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!! - MickeyFan  1205.7 #157 7:24AM
💏 Very romantic indeed! Thank you MyPark! So glad you enjoy these! - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 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  1951.3 #94 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  6549.5 #19 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 #246 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 month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.7 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7519 11:53PM

I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!👏👏👏 - secretagentangel  7412.3 #14 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2872.9 #52 10:28PM
