Fun Find Friday

May 3, 2013

Location: Frontierland, Magic Kingdom

For over three years I've spent countless hours dedicating my time to this website and my book. The basis of that research and work has revolved around a simple idea: where can you find Disney characters in Walt Disney World? Today, we are ignoring that and talking about where you can't find a character!

In 1963, Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room became the first attraction to feature audio-animatronics. The attraction was a huge hit and has become a Disney classic, but a mystery was born. While the carousel of "girls" comes down, Jose and the other hosts acknowledge most of them by name and then one of the birds offers the question, "I wonder what happened to Rosita?" Today we are going to get a little closer to finding out the answer to that question.

Recently, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad's queue went through a massive refurb which included several new interactive items. Shortly before merging with the Fastpass line, guests pass underneath several bird cages that come in many different shapes and sizes. While most aren't too detailed, one cage has an interesting detail that should be noted:

I wonder what happened to Rosita

As you can see, Rosita isn't here, but we at least know where she's been hiding at all these years. Sadly, the search for Rosita continues...
