When Walt Disney and his Imagineers (or WDI or WED) were creating Disneyland, they all left their own imprints. Many of them left their names, initials, birthdays, etc... in the park, while others were honored in another way that most people walking down Main Street, U.S.A. won't notice their first... dozen trips to any Disney Park. With an 18 month old, I have yet to take pictures of every window, but I've found a few in particular that I liked (or wanted to research the references), so today, I'll share just a few with you!
Starting from the Main Street Train Station:
Walt Disney World
Keeping Dreams on Track
Walter E. Disney
Another one for Walt that I noticed for the first time on our most recent trip -
Overlooking the Castle and the Hub (above the Plaza restaurant, I think):
Walter E. Disney
Graduate School of Design & Master Planning
Headmaster - Richard Irvine
Dean of Design - John Hench
These men were all planners in different sort - several of them (linked) were Disney legends. Oddly, I've found several sites that label the instructor "Edward Brummitt," but my 20/15 vision most definitely reads Howard Brummitt, so I'm not sure why everyone says Edward!
Walking down *actually - we were riding on the horse drawn carriage* Main Street, U.S.A.
Buena Vista Magic Lanterns Slides
Treat Your Friends To Our Special Tricks
This window honors the special effects group for WDI - Yale Gracy is also honored as "Master Gracey" with a tombstone at the Haunted Mansion as well as many other of the men in these windows!
Hope that's enough to spark your interest! I'll add more over the next several weeks!
