Snapshot! - Goofy Gadgetry

The World of Disney at Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World has an amazing assortment of large scale and colorful character vignettes that are suspended above the store's vast selection of merchandise and souvenirs. Wacky gadgetry is the overriding theme and Goofy is featured in a sleigh design that could almost be described as "happy steampunk."

Great article once again, Jeff.

Are you going to do similar Snapshot entries for all of the other large scale character vignettes in "World of Disney", including the ones in the main lobby rooms?

These set pieces can be very difficult to photograph due to the lighting conditions. I was fortunate to be there at just the right time of day to get good shots of a few of them. I'll try to get them up in future Snapshot! posts.

I remember seeing things like that in late 20th century Disney Stores back when I was 4. At Stamford Town Center, it looked like the Fab Five were in a projection room in a movie theater, or something. Or shooting a movie. I can't quite remember. But those must have all been changed or removed after TCP bought the stores.
