After returning from a successful thesaurus networking trip (perhaps the first time such words were ever uttered), I'm still trying to catch up on, well, everything. The following photograph was taken Thursday morning in the Pinocchio parking lot. After parking in the structure (which I always do with much regret), I planned to walk to Downtown Disney. I snapped a couple photos of the Pinocchio lot from the structure itself, then one of the structure from the lot, and then this one of the parking marker.
At the time I marveled that these were now ten years old--and I remember parking in the lot when it was brand new. Just as I took this photo, however, a Security Cast Member in a patrol unit approached me (well, he stopped a ways away and shouted through a rolled-down window) and told me photography was not permitted there. Since that statement didn't make any sense, my first reaction was to question why that was. As I evaluated the possible responses, I thought "security" or "because I said so" would be what I'd get, so I complied and continued walking. I brought this up to appropriate people, who agreed there is no blanket prohibition of photography there. I wonder what secrets are hidden in this Pinocchio sign that are waiting to be discovered?
