In case you missed it.....

Drum & Fife Corp at EPCOT's American AdventureWell, the other day Disney Geek George used a picture from my recent trip to Walt Disney World for their Daily Figment 85.

The day after publishing the post, George contacted me and asked me if I saw the little bit of Disney Gold in the picture I loaned him. 

If you click on the picture to the left, it will take you to the source picture on my Flickr account.  Take a close look at the Bass Drum.

Do you see it?

No?

Maybe this will help:Bass Drum Close Up

 

 

 

 

 

Now that you know what you are looking for, you should be able to find it in this picture.  I knew about this one because my wife pointed it out and insisted I take this picture:

Snare Drum...Fife & Drum Corp (American Adventure)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now the big question that I have is, where did that logo come from?  I'm sure one of those Disney Scene Investigators Lou Mongello (Disney World Trivia and WDW Radio Podcast) or Jeff Pepper (2719 Hyperion and WDW Radio Podcast) will be able to provide some historical insight on that logo.

As Lou and Jeff always tell us, look up and look down and look around.  Something Grumptastic is always under your nose.  So don't forget to have a camera handy.

I know it looks like one of the original logos that they used for Walt Disney World back in the early 1970's...

What George said . . .

That particular icon predates even the opening of WDW--it showed up on pre-opening publicity and press materials and was typically found within the letter "D" of the original 70s era logo.

Thanks George and Jeff.

I find it interesting that they chose an icon that pre-dated the opening of WDW to put on those drums.

Or maybe I just get interesting in boring stuff...haha

And let me throw in the fact that I really dig that old logo.

Now stop staring at these photos so closely.. or you'll end up... like one of US (aaaaggh!!) ;)
