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 the story of Snow Whites wishing well. I first heard about it on the "Walk in Walts footsteps" tour. These kind of fun facts make Disneyland so charming. Thank you for sharing!! - YourGhostHostess  207.5 #2065 6:43AM
Oh! I'd just love to go on that tour someday! I agree! So many magical stories! Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6634.7 #24 9:57AM

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  1298.8 #165 7:24AM
💏 Very romantic indeed! Thank you MyPark! So glad you enjoy these! - Duchess_SMK  6634.7 #24 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 #104 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  6634.7 #24 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  802.2 #285 10:46AM

Not sure I understand the ranking here. Is this based on new math? Shouldn't the person with the most points be first? 🤔 - redsoxcarlos  7181.2 #21 9:36PM
Based on new math! 😂😂😂 New math is #yuckporridge.  - SassafrasDavis  1033.9 #227 11:29AM

They come in rarely (once last year for one, a couple on the others, one it's been awhile,  to be exact) but they still had the most news points so they're there till others add to their totals.  - secretagentangel  15428.0 #6 1:39PM

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  5673.6 #28 11:41PM
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  946.2 #241 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  946.2 #241 9:06AM
I had the same issues more so in the park  - Plumiegirl  10920.9 #11 5:42PM
Same here  - Melody_CM  43369.8 #1 7:57AM
And I can only load videos from the non platinum MW  - Plumiegirl  10920.9 #11 9:02PM
I have even worse issues when I load it on my Galaxy S3 !!!LOL - TheHubs  227.9 #1794 8:58PM
I've been having typing issues recently. Like, I type.. and the app has a severely hard time keeping up with me. Delayed typing. Oh, and I have the Galaxy S5 - ministrychick77  307.8 #1006 4:03PM
