Hidden Characters inside Clopin's Music Box at Fantasy Faire

Inside the new Fantasy Faire (formerly Carnation Plaza Gardens), there is Clopin's Music Box.  A very cute addition to the area where you can crank the wheel to play the music box.

Upon closer inspection, there are a lot of hidden characters inside!  I'm surprised by the amount of characters worked into the background.  Good work, Imagineers!

From left to right:
Tony from Lady and the Tramp
Snow White
Flyn Rider
Peter Pan
Beast (in his human state)
Also want to point out that there's a very modern man in the far left corner wearing glasses.  I'm wondering if he's a caricature of an Imagineer.  Has anyone heard of this?

Expanded view with Belle on the right next to Beast. It also looks like Tinker Bell next to Flyn, but I couldn't get her face to confirm.

From left to right:
Mr. Smee
Maurice (Belle's father)
Sneezy or Bashful
The Coachman from Pinocchio
Also, above Mr. Smee is another character, a white-haired older fellow with glasses.  He looks so familiar but I could not recognize which movie he is from.  Anyone recognize him?

And of course, there's Quasimoto, but he's not so hidden.

Do you see any other characters?

Favorite Architecture

Welcome to those of you joining me from Can Do It Mom AKA Mouse Fan Diane and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

May Topic: Describe your favorite architectural find at Disney

This is going to sound cliche, but my favorite piece of architecture at Disneyland is Sleeping Beauty Castle. It's not just because it's beautifully designed, but I love what it represents. Magic. Dreams. Imagination. One look at the castle and you're taken to a magical place right away. Your head gets full of memories from being a child, and all around happiness. I see Walt Disney when I see the castle. I imagine he's looking over the park and is happy that Disneyland is still here and because of its success, his dreams have expanded to Walt Disney World and other Disney parks around the world.

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney in Our Blood.

Here is the map of our Magical Blogorail should you happen to have to make a stop along the way and want to reboard:
