Tiggerific Tuesday: Liberty Square

Tiggerific+Tuesday+Trivia Tiggerific Tuesday #DisneyTrivia: Walt Disney World Railroad

Do you know why there is a brown ribbon of pavement running through Liberty Square?  It goes back to the late 1700s (the time in which Liberty Square is set), and at that time it was common practice for people to empty their chamber pots out of the windows and into the street.  When it rained, it created an open sewer in the middle of the streets.  Definitely gross, but you've gotta love the authenticity!

As always, a big thanks goes out to Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Heidi from Heidi's Head, +Magical Mouse Schoolhouse+Heidi's Head+My Dreams of Disney, and +Disney Babies Blog for hosting today!

    1. I know! When I found out that the Liberty Tree's bathrooms are geographically located in Fantasyland, I was super-impressed!
