Disney Pic of the Week: The Seas with Nemo and Friends

Deb's Digest Blog

As Scott mentioned yesterday, the Seas with Nemo and Friends was an evolution of the Living Seas pavilion. The remake was quite refreshing offering new ways to learn about the sea and breathe life into what was once a tired, old poorly attended Living Seas pavilion. The overall theme is now tied into the animated feature "Finding Nemo"! It was officially dedicated in January 2007.

I love the themeing of this area outside and inside. One of my favorite exterior locations is where the Sea Gulls are... as they chant "Mine Mine Mine"..... Thus, my photo for Pic of the Week: The Seas with Nemo and Friends

Disney Pic of the Week: Technology

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

We all know Walt Disney loved technology as it gave his vision life. The two Innoventions pavilions in Epcot's Future World present sponsored exhibits showing how today's technology makes our lives better. I took a tour of The Vision House by Green Builder Media which demonstrated the latest in green building methods and how the use of technology saves both energy, resources and money for the family who "lives" there.

If I was to build a house today, I would use many of the ideas found in the Vision House including this Trane ComfortLinkâ„¢ II XL950 Wi-Fi Thermostat which is an easy-to-use, programmable, digital thermostat controller that gives remote access, live weather and more, all on a beautiful color touch-screen display (Source: trane.com). The smart house is here today and it is much different than what was envisioned back in the 20th century.
