    Does anyone else say a "Thank you" to Walt at the Walt statue?

    Every single time I go, I make it a point to walk by the Partners Statue and say a quiet "Thank you" to Walt.

    Anyone else do that or am I insane?

    No. But I do carry on conversations with the little bird statues in the Grotto so figure that out.

    Re: Does anyone else say a "Thank you" to Walt at the Walt statue?

    no, not at the statue....

    but always when I pass the firehouse with Walts apartment and the light...

    I always stop (at least once each day I'm there) give a little wave and say "Thanks Walt"

    course we seem to be the only one's who do this, so I guess we're both nuts

    but that's OK, I like to remeber that without Walt's Dream, none of this would be there...


    so on that note

    "Thanks Walt"

    I didn't say anything to the statue, but when I was there in October, on my last day I strolled around the various lands at closing time and said "goodbye" to the park.

    My girlfriend just didn't understand.

    "Thanks Walt"
    I do both.
    I have a dream
    A song to sing
    To help me cope
    Trough everything

    If you see the wonder
    of a FairyTale
    You can take the future
    even if you fail...

    I believe in Angels
    Something good in everything I see
    I believe in Angels
    When I know the time is right for me...

    I'll cross the stream.... I have a dream

    I will usually make a point to give a short wave and say "howdy walt" as I pass by the statue the first time I'm in the park.


    He's never answered back though... although I thought I saw his hand move a couple times.

    Not yet..., but I did speak to the Mayor of Main Street today about the large 2x4 sitting on the bottom of the Dedication Plaque. It's part of the Candlelight production set-up. It looks awful and I felt I had to mention to a CM that might actually move the info UP and get it more appropriately positioned. Or at very least draped so as not to be visable.
