Disney Storytelling: Disney Wordless Wednesday

Today’s Wordless Wednesday theme is Disney Storytelling. I wanted to keep things simple because ultimately everything about Disney represents storytelling in some form!

I have decided to showcase these small statues in the Magic Kingdom that represent the early movies and cartoons. This to me, encapsulates Disney storytelling perfectly.

So lets jump in and get started straight away with this week’s:

Wordless Wednesday – Disney Storytelling

These statues were a familiar sight for me on every visit but have recently been moved.

 

The Donald mini statue in it's old location on the Castle hub in the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
I’m not angry, I’m just mis-understood

The photos were all taken a little while ago in their old location around the castle hub.

 

The Dumbo mini statue in it's old location on the Castle hub in the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
I’ve heard a Diamond Ring…

I’ve always appreciated the tribute to famous classic Disney characters. There’s something so simple and understated about them.

They were also easily overlooked due to their size which made me appreciate them more.

 

The Chip and Dale mini statue in it's old location on the Castle hub in the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
Mischief managed!

Not to mention they represented some of my favourite characters!

 

The Brer Rabbit mini statue in it's old location on the Castle hub in the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
I have this great story to tell you

Or came from iconic stories, even if they did later become a little controversial.

 

The Goofy mini statue in it's old location on the Castle hub in the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World
Gawrsh!

Plus some that were a part of the Disney magic from the very beginning.

 

The Minnie mini (!) statue in it's old location on the Castle hub in the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Not to mention one very loyal and patient girlfriend.

 

These mini statues were removed from the castle hub to create more space in the area but I hear they are back and scattered around the new pathways to be enjoyed once more.

I do have one last photo to share. I couldn’t write about Disney storytelling without including the main man himself (with his main mouse!).
