The Partners bronze statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse is one of the most popular photo spots in the Magic Kingdom. I find it almost impossible to walk by day or night and not take a picture of it. It was expertly sculpted by Blaine Gibson who was also an animator on many classic Disney films. Next time you're in the Magic Kingdom stop and take a closer look at some of the details. That is after you've taken a few pics. Upon closer inspection of his tie clasp you'll notice the letters STR. The letters STR represent The Smoke Tree Ranch, a development in Palm Springs, California, where Walt Disney had a vacation home.
