It seems like it's been a while since I've shared a nice photo of Fantasyland's Skull Rock. So let's look at one now! It looks as if the Chicken of the Sea mermaid is scratching his noggin with her scepter. They're friends! His fearsome appearance is softened somewhat by the tropical plants and bright flowers. It's such a shame that his beautiful feature had to go when Fantasyland was updated in 1983. It was a magical spot, and… no princesses!
Not that I necessarily have anything against princesses (within reason). Snow White's wishing well and grotto are still two favorite places for me… especially if you visit them at night when the crowds are (theoretically) low. Hopefully this area won't be sacrificed for some newer, flashier offering.
