    Question regarding Marilyn Monroe and WDW.

    Where in Disney World might I find a reference to or picture of Marilyn. I'm a big fan and was just trying to find all the places in the parks or resorts or Downtown Disney that she is in. This is what I have so far...:

    1.) The American Adventure (movie segment)
    2.) The Great Movie Ride (movie segment, though I wish they had made an animatronic one of her with her skirt billowing up )
    3.) The AFI shop in MGM and sometimes the AFI display area
    4.) Planet Hollywood and Starabillias
    5.) Sid's antiques and collectibles store in MGM

    Am I missing any that anybody else might be able to come up with?

    I'm making a complete guess, but I'm almost positive they would have something at the Pop Century resort for her. They have a lot of pictures behind the main desk in the lobby, as well as tons of memorabilia out in the lobby as well. Try checking there sometime and let us know if you find any others.

    It sounds like you've already checked most of the places that I can think of to check. My recommendation would be to call the World of Disney Information at 407-363-6200 for your request. They have access to the inventory lists for all of the shops within Disney World (not Disneyland), so if it exists they should be able to locate it for you. Hope this helps!

    You can also find a reference to her at Innoventions.

    The east side at the Disney Internet Zone, the TOYS computers. One of the questions in the hangman game is about her.

    Yoda, there's Reel Finds, a shop on Pleasure Island that specializes in movie memorabilia. I know they have Marilyn Monroe merchandise there.

    Welcome to the board! As to your question, since she died in 1962 most of connection to WDW would be in nostalgia, etc. I don't think her pic would be at the All-Star Movies resort, but it could be. I think you have a pretty comprehensive list, but on our next visit in November I will make it a point to look for her image.

    Thank you all so far for your input.....understandably Marilyn ends up in lots of stores as merchandise, I was more looking for more permanent references, but I enjoy finding out all the places she is in, and thanks again for everyone's replies and if anyone can come up with more references feel free. Surprisingly I stayed at the Pop Century Resort and I looked in all the little showcases representing each century and Marilyn wasn't in any of them including the fifties, but I guess I can understand her being overlooked. That and being a *** symbol might make her a little to mature for a family theme park to be commanly represented. I'm a big fan of hers and all that, I even have her autograph, and just was curious where in Disney she pops up. Thanks for the replies though
