It's been a while since I was around the kingdom early enough for this view! Had a great time at yoga in front of the castle yesterday!

Happy 23rd birthday to the partner statue!😍 It is my favourite thing in the whole entire world😊 The creator🖌, Blaine Gibson, says that Walt is admiring the park😌 and saying to Mickey🐭 ‘Look what we’ve accomplished together’,🙈 because he believes they truly were very much a team thought it all👨👦‘Look at all the happy people who have done to visit us today’✨ How many partners statues have you visited?🧐 I’ve visited 4/5😊
On this day, June 19, back in 1995, a bronze statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse, called the Partners Statue, was installed in the castle hub of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney Word. It is identical to the statue created by artist/sculptor Blaine Gibson first installed at Disneyland back in November 1993 to celebrate Mickey's birthday. ✨
"Walt had more confidence in us as artists than we had in ourselves. I’m a sculptor now, but I used to be an animator, and I loved it. I didn’t want to leave animation and go work in the theme parks. But Walt saw me as a sculptor and he sold me on it. He made me believe I could do it. He gave us the confidence to do things we never imagined were possible." - Disney Legend Blaine Gibson ✨ ✨
Bonus Fact: Today is also the day that DisneyQuest opened in the West End area of Downtown Disney, in 1998. 20 years later and there's nothing left of the five-story building. We don't fully agree with the NBA expereince replacement, but we won't miss this old place. ✨
I always love the beautiful colors around the partners statue! 🌺🌸🌼🌸🌺
in the books! After an exhausting weekend I'll admit it was hard to get up this morning. I need 10 sugar free Redbull's ASAP 😭
But we are only 123 days away from our next trip home! Which seems like a long time...until I realize how much I have to do between now and then! Hopefully it flies by! How much longer until your next trip? Let's countdown together 💜
This was my last view of the castle before I left Disneyland 😭🏰
Another pic of the Walt and Mickey Partners statue pop. I don’t have any more available to purchase but hopefully will soon.
