Fun Find Friday
July 5, 2013
Location: The American Adventure, Epcot
With yesterday being the Fourth of July it would
only make sense that for today's Fun Find we would make a trip over
to the American Adventure Pavilion.
While at the pavilion you are treated to one of the
greatest Audio-Animatronics shows that Disney has to offer at any of
its theme parks around the world. However, today we're going to be
taking a look at the statues which stand on both sides of the
Liberty Theater. While a lot of the faces and people here may look
familiar (for instance Charles Lindbergh) one of the statues that
you may have never seen before has a very interesting story behind
Blaine Gibson, the man who is known for carving
several statues found throughout Walt Disney World including the
famous Partners statue and most of the presidents in the Hall of
Presidents, also helped carve these statues. If you take a look at
the Self-Reliance statue, you will notice that the statue is a
farmer. Blaine, wanting to pay tribute to his father who was a
farmer, created this statue in his father's likeness.
So next time you're at the American Adventure
Pavillion make sure you take a look at these intricately designed
statues. You never know what kind of story they are sharing.
