    This week Walt Disney Imagineering have released some photos of the charming details that can be found on the exterior of Maurice’s Cottage in New Fantasyland.

    The home of Maurice, Belle’s father, has a tinkerer’s touch both inside and out. The roof sports mismatched chimneys and this creative weather vane.

    On the ground level, the house is highlighted with heart shutters and support beams line the house, which Imagineers intricately hand-carved and stained to look just like wood.

    A wishing well and wooden fence, which has been repaired by the handy Maurice using extra wood found around the house, outline the property.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
