expressions I most recognize the dwarfs in on pins and tshirts and stuff. Thank you Duchess for sharing the full story and the history. - GrumpyPirateDad  1845.9 #84 7:30AM
Something tells me Italian marble ain't cheap. 😂 I've never thought to look at the dwarves faces and think of merchandise. Lol looking forward to taking a closer look next time! Thank YOU as aways sir for taking the time to read and comment! - Duchess_SMK  6163.0 #16 10:00PM

I love this area...when I'm the only one there! It can be so quiet and personal. Our tradition is to throw a penny in the well and make a wish every visit. But...it has to done a certain way! The penny has to be your birth year (or a year that's important!), turn your back to the well and with your right hand, throw the penny over your left shoulder. If it goes straight into the water without hitting the grates, your wish will come true! 💫 - Gia  802.0 #215 10:46AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of August 31, 2015
Look for light crowds this week until Labor Day weekend begins on Friday. Disneyland and California Adventure will close early for the second week in a row (DL 9pm, DCA 8pm). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 50s (approx 60% capacity) -- that means it was a very slow week. Even Labor Day last year (which fell on the 1st) averaged in the mid 70s, which is light for a holiday. Now that most schools are back in session, we should see lighter crowds at the Parks until Halloweentime begins! To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 31, 2015 9:23PM
