Disneyland has so many fun things to discover all over the park and the resort. Today I would like to focus on the statues that are all over Disneyland of different Disney characters. It is fun to explore the park and find these gems along the way.
Discover Statues Around Disneyland
The “Partners” statue is in the center of the hub in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse are holding hands and looking down Main Street, USA. The flowers around this statue change according to the season or holiday. The poinsettias in November and December creates a nice photo spot. Springtime is a great time of year for this area as well. This is because the cherry blossom trees are in full bloom. It is beautiful when this happens!
Disney Character Statues
As you walk around the “Partners” statue around the hub, there are pedestals with various Disney character statues on them. There are eight of them. Minnie Mouse, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Pluto, Goofy, White Rabbit, Chip and Dale, and Donald Duck.
Aurora and Prince Phillip Statue (Sleeping Beauty)
Another statue in Disneyland is the one of Aurora and Prince Phillip from Disney’s 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty. As you walk over the drawbridge and go through the castle, take a left once you are on the backside of the castle. Here is where you will find this statue. Aurora and Prince Phillip are dancing. The statue also has the three fairies with them.
Sleeping Beauty’s Animal Friends
In addition to Aurora and Prince Phillip, there are statues of her forest friends. At the front part of the castle to the left and around the right side as you walk the paths you can find these animal friends. The owl, squirrel, and rabbit. Also, the castle makes a nice backdrop for these furry creatures.
Snow White’s Grotto
While you are walking along the path on the right side of the castle, you will come upon Snow White’s Grotto. This is a waterfall and pond area that has statues of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Every few minutes you can hear Snow White sing the Wishing song from the wishing well.
Did you know? Did you know that the statue of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs were a gift from someone from another country? This person made them for Walt Disney. However, the anonymous person made them all the same height by mistake. Therefore, to fix that, Walt Disney and the Imagineers set Snow White up at the top and positioned the Dwarfs lower to create the illusion that Snow White is taller. Just like she is in the movie.
Alice in Wonderland Statues
While you are exploring all around Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, check out the side of the castle by the Alice in Wonderland attraction. This is where you will find the White Rabbit (who’s late, for a very important date) and the Cheshire Cat (who is pointing out the way to go).
Statue Water Fountains
Finally, on Discovering Statues around Disneyland, we will end with a couple of fountains that are in Mickey’s Toontown. The first fountain is in front of Roger Rabbit’s Cartoon Spin. At the top of the fountain is a statue of Roger Rabbit. The second fountain is at the other end of Toontown in front of Mickey Mouse’s house. This fountain has a statue of Mickey Mouse at the top. These two fountains make a nice spot to sit for a bit and rest while listening to the water trickle down… But wait! Don’t fall asleep though! 😉
Of all the things that you can discover around the Disneyland Resort, the statues are one of my top things to look for. They are fun to find and to see all the detail that goes into these statues. Most of all, you can take some selfies with most of the statues or they make great props to pose with as well.
