Walt Disney truly believed that details mattered. Minute details set Disney parks apart from any other theme parks in the world.
Chef Oscar Martinez, Disneyland's longest working cast member told me a story once about how as a young man working at Disneyland, he had been on his way to his station and Walt was out walking the park before opening. Well, Walt noticed something was not just right with the table umbrellas at the Carnation Plaza area and was not about to leave it as it was. Oscar said Walt rounded up several employees to promptly get it fixed before the guests arrived.

If you think about it, it really is the tiny little details that can often bring us the most delight. Have you taken any pictures of Disney Details? They are everywhere. It could be the decoration on a cupcake, a detail on a building, the ambiance of a streetmosphere character, background music, landscaping, lighting, or some sort of decoration or decorative element that shows great attention to detail.

For this challenge, scrap a page that focuses on a Disney Detail.

My sample isn't finished, but here is one I did that fits two of my challenges!

This layout focuses on the details in the weathervane at the Jolly Holiday Bakery.The weathervanes are wonderful details in themselves, but, in Mary's carpet bag, the imagineers put two pennies. One is a 1955 penny for the year the park opened and one is a 2012 penny for the year the bakery opened.

Great page for details, Jamie!

Here is my page. My favorite Hidden Mickey is the nutcracker in Carousel of Progress, but there is a Mickey plush and a mickey gift under the tree too.

Here is mine. :) 

Very cool details Jamie!  I like how you highlighted them!

So I didn't know they did a Christmas overlay on Carousel of Progress. That's cute!  I love that Hidden Mickey Nutcracker!

Wow Nancy! Those menehune are adorable! What a fun element to add to the landscaping. The little gilded bits are the perfect magical element for this page.   Joe Rodhe had a lot to do with those details at Aulani as he was raised in Hawaii and loves the Hawaiian culture.

Here is my Challenge page.

Great pages with a lot of magical details, both in the Parks and on the pages!

Here is my submission: http://disneyscrappers.ning.com/photo/challenge-3-nsd-2017-extra-sp...

This may be late - I was thinking I had until the end of May.  It's based on a sketch by Susan Stringfellow.


I'm late but here's my submission for this one!

Marvelous Merrick! I love watching them make those!
