The recent talk about a possible Walt animatronic got me thinking about where in WDW Walt can already be "seen", in various forms. In what locations can we catch a glimpse of an image of Walt or a quote by Walt? Here's the list I came up with. Can you add any more to it?
Partners statue - Walt holding Mickey's Hand
Window on Main St, USA, just above the ice cream parlor
Roy & MInnie's statue - the dedication plaque tells us that WDW is a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney
Caroussel of Progress - narrator talks about Walt and how this was his idea from start to finish
Disney Dreams Come True parade - a CM is playing Walt drawing Mickey Mouse while riding a bike
TTA - the Metro Retro historical society presents Walt's vision of the future community of tomorrow
American Adventure lobby - one of the quotes on the walls is by Walt
American Adventure film - Walt is seen briefly, possibly an episode of Disneyland
Honey I Shrunk the Audience - Walt is listed as a previous recipient of the Inventor of the Year award
Spaceship Earth - One of the three TVs the family is watching shows an episode of Disneyland with Tigers jumping on Walt's Desk
One Man's Dream (duh)
Stars & Motorcars Parade - the commentators mention him "With little more than $40 and a dream..."
