Hello Cast Members! I have a question.
When I was at Disney World about a year or so ago, I took this picture in Maurice’s cottage next to Belle’s height chart.
As you can see, it measured Belle’s height until she was 18 years old.
But then I recently returned to Disney and took this picture of my little sister at the same spot:
This chart is written with different handwriting and only goes up to age 14. I was wondering if you could explain the reasoning behind the update to the chart, and why it only goes to 14 years instead of 18. I understand maybe it needed a new coat of paint. But I don’t get why the age change would be needed. I’d love to hear anything you’re able to let me know about this change.
I SWEAR I used to know the answer to this when I was more involved with New Fantasyland and imagineering and opening team stuff, but I can’t for the life of me remember! I think it was just that the paint was rubbing off from so many people posing with it, and they repainted it without much thought (see how the letters are totally different too). It may also have been that they didn’t want to give Belle a definitive age, but I could have also just totally made that up. OR it could be that Belle’s mom was the one who used to do it and she died when Belle was 14?? That sounds familiar. I swear I used to have an answer for this……… (I don’t know all that much stuff about Belle because I was opening team for Mermaid, but I can tell you all sorts of secrets and fun facts and hidden things about THAT attraction.)
