    I didn't think he was pointing at anyone. It looks like his hand is in an 'Open Gesture / Welcome' position!!!!!!!!!

    I saw this topic recently on another forum.

    Read through all four pages to find the three "official" answers.... just ignore the arguments that are the norm over there.

    Partners Story....

    Feel free to discuss it further here.

    Enjoy!

    I always just assumed he was pointing to the future.....
    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    wow never thought of it that way
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    Wow!!!!!!!

    WOW! That was too much for me knowing that Walt knows that is the end of the road for him and tells that little one to take over , that is just way too much for me to handle, I need to go be with that statue in a moment of silence

    I lve it that was incredible. Thank you it's the best trivia of WDW yet!!!!

    I took the "Behind Our Steam" tour last Thursday (3/16/06) and the conductor claims that Walt is pointing at his favorite place in the park, which is the Train Station.

    Yes, the Roy/Minnie bench statue concept is not the original intent as that was added much later, even the concept for it came much after Partners.

    Anyways, his arm is off to the right a bit; I used to like to think he was walking the park with Mickey, pointing a Guest to the nearest restroom (just off to the right past Casey's Corner....)

    Very interesting(tho long) read. I think I like Sam I am's version the best.
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"
