Peter Pan's Flight Weathervane

I hope I am assuming correctly that this is Captain Hook’s ship the Jolly Roger.  The weathervane is placed next to the crocodile atop Peter Pan’s Flight in Fantasyland.

Fantasyland Stroller Parking

This location was originally used as the Fantasyland Skyway station.  The attration opened with the park on October 1, 1971 and closed in November 1999.  Now the area has been reserved for strollers for the local attractions.  The clock atop the tower seems almost hidden, but a clock nonetheless.

Randy Pausch Quote

Randy Pausch (1960-2008) was an Imagineer with the Walt Disney Company and was a Professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.  Following his death, Walt Disney World erected this quote on the side of The Mad Tea Party.

It states “Be good at something, it makes you valuable… Have something you bring to the table, because that will make you more welcome.”
