    Where's the fantasyland plaque?

    For all of the opening day lands, they have a dedication speech plaque...Main Street USA (Disneyland), Tomorrowland, and Frontierland.

    Where's the Fantasyland plaque located? I swear I have seen it before. Has it been removed?

    Is it in the castle courtyard by a sleeping beauty statue?

    Adventureland doesnt have one, either, and it was an opening day land. Also, I'm not sure if the Frontierland plaque features Walt Disney's opening day speech. I believe it is an award plaque or something from some organization honoring Walt Disney for honoring America's past via Frontierland.

    I think the only land that has the opnening day words for the land is Tomorrowland, and that plaque was added during the New Tomorrowland of 1998, right?

    ^^ Correct i believe.

    Why does tomorrowland and main street only have deciation plaques. I think the other lands should have it, Even the newly added lands if any immagineer or family of Walt resisted it.

    The Tomorrowland Plaque was at the entrance to Tomorrowland from 1967 to 1993 (I don't know about one in the earlier TL) The ones, according to Disney, for AL and Fantasyland were OKed by Walt but never instaled! I hope this helps!

    Adventureland plaque approved by Walt June 22, 1955, never installed.

    Tomorrowland plaque, OK'd by Walt June 24, 1955, stood at entrance to land for many years.

    Frontierland plaque, OK'd by Walt July 5, 1955, never installed.

    Fantasyland plaque, read aloud at DL opening, but never installed.

    Why didn't Walt demand it like everything else he wanted installed? Like real snow on the Matterhorn.
