I was just at Magic Kingdom yesterday, and the construction is going good! Its crazy though the castle looks very small but thats the concept disney is going for!
Walt and Mickey
Quote from Disney Historian Jim Korkis:
The Partners Statue first appeared at Disneyland. The final design (done by Blaine and John Hench) is to indicate Walt pointing down Main Street as if saying “Mickey, look at all the happy people coming to visit us today”. The Roy statue (not shown here) is based on a publicity photo from the opening of Magic Kingdom and is in the exact location where Roy gave the dedication speech. Retroactively, the company has suggested that Walt is now pointing down to Roy to “continue the final dream” of the Epcot concept beginning with the first step, the opening of the Magic Kingdom. That is why Roy is holding Minnie’s hand from underneath…he is supporting her hand just as he supported Walt.
