    Did you know this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday #DisneyTrivia about Epcot’s American Adventure Pavilion?

    Four different shades of WHITE are used for the trim on Epcot’s American Adventure Pavilion. It’s so patriotic, it’s Red, White, White, White, White & Blue! Designers had to take into account several factors such as the reflectivity of white paint, the blueness of the Florida sky, and the contrast of surrounding hues and values.

      WOW I didn’t know that!! Who could imagine needing that many shades of white for one building? Cool!

      • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        I know, right? Those Imagineers don’t miss a single detail, do they?

    • lori ketcherside

      The details that we never even think of worrying about…my goodness! Well however many shades it is beautiful.

      • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        No kidding! It sure is beautiful!

    • Heidi Strawser

      OK – what a COOL trivia fact! I love the American Adventure Pavilion – maybe because it reminds me of Philadelphia (pretty sure when THOSE particular buildings were built, though, they didn’t take any of those factors into account!) LOL

      • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Oh, yeah, I bet it does resemble your neck of the woods! Yeah, I doubt they used multiple shades of white…unless they ran out mid-job ;)

      All those little details are what makes Disney stand apart from everyone else. Thanks Jodi!

      • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        That’s so true! I’ve never read of other theme parks paying such close attention to small details.

    • Sean @DisneyDayByDay

      Wow – how amazing, who would think that you would have to take all of that into account to make it look amazing all day and night long.

      • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Incredible, isn’t it? So thorough!

    • Pixie Dust Savings

      I have never noticed that. I will have to try to see if I can pick out the four different whites while I am there next.

      • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        I know, right? I bet it’s so subtle you won’t notice.

    • Beth D.

      Disney’s attention to detail is just amazing!

      • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Isn’t it, though? That’s something I never would have even wondered about, even if they’d have used just one tint. Amazing!

      Very interesting – I had no idea! Hadn’t heard that trivia yet! Thanks for sharing!
