A Crate Idea

Near Min and Bill's Dockside Diner at Disney/MGM Studios, there is a pile of crates. As in Disney's way to leave no area un-themed, these crates have been painted with fictional addresses for movie characters.

This one references Citizen Kane (which just recently maintained its #1 position on the AFI's Top 100 Films List) and cleverly includes a destination to the Rosebud Sled Company.

Another crate is dedicated to that staple of the holiday season, It's a Wonderful Life, with a Ship To address for George Bailey himself.

And the third crate is heading to Scarlett O'Hara's plantation in Gone With the Wind. Another dress, I suppose?

And while I normally do not like to reference details that have been lost over time, I just had to include a couple of photos of another crate that has unfortunately disappeared in the last few months. It includes a reference to a fantastic Mel Brooks movie, and my all-time favorite Broadway show, The Producers. Hopefully it will make a reappearance soon.

Another great research job.

My next question is, "How close do you actually live to WDW?"

Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one that gets odd looks when photographing names on random boxes throughout the parks. :)

It's all about the details... Thanks again for another wonderful post. Hope it helps people stop and take a moment to notice details like these!

And yeah.. how close DO you live to WDW?? LOL

Thank you very much for your kind words! I'm so glad you have enjoyed the details as much as I've enjoyed walking around and finding them!

As for how close I live to WDW - about 5 minutes from property line. And it also helps that I'm there around 5 days a week helping to make the magic. :-)

5 minutes (insert jealousy smilie here) LOL

AND 5 days a week? OK, I need to move. Now.

If you're ever interested in meeting up next time I'm down, shoot me an email and let me know! I think it would be fun to pick out some of these details together!

Keep up the great work!

So much for the MGM crate post I was going to do . . . lol.

Seriously--great stuff. Have you caught the Swiss Family Robinson crates over on the Jungle Cruise dock?

Jessica said...

Sorry Jeff! Please go ahead with your post - I know you could do a much more thorough job than me!

I have seen the crates over by Jungle Cruise, but unfortunately have not gotten a chance yet to thoroughly photograph the area. Perhaps I'll need to take a trip to Adventureland soon!
