Location: Muppet Vision 3-D, Disney's Hollywood
This past Monday Disney lost one of its most beloved
Disney Legends, Annette Funicello. Annette was one of the original
stars of the Mickey Mouse Club, handpicked by Walt himself, who
would eventually go on to a successful singing and acting career.
From singing Tall Paul to starring in The Monkey's Uncle, Annette
had a truly memorable career with Disney.
To show their love for Annette, Imagineers added a
detail to the preshow area of Muppet Vision 3-D when the attraction
first opened. While we've gone into a lot of detail about this
amazingly detailed area, I think it'd only be appropriate to focus
on this object right here in Annette's memory:
Just after passing through the hallway and entering
the room, this net can be found almost immediately to your left. So
what is it exactly? Well, those orange and green cubes are blocks of
Jello. I know, pretty random, but this is the Muppets we are talking
about here. So what on earth does this mean? Well, since it is the
Muppets it's a clever play on words. This is indeed a net full of
Jello, a very close name to Annette Funicello!
