DDW Pic 1848. Space Mountain



 
Space Mountain represents a "futuristic" type of attraction in Tomorrowland. As I was walking on the path between Storybook Circus and Tomorrowland, I noticed this photo opportunity presenting itself. The Roy O. Disney steam train was chugging by, which is the oldest "attraction" in Walt Disney World, built in 1916. I like the historic versus the futuristic aspect of this view.

DDW Pic 1847. Tomorrowland Speedway

Tomorrowland Speedway
Six days from now, Walt Disney World will celebrate its 45th birthday. The Magic Kingdom opened on October 1st, 1971. I thought it was appropriate that I was driving car number "71" on Tomorrowland  Speedway today. This is a shot of the hood of my car.

DDW Pic 1846. World Showcase Lagoon

World Showcase Lagoon
The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is underway, and we enjoyed visiting tonight. It was a beautiful night to sample foods from around the world. This was my view at sunset from the area in between Mexico and Norway.

DDW Pic 1845. Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth
Spaceship Earth is a world famous theme park icon, and I'm always looking for an interesting angle for a photo. Today, I saw this view while walking by Morocco in World Showcase. This shot was taken thru the outside seating area of Spice Road Table and across the lagoon. You can also see a "Friendship" boat in the foreground.

DDW Pic 1844. Lilly Belle Steam Train

Lilly Belle Steam Train
The Lilly Belle Steam Train has been circling the Magic Kingdom since the park opened in 1971. However, due to some mechanical problems, it has been out of commission for the last four years. It is now preparing to re-enter service in the near future, and I was able to take this shot in the "roundhouse" while on a backstage tour a few weeks ago.

DDW Pic 1843. Seven Seas Lagoon

Seven Seas Lagoon
Seven Seas Lagoon is the man-made lake next to the Magic Kingdom. Boats carry thousands of guests to and from that park throughout each day. I took this shot a few weeks ago, while riding in one of those boats at sunset.

DDW Pic 1842. Jammin' Chefs

Jammin' Chefs
One of my favorite live acts at Walt Disney World is the JAMMitors. This percussion trio normally performs at Epcot using drum sticks on trash cans, pails, and buckets. However, during the Food and Wine Festival, they play on stoves, pots, and pans. I took this shot while at Epcot last week.
