The Stories Behind the Disney Parks Icons at Walt Disney World

Whether you call them park icons or "wienies" (as Walt Disney called them), each Disney Park has a unique icon that has a very special purpose, beyond just being a great marketing symbol. Join us as we delve into the stories behind each park icon at Walt Disney World.

The Disney Parks Icons: The Story Behind Some of the Best-Known Disney "Wienies"

Every Disney Park has its iconic symbol. These are often the most well know images associated with the parks.

In most cases, the icon is something that you can see as soon as you enter the park. Walt Disney called these "wienies." Listen to the episode to hear the reason why. The idea was that the wienie or icon should be something that would draw guests further into the park -- towards the icon itself.

In Episode 41 of 1923 Main Street: The Disney Travel Podcast, we take a closer look at the Disney Parks icons at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. Interestingly, not all icons are created equal and some have very interesting pasts.

We cover it all in this fun-filled podcast episode where you'll gain a new perspective on some of the most famous Disney Parks landmarks.
