Cinderella's Crown

Before our trip to Disney last November, Trent & I both did a little "research." We had fun reading up on various little trivia facts about Walt Disney World. One interesting tidbit I came across was to visit Cinderella's water fountain in the Magic Kingdom; "kneel" before her; and look up to see a crown upon her head. Sounded simple enough. So we went, we looked and saw - nothing. At the time, it frustrated me a bit but as we went about our week I forgot all about it.

On Friday while reading 101 Things You Never Knew About Walt Disney World, I was reminded again of Cinderella and her crown. The author wrote that the image could only be viewed from the height of a child. Perhaps that is why I missed it? I continued reading the book and really didn't think much further on the subject.

Last night I was thumbing through our photos trying to decide which to scrap next. I paused to look at a photo I took of Cinderella's fountain at night. It's one of my favorite photos because of the colors & lighting. I've looked at it several times. Even scrapped it, but never noticed one little detail until last night - the crown. There it is clear as day. Cinderella's crown sits directly on her head. Neither Trent nor I made it out while standing directly in front it it. But yet I managed to capture it in a photo.

After this little discovery and the hidden Mickey in the photo on the Test Track layout, I'm starting to take a much closer look at all of our Disney photos to see what other magic we may have inadvertently captured.

  10. Sarah, I had to share your photo and post with my daughter. She thought that was pretty neat. The last couple of times we went to WDW, we were obsessed with Hidden Mickeys and other trivia. Thx for sharing that!

    Also, there is something for you this evening on my blog... :-)
