Hi! First just wanted to say as a fellow Disney lover & trivia seeker, I love your blog! Second, I realized that there’s virtually nothing on here about Marc & Alice Davis. My close friend is dating their grandnephew & so I get to hear amazing facts all the time & have the opportunity to hang out with Alice when my friend is in town. One of my favorite stories about these two is that Pete Docter & his team spent time with Alice in her home to talk with her about her life with Marc & gain inspiration for Up. I’ve heard many people question the dedication to “the real life Carl & Ellie Fredricksens” at the end of the film, and just wanted to point out this is why Alice gets a special shoutout. Alice is a wonderful woman who will talk your ear off for hours about Disney, and I know she appreciates blogs like yours that keep the Disney magic alive :)
—- Wow, thank you so much talkingincursive. You are so lucky to be able to speak first hand to someone connected to so much of Disney’s history. That’s really amazing.
Believe me, I’ve noticed the lack of trivia on the animators, and have been meaning to do more, but you are the first person to actually request it, so thank you for that. I was actually planning on doing more after finding multiple facts on Marc Davis for 101 Dalmatians, and then I remembered your message.
So here we go. The rest of today and Wednesday are officially about the animators!
just a little something i noticed while going over peter pan screen-caps, there’s a scene in both peter pan and 101 dalmatians where you see the Big Ben and in both movies it’s from the same angle, you can see it here :)
— That’s so cool! Thanks for sharing that thedisneytruth.
This is actually something my little brother noticed on our most recent trip to Disney World. Those cool looking water bottles on the table in the Space Mountain exit queue actually do exist outside of Tomorrowland! Tony Stark actually has one in Iron Man 2. they’re called Kor One!
—That’s awesome! Thanks brazosypiernas. If you want to buy your own, check them out here. They come in multiple colors.
Engagement Ring at the Haunted Mansion
The stones have been changed outside the Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom - the “ring” is no longer there.
Compare the stones pictured above to now:
I took these pictures on November 30, 2012.
It’s a difference of 11 years, 2001 to 2012. From what I understand, this “ring” was removed during refurbishment at some point, but to keep with the story, an actual ring was planted somewhere in the ride exit area. I’ve never been able to find it, though!
— Thanks for the pictures racheldana. I actually found the ring on my last trip to WDW. It’s now in the entrance queue, but you can only see it if you pick the longer queue that wraps through the graveyard. Check out my blog post here for where to find it.
