BACKSTORY (July 24, 1966 —Present): The Court of Angels is a little area towards the back of New Orleans Square. For those who stumble upon it, it is one of the most picturesque areas in the park. Typically you can see photos of guests posing on the winding staircase. At various times throughout the year, this quiet spot becomes active as a Character Meet & Great as well as a retail spot for seasonal merchandise. Note: photos of this area can also be seen on my Club 33 page, since as of 2014, the Court of Angels was closed off to all guests and became part of the Club.
Above right, you'll see a plaque in The Court of Angels that says: Musique Des Anges Music Lessons Vocal Instructions Mme. Sally McWhirter Instructor.
