The Disney Parks Icons: The Story Behind Some of the Best-Known Disney "Wienies"
Every Disney Park has its iconic symbol. In most cases, this is something that you can see as soon as you enter the park. The idea was that this should be something that would draw guests further into the park -- towards the icon itself.
In Episode 41 of 1923 Main Street: The Disney Travel Podcast, we take a closer look at the Disney Parks icons at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. Interestingly, not all icons are created equal and some have very interesting pasts.
We cover it all in this fun-filled podcast episode where you'll gain a new perspective on some of the most famous Disney Parks landmarks.
