We've been going to Disney's Boardwalk since for ten years now ( here's a post showing our first visit, I think...back in March of 2012) and have come to really love and appreciate this resort area of Walt Disney World. Sure, the Magic Kingdom resorts have the monorail, the electric water pageant and Magic Kingdom Fireworks. But the Epcot resorts have walking-to two parks, the Skyliner and the Boardwalk area. On a recent walk around the Boardwalk, I came across this sign that is situated right on the border between the Yacht Club and the Swan and Dolphin bridge that evokes one of those old-time-y vacation postcards. It has a cute Walt Disney World Resort postmark on the top, even. But, the part that jumped out to me was the copy in the red bar across the bottom: "Come to the Showplace of the Shore". That's a new-to-me tagline for the resort area. See the signage below: A quick spin around the Google machine shows me, however, that is his NOT a new tag

There are these lovely little entrance plaques at some Disney parks that feature a quote from Walt Disney at the opening of Disneyland in Anaheim. As you walk through the entrance tunnels, you can look up/over and see these and smile and remember that the whole thing was in one dude's mind. Pretty amazing. I posted the one at the Magic Kingdom in Florida here on the blog back in 2016. This one, in Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris is a bit different. First, the dual language thing, of course. But also the phrases are different. Magic Kingdom : ...and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy. Disneyland Park: ...and enter worlds of history, discovery and ageless fantasy.
Yesterday, I shared some of the details from my second visit to Tokyo DisneySea including how their "Mainstreet" is different than the typical Disney Park. But, as you can imagine, there are quite a few *other* ways that the Tokyo parks are different from the one you visit in Orlando or Anaheim. Of course, part of the difference is the guests and their behavior. From the amazing costume'ing that guests wear at the Disney parks in Tokyo to the food items (the popcorn flavors!), there's so much to take in that is big picture stuff. But there's also little tiny details that caught my eye. One of them is this sign in the men's room. It says: Clean Hands, Happy Faces! That's a nice sentiment, isn't it?
Yesterday, I posted a photo of a Walt Disney quote from a construction sign . Today is another. This one rings true, doesn't it? Or maybe is just a massive an understatement from Walt himself. This is from the same wall that the "everybody needs deadlines" quote sign that adorned the Disney Skyliner Station construction site outside the backdoor of Epcot at the International Gateway. You can peek at this post and see that the signs are the same theme. "I believe in being an innovator." -Walt Disney Full archive of the Walt Disney World construction signs (cleverly sponsored by Stanley Black and Decker) featuring quotes from Walt Disney can be found here. This is the seventh in the collection. One other thing that they've added to the construction wall since we were last there is this Disney Skyliner sign that shows some of the art on the gondolas and the map of the Skyliner. Nat and I were talking and she pointed out something:
This is one of the Walt Disney quotes that seems to resonate really strongly with me. These are, of course, posted on construction walls around WDW. And I've documented them over the past few years. The first one that I can find in the archives is this one that reads "Everyone needs deadlines" and was placed on the construction walls outside of the International Gateway . I posted it in July of last year. These are nice ways to dress up construction walls and in a cute way keep Walt's legacy alive. But this one about standing still... Between my wandering mind and my intense focus on different subjects at specific intervals in time, I really feel that this is something that hits home. Now....I'm not talking about standing still in the sense of being 'out there'. Nat will tell you...I'm a homebody. But, in terms of not repeating the things we do everyday and learning more about different things. Birding is a prime example. A y
Yesterday, I posted another in the series of Walt Disney quotes on construction signs down at Walt Disney World in Florida. All of them are sponsored by Stanley. Today...here's another one. This one hits me right in the belly because it is a big part of the reason why we keep going back: The joy that I get to share with my children. Together. This now has become a 'thing' on the blog where I can document the various versions of the construction signs at WDW. This one, in particular was located on the same walk as this other longer Walt quote where the Skyway construction is going on outside of Hollywood Studios. Here are a few others .
