Location: Liberty Square, Magic Kingdom
During the Halloween season the
Magic Kingdom gets fully decorated for the
seasonal celebration. While a lot of people
notice the various pumpkin designs throughout
the park, there are a few hidden gems just
waiting to be discovered. One of my favorites
can be found in the always well themed quick
service restaurant, Sleepy Hollow!
Sleepy Hollow is themed around the classic 1949
Disney film, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. More
specifically, around the Ichabod Crane section of the film where the
main character becomes the music teacher of the town of Sleepy
Hollow. During this portion of the film Ichabod and Brom Bones argue
over the loveliest lady in town, Katrina.
On Halloween, Brom Bones relays the story of the
Headless Horseman to Ichabod and other members of the party they are
attended, which eventually results in the disappearance of Ichabod
Crane from the town. So how does this tie with Sleepy Hollow at
If you head to the window near the seating area at
Sleepy Hollow and look in, you can find the actual guest list for
that party that night! Here you can see that in addition to Katrina,
Ichabod, and Brom Bones, Mr. and Mrs. Hans Van Ripper, Mr. and Mrs.
Doffue Maretling, and Mr. and Mrs. Brouwoe also attended the party
that fateful night.
But that's not all If you take a look at the bottom
of the list you can find a small locket. The pictures inside it
feature none other than Katrina and Ichabod Crane!
