For a quieter moment at the Disneyland Resort, a canal boat ride through a tour of Disney’s miniature landscapes would be the ticket. Buildings, built on a consistent ratio to a real size, intrigue many tourists. Each one was lovingly made, with attention to detail and no skimping on materials. Landscapes and buildings range from some of the earliest disney movies – like Pinocchio – to ones made in the last ten years, such as Frozen.
- The Disneyland,Storybook Land Canal Boats have been a beloved feature of Disney’s Fantasyland since 1956.
- Storybook Land is built on a miniaturized scale, reflecting Walt Disney’s love and appreciation for miniatures.
- The scale is one inch per foot and dwelling doors are a mere six inches.
“The Three Little Pigs make an appearance, straight out of the 1933 cartoon. Fifer, Fiddler and Practical have built their homes here—one of straw, one of sticks, and one of bricks. If you look and listen closely, you can see each of their names inscribed on their mailboxes as the pigs sing “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.””
