    I thought it might be fun to share photos you have taken from the Real World (places in your town or from your travels) that remind you of the parks, resorts etc etc. Make sure to mention where the picture was taken and what it reminds you of (extra points for side by side comparisons).
    Can't wait to see all the images! :)

    I thought this would be a great example to start off the thread:

    Mansion in New Orleans Garden District (used as the School for Young Witches in American Horror Story Coven)
    Reminds me of Disneylands Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square

    This one may be a little obvious:

    Hotel del Coronado on Coronado Island California always remind me of the Grand Floridian Resort and vice versa!

    I love your idea. Unfortunately I don't have any photos to add. I'll enjoy your posts until I can come across something to take a picture of.

    Oh thank you! I know everyone's perception on what reminds them of things in the parks and resorts will differ but I just find it interesting and want to see whats in their backyard that brings them back and puts a smile on their face due to a great memory.
    Hopefully you will be sharing some pictures soon. Funny thing is I find myself paying a little more attention when I am out and about just in case I find a gem to share.

    Took a tour of a real coal mine. Reminded me of Big Thunder Mountain.

    Hello Claustrophobia! Great picture this totally reminds me of the part where the ride begins as the train heads up the hill.

    There's a stretch along the main drag of Manitou Springs (small "separate" town here in Colorado Springs) that reminds me so much of Frontierland so I know I will have to get a picture of it sometime or better yet get some pictures of downtown Fort Collins which was John Hench inspiration for a lot of whats seen in Frontierland and Main Street USA.

    This was taken in Tennessee. It reminds me of the sunset for the Lion King.

    This one may be a little obvious too:

    Pueblo Zoo (Colorado) sunken/wrecked Thatcher ship model makes me think of Pirates of the Caribbean

    Cathedral Rock in Sedona reminds me a little of Big Thunder Mountain
