Snack Time at Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow.  Notice the crooked shutters!

After the 3pm parade, we are always ready for a snack!  And, for Caroline, that means a funnel cake!

As you enter Liberty Square, after crossing over the Liberty Square Bridge, there’s a building right in front of you, usually with just a few guests waiting in line.

It’s Sleepy Hollow.

You can get freshly-made funnel cakes, ice cream, waffle sandwiches, and other sweet treats.

Look closely at those shutters on the building!  The colonists hung their shutters with leather. Over time, the leather would become weathered and worn causing the shutters to hang crooked.

Disney Imagineers used metal designed to have the appearance of leather to hang the shutters. They also made sure the shutters were hung crooked in order to have a more authentic look.

The brown ‘open sewer’ trough running through Liberty Square, notice the red “earth” color of pavement.

Insider tip:  Since there were no indoor or public restrooms in colonial times, there are also no restrooms in Liberty Square.  (The restrooms in Columbia Harbour House are actually located in Fantasyland.)  Have you ever noticed that brown ribbon of pavement in Liberty Square?  There’s a reason for that!  In colonial times, there were no indoor restrooms so they just threw their sewage out of a second story window into the middle of the street.  The brown pavement represents a river of sewage created by this!  Eew!!

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
