SOMETHING OF INTEREST…TO US, AT LEAST Part 1

SUNDAY MEMORIES

Judy Wills

Two things first of all:

1)        Fred and I really enjoy Disney – all things Disney.

2)        We like to notice little “touches” of things while at Disney.

Okay, that’s out of the way.  Now…on January 25, 2017, I wrote a blog titled “Tied in Knots” and the entire blog was written because I had seen the little boats at Disney Springs tie up to the cleat at the dock.  I still get a chuckle over that every time we are at Disney Springs and ride the boat from one dock (West Side/Marketplace/The Landing) to another.  (Just for your information, Downtown Disney is now known as Disney Springs.  I don’t know why they changed the name – perhaps “Disney Springs” rolls off the tongue easier than “Downtown Disney” does.  Whatever…) 

We were walking around Disney Springs recently and it occurred to me that lot of the door “handles” on the newer stores there have interesting and unique handles.  Now, we had noticed these before, but it didn’t occur to us until just that moment that my readers might also enjoy seeing those door handles.  And yes, one set of those door handles are cleats!  And just for information purposes, most of the stores I have photographed for this posting, are NOT Disney – they are just on Disney property.  Some of the names are quite recognizable, but others are not – at least not to either Fred or me.

Therefore, we’ve taken pictures of the ones that interest us the most, and present them to you now. These are some of the little “touches” at Disney that we enjoy.  We hope you do, as well.

The Disney Springs logo is interesting:

Ron Jon Surf Shop is self-explanatory, I think:

The Art of Shaving is a unique store dealing with everything “shaving.”

We were amused to see the door handles are “barber poles”, as well as the barber pole off to the side – even if it is not red/white/and blue.

Tommy Bahama is fairly well known.  All types of clothing.

                        The door handle is quite unique.

Sephora is a cosmetic store – and a large one.

The door handles make an “S”

Melissa is an unknown brand name to us, but love the “M” of the door handles.  But both doors must be closed to see the rounded “M”

Alex and Ani is an unknown store to us.

But the door handles are unique.

Most people are familiar with Kate Spade, for one reason or another…

While the door handles aren’t unique, the “spade” is everywhere!

One of our favorite store “handles” is for the Johnston & Murphy men’s shoes store:

If ice cream – and chocolate – is your thing…here is a store for you!

Love the door handles!

And then there’s the Disney Ticket Center…

With rather unique door handles…pure Disney!

Much more to share – so until next time…..

    I had not noticed those on other visits to Disney Springs, until I started finding things to photograph. Those really caught my eye! Cute!

    My favorite knobs are the spoons. Shocking? Haha. I am going to pay closer attention next time I visit the park.
