Henry the Tree is no more.
For those of you who haven't heard the story, Henry was the tree next to the Photo Supply Co on Main Street in Disneyland.
I worked Guest Control for the parades and fireworks at Disneyland nearly every night from 2005 - 2007. Back in late 2005/early 2006 I kept getting placed by "the tree by Photo" every night for fireworks. After nearly a week of that, I decided to just name the tree cuz I was soooo bored. So I named him Henry... and it stuck.
It became a big deal pretty quickly. haha. It was rather amusing really. He now has a myspace, myspace group, a series of stories on a Disneyland Annual Passholder web site, and has had many pictures taken with Cast Members and guests alike! haha.
And just for the record, I didn't create his myspace or his myspace group, other people did. Thats why it is so amusing. All I did was name the tree, then it somehow took on a life of its own!
Anyway, Disney has just replaced all the trees on Main Street. So, no more Henry. How sad!
I'm sure he will be missed.
