Fun Find Friday

February 27, 2015

Location: Downtown Disney, Walt Disney World

One of the great things about Disney is the fact that the details are hidden everywhere including in plain sight as we will see in today's Fun Find Friday. Our journey today takes us to Goofy's Candy Company in the Marketplace at Downtown Disney. Once inside, take a look at the back wall of the candy making station to find the following image:

Disney Periodic table of elements

Here we can find the periodic table of elements. While most of us may remember the periodic tables starting with Hydrogen (H) as number 1 and making its way to 118, Ununoctium. While the actual periodic table of elements is broken up into various sections for metals and nonmetals, the periodic table found in Goofy's Candy Company breaks up the elements a little bit differently.

Starting on the left-hand side of the table, you can find the Core Disney elements. Here you can find the elements for Tb (Tinkonium), Pl (Plutonium), and other elements representing Donald, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Daisy.

In the middle of the table, you can find the Elements of Royal Degree. Here you can find various characters that have assisted or interacted with royalty throughout the years. For instance, Tr is Tritonium for Ariel's father King Triton, while Cr is Cri-keeium, representing the loyal cricket in the film Mulan. In addition, you can find elements for Flounder, Gaston, Cogsworth, Flora, Fauna, Merryweather, and even the Magic Mirror!

On the far right-hand side of the table, you can find the elements of evil which feature elements like Sc (Scaronium), Cr (Cruellonium), and even the often overlooked element R which represents Radcliffium an homage to the often overlooked Governor Radcliffe from the 1995 classic Pocahontas.

The final elements we will look at today can be found at the very bottom of the chart and are appropriately named The Seven Smallest Elements. These reference the seven dwarfs in the form of Sleepy (Sl), Happy (H), Grumpy (Gr), Doc (D), Bashful (Ba), Dopey (Do), and Sneezy (Sn).

While these are just a small sampling of the Disney Periodic Table of Elements, I strongly suggest taking a look at all the events on your next visit to the Marketplace. You'll be happy to see some of your favorite characters getting a nod in a very subtle way!
