Fun Find Friday


January 6, 2012

Welcome to 2012! With the new year upon us, there is a lot for Disney fans to look forward to: Carsland, 1 More Disney Day, the Disney Fantasy, and of course, the first phases of the Fantasyland Expansion being completed! Since Fantasyland is sure to bring us several new Fun Finds in the near future, I feel that the best way for us to start off the year is by taking a look at a Fun Find that's been around since the Magic Kingdom first opened in 1971.

If there is one thing Disney does right on a consistent basis, it's theming the lands, attractions, restaurants, etc. so well that guests always feel truly immersed in their surroundings. Fantasyland is a great example of this theming. The entire land is set in the castle courtyard (with the castle belonging to Cinderella) and you are in luck! The fair has come to town and set up several attractions for you and the other townsfolk to enjoy!

Next time you are walking around Fantasyland make sure you pay close attention to all of the attractions entrances that are directly behind the castle. Each entrance is set up as a tent that you must enter to see what type of entertainment lies within! This goes even a step further when you look above some of the buildings (Peter Pan's Flight and it's a small world are great examples) to see the castle walls in the distance keeping with the story that you are in the castle courtyard.

The people working at the fair,  however, seem to have run out of their own supplies while pitching the tent for it's a small world, which is where our Fun Find Friday takes place today (I know! This must be some sort of record for me to babble this long before actually getting to our Fun Find)!

While looking at the pillars holding up the exterior of the attraction are your typical pillars, there are a few near the exit (right next to Pinocchio Village Haus) that are different from the rest. Keeping in mind that we are in the middle ages, you will notice that the pillarss holding up this section of the tent aren't pillars at all, but are actually jousting poles that brave knights would use during the time period!
