Today's first photo shows the old "Court of Angels" in New Orleans Square. Like the Snow White Grotto, this was a place that one could go to find respite from the summer heat and jostling crowds. For most of its existence, the Court simply was; you didn't shop there, or dine there, or run up those steps to access an attraction. How many people never knew of its existence, or poked their heads in and walked away because there was "nothing to do"?
Walt Disney clearly saw value in a place that was quiet and lovely, waiting to be discovered by anyone who was might happen upon it. Today the area is accessible only to Club 33 members and their guests.
Meanwhile, over on Main Street, we get this nice portrait of one of the horses as it pulled a streetcar. Is this one of the Belgian Draft Horses? Whatever he is, he has cheered me right up! I wish I had an apple to share with him.
