More Mardi Gras World and Disney



Thanks to faithful Daveland reader Bryan, I realized that there is yet another statue at the Disneyland Resort whose origins are most likely Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World in New Orleans. Check out the statue I photographed there a few weeks ago and the one below from Downtown Disney:



Throughout the warehouse I noticed a number of other more obvious Disney characters.



Zooming in you can see the Three Caballeros (next to Salvador Dali, no less!):



Look closely at this random group of sculpts…



and you'll see Mowgli from "The Jungle Book," front and center:



The Rescuers, from the 1977 animated film:



This one I almost missed:



A painting of the Partners Statue:



Rock your world with a little more Mardi Gras Parade Float Madness at my main website.

Well that is extremely cool. That's not just a contractor partnership that provided a few pieces with Mardi Gras flavor, that's a direct nod to Disney in many ways. Love Mowgli and the Rescuers. So cool.
