Side Tracked: Cinderella's Wishing Well.

   As far as I know, Cinderella did not have a wishing well in the 1950 animated classic.  At least not to the same extent as Snow White did.  But who knows, the prince probably had one waiting for her at the castle, so we will assume that is the story.
   Regardless of any over sight we do have this wonderful wishing well in the Magic Kingdom.  Carved by Disney sculptor extraordinaire Blaine Gibson, the well sits quiet and alone in front and to the right of the castle.

   Besides the wonderful characters carved around the base of the well, the nook that it is situated in is perfect for people gazing.  Take a moment next time you are hustling between Dumbo and Space Mountain and admire this wonderful use of space.
   Grab a sweet treat (i suggest the cookie sundae from Storybook Treats) and enjoy the atmosphere for a few moments before rushing on.  You would be surprised at how many people don't even notice this terrific detail.
