At Epcot with Neighbors

My wife Vickie and ! enjoyed lunch at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop before meeting up with some friends at Epcot. I took a photo of the classic Mickey holes in the hamburger press. The Cast Member cooks are happy to show it off!

We rendezvoused with Bill and Debbie in the France Pavilion. It was one of the first warm sunny days in Florida in weeks! (Floridians usually don't suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, but the 2009-10 winter has really confused some Florida residents and "snowbirds"). On this day, we were smiling! I took this photo of Debbie and Bill inside the Stave Church in the Norway Pavilion. It was Debbie's birthday!

We checked out the Enoteca Castello Wine Shop in the Italy Pavilion. For several years, Mickey has been hiding at the left front of the wine counter. The images present when I updated the Hidden Mickeys book were classic Mickey holes in the woodwork. These holes were gone, but Bill spotted a newer classic Mickey in the refurbished woodwork. Thanks, Italy!

We completed our afternoon at World Showcase with a visit to the Impressions de France movie. I always enjoy this journey through France, accompanied by relaxing classical French music.

A Disney Wedding

On the first day of spring, my wife Vickie and I were honored to be invited to a wedding at Disney World. We arrived at the Wedding Pavilion near the Grand Floridian Resort before 5 p.m. At one point before the ceremony, some of the guests stood and looked left through the windows of the pavilion and spotted the Cinderella Carriage approaching! You can see Cinderella Castle through the rear window of the pavilion.

After the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom were spirited away in the Cinderella Carriage.

Mickey Mouse came to the wedding reception, too! He danced and posed for photos with the celebrants. In this photo, Susie the bride smiles with her mother Rita, Mickey, and her sister Sheri.

Mickey and Friends

I checked out the classic Hidden Mickey inside the rear of the Wedding Pavilion, on the grate or vent (actually, it's repeated on three grates) near the ceiling. It's still there!

My friends and neighbors look for Hidden Mickeys, too! Several folks (Marc, Bob and Rita, Cheryl, Richard, and Jim) spotted a classic Mickey on the right rear hip of the horse at the right front of the Cinderella Carriage horse train.
