Did you know today’s Tiggerific Tuesday #DisneyTrivia about the Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse “Partners” statue?

“Partners,” the bronze sculpture depicting Walt Disney and his pal Mickey Mouse, was created by sculptor Blaine Gibson, using photographs for the Walt Disney reference, to commemorate the 65th birthday of Mickey Mouse in 1993. Identical sculptures were later installed at the Disney Studios in Burbank, California, and in other Disney Parks. (Disney Trivia from the Vault, by Dave Smith)

    Wow, my oldest Disney memories involve the partners statue already being in the parks. I had no idea it was such a recent addition.

      I just love that statue. It’s the perfect tribute.

    I love that statue! I didn’t realize it was added the year Ashley was born – too cool! We had our family picture (Brian, Ashley, and me) taken in front of it on her first trip to Walt Disney World in 1999. We then sent that picture to Vietnam as part of our adoption portfolio.

      Aw, how sweet! You obviously sent an accurate portrayal of your family, seeing that you’re still very Disney-fied! :) Btw, Richard & I were married that year – 1993 was a great year!

    Love the statue, such a great tribute. I always have to get my picture with Walt.

      I love it too! It’s a perfect way to have Walt’s presence in the Park.

  • Amy De Napoli

    That statue makes me all teary-eyed! I wish Walt could have seen his vision come to life.

    And like Heidi said, maybe we can stage a family photo there! :) Thanks Heidi!

      Oh, I know, me too! I’m sure he’d be pleased!

      I just love that statue!

    I know I am back at the best place in the world when I see the partners statue. It always makes my heart clinch.
