Fun Find Friday
May 17, 2013
Location: Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom
This week we are celebrating all things Pap, our
Gamer Tuesday writer on the site. It just happens that two of Pap's
favorite things, Fantasyland and Sword in the Stone, mesh up
together to create one amazing Fun Find! I know what you're
thinking, "We already know about the sword in the stone in front of
the carousel!" True, but that isn't the only connection to the
classic 1963 film found throughout Fantasyland.
Back in January of 2012 test runs for the new
interactive game Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom debuted with
interactive portals found throughout the park. While some parts of
the park remained practically unchanged, other sections were
drastically changed and rethemed to allow these portals to blend in
with the rest of the area. Let's head over to Sir Mickey's to see
how one window has changed.
Previous to Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom moving
into the Magic Kingdom, the window in the back of Sir Mickey's
featured Minnie Mouse's lady in waiting, Daisy Duck preparing for
the day as seen below:
Unfortunately when Sorcerers came into the park,
Daisy had to go to make way for a Disney character that had up to
this point been forgotten by most: Archimedes, Merlin's loyal owl!
So next time while at Sir Mickey's, make sure you stop by this
window to take a look at Archimedes' bird house!
