It is well worth your time to stop and look at window displays at Disneyland. I’ve probably mentioned that before. They stay the same for a while, but they are full of details and cuteness. On our last visit, I noticed this window display in Fantasyland. It is right by the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique*.I haven’t seen Cinderella in a while, but this display showing the little mice hard at work on Cinderella’s dress immediately brought to mind the tune of Cinderelly. Aren’t you glad I put that song in your head? Spools of thread and scissors are strewn across the display, and the edges of the pattern book are even nicely aged. Disney does it right

Origins of name: This bridge spanning Buena Vista Street is modeled after the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge, a concrete arch-bridge viaduct built in 1928 that carries cars over the Los Angeles River, connecting Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood to Glendale.
Fictional back story: On Buena Vista Street, at least one business advertises its proximity to the bridge. “We’re under the bridge,” says an ad for Big Top Toys. The store’s entrance is, in fact, directly under the bridge.
What it really does: Carries the Disneyland Monorail track

I live super close to the original bridge - just drove on it yesterday.  =) The Walt Disney Studios were located about one block from the beginning/top of the bridge from 1929 - 1939, on Hyperion Avenue. I’m sure this is why it’s replicated at Disneyland.

Shirley Temple Black at Disneyland enjoying the Dumbo ride with daughter Susan and son Charles in 1956. The next year she returned to christen the new Sleeping Beauty walk-through inside the Castle. Another fun fact, in 1937 Shirley presented Walt Disney with his special Academy Award for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was a standard-sized Oscar with seven little Oscars. You can find the post on this blog!
