If there’s one thing you can say about Disney parks, it’s their attention to detail. At the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World (WDW) you can see claw marks on the floor of Country Bear Jamboree, Mickey Mouse heads on the manhole covers, hoof prints of the ghostly horses pulling the hearse at the Haunted Mansion, and so many other things.
I think my favorites are the examples of attention to detail that most people wouldn’t even know about or notice, but they’re there anyway. In Liberty Square alone, there are two lit lanterns in a window of the Hall of Presidents (to represent Paul Revere’s “one if by land, two if by sea). There are 13 lanterns hanging from the Liberty Tree to represent the original 13 colonies. And if you listen to the background music in Liberty Square, it’s played with period instruments so it can be historically accurate. Historical accuracy is also represented in the raised sidewalks of Liberty Square.
There’s one other piece of attention of detail in Liberty Square that a lot of people miss AND don’t know about. To be frank, it’s a crappy nod to history…
And there ya go!
