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  1205.4 #118 7:24AM
💏 Very romantic indeed! Thank you MyPark! So glad you enjoy these! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 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  1815.0 #73 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  5778.4 #14 10:00PM

😍😍😍😍 awww nice to see you Moz. Missed you around these here parts! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 10:02PM
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  801.8 #194 10:46AM

I've never done a mousewait meet up... Where do I go... - Disneygrl35  2.1 #55977 12:50PM
If you're there today, you can make HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 'S POTC meetup at 6 pm. Usually they will gather across from the ride entrance. Perhaps along the fence area of the Riverbelle Terrace. Look for a fairly large group of fun-loving people. Many will have their mouse ears on. Your hostess, Ms Churro, will be leading the way. Just dive right in and ask, 'excuse me. Is this the Mousewait meetup?'  You won't be sorry!  Disneygrl35 - MeridaFan  3439.0 #28 2:09PM
Thanks so much for the info MeridaFan!!!😊😊 - Disneygrl35  2.1 #55977 2:19PM
We are meeting at the Petrified tree in Frontierland- to the left of the Mark Twain Riverboat entrance. Thanks MeridaFan😘😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4477.0 #20 4:45PM

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

unForecast for week of December 22, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-12am (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday) 8am-11pm (Wednesday); DCA: 8am-11pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday), 8am-10pm (Wednesday).

Reminder to check out the new "Freeze the Night", apart of Frozen Fun in Hollywood Land every night. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be busy this week, Monday and Tuesday, with CIs in the 80s in Disneyland Park and in the 70s in DCA. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are hard to predict, crowd wise, as it is sometimes busy and sometimes crowded. Then expect it to be busy the rest of the weekend. 

Merry Christmas!  - BaseballMickey_CM Dec 22, 2014 12:07PM
