Hidden Gems: Star Trader X-Wing
The giant X-Wing replica from Star Wars, which once hung high above the Starcade, has found a new home in Tomorrowland's Star Trader store. It's now much more clearly visible, and one with a sharp eye may notice the small messages printed along the body. It's written in Aurebesh, a written language from Star Wars. So what do they say?
The first line says "THE CHESHIRE CAT", the second line, "THE MAD HATTER". An obvious reference to Lewis Caroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and its 1951 Disney adaptation.
Another reference to classic Disney Characters.
These appear to be three names whose identities are unknown to me. I'm sure there are more messages hidden throughout the many Star Wars-themed attractions, so be sure to check them out and have an Aurebesh guide handy when visiting the Star Trader.
