    The little things...

    Just read this great story over at the Main Street Gazette:

    Main Street Gazette: Goofy water

    Have you noticed similar things? What are your favourite 'little things' in the parks that make them that bit more special?

    My absolute favorites are the fact windows on Main Street open and close (something I noticed while waiting for Spectro and Wishes), and that on the little center street we have, there are sound tracks for vocal lessons and piano lessons that periodically play near the coordinating window.

    Also, when I was at the MK last June, this was at rope drop:

    My favorite "little thing" is a wooden leg at in the lost and found "box" at the train station near splash. The name on the leg is Smith. From the laughing on the ceiling in Mary Poppins

    Re: The little things...

    There was a similar thread in the Disneyland forum.

    I'll take what I wrote there and modify it a little bit for WDW:

    Partners
    The Liberty Tree
    The fiber-optic effects in the ground in Future World
    The fountains at the Imagination Pavilion
    The Itsukushima arch in the water at the Japan pavilion
    The model of EPCOT on the PeopleMover
    The boardwalks in Frontierland
    The tiki totems in Adventureland
    The pavement in Adventureland with gems
    The penguin orchestra in Muppets
    The 4-seat bicycle things at Boardwalk
    The period music and the plantation homes at Riverside
    The river and geyser in Wilderness Lodge
    The portraits on the HM that change with lightning
    The animals carved into the Tree of Life
    The "Indian" paintings in the Tiger exhibit at the AK
    I love waterfalls, so just about anywhere with moving water
    The names on windows over Main Street

    I'll update if I think of some more
