  • [Chat] I can't believe I never spotted that before...

    Just this past weekend, I finally took a good look at the gold railing on the main parapet of Sleeping Beauty Castle and noticed the cursive "WD" in the center. I'm almost embarrassed never to have seen it before because I'm normally very observant about things like that.

    Of course, one of the great things about Disneyland is the way it still has the capacity to surprise you no matter how many times you go there.

    What details have you missed for years and then finally noticed one day?

    In the Haunted Mansion. From the outside the roof is squared off, but when you come out of the attic you are right next to a section of roof that is at an almost 45 degree angle.
    Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want!

      Yeah, there's a significant mismatch between the Greek Revival architecture of the actual exterior and the mansard roof with numerous dormers seen outside the attic.

        Last month, I noticed something in POTC. Right as you're leaving the ship fortress/cannon scene, and about to enter the room with Carlos in the well, if you look up towards the left, you see the silhouettes of pirates sword-fighting projected onto the walls. Never noticed that before, ever.

          The 'D' is quite clear, but I'm not sure about the 'W.'
          and...

          silhouettes of pirates sword-fighting projected onto the walls

          That was part of the Depp make-over as I recall.
          As for myself, I most recently noticed in the final turn before boarding Peter Pan that one of the lantern holders is the good Captain's own hook!

            Having just looked at an excellent photo, you're right. I was looking from an oblique angle and it was nighttime, and the combination of curlicues and shadows seemed to make a W next to the D.

              Good morning, son
              In twenty years from now
              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
              And I can tell you 'bout today
              And how I picked you up and everything changed
              It was pain
              Sunny days and rain
              I knew you'd feel the same things...

                Sometimes the projection is hard to make out, which could account for the fact people don't notice it. Sometimes it comes across more of a blur than actual action.

                          On my last trip I noticed Alice in the Alice in Wonderland ride for my first time. I never knew she was in the ride before.

                                    I don't remember exactly where she is, but she's kind of down and to the right of you. I think she was in the garden, but I'm probably totally wrong. Someone else here can probably remember better than I can, I haven't been to Disneyland in a couple years.

                                      Yes, she is down to the right as you are leaving the garden/singing flower scene. She is just standing there in the shadows... I am not sure why she is there? I just noticed her myself recently!!

                                        AFter the flowers in the "Golden Afternoon" you will see the hookah smoking caterpillar. Look behind you and to the right and there she is!
