Secrets of FL DVC kiosk: Hidden Mickey, Hidden History, DCL

I've previously given a tour of the Fantasyland DVC kiosk in WDW Clicks #5, but I like to include photos-in-HTML sometimes as well. Accordingly, here are the secrets/tributes from this new location:

The location looks well-blended from a distance, but pay close attention to the weathervane up top.

It's a giant squid, and it's here to honor 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the submarine ride which used to occupy this space in Fantasyland.

The sign for the new location looks nicely stylized, but it's also a three-dimensional Hidden Mickey.

The mural on the back wall is nicely detailed, and it includes drawings of the Magic, Wonder, Fantasy, and Dream - the Disney Cruise Line (DCL) ships - but here drawn as sailing ships.

Kevin Yee is the author of numerous independent Disney books, including the popular Walt Disney World Earbook series and Walt Disney World Hidden History.
