Cinderella's Wishing Well is a little hidden detail in itself, set off the beaten path. It provides a quiet spot to escape from the craziness of a busy day at the Magic Kingdom and make a small wish. The Wishing Well is beautifully decorated from top to bottom, but it is the bottom that deserves the most attention.
The basin is surrounded by the bluebirds, carrying a ribbon that stretches around the entire circumference. The birds are sculpted in lively poses that are unique to each individual.
Around the base, we find Jaq, Gus, and the other mice trying their hardest to steal a strand of pearls from under Lucifer's watchful eye. It's a wonderful sculpture, that begs the viewer to walk all the way around to get the full story.
