Disney Pic of the Week: Bus

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Disney buses are the most used mode of transportation at Walt Disney World. They meet us at the airport, transport us to all points within the resort and go out of their way to accommodate guests from newborns to the elderly. However, I must admit, the bus pictured below was a very special one for my wife and me as it took us from Disney's Wilderness Lodge to the Christening Cruise of the Disney Dream cruise ship back in January 2011.

Disney Pic of the Week: Wilderness Lodge Lobby

Deb's Digest Blog

One of my fondest memories of the Wilderness Lodge is from the late 1990s.

I went to sleep one night and the next morning woke up to the entire lodge being decorated for the holidays. Tears filled my eyes. It really was Disney Magic.

Disney Pic of the Week: Wilderness Lodge Lobby

Disney never plans anything without a backstory. Disney's Wilderness Lodge is full of stories about the American West. Each of the two large totem poles in the lobby tell a tale from Native American lore. The one pictured below is the Raven totem.

Deb will here tomorrow with her view of the Wilderness Lodge Resort lobby.

Tomorrow is the day America celebrates its birthday. It has been 239 years since July 4th, 1776.

One of the greatest foresight's America has had was to create its National Parks to preserve and protect unique natural places within the territories of the United States for the enjoyment of its peoples. Disney pays homage to those national parks and the great lodges found within their borders at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort.

Disney Pic of the Week: Wood

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

For the next four weeks, Deb and I will be doing some abstract subjects. I did not go photographing specifically for these subjects but found them in my archives when they were proposed. That is the lesson I taught about adding Captions and Metadata to your photo databases and libraries.

We start off with Wood. Not surprisingly there is a lot of wood to be found at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort at Walt Disney World. The entire lobby from the floor to the ceiling is made of wood (as much as our eyes can see anyway). Here are a couple of Big Horn Sheep located on one of the pillars of the lobby. You will find other wildlife wood carvings on the other pillars.

Tomorrow, Deb takes you back in time to the Vikings for her wooden post.
