Finding Snow White in Walt Disney World recap

There are lots of Snow White references throughout Walt Disney world.  There is one theme park, however, where I could not find one: Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Snow and the boys do not fit into the theme of this park at all and I am glad to see that they are not there.

There a few other Snow White references that I didn't get a chance to visit and photograph on this trip.  At the All Star Movies Resort there is a reference in one of the windows of the gift shop - Donald's Double Features - and a reference in the World Premiere Food Court.

Finding Snow White Pennies in Walt Disney World

On my recent trip to Walt Disney World I wanted to obtain the Snow White related smashed pennies.  This is no easy feat.  The pennies are spread throughout the entire resort - theme parks and hotels.  I used the smashed penny list from my planning binder to make sure I knew where to look.  Armed with my list, I made it to quite a few of the pennies this trip.
Dopey in Panchito's Gift Shop at Disney's Coronado Springs
Snow White in Sir Mickey's in Magic Kingdom
Dopey Quarter in the Emporium in the Magic Kingdom
Snow White quarter in the Contemporary Lobby
Sneezy in the Polynesian Lobby

Snow White in the Wilderness Lodge Lobby
Happy at Fort Wilderness - take the water taxi from Magic Kingdom and it is in front of the store right there when you get off
Doc inside the Land Pavilion in Epcot
Snow White in Oscar's Super Service in Disney's Hollywood Studios

There were a few I did not get to:
Port Orleans Riverside - Riverside Mills Food Court - the Prince and Sleepy
Port Orleans Riverside - Lobby - the Queen and Grumpy
Yacht and Beach Club - Arcade - Bashful

Finding Snow White in Downtown Disney, Walt Disney World

Downtown Disney is undergoing a lot of change right now, but there are a lot of Snow White references throughout the area.

First stop is Disney's Days of Christmas where you will find on the seventh day of Christmas (of course) the dwarfs!

 In Once Upon a Toy, you will find the Wishing Well on a monopoly board behind a cash wrap

 In the Market Place Co-Op, the Beautifully Disney logo featuring the queen and Snow White is on the wall
 If you go into Guest Realtions, Snow White is on the wall with other sample photos
 Next stop is the World of Disney:
Villains Room

Princess Room
Princess Room

Some of the windows outside feature dresses made out of dolls (no Snow White) but look closely at the frame - yup- the mirror
 Outside the Lego store are a few of my favorite Lego displays...ever!

 In D- Street you can find the magic mirror on a vinylmation cutout.
 Disney's Candy Cauldron is just awesome!
Even with the signage, there is still a line to buy apples...

Speaking of candy, a walk back to where we started will get you to Goofy's Candy Company where you can find the periodic table of elements - Disney Style!  This is one of my favorites!

Finding Snow White in Disney's Hollywood Studios

Last October I ventured out to Walt Disney World.  On my hunt for Snow White related items in the the theme parks I was surprised at how much I found at Disney's Hollywood Studios!  I think this was the park I took the most Snow White related photos in.

First stop: One Man's Dream:

See the tiny dwarfs?

The D23 "office" - lots of items in there.  Check out some close ups below:

 Moving along with our tour: the In Character Shop right next to The Voyage of the Little Mermaid:

 As you exit the animation building, there is a variety of artwork from Snow White included in the background displays:

 On the wall outside of the Animation Gallery
 Up next on our tour - Sweet Spells on Sunset Boulevard:


 The biggest surprise can be found int the Once Upon a Time shop.  Th exterior is modeled after the Carthay Circle theater (the theater Snow White premiered in).  The shop had Snow White references in the exterior windows.  In addition, at the top of every display case, hidden behind the merchandise and wood awnings, were Snow White Lobby cards, production sketches, and photographs:
