It's time to finish up the remaining snapshots of Storybook Land! See part one HERE.
This first one is kind of a mystery to me… I would say that it looks like it is from Alice in Wonderland, but perhaps it is one of the Three Pigs' homes. I love the detail of the thatched roof, the half-timbered façade, and the little flagstone path.
At the base of Cinderella's Castle is the charming French village where Cinderella lived with her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Some of them are pretty fancy!
You pass Toad Hall twice on your journey around the canal.. in this case we look past it toward Casey Jr. and the little ticket booth for that attraction. Skyway bucket alert!
The Romans knew a little something about the advantages of the arch. Functional, strong, and good looking. While this structure looks like an ancient aqueduct, it is actually a bridge for Casey Jr.
Windmills are one of the coolest ideas ever thought up by folks in ye olden days. First of all, they look neat. And they can pump water or grind grain, with the wind doing most of the work. Isn't it amazing that we still use windmills today, only ours generate electricity! They are also extremely important in the trillion-dollar miniature golf industry.
And finally, just before we end our journey, we pass Geppetto's Village - possibly my favorite part of Storybook Land. I love the medieval-style architecture, and the snow-capped peaks. Plus, "Pinocchio" is my favorite Disney animated feature.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit to Storybook Land!
