    "JESUS!!! That's Cold!" -- Walt Disney's final words.

    "You hear people talk about, 'I don't think Walt would like this,' or 'I don't think Walt would like that.' You have no idea what Walt would want! No clue whatsoever! Because the people that worked with him day in and day out didn't know what Walt wanted. Walt didn't know what he wanted 'til he wanted it."
    -- Randy Thornton, Walt Disney Records

    Thanks...yep...that's it. Although that one looks like some sort of much later reproduction. The original art-quality litho was very large...and didn't have any of the text or logo printing on it. Editioned, titled, and signed in pencil by Charles.

    I don't like the lithograph. The statue is nicer IMO. The trompe l'oeil effect of Walt's little buddy is a funny thing that must naturally occur to the observant visitor with some regularity.

    It was Rededicated on the anniversary Walt's 100th Birthday
    December 5, 2001. It was a short ceremony, and they had
    Richard Sherman play one of Walt's favorite song's "Feed the Birds"
    right in front of the hub.

    Was lead to this thread from a new one from today. BUT am so surprised no one responded to the "Gift Giver Machine" answer to this post. Man were those the days or what!!!

    Interesting observations about the ivy on the castle. If I'm not mistaken, even some of the earliest concept drawings and models of the castle included the ivy. I hadn't noticed that it had been trimmed back so drastically.
