To all who come to this photo trivia game, Welcome! Along the way, the photos can make us relive memories and see details Walt's Imagineers put into everything we love in Walt Disney World!
Vera Williams, Jim Finley, and Cheri Palmisano, and to everyone who send me such wonderful messages, thank you!
Rob & April Vanderpool, I know you are enjoying Walt Disney World! And so is Maggie Klotz for the first time in over a decade! Enjoy the magic!
Jeremy Mccaffrey has the flu this week and couldn't play like he usually does. Get well soon, Jeremy!
My family is having a Disney trip free year too, Jason & Melinda Lenz. Sniffle!
Here was the challenge last week:
And here's the answer:

Let me quote from One Man's Dream:
"We know it was really all started by a man, a man with a dream, and a mouse."
The Partners Statue at the end of Main Street, in the center of the hub in front of Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom: it honors the man himself, the one who his brother called the World's Storyteller and how lucky we are to have him: Walter Elias Disney. And his buddy, his partner in magic, the one who Roy O. Disney said was the closest anyone could get to having Walt alive again, the friend Walt always called The Mouse, Oswald's little brother: Mickey Mouse.
I'm so glad so many of you agreed this was a good choice to close 2012 on a magical note.
I'm not going to even to clown around. Let's just enjoy it, the way the movie ends in One Man's Dream (I always choke up):
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
I hope your 2013 sees your dreams coming true, Players.
And Tami H. and John Bickers, you got it right. :)
