It's all in the Details: Fantasyland Construction Artwork

While in WDW in August I had a couple of minutes to walk around and take pictures while the kids went on Goofy's Barnstormer.  I cannot fit in that roller coaster so I just skip it now.  I was walking around and noticed the walls that they had setup to hide the construction of New Fantasyland.   I love the detail that the Imagineer's put into even construction walls. 

All of the art work is great and reminds me of the Shorts with Goofy from the late 40's and 50's.  If you noticed the slide with Goofy riding the Rocket?  This is why I really do appreciate the imagineers.  There is so many levels of detail.   I always am taking pictures and finding things that I did not see while at the parks once I get home.  On the rocket is the name Dolores.  I thought there might be something there and did a quick search and guess what?  Dolores is a character in a couple of the Goofy shorts.  Dolores the Elephant was first seen in 1945 in the short Tiger TroubleShe makes another appearance in The Big Wash in 1948.  In the Big Wash, look for Dolores' water bowl for her  name.

So keep your eyes open for the details.  You never know what they'll lead you too.
