Wordless Wednesday: Steamboat Willie

Steamboat Willie in Fantasmic!

Steamboat Willie is one of my favorite Disney W’s. At the end of Fantasmic!, this steamboat travels across the water as many of your favorite Disney characters wave to the park guests. I always love looking for my favorite characters as the boat passes by. Characters aboard the boat often include Mickey, Snow White, the seven dwarfs, Ariel, Lilo & Stitch (my personal favorite), and many more.

Which character aboard Steamboat Willie is your favorite?

Thanks to Deb at Focused On The Magic for hosting the Wordless Wednesday blog hop! Hop on over to her site to check out some other great Disney photos!

    Fun idea for the letter W! My favorite is Ariel 🙂

    • She’s one of my favorites to see on Steamboat Willie too!

  • My favorite part of Fantasmic! I’m going to have to go with Mary Poppins and Bert.

    • Ok, I must have been too busy looking at Stitch because I did not remember they were on it. I’ll have to look for them next time!

      • I think you can even see them in your picture. Top deck!

        • You sure can! Thanks for pointing them out! That’s so neat!

  • Great W and I would have to go with him as my favorite – Steamboat Willie!

  • Deb @ Focused on the Magic

    This is a great choice Letter “W”! I love Steamboat Willie!

    • Thanks! And thank you so much for hosting this fun blog hop each week!

  • I confess that I’ve never seen this. 🙁 It wasn’t part of the park in 1994 (my last trip with my parents) and my boys were too tired to stay up for it last spring. I will be sure to see it one day, though!!!

    • You need to see it! It is such a great show!

  • DisneyMomma

    I love seeing so many characters at one time! I love all of them, but I have to agree that Steamboat Willie is also probably my favorite. I love that he’s a black-and-white costume, true to his animated self.

    • Me too! I wish you could meet him in the parks! That would be cool!

      • DisneyMomma

        That would be really cool! They should bring him out for the anniversary of Steamboat Willie or something.

    Lovely photo Kimberly! I love Stitch too, he’s my absolute favourite!

    • Have you tried breakfast at ‘Ohana yet? I love having breakfast with Stitch there! We go almost every trip.

  • jjzmgailey

    I just love seeing the Seven Dwarfs all together up there!

    • Me too! They are all so cute!

  • TheAngelForever

    The ending of Fantasmic is beyond magical. So many favorites all together to say goodnight.

  • Great W! I love that part of Fantasmic. I cry each time I see it!!
