Central Plaza of the Magic Kingdom, which leads to the other various lands. Here, the famous "Partners"
statue reaffirms that it really was all started by a Mouse (named Mickey). The
statue was designed by Disney Imagineer John Hench and sculpted by Imagineer
Blaine Gibson, who started his career as an animator at the Disney Studios, and
then moved on to become a sculptor for many of the audio animatronics figures
both at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
