As you know, this series asks you (if you dare!) to get inside my Disney-obsessed mind and figure out what Disney reference I am thinking of when I go about my everyday life here in suburban New Jersey.

Last week’s image was of a tile mural in the fireplace of my local library, and while many tried, nobody could read my mind.  I was, in fact, thinking of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort, Old Key West.  The image in the mural reminds me of the canal behind buildings 45 and 46, where you can watch the ferry headed back and forth from Downtown Disney.  The tall grasses and the white terns are classic examples of the sights I have grown to expect when sitting on my balcony in the late afternoon, listening to the boats motor by.  The first 2 pictures below were taken behind Old Key West buildings 45 and 46, while the third picture is of the library fireplace. Do you see the similarities?

Many of you commented that this reminded you of the opening scenes of the Lion King, and I am shocked I never thought of that before—but you can bet I will from now on!

This week’s inspiration comes once again from my local library (where I clearly spend a lot of time daydreaming about Disney.)  The picture is of a wall in the children’s section, and each of the words says “read” in a different language.

There could be several Disney-related things that could have popped into my mind, but I will award randomly a mystery ticket each week to someone who correctly guesses what was the first Disney reference that popped into my mind when I saw the image. 

In the comments, please share what you think I was thinking,… and share what Disney reference pops into your mind when you see it!
