Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia



Welcome back for more fantastic Disney Trivia!  Thanks again to Jodi from +Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Heidi from +Heidi's Head, and +Mike Ellis for co-hosting!

For quite some time, I've spent time revealing some of the hidden tributes that the Disney Imagineers leave for those who came before them - from the Windows of Main Street to the Tombstones at the Haunted Mansion.  These tributes are all over the place, if you simply stop to look!

I found a new one on our November trip - this time in the queue for The Jungle Cruise (technically it was the Jingle Cruise, but as the only difference was a santa hat and a few different jokes, I'll stick with the original title).

Chest High Rubber Over-Pants

Goff's Brand
1911 Main Street, Fort Collins, Colorado

Harper Goff, Legendary Disney Imagineer, was born in Fort Collins, Colorado in 1911.  He was a concept artist at Disneyland, starting back in 1951 and is credited for much of Main Street, U.S.A. and the Jungle book.

Harper Goff stayed on with Disney much beyond Disneyland - he is credited for designing much of the World Showcase, including the Japan, Italy, and UK pavilions!

Harper Goff also has his own window at Disneyland (probably at WDW - not sure if I have that one) and has been given some love with the updated Haunted Mansion, too!
