Walt Wednesdays: Buena Vista Street

There are many references to Walt Disney's past scattered around Disney California Adventure's Buena Vista Street. Even a prop candy machine is full of fun references.

In the picture below, we see various candies that are allegedly for sale. (It's a prop so there isn't any real candy in this machine.) 

The first candy box - "Dream Spirals" - most likely refers to Walt Disney's dreams coming true. The second box - "O-Zell Jelly Beans" refers to a business Walt Disney's father part-owned that made soft drinks. "Banana Bites", "Nemo's Frolicking Fish" and "Lil' Scrappy" feature characters that resemble characters from Walt Disney's early cartoons and the box with the skeleton on it is a reference to the first Silly Symphony- Skeleton Dance.
