For a short while (possibly only one season), the Disney folks placed plywood flats around the Plaza, allowing guests to create their own "Fun Photos", for their scrapbooks, or to send to their frozen relatives back east. Sometimes you just want to stick your head through a hole in a piece of plywood and have your picture taken. Is that so wrong?
This first example is the most spectacular version, in my opinion. You don't just pose with Captain Nemo, you actually get to be Captain Nemo! Did you know that Nemo was the son of an Indian Raja? He was a genius who harnessed a mysterious energy source to power his submarine, which enabled him to conquer the seas and seek vengeance on cruel Imperialists. Some fun!
This flat was placed next to the Red Wagon Inn, which looks like an ordinary tract house from this angle. There was another elaborate flat allowing kids to be Davy Crockett. I don't have a photo of that one, but Daveland has several.
If ol' Nemo was a bit too intense for your tastes, you could always pose with Donald Duck. Why, he'll even let you wear his hat! Mighty neighborly of you, Donald.
