All over!

NERD ALERT! I'm warning you right off the bat, my inner nerd is coming out in today's post. I LOVE numbers (not the television show, but numbers as in: 1, 2, 3...)! So whenever I walk around the Disney parks and see a number it sticks with me for awhile. Not sure why exactly. While walking through the line of The Seas with Nemo and Friends I stopped and took a look at the following poster:

The first thing I noticed was the hilarious word play of "To Air is Human!" but then for some reason I noticed the street address for the Tanks A Lot Dive Shop: 1401 Coral Coast Hwy. About a week later I was about to ride Rock'n'Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith when I took a look to my right after exiting the preshow room to see the following:

It's hard to see in the picture, but to the left of the light is a street address for the G-Force Records delivery drop off area. What's the address? 1401 Flower St. I all of a sudden recalled the 1401 found in line for The Seas with Nemo and Friends and began to realize that there must be some connection between the two due to the fact that Disney always has a reason behind everything they do.

A few weeks later the new Star Tours opened and while riding the attraction I heard the flight number: 1401. Then while walking through the line I noticed the same number was painted on the side of our Starspeeder 1000:

So what does it all mean? Naturally, by the time I learned about our flight number I began to ask around and realized that not only does the number 1401 mean something, but the address 1401 Flower St. means something extremely important to Imagineers.

1401 Flower Street, Glendale, CA is actually the home to Walt Disney Imagineering! So as a nice little nod to their home, Imagineers have hidden this number throughout Walt Disney World! Where else can you find this number? I'm not sure yet, but trust me, I'm going to find out!
