Tiki Room - Under New Management (Magic Kingdom)




Who dares defame the Tiki Gods? Uh-Oa, the Tiki Goddess of disaster, has a few choice words for the infamous Iago in the Enchanted Tiki Room - Under New Management at the Magic Kingdom. Iago was talking badly about the Tiki gods ("Tiki-tacky, Polynesian, pinapple-picking, wood for brains morons") and Uh-Oa pretty much wrecks Iago's day. I really love both versions of the Tiki Room, but for different reasons (nostalgia in DL, novelty in MK).

Germany (Epcot)




This super talented artist is demonstrating her ostrich egg painting in the Germany section of Epcot. These eggs, handpainted, feature the most minute details and are simply stunning to see. This artist graciously let me take her photo with one of the eggs.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
I have been receiving an inordinate amount of 'spam' responses to my posts in recent days and I would just like to make a clarification:

If you 'spam post' to my blog, I will delete the post as soon as I find it.

Also, I have turned on the Word Verification feature. I am sorry for the minor inconvenience but it was necessary to avoid such tripe.

Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (Magic Kingdom)




Beware! Beware!
The Heffalumps and Woozles are the nemesis of Winnie the Pooh. They are weird, and always try to steal his honey. Personally, I think they're pretty cool.

Dumbo (Magic Kingdom)




Dumbo the Flying Elephant is a classic hub-and-spoke ride that rotates around a center axis in Fantasyland. Although this one has been there since day one, I have never been on it.

The Living Seas (Epcot)




The Living Seas at Epcot takes you on a trip underwater via the 'hydrolators'. Here you are in one of the largest aquariums on the planet, complete with sub-attractions such as Turtle Talk with Crush. In this photo, one of the divers in the tank is blowing oxygen-rings from his scuba tank.

Pirates of the Caribbean (Magic Kingdom)




The townspeople are locked in the cell while the the town burns down. Out of view for this shot a band of drunken pirates loot the city and fire their pistols. A timeless Disney classic, even if the Disneyland version is a bit better in my opinion.

Epcot Monorail




The Epcot monorail, seen with Test Track in the background. The monorails are designed primarily for transportation to and from the Magic Kingdom, MK-area resorts, and Epcot. Unlike Disneyland, the monorails are not classified as attractions themselves, however it is fun to ride on the monorails to kill time, even if all you are doing is making a complete loop. TRIVIA: There are twelve different monorails at the WDW resort, each with a different color stripe.

Canada (Epcot)




This super-wide view of the Canada pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase depicts all of the beauty of the area. Canada, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful pavilions in Epcot. Seen here are the gardens, the Hotel du Canada, and the mountainous waterfall. Canada hosts a 360 degree film called Oh Canada which is filled with very vivid imagery and natural beauty.

The Great Movie Ride (Studios)




"Here's looking at you, kid."
This audio-animatronic Bogey recites his famous lines to a tearful Ingrid Bergman time and time again in the Great Movie Ride, another AA show that takes you through many of the most famous movie scenes in history. Starting with Footlight Parade and ending with the Wizard of Oz, this ride is my favorite in the entire Disney MGM Studios.

The American Adventure (Epcot)




The American Adventure at Epcot is an audio-animatronic salute to American history that must be seen to be believed. This 30 minute show is 'hosted' by Ben Franklin and Mark Twain and covers American history via audio animatronic sets from the Revolution to WWII. The sets raise and lower to go on and off stage. It is a must see whenever I go to Epcot.

Spaceship Earth (Epcot)




As the sun starts to go down, things begin to look a little different. Case in point is Spaceship Earth, which appears white from a distance, a little gray from up close and this pinkish color due to the late afternoon sky. You also gain an amazing sense of scale as the palm trees are about 80 feet tall.
