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!! - MyPark  1288.8 #155 7:24AM
💏 Very romantic indeed! Thank you MyPark! So glad you enjoy these! - Duchess_SMK  6631.1 #22 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  1960.8 #96 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  6631.1 #22 10:00PM

😍😍😍😍 awww nice to see you Moz. Missed you around these here parts! - Duchess_SMK  6631.1 #22 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  802.2 #271 10:46AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! 😄 - secretagentangel  9284.8 #11 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10493.2 #9 9:55PM

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  3083.1 #52 11:41PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the lounge😑 - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14042 10:12AM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. 😓 - Mouse28  830.2 #253 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  830.2 #253 9:06AM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  163.3 #2643 3:57PM

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  9284.8 #11 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  3614.0 #48 10:28PM
