We are back!  This blog celebrates those of us who are “Secret Imagineers”: people who look at attractions, show, and parades and imagine how WE would write, direct, and produce them in a way that celebrates the Disney spirit of storytelling!

This week, we are exercising our creative muscles with an image submitted a great friend of WDW Radio: Jamie Robbins-Longoria!  She sent in this picture, and we thought it would make a great subject for conversation.

And so, we ask you, our fellow Imagineers in training, to consider these questions.  Please post your answers in the comments below!

1. Where in Walt Disney World would YOU put this image?

2. Who are these women, and what story are they telling?

3. If these women were to run into Mickey Mouse, what would the conversation be about?

We look forward to hearing your thoughts!

    1) I would put this in the Morocco Pavilion in Epcot (probably in the Aladdin room in the marketplace). I really love that area of the WS, too.

    2) In that context, these women remind me of a Northern African/Western Asian version of the Princesses (say woman 2=Mulan, woman 4=Jasmine, etc.).

    3) If they ran into Mickey Mouse, they would ask him where to line up for the 3 o’clock parade.

    Jamie, this is a great photo (and please forgive me if it is really from India).

    Fran, I was having the same image of princesses! Only, I was putting them in AK, definitely part of a parade — maybe through one of the jungle trails. I was also thinking “Meg” from Hercules would be a good fit, although wht it made me think Greek, I have no idea!

    Love these fun questions! Keep ‘em coming!

    1.) These women would be found at the base of Mt. Everest in Animal Kingdom right before the queue line for the attraction.
    2.) These are women who have been preparing for years to the sacred journey to the peak of Mt. Everest that every young women from their village must take. These women have to make it to the top and back down, with out losing a member of the group, becoming seriously injured, or dropping the water that must be carried by at least one of that at every moment of their journey. If they fulfill all of these requirements they will officially be considered women.
    3.) If they met Mickey Mouse they would ask him at what age he completed his sacred journey.

    1) I would incorporate this into a Mulan meet-and-greet area in Epcot’s China pavilion – she doesn’t really have a convenient spot at the moment and I believe there needs to be one!

    2) These women are the other girls who are going to see the matchmaker during that segment in Mulan – incorporating this part of Mulan’s story into the parks!

    3) If they met Mickey…hmmm…I would have to say they would thank him for finding a place for them in World Showcase :)
