Happy New Year everyone! While planning this first
Fun Find Friday of the new year I realized that there is no better
way to start the year than with a little bit of pixie dust, which
naturally means we are traveling over to "the wildest ride in the
I know what you are thinking: "But Brent, you said
we are having pixie dust which typically means Tinker Bell, but at
the same time you are talking about Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
What gives?" Well, I began to look back at the roots of how we got
to this site (with the book focusing on the animated film references
found throughout the entire Walt Disney World Resort) and realized
that every now and then we should take a look at one of these
character references for you to enjoy.
So our first stop is over at Big Thunder Mountain
Railroad! Recently I was talking with a cast member about the
attraction and they pointed out a few different details about the
rockwork that I had heard of, but never actually seen. This
naturally sent me on a quest to discover the truth about their
words. The one that fascinated me the most was the "hidden Tinker
Bell" near the exit.
So where exactly can you find everyone's favorite
Pixie? Just head to the exit
(and near the handicap entrance)
that is closer to the entrance of the
attraction. While here take a look at the rock work that sits
between you and the attraction. Halfway down on the wall you can
find everyone's favorite fairy in plain sight!
So there you have it! A little pixie dust to start
off the year. We will be returning to Big Thunder in the future to
find other rock formation masterpieces, but until then you best be
holding onto your hats and glasses, cause this here's the wildest
blog on the internet!
