Disney Pic of the Week: Goodbye to 2015

As the Norway pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase prepares for Frozen Ever After, we bid goodbye to the Maelstrom boat ride through Norway's lore, wildlife and off shore oil platforms. Before boarding the longboats, the queue was overlooked by...

Photographing the American Adventure in Epcot

Photographing the American Adventure audio-animatronics show in Epcot's World Showcase is just like photographing one with live performers. Disney lights their shows the same regardless of the kind of performers. Very moody with bright areas used to focus the...

Disney Pic of the Week: Tomorrowland

Predicting the future is tough enough but when attractions are built showing the near future, time tends to catch up and even pass those attractions. Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress premiered during the 1964 World Fair, traveled back to...

President Lincoln vs President Nixon

Hold your horses, this isn't a political battle. I'm just posting two photos from Hall of Presidents that were taken using the same low light from the same seat and tweaked completely differently in PhotoShop. Why? It's fun and...

Disney Pic of the Week: Hall of Presidents

The latest version of the Hall of Presidents located in Liberty Square is my favorite. The story and the fact every President on stage moves and acknowledges when they are introduced is very impressive to my tech and patriotic...

Disney Pic of the Week: Space Exploration

Walt Disney, as most Americans did back in the 1950's, had a fascination with space exploration. Disneyland, followed by Walt Disney World, had attractions which took guests to the Moon and later Mars. It was not until 2003 when...

Disney's California Adventure Animation Building

The Disney Animation Building in Disney's California Adventure is a must for the Disney fan. When I was there last fall, it was not a very busy place especially soon after park opening. I virtually had the place to...

Declaration of Independence in the American Adventure

Scott is off this week. Probably recovering from a good old American cookout in celebration of the 4th of July holiday in the United States of America. He wanted to share this scene from Epcot's American Adventure to remind...

Disney Pic of the Week: American Adventure

As an American, it is hard not to feel a huge sense of pride when visiting the American Adventure pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase. The Disney Imagineers did a monumental job in fitting together the history and elements of...

Little Blue Coupe

The Auto Biography of Susie the Little Blue Coupe in Mickey Mouse's Garage.Nikon D70/50mm, 1/60s, f/1.8, ISO 280, EV +0.3 I found this nod to Walt Disney's animated short Susie the Little Blue Coupe from 1952 in Mickey Mouse's...

Brother, can you spare a dime?

A scene from the American Adventure.Nikon D70/50mm, 1/50s, f/1.8, ISO 800, EV 0, 50mm Focal Length Photographing the American Adventure show is a challenge for me and my camera. On my last trip, I was able to sit close...

King of the Wild Frontier

I enjoyed a stop at the Trail's End restaurant in Fort Wilderness for a hearty all-you-can-eat buffet. Before I left, I explored Crockett's Tavern which is inside Trail's End and is a small bar where you can enjoy some...
