Location: Echo Lake, Disney's Hollywood Studios
While the holiday season is coming to a close, today
we are going to take a look at a reference to a classic Christmas
film which amazingly enough isn't a Disney film! While at Echo Lake,
guests can find the following stack of crates near Min and Bill's
Dockside Diner (another non-Disney reference that we will get to at
some other time).
So what's up with the crates? Each of these crates
pay homage to a different classic film in cinema history, but today,
in honor of Christmas, we will look at the crate found closest to
The crate honors the 1946 classic, It's a
Wonderful Life. If you recall, the film revolves around George
Bailey (found on our ship to label). During the film George lives in
the town of Bedford Falls where he falls in love with a girl named
Mary who makes a wish that someday she would live in broken down
home at the edge of town. The address for that house? 320 Sycamore
of course! So how does our return address come into play?
While George just wants to get out of the crummy old
town, his good deeds keep him grounded while the rest of his friends
go off to live out their lives. His one friend in particular, Sam
Wainwright, does extremely well for himself by setting up a
successful business in New York City. The name of his business?
Wainwright Enterprises of course!
